A dark thriller in the tradition of Le Carre
The first time she sees John Valsamis in her French countryside driveway, he says nothing before driving away. He returns the next day at the same time saying he needs her help. He wants her to find her former lover Rahim Ali, who he claims is a terrorist recruited by the Islamic Armed revolution he also shows her pictures of what the LAR has wrought on innocent people.-------------------- She agrees to help the DOD agent and journeys to Lisbon where he lives as a documents forger. Word gets around that Nicole Blake seeks Rahim Ali. When they finally meet, John shoots Rahim, but before he dies he directs Nicole to go to his office where she finds a suspicious looking document and its forgery. John plans to kill Nicole, but she eludes him while wondering what is going on and why evidence points toward Beirut just after the embassy bombings.----------------- Readers who like dark thrillers in the tradition of Le Carre will enjoy AN ACCIDENTAL AMERICAN. Nicole is a gusty quirky heroine who wants to be like her father even though he gave her up to the police. Her years in prison strengthened her resolve. Espionage thriller fans will enjoy her cat and mouse battle with a clever killing machine............Harriet Klausner

Very different - but didn't understand the ending!
Very different style of story telling. I found it very interesting and educational, but unfortunately I just didn't understand the ending..... So hard to give it more stars. Sigh.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
