The Sisters: A Novel of Betrayalby Robert Littell
With last year's publication of his New York Times bestseller The Company, Robert Littell reestablished his position as one of our top writers of intelligent, ironic, and always entertaining espionage thrillers. The Sisters, a cult classic among aficionados is finally available again as Overlook republishes Littell's best.
Enigmatic and extremely dangerous, CIA legends Francis and Carroll have been dubbed "The sisters Death and Night" by their cohorts. But few know what they do. They plot, and they're plotting the perfect crime. They've located the perfect pawn-the Potter, the exiled ex-head of the KGB sleeper school-and, with artful deception, the Sisters coerce him into betraying his last and best sleeper, the man he considers his son. Once awakened, this sleeper, an assassin living secretly in the United States, will launch a mission of death-unless the Potter, in a desperate race against time, can stop him.
