DEFECTORS

The bestselling author returns on June 6, 2017 in America and June 1, 2017 in the UK with a fast-paced and richly imagined novel about an American spy, the Cold War’s most notorious defector, who fled Washington for the safety of Moscow-but never lost his talent for betrayal. Defectors is the gripping story of one family torn apart by their divided loyalties and a revealing look at Moscow at the height of the Cold War and the community of American and British defectors forced to make it their home. Kept apart from ordinary Russians, closely monitored by the KGB, granted special privileges but never trusted, these former spies now live under a kind of permanent house arrest in the society for which they have sacrificed everything, traitors who managed to escape one prison only to find themselves locked in another.
