--Karen White, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on Legare Street A smart, exciting historical suspense novel set in Europe, Shanghai, and New York before World War II, Heart of Lies is a breathtaking introduction to M. L. Malcolm. This extraordinary new writer immediately takes an honored place among Frederick Forsyth (The Day of the Jackal), Ken Follett (Eye of the Needle), Susan Howatch (Glittering Images), and other masters of compelling historical fiction. Inspired by true events in the author's family's past, Heart of Lies is an extraordinary reading experience that Library Journal praises as, "A superbly crafted story, creatively capturing a slice of history with eloquence and realism."
