On a remote Swedish island, a little girl, Klara, grows up without a father. Now, thirty years later, she discovers a secret one for which powerful men will kill to keep undisclosed.

On the other side of the world, an old spy hides from his past. He used to be the best agent in the field. These days the only thing he lives for is swimming in the local pool.

When Klara is thrown into a terrifying chase across Europe, only the Swimmer can save her. But time is running out. . . .

Utterly mesmerizing and harrowing, The Swimmer is a riveting read right up to its stunning conclusion.

A deep-cover CIA agent races across Europe to save the daughter he never knew in this electrifying, hypnotic debut thriller (Entertainment Weekly).
