    I haven’t read anything by Dan Fesperman before, but I really enjoyed this fast - paced thriller which offers a bit of back story on 9/11 and the failure of our own government agencies to trust and share information with each other.

Many have compared this novel to Tom Clancy, and I would just say that The Cover Wife is a much more enjoyable read for avoiding all the inscrutable technology that Clancy employs in his novels. Highly recommended for readers of political thrillers.

    The Cover Wife feels very much like the political thrillers of the Tom Clancy sort, and while it definitely follows the slow burn nature of a Clancy novel, it manages to do so more quickly - which is a good thing. The story is told from multiple perspectives, the primary being Claire, an agent based in Paris that is sent to Hamburg, Germany on assignment as the wife of an author of a book that is likely to inflame members of Al-Qaeda.

The story is told from multiple perspectives, the primary being Claire, an agent based in Paris that is sent to Hamburg, Germany on assignment as the wife of an author of a book that is likely to inflame members of Al-Qaeda. But Claire isn't being told everything by her team or her handler, as she discovers on her side mission to observe an report on a group of young Muslim men that includes Mahmoud. The reader also hears the story from his perspective, as a young man with an American mother and a Moroccan father that is trying to be accepted into the group that runs into the speed bump of a fellow acolyte's wife, who makes him question the choices he's making. The final perspective is from another alphabet agent, the rounds out the story and helps makes the reader question just beneficial it is to have multiple agencies working with or against each other in "America's" attempts to root out terrorism, occasionally to devastating effect. This book is not necessarily for someone who's looking for a page-turning thriller, but if you enjoy the slow build-up to a complicated story this is a great book to dive into.

It will be important and significant that this timeframe was decided for the story, and all will be revealed during the finale of this tense and perfectly paced novel. CIA Agent Claire Saylor meets with one of her superiors to learn about her next mission. It turns out she is being sent to Hamburg, Germany, to pose as the wife of a controversial Professor and politico who has seriously angered the Muslim world with his depiction and interpretation of their sacred Quran. Also in Hamburg at the same time is a young Muslim man named Mahmoud who is spending time at a place called Al Quds prior to attending the wedding of one of his colleagues. It will slowly be revealed that the group at Al Quds have a dangerous agenda of their own. As Claire is settling into her role as the wife of the outspoken academic named Winston Armitage, she also briefs him on her role as part of his security force and needs to learn the landscape quickly to keep him safe. During this time, Winston is set to make several local appearances and lectures which will put him directly in the line of fire. She hears him speak with the press and denounce many of the Quran’s texts that are held sacred, including the prophecy of Muslim’s sacrificing themselves in the name of martyrdom and the hundreds of heavenly virgins who will be waiting for them on the other side. Things will get interesting when another special agent from the FBI decides to settle into the same area for surveillance on the Middle Easterners in the area and their possible connections to Al Queda. Even though they are on the same team, some of Agent Donlan’s actions will put Claire’s mission in jeopardy. The danger escalates in a sudden, violent event whereby Claire was speaking with one of their security force, a man named Lute, when he is violently attacked and has his throat cut by a Middle Eastern man dressed all in white. It turns out the killer was a cook at the hotel and Claire is overwhelmed with fear of how close she may have come to death herself. Claire is nearly taken off the assignment by her handler when a photo surfaces of the group of Muslim men they were currently tracking. Claire knows she was not the one who took this photo and would never endanger her own mission. It is only later that we learn it came from Donlan, who is on his own mission and had no idea of the negative impact of such a photo appearing public ally could cause. A huge plot twist occurs which turns the entire mission upside down and ends up seeing Claire going rogue on her own in defiance of her own agency. Things will culminate at the wedding of one of Mahmoud’s colleagues. Claire and Donlan both plan on surveilling this event and they will not be the only international agency there. It is at this point where we will learn for sure what role Mahmoud is playing in this game and just how dangerous his colleagues really are. It is the last chapter of the novel, set on September 11, 2001, where the jaw-dropping connections of the players involved up to this point with the biggest terrorist act ever committed on U.S. soil will all come to light. This was an absolutely stunning way to finish this taut novel. THE COVER WIFE is the first novel I have read from author Dan Fesperman, but it made such an impression on me that I want to seek out his back-titles as well. This novel was the thinking-man’s espionage book and the type of story you will have a difficult time not finishing in one sitting. I loved Fesperman’s writing style that did not overload you with data and acronyms but made you feel the entire time that you were there with the characters and experiencing each plot twist along with them. A brilliant read! Reviewed by Ray Palen for Book Reporter

I found The Cover Wife to be an intelligently written spy thriller that kept my attention throughout. It follows CIA agent Claire Saylor as she goes undercover as the wife of a Professor at a conference in Hamburg. Parallel to Claire’s story is that of Mahmoud Yassin, a member of the Hamburg cell, a group of radical Islamists plotting something big, and recruiting new members in order to build the cell. This is a fictionalised story drawing on the knowledge that some of the radicals in the Hamburg cell of radical Islamists went on to be some of the hijackers involved on 9/11 together with others who were also involved in the 9/11 plot. I find it really interesting when some of the characters within a fictional story are infamous in real life, and some of the characters that Mahmoud interacted with were the hijackers. This book weaves fact seamlessly into fiction, which added to the tension. We also get another perspective, from a member of another agency, given that there are occasions when agencies do not work together for a common goal. The Cover Wife was a thoughtful and intelligent spy thriller that is both gripping and poignant, given that we already know what happened on 9/11.

The Cover Wife follows Claire into 1999 in Hamburg, where she poses as the wife of an academic peddling a new Koranic translation. She ends up falling into another, much more important operation. As Claire seeks to learn the truth, she follows Moroccan Muslim Mahmoud as he gains access to an al Qaeda terrorist cell. Can Claire discover the cell's secrets? I really enjoyed the multiple storylines in this book - getting Claire and Mahmoud's perspectives really filled out the story. Dan Fesperman has created a complex plot with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader hooked. The story is dramatized from real events, which made it feel even more devastating to hear. Fesperman is a great narrator - the only downside of having a single narrator for the multiple perspectives was that it was easy to get confused as to who was narrating, Claire or Mahmoud. But I enjoyed his voice and intonation - he clearly has a talent for narration as well as for writing. I recommend this one if you like thrillers by Tom Clancy, Daniel Silva and the like!

Everyone one seems to be working at cross purposes, and even as those converge, Claire has to go outside of channels to find vital information. A simple low budget conference babysitting gig has bodies piling up, yet backup from the CIA is apparently pulled. Not only are more lives endangered, but Claire has suspicions that the radicals have major plans. The plot is believable, characters well motivated, and setting well integrated. Instead of selecting a female reader for the book written mostly in Claire's viewpoint, the author narrates this book himself. Not a problem, as Fesperman has a pleasing voice and smooth reading style that moves things right along in this fast paced listen.

Claire is a compelling renegade for a CIA operative and acts as the moral conscience of the book. The other players are well-drawn and even the "bad guy" characters have some nuance. It becomes a page-turner in the second half as the action ratchets up. Both Paris & Germany are real to the reader as the plot unfolds complimenting the spy craft detail with real places. Helen from Safe Houses makes a great cameo that was great fun with a pop of suspense.

Fesperman does a great job writing characters and espionage / international incident novels. He also does a fine job writing a more relationship-focused story, I just don't enjoy them as much. There was nothing wrong with this one - it just wasn't what I wanted it to be. Had I gone in not knowing his work, and looking forward to another full-blown spy story, I probably would have given it a much higher rating. As it is I had to net at 3 because it was a bit of a slog for me in a handful of places. Kudos to him on doing his own reading though, as he's a fantastic audio book narrator! His narration was literally the reason I was able to keep going... I found him to offer just the right blend of emphasis and more straightforward narration, in a way that I thought brought the characters to life and kept the story as interesting as possible. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.

    This CIA thriller has a Tom Clancy vibe. The story takes place in 1999 and gives a behind the scenes look at the Muslim radicals behind the 9/11 terrorist attack. While the story is fictional, it's based on many facts discovered about the members of Al-Qaeda who carried out the deadly attacks. While the story was interesting for the historical components, the characters and plot itself were stiff and undeveloped. I wanted to finish, but wasn't captivated.

From what the author said in the acknowledgements it’s a mix of fiction and non-fiction and overall a great read!
