LoveReading View on The Mulberry Bush

Maxim Jakubowski's November 2015 Book of the Month.

Veteran thriller writer McCarry returns with a poignant spy tale of mixed loyalties, betrayal and the collapse of political idealism in which the conflict between the power of love and revenge anchors a complex plot in reality and fate. Deeply scarred by the CIA's earlier betrayal of his father, a devious but bright American spy determines to get his own back and when he falls hard for the beautiful daughter of a famous Argentinian revolutionary it soon becomes unclear who is manipulating who and where feelings become calculations. The complex tale covers much of the geopolitical struggles in the Middle East and South America of the past decades and quickly transforms into a breathless love story allied with a devious spider's web of a thriller. Adding such a fragile human element to a Le Carre-like deviousness makes this a terribly bittersweet read in which a master storyteller chronicles the secret world and anchors it in a melancholy reality. Like a spear to the heart. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

The Mulberry Bush Synopsis

I became a spy because my father before me was a spy. Although I am, for the time being, hiding something from you. In a rose garden in Buenos Aires, a young American spy meets the beautiful daughter of a famous Argentinian revolutionary. They fall in love. But he is no ordinary spy - and she is no ordinary woman. For he has a hidden agenda: to avenge his father, who died penniless and friendless on the streets of Washington. In Luz, he seems to have found an ally for his secret mission. But, as his fate becomes further entwined with hers, he soon finds himself caught in a perilous web of passions, loyalties and lies that stretches back to the darkest days of the Cold War.
