LoveReading Expert Review of A Spy In Quarantine

‘A Spy In Quarantine’ is a brilliant and unique take on fiction using the recent pandemic as a plot device.

 ‘A Spy In Quarantine’ is a brilliant and unique take on fiction using the recent pandemic as a plot device.

When an academic study into coronavirus track and tracing stumbles across a U.S. spy, the named researchers and the ghost-writer who conducted and wrote the thesis, are at risk from more than just the virus.

I think this plotline is really inventive and a twist on the “coronavirus fiction” I’ve seen appear that takes on a science fiction or almost dystopian twist. The concept of track and trace and what secrets each individual, each contact could be revealing is really excellent. I found it a really innovative plot choice and couldn’t wait to see where the story took me.

We mainly follow Takis, a ghostwriter who is employed by university faculty and students alike to conduct research or write papers. A flawed but likeable character, as the plot starts to escalate this apparent ‘know-it-all’ quickly gets out of his depth, unsure of who to trust and what to do next. Along with Rachel, the girlfriend of one of the murdered grad students, Takis needs to work out whether he can be linked to the published paper and how to stay alive.

I liked the characters and the developing relationship between Rachel and Takis as they slowly begin to trust one another as they try to work out what’s going on and why the grad students credited for writing the paper have been murdered.

A brilliant concept executed well, with a great cast of characters and twists and turns that kept me immersed in the storyline until the very last page. I would recommend this book for all mystery fans.

A Spy In Quarantine Synopsis

A Spy In Quarantine

Be very careful who you track and trace. The coronavirus is deadly. Track and trace did not turn out well for Takis Soulivakis. The novel tells the story of two grad students who track the spread of Covid-19 from an infected patient who, unknown to them, is a U.S. spy employed by the CIA. When the grad students published a thesis of their findings — which was written for them by the ghostwriter Takis Soulivakis— they are murdered. The ghostwriter knows he might be the next to be killed. Watch him struggle to survive.
