From M. L. Malcolm, the acclaimed author of Heart of Lies, comes a powerful sequel that spans the years from World War II to the turbulent 1960s—the riveting story of a family struggling with choices forced upon them by war . . . and the consequences that will take a generation to unfold.

Aman of many contradictions, Leo Hoffman is a Hungarian national with a French passport, a wealthy businessman with no visible means of support, and a devoted father who hasn't seen his daughter in years. He is also a spy.

Recruited by the Allies to help lay the groundwork for their invasion of North Africa, Leo intends to engage in as little espionage as possible—just enough to earn his American citizenship so he can get to New York and reunite with his daughter, Maddy. But while Leo dodges death in France and Morocco, Maddy is learning shocking truths about her father's mysterious past—haunting knowledge that will compel her down her own dangerous path of deception and discovery.

Review: Heart of Deception

User Review  - Denise Devine - Goodreads

Just as wonderful as book #1 (Heart of Deception). If you like a book with a complex plot and intriguing characters you can get involved with, this two book set is it. Read full review

Review: Heart of Deception

User Review  - Cayley - Goodreads

This was a fun book at the beginning, but when all of a sudden gansters and blackmailing feds are thrown on top of international spies, nazis, and a host of abandonings it's just overdone and silly. This was a fun beach read kind of fluff until the kitchen sink got thrown at the plot. Read full review
