In the sultry, young Argentinean, Luz, the spy thinks he has found an ally. Like his father, her parents also met a terrible fate. But as his path becomes further entwined with hers, the spy finds himself caught in a perilous web of passions, affiliations, and lies that spans three continents and stretches back to the Cold War.
Steeped in the knowledge of modern-day tradecraft, The Mulberry Bush is a potent and seductive novel that explores what happens when the most powerful political motivator is revenge.

A bit too much romance for me...
Charles McCarry is a very good writer. I've read other books by him and the writing in this book was as good as the rest. But I'm not really a romance reader and there was too much of that in this book for me. The story was good and the outcome satisfying, but the love story between our spy and Luz just didn't hold my attention as much as the rest of the book and it took up a lot of book.
It's something I notice occasionally with older male writers; they just can't help but write ad nauseum about beautiful young women and their charms.
I went looking for a good modern spy novel and I felt like the spy portion played second fiddle in this book.
