Publisher's Summary

In pursuit of a Russian sleeper cell on American soil, a CIA analyst uncovers a dangerous secret that will test her loyalty to the agency - and to her family.
What do you do when everything you trust might be a lie?
Vivian Miller is a dedicated CIA counterintelligence analyst assigned to uncover the leaders of Russian sleeper cells in the United States. On track for a much-needed promotion, she's developed a system for identifying Russian agents, seemingly normal people living in plain sight.
After accessing the computer of a potential Russian operative, Vivian stumbles on a secret dossier of deep-cover agents within America's borders. A few clicks later, everything that matters to her - her job, her husband, even her four children - are threatened.
Vivian has vowed to defend her country against all enemies, foreign and domestic. But now she's facing impossible choices. Torn between loyalty and betrayal, allegiance and treason, love and suspicion, who can she trust?

Critic Reviews

"Prediction: If you read chapter one, you’ll read chapter two. If you read chapter two, you’ll miss dinner, stay up far too late, and feel tired at work tomorrow. This is that kind of book. Superb." (Lee Child)
" Need to Know carves out a uniquely compelling space among thrillers: high-stakes international intrigue combined with high-drama domestic suspense. These richly overlapping layers of tension create a fast-paced, relentlessly gripping read." (Chris Pavone, New York Times best-selling author of The Expats)

Taut from beginning to end

The tension never lets up in this thriller. I would have liked it more if the heroine had been more of a heroine and less of a victim. The narrator was very good.

Great Read!!

Karen Cleveland has written a mystery novel that keeps you guessing through out the book.
I hope she follows up this book with a next one.
Her readers will want to know more about her main character, Vivian Miller. Plus, we would love to see what happens to Omar.
Congratulations on her choice of narrator, Mia Barron. Perfect voice for this novel!
