Need To Know by Karen Cleveland


*Many thanks to the publishers for my review copy!

About the book:

Vivian Miller is a CIA analyst assigned to uncover Russian sleeper cells in the USA. After accessing the computer of a potential Russian spy, she stumbles on a secret dossier of deep-cover agents living in her own country. Five seemingly normal people living in plain sight.

A few clicks later, everything that matters to Vivian is threatened – her job, her husband, even her four children . . .

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?

Will her next move be the right one?

My thoughts:

I had been really looking forward to this one. The marketing campaign had been super fun, I got to be CIA Agent! Check out my Instagram to see the goodies because it wont let me post a photo here! 🙂

Anyway, Need To Know was a much-talked about book so I was really excited to get stuck into it, which I managed to do over the Christmas holidays! I’m not going to lie, I found it a bit slow to start, with a lot of focus being on thoughts and emotions as opposed to actual stuff happening, if that makes sense?! But, once it gets going, it REALLY gets going!

I’m a huge fan of CIA/FBI, basically any Agency-type books. I love the covert-ness (probably not a real word, but hey!) of it all. The secrets, the slyness, it all makes for a great read because you know something is going to happen, but you have no idea what direction it will come from. Need To Know definitely had this in spades!

It’s hard to know how much of this is actually possible in real life, because Need To Know required a little suspension of belief at times. But if it can be done in real life, then OMG because its crazy to think that this sort of thing can happen. It makes for interesting reading though, and it will definitely pull you in!

Definitely enjoyed this one. It is gripping, and once it gets going, its pretty fast-paced too. It left me with questions at the end, so I’m hoping there’s another book coming as I’d love some answers, haha!

Recommended for sure!
