Sophie Kohl is living a nightmare. Minutes after she confesses to her husband, a mid-level American diplomat in Hungary, that she had an affair while they were in Cairo, he is shot and killed.

Stan Bertolli, a Cairo-based CIA agent, has fielded his share of midnight calls. But his heart skips a beat when, this time, he hears the voice of the only woman he ever truly loved ask why her husband has been assassinated.

Omar Halawi has worked in Egyptian intelligence for years, and he knows how to play the game. But the murder of a diplomat in Hungary has ripples all the way to Cairo, and Omar must follow the fallout wherever it leads.

As these players converge on Cairo, Olen Steinhauer masterfully unveils a portrait of a marriage, a jigsaw puzzle of loyalty and betrayal, against a dangerous world of political games where allegiances are never clear and outcomes are never guaranteed.

Review:

"One of the hottest names in spy fiction today....Entertaining." USA Today

Review:

"Elaborate, sophisticated.....A long, twisty road full of cleverly placed potholes and unexpected turns....Mr. Steinhauer draws his spies as flesh-and-blood characters in whom his readers invest both attention and emotion." Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Review:

"A stunning stand-alone that is as emotionally rich as it is layered with intrigue....It has become de rigeur to compare Steinhauer to le Carre, but it's nearly time to pass the torch: for the next generation, it's Steinhauer who will become the standard by which others are measured." Booklist (starred review, Best Books)

Victoria R Copelton, April 15, 2015 (view all comments by Victoria R Copelton)
I read a lot of books but rarely enjoy one as much as the Cairo Affair. It is full of fully developed like able and not so likeable characters. The spy network is believable. With it's shady situations and incisive depictions of "jobs" in the process of course there is a murder, a love story but the writing never lets the reader down.
