Title: The Moroccan Girl
Author: Charles Cumming
A fantastic modern day spy tale that fits in so well with what is happening in the western world. Conspiracy theorists will have a great time with this offering comparing it to what they hear/see in the news. I enjoyed the story and the author/untrained spy showed a lot of moxie and raw courage in order to complete his assigned task.
Kit Carradine is the successful author of several best-selling novels. When he is approached by MI6 and asked to carry out a simple task on behalf of his country while attending a literary festival in Morocco, he jumps at the chance.
But all is not as it seems. Carradine soon finds himself on the trail of Lara Bartok, a leading figure in Resurrection, a violent revolutionary movement targeting prominent right-wing political figures around the world. Caught between competing intelligence services who want Bartok dead, Carradine faces a choice: to abandon Bartok to her fate or to risk everything trying to save her.
