Review

From Publishers Weekly
Beishir ( Angels at Midnight ) pens a winner with this gripping thriller. Jaime Lynde's father has been missing for 19 years, and when she learns of his covert career in the OSS and the CIA, she becomes convinced that he is alive and his whereabouts concealed for sinister reasons. The plot elements are familiar: obfuscating CIA operatives; an agent who vanishes into deep cover; an elaborate official cover story; and people who begin to die under mysterious circumstances. But Beishir's galloping pace revitalizes these standbys, and she confidently builds to a revelatory and spellbinding finale. And in the midst of all the intrigue, a romance develops for Jaime--but the sex is more slow burn than Beishir's trademark high sizzle, as if Beishir herself was too involved in the moves and countermoves of espionage to concentrate on bedroom dramas.

From the Author

When I was working on this book back in 1986, I'd originally planned to have the climax take place in Amsterdam. As fate would have it, however, President Reagan ordered the air strike on Libya and the the idea of sending my characters into the Middle East seemed a much better option.

Berkley originally published the book as A Time for Legends in 1990, with a lovely cover that didn't really say anything about the story. I got tired of having to say, with great embarrassment, "I have no idea" when people asked what that title meant (thanks, marketing chimps--and I mean that in the most sarcastic way possible), so when I regained the rights to it and decided to publish it as an ebook, some changes were in order....
