P. DELANEY, author of THE GIRL BEFORE * "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, author of THE EXPATS * "First word to last, I needed to know! Karen Cleveland's spy thriller about a wife, mother and CIA analyst on the prowl for a Russian cell is a timely dance of intrigue and deception.

A need-to-read." * MICK HERRON, author of Dead Lions *
