In this fast-paced, tightly woven espionage story, Chris Morehouse, a British contractor for the CIA, must intercept an assassin in Berlin. The shooter’s target: an Iranian nuclear scientist who wants to defect to the West. With minimal intelligence on the assassin—positioned somewhere in a specific high-rise—Chris must find and eliminate the threat. One split-second before the trigger-pull, Chris realizes the assassin is someone he knows . . . very well. He freezes in the gut-wrenching decision—save the defector and kill his friend, or fail in his mission and let the shooter go free—and then . . . In Mask of Deceit, David Davies takes readers on a journey that spans the globe from the United Kingdom to Germany, India to Greece, and the United States to Sweden. The plot weaves and spins, pitting intelligence agencies and spies against each other who all have one thing in common—deceit. Will Chris play the pawn and complete his mission, or will he let emotions rule?
