Shelfari edited the description of Solution Squared Friday, July 22, 2011.
Courtney Bergstrom: Her inimitable aptitude for analysis, lets her see things – things the rest of us don’t, or perhaps can’t. Her mind operates as smoothly, and as quickly, as a computer – one or zero, on or off. At twenty-five years of age, she will mastermind and execute one of the most intricate defections in the history of espionage. Whitney Bergstrom: Quick, agile, deviously cunning, and with a demeanor most often described as dispassionate, she appears and disappears like a shadow, on a cloudy day. At twenty-five years of age, she will kill a man, with nothing more than her bare hands, and never give it a second thought. Together they are the CIA’s latest solution – squared. Catch is, the bad guys have no idea there are two of them. Meet Christine Nelson, the always bubbly and absurdly efficient Staff Attaché, attached to the US Embassy, London – aka Courtney OR Whitney Bergstrom. Catch is, unless they want you to, you’ll never know which one of them she is. Just one of the many benefits of being identical twins. What at first appears to the sisters, to be an intriguing one of a kind opportunity, quickly becomes a daily life and death struggle as they weave their way through the onslaught of deceit, danger, and daily insanity that is life as a CIA field agent. In the end, they will discover one of the harshest realities of life as spy – the good guys don’t always win. Their first field supervisor’s cynical statement that ‘…in this business, at some point, everyone dies,’ will in the end, prove to be a chilling reality. SOLUTION SQUARED is an espionage thriller that will take the reader on a fastpaced, methodical journey, through multiple cities on three continents, and ends with an unpredictable twist.
