"Vivian Miller is a dedicated CIA counterintelligence analyst assigned to uncover the leaders of Russian sleeper cells in the United States. On track for a much-needed promotion, she's developed a system for identifying Russian agents, seemingly normal people living in plain sight. After accessing the computer of a potential Russian operative, Vivian stumbles on a secret dossier of deep-cover agents within America's borders. A few clicks later, everything that matters to her--her job, her husband, even her four children--are threatened. Vivian has vowed to defend her country against all enemies, foreign and domestic. But now she's facing impossible choices. Torn between loyalty and betrayal, allegiance and treason, love and suspicion, who can she trust?"--… (mais)

This is a tough one to review. Parts of the book have you sitting on the edge of your seat, while other parts seem to drag on endlessly. Overall very enjoyable with a few unexpected twists, but also with quite a few predictable moments. ( )

It had been years since a book kept me up all night - but Karen Cleveland writes "page-turners" so well - I couldn't put it down!. With her CIA background - you are left wondering how much truth is in her books. ( )

Originally the book grabbed me and about half-way through it dragged. I feel like there was repetition but I can't point to specifics. I have forgotten almost everything except the ending was intriguing. ( )

I am very excited about the release of this debut spy thriller written by former CIA analyst Karen Cleveland. I was lucky to receive a digital advance reader’s copy a few months ago and have been recommending it for a while for customer holds.

The reviews have been mixed, so all I have to say is that I stayed up until 1 a.m. two nights in a row, work nights (!) in order to finish it. I don’t read books to find the faults; I read them for pleasure, and this one fit the bill for me.

The main character, Vivan, is a married CIA Analyst (natch) with four young children. She works for the Counterintelligence Center, Russia Division, which is searching for agents who are running sleeper cells in the U.S. During the course of her research, she discovers something ominous that directly affects her family, and that is where the book really takes off. Written in the present, with flashbacks to her relationship with her husband, it is almost impossible to stop reading.

Even Lee Child says, “Prediction: If you read chapter one, you’ll read chapter two. If you read chapter two, you’ll miss dinner, stay up far too late, and feel tired at work tomorrow. This is that kind of book. Superb.” I have to concur with his statement on this book, as that is exactly what happened when I read it.

The author does a fabulous job of ending many of the chapters with bombshells that left me gasping. The suspense and tension in this book were so high that at times I covered my eyes with my hand with just enough room to peek between my fingers at the text I was reading! That was really a first for me in the hundreds of books I’ve read as a bibliophile and librarian. I wanted to skim the pages at times to get to the next part of the story. My emotions were all over the place while reading it, and I even read the ending three times, just to let it all sink in. It’s not without a few flaws (plot holes), but the story was so enjoyable that I happily overlooked them when I saw them. Need to Know will make a great movie, and I’m pretty sure it’s already been optioned. I’m always so impressed with debut authors who pull of such great first novels. Highly recommended! Happy Reading!

Gaslighting: the novel. I liked the premise enormously, but it makes me crazy to see men convince women they should ignore their instincts. ( )
