Product description

Review

"There's the mission the public knows, and the mission we'll never see. Matthew Palmer knows both, which is what makes this novel crackle with complexity and authority. What a debut."--Brad Meltzer, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"A thriller of great integrity and intelligence...I highly recommend it."--Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"The American Mission is one of those wonderful novels, where great storytelling is woven through with the intricate detail only a knowledgeable insider can supply. I loved it!"--Iris Johansen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Live to See Tomorrow

"Superb!...With The American Mission, Palmer joins the exalted ranks of Follett, Forsythe, and Clancy."--Tess Gerritsen, International Bestselling Author

"Reminiscent of Graham Greene, Mr. Palmer is far better than John le Carre. This is the sort of book you don't want to end."--Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Spies

About the Author

Matthew Palmer is a twenty-year veteran of the U.S. Foreign Service, currently serving as the director of Multilateral Affairs in the State Department's Bureau of Asian and Pacific Affairs. A life member of the Council of Foreign Relations, Palmer has worked as a diplomat all over the world. While on the secretary of state's policy planning staff, Palmer helped design and implement the Kimberly Process for certifying African diamonds as "conflict-free." It was this experience in Africa that served as that foundation for The American Mission.
