Need to Know by Karen Cleveland

On February 19, 2018

By Sophia Whitfield

Viv seems to have the perfect husband. With four young children, including a set of twins, she has come to depend on him. Her job is all consuming. If one of the children gets sick he is responsible for picking them up early from school.

But is her really the perfect man she believes him to be?

Viv is good at her job. She uncovers details about Russian criminals. She is close to a breakthrough, and then one morning she manages it. She breaks into a Russian criminal’s laptop and discovers the identities of five deep-cover agents. When she breaks into the computer five faces stare back at her. One of them she knows and loves – her dependable husband Matt.
She has to think quickly before making a decision. Will she confront him? Will she hide her discovery? Can it be true?

Vivian grapples with a solution.

A mesmerising, compulsive read that will keep you turning the page. You can buy the book here in Australia and here in the UK.
