Abstract / Summary

Anglo American archaeologist and pilot Maxine ‘Max’ Falkland encounters both skulls and sexism on the dig site at the bombed out shell of St. Bride's Church in London. A family request sends her to the Berlin International Film Festival, away from the dig and her growing relationship with John Knox. But after she sees John in Berlin with another woman, Max forces him to confess he is an American spy. When his current case collides with her family life, Max has to find a way to navigate layers of lies. As fireworks explode for the Fourth of July party, Max must make a dangerous choice if she wants to save both John and her family.

The Running Lie is the second in a trilogy of historical thrillers that follow Max through archaeology and espionage from April 1952 to June 1953. The first novel, Cold Crash, won the Cinnamon Press Debut Novel Prize.
