Abstract / Summary

In Cold Crash, archaeologist Max Falkland found herself drawn into a
dangerous Cold War spy game by the mysterious John Knox…
It’s just three weeks later and Max has found a quiet
archaeological dig in the bombed out shell of St. Bride’s Church in
London. Skulls and sexism she can deal with. But the return of Knox
brings questions. And trouble.
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.
