Riassunto: Former intelligence officer Harry Strand, a widower, has started a new life as an art dealer and has fallen in love with Mara Song, a beautiful young Asian art collector. But Harry's peaceful world is shattered when he discovers a shocking videotape of his wife's death in Mara's tape collection. Instinctively, Harry knows the hard questions created by this discovery can only be answered if he resurrects old secrets from his intelligence career, secrets that he hoped would stay forever buried. From Rome to Paris to London, Strand will strike bargains with old enemies and find himself fleeing from old allies. Once again, deception becomes his talisman as he learns the painful truth that a secret agent can never retire - and never surrender.
L'autore: After beginning his writing career in 1983 with the publication of two mystery novels in the same year, David Lindsey's tenth suspense novel, The Color of Night, was published by Warner books in April 1999. In the early years of Lindsey's writing career he published five psychological mystery novels featuring Houston homicide detective Stuart Haydon. In 1990 Lindsey began featuring protagonists other than Haydon, including a Latina homicide detective named Carmen Palma in the critically acclaimed Mercy, and Irina Ismaylova (a Russian assassin) and Cate Cuevas (an FBI undercover agent) in 1996's Requiem for a Glass Heart. As Lindsey's popularity has grown so has his international reputation. His books are now translated into 17 languages and in 1992 Body of Truth, set in Houston and Guatemala, won Germany's Bochumer Krimi Archiv award for the best suspense novel of the year. Lindsey's novels have also attracted the attention of Hollywood. Mercy completed filming in late 1998 and will be released as a feature film in 1999, and the several of the Stuart Haydon novels are currently in option negotiation. Lindsey grew up in the ranch country and oil fields of west Texas, studied English literature in university, and was an editor for many years with small publishers in Texas. He lives in Austin with his wife.
