"Waiting On" Wednesday: Heart of Deception

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Heart of Deception by M.L. Malcom
Harper Paperbacks, April 5, 2011


Leo Hoffman is a man of many contradictions. He is a Hungarian national with a French passport, a wealthy businessman with no visible means of support, and a devoted father who hasn’t seen his daughter in years. He is also a spy.

Recruited by the Allies to help lay the groundwork for their invasion of North Africa, Leo intends to do as little spying as possible; he just wants to earn his American citizenship, get to New York, and find his daughter, Maddy. But while Leo dodges death in France and Morocco, Maddy learns the truth behind her father’s mysterious past, and as she matures, this haunting knowledge compels Maddy down her own dangerous path of deception and discovery.

Spanning the years from World War II to the turbulent 1960s, this sequel to Heart of Lies tells the riveting story of a family struggling with the choices that war forces them to make, and the consequences that take a generation to unfold.

I read the first book in this series (that I was somehow unaware was a series), Heart of Lies, earlier this year. There were definitely some loose ends that it would be interesting to see tied up, so I'm excited at the prospect of this second book!

What are you "waiting on" this Wednesday?


  1. I picked up the first one at BEA (and also didn't realize it was a series). I hope to get to Heart of Lies before this one comes out!

  2. Gee, I didn't know it was a series either! Now, I'm looking forward to this one, too! Here's mine!

  3. Oh, this does sound good...I like reading about this time period.

    Here's my WOW:

    Click on my name....

  4. I have the first one around here on one of my TBR piles...thanks for reminding me to pull it out :)

  5. I didn't know this was a series either!
