Mary Louise Kelly: Anonymous Sources
The setting is Cambridge. Harvard University, to be precise. The crime: murder. The protagonist: one very smart reporter named Alexandra James, who gets pulled into a web of international intrigue that takes her from Cambridge to London to Pakistan.
These are the elements of a new spy thriller from Mary Louise Kelly, who spent 20 years as a producer, reporter and host for NPR and the BBC. Most recently, she was NPR’s intelligence correspondent.
Daily Beast: “I suspect that for every woman who’s ever tried to balance work and family, there comes a day when you hit the wall. I don’t mean your run-of-the-mill bad day, when the baby barfs down the back of your suit as you’re racing out the door. I’m not even talking about the stress-hive-inducing, babysitter-calls-in-sick-on-morning-of-crucial-client-presentation kind of day.”
