“Bodman’s hard-won insider information and sheer storytelling talent make this a book to remember.” ––Lee Child, international bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series and films
Karna Bodman’s rich career with the White House, serving as the Deputy Press Secretary and later the Senior Director and spokesperson for the National Security Council, has helped her to become an award-winning author of five international crime thrillers. Her latest novel, Trust But Verify, follows the Director of The White House Office of Homeland Security Samantha Reid in a rare night away from Washington D.C., enjoying herself at a Florida charity ball. A bomb tears through the festivities, Reid herself narrowly escaping with her life. Scared but not beaten, she returns to The White House, only to be followed by hitmen suspected to be linked to shadowy Russian oligarchs. When FBI special agent Brett Keating discovers Reid was the target of the bombing, he comes to the Director’s aid, at the same time unraveling a sinister plot that extends beyond the borders of the United States.
