Publisher's Summary

From author Lara Elena Donnelly comes a debut spy thriller, Amberlough, where a gay double agent schemes to protect his smuggler lover during the rise of a fascist government coup.

Trust no one with anything - especially in Amberlough City.

Covert agent Cyril DePaul thinks he's good at keeping secrets, especially from Aristide Makricosta. They suit each other: Aristide turns a blind eye to Cyril's clandestine affairs, and Cyril keeps his lover's moonlighting job as a smuggler under wraps. Cyril participates in a mission that leads to disastrous results, leaving smoke from various political fires smoldering throughout the city. Shielding Aristide from the expected fallout isn't easy, though, for he refuses to let anything - not the crooked city police nor the mounting rage from radical conservatives - dictate his life.

Enter streetwise Cordelia Lehane, a top dancer at the Bumble Bee Cabaret and Aristide's runner, who could be the key to Cyril's plans - if she can be trusted. As the twinkling lights of nightclub marquees yield to the rising flames of a fascist revolution, these three will struggle to survive using whatever means - and people - necessary. Including each other.

    "Loved my first read, loved listening to it even more!"

    This is such a fantastic debut. Mary Robinette Kowal's narration truly brings this book to life. So far this has been my favorite 2017 release!

    "good story, terrible voices"

    the voices were painful to listen to, although the story was good. Read this via e or paper book, not audio.

    "This book is both relevant and electric."

    Gorgeous at every turn, Donnelly' writing shines under the ministrations of Mary Robinette Kowal. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who loves debauchery, deco and deviousness.
