“For decades to come the spy world will continue to be the collective couch where the subconscious of each nation is confessed.”—
GUADALAJARA, JA, MEXICO, December 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Author Lucy Kirk will be one of the featured authors in the upcoming Guadalajara International Book Fair 2021 with her published book titled The Poison Factory: A Spy Novel. The protagonist of the novel is Decktora Raines, who is on leave from the CIA, trying to escape memories of the agent she lost and the disappearance of her life partner, Alex. But when a Russian defector she once handled unexpectedly reaches out to her, urging her to come to London, her instincts take over. She arrives in London to find that another Russian defector has been murdered, and the only clues are claw marks and an unidentified white powder. As the bodies pile up, the London Metropolitan Police and the public begin to think a serial killer is on the loose. But Decky and her defector know the Russians are behind the killings. As the claw murders increase, with some of Decky’s London contacts falling victim, she must put the bad memories behind her and rely on finely-honed instincts to find the killers and figure out what they have to gain—and how to stop them from killing again.
“If you like Ludlum, Grisham, or Clancy, you’ll love Kirk. Amazing attention to detail and thrilling suspense. Excellent character development and plotline. Can’t wait for the sequel for more Decky!” — a Goodreads Review.
