    schema:description "My most important secret--and this is how I met my sons' father--is that I was once a spy. It's 1986, the heart of the Cold War, and Marie Mitchell is an intelligence officer with the FBI. She's brilliant and talented, but she's also a black woman working in an all-white boys' club, and her career has stalled with routine paperwork--until she's recruited to a shadowy task force aimed at undermining Thomas Sankara, the charismatic, revolutionary president of Burkina Faso, whose Communist ideology has made him a target for American intervention. In the year that follows, Marie will observe Thomas, seduce him, and ultimately, have a hand in the coup that will bring him down. But doing so will change everything she believes about what it means to be a spy, a lover, and a good American. Inspired by true events--Thomas Sankara is known as Africa's Che Guevara, but his story is not widely known in the United States--this novel is sweeping historical fiction with an enthralling espionage thriller at its core, and introduces a powerful new literary voice."@en ;
