Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Aleh Rumi, an Iranian-American woman, is an unlikely spy. An Oval Office decision pulls her into the world of espionage as she returns to Tehran to oversee her mother's rehabilitation. Fueled by her longstanding hatred of the repressive Iranian regime and its treatment of women, she steals information about the government’s foreign policy decisions. Aleh underestimates the terrible costs her spying will have on her parents and herself. But the intelligence she sends to the U.S. will reshape the President’s Mideast policies. “…brings readers into the operational side of the intelligence community, providing a seldom-seen view of the anxiety and action spies and their handlers endure. With this fast-paced, tense and realistic novel, Collins is hitting his stride as a storyteller.” —Jason Frye, Teakettle Junction Productions, Inc. “The Walk In presents a conflict anyone would dread facing. Aleh’s desire to serve her adopted country battles with loyalty to her highly-placed family back home in Iran. Jim Collins takes us—with scenic word paintings and a punchy, straightforward style—wondering all the way to the end.” —Linda Cross, Cape Fear Fiction Writers “…an instantly engaging, original, and tautly drawn espionage thriller focused on a young woman torn between Iran, the land of her birth, and the United States, her adopted home. The novel is distinguished by suspense that builds on every page…” —Lee Ewing, writer and former intelligence officer “If you enjoy spy-thrillers, Jim Collins’ second novel has it all.” —Linda Thomas, Cape Fear Fiction Writers
