MAJOR FILM IN THE WORKS FOR NEED TO KNOW: Universal bought the rights to NEED TO KNOW in a major deal, with Charlize Theron starring and producing.
INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR: Need to Know debuted at #10 on the New York Times hardcover list and #15 on the combined list. It also earned spots on the USA Today and Publishers Weekly lists.
INSIDER INTRIGUE BY A SEASONED CIA ANALYST: Karen Cleveland’s background in the CIA (eight years working Russia and counterterrorism issues, writing briefs for the US President, and earning more than a dozen Exceptional Performance Awards) percolates through the narrative and provides readers with an intimate insider’s look at government intelligence.
FAST-PACED DOMESTIC DRAMA: Like Need to Know and her previous novels, this novel balances psychological suspense; a gripping, relentless plot; and a moral choice between family and patriotic duty. This novel LEANS MORE INTO DOMESTIC SUSPENSE—focusing on a rogue agent grappling with the secrets, façades, and doldrums of suburban life.
CROSS-SELL: Cleveland’s previous novel, You Can Run, will be published in trade paperback in August 2022, and will feature an excerpt of The New Neighbor.
“Tighten your seatbelt and prepare for a roller coaster ride while confronting secrets, betrayal, long-term friendships in question; all while your life is in shambles, as you battle jealousy and/or paranoia…. Karen Cleveland cleverly mines her own experience as a CIA counterintelligence analyst to fashion an immersive and twisted tale with many red herrings and unexpected reveals. The gripping narrative boils over with menace, intrigue, suspense and escalates to a page-turning unexpected denouement.”—Mystery & Suspense Magazine
“Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to be a spy? In The New Neighbor, former CIA analyst Karen Cleveland shows you how to find the security threat in lurking in your own backyard. Filled with CIA insights that only an insider would know and every trick in the analyst’s toolbox … a cunningly constructed puzzle box of a thriller.”—Alma Katsu, author of Red Widow
“Clever…The strong plot takes several convincing twists…. Cleveland consistently entertains.”—Publishers Weekly
“Satisfying twists…It’s clear that we never really know our neighbors”—Kirkus Reviews
