A 41-year-old secret agent falls in love with a young woman on a bus, believing her to be the woman he was always meant to be with. Without ever speaking to her he begins a decades-long correspondence which crosses borders and spans decades. Told in plain yet eloquent language, MINOTAUR is one part spy novel and one part literary thriller. Lives are lost and the histories of people and nations unfold as the separate fates of its characters collide.
MINOTAUR, Brazos’ Book Group’s October choice, is a succinct literary thriller set in Israel and Europe. A little Graham Greene mixed with John le Carré, it’s a novel of desire, violence and impossible love, unlike anything you’ve ever read. A quiet and unsung masterpiece!
