Lea Carpenter with Kate Brosnan

Red, White, Blue combines the tension of a psychological thriller with the sensitivity of an insightful memoir. Lea Carpenter proved her writing chops in Eleven Days, her moving first novel written in the voice of the mother of a specialist ops agent awaiting word of her son’s fate. Steeping herself in the world of espionage for the one and contemporary warfare for the other, Carpenter beguiles the reader with her grasp of the myriad ramifications of family relationships amidst mystery, tragedy and loss.
