A new suspense novel is “Secrets of State” by Michael Palmer. Sam Trainor, once the South Asia expert in the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research, has moved into the private sector working as an analyst for Argus Systems. He soon discovers the Government and its hired contractors have vastly different motives. When he stumbles across an intelligence anomaly and digs into the source of the misinformation, he realizes there is more at stake than just bad intel.
