City of the Sun by Juliana Maio
This was a wonderful historical fiction novel about life in Egypt during WWII. In Cairo, journalist Mickey Connelly writes articles no one will publish. The Brits want to throw him out of the country, but he meets Bill Donavan the head of the OSS and becomes a spy for the OSS and must find a Jewish scientist, the Americans need him to help build a bomb to end the war. He first meets the sister Maya and not knowing who she is pursues her and falls in love. How will it all end? Read City of the Sun to find out. This was a well developed suspenseful and well developed characters, I loved it. Thanks to Net Galley and Greenleaf Book Group.
