Source of Deceit

Anna Jones, correspondent for the New York Daily Journal, is covering the apparent suicide of World Bank Executive Director Nou Channarong, when a key source on the story also turns up dead. Pursuing the truth—and a scoop—Anna follows a lead to Miami, where the trail points to Thailand. Meanwhile, the two deaths throw Nou's associates at the Bank into chaos, as covert operatives in Bangkok and rebels in Chiang Mai and Myanmar also scramble to adjust to the new realities. Despite threats to her life and livelihood, Anna is determined to get to the bottom of the story. Only by facing her nemesis Raven Garcia and confronting her long-distance boyfriend Viktor Simonson can she decipher the lies and the spin.
