The Reykjavik AssignmentYael Azoulay, 3by Adam LeBor

UN covert negotiator, Yael Azoulay, has been sent to Reykjavik to broker a secret meeting between the US President and her Iranian counterpart. Both parties want to reach agreement, but Yael soon realises that powerful enemies are preparing to sabotage the talks. Enemies for whom peace means an end to their lucrative profit streams.

In this gripping, intelligent thriller, Adam LeBor draws on twenty-five years of frontline reporting to show us who calls the shots in the corridors of power.
