The Secret of Karabakh
By Fidan Bagirova
Alana Fulton, the beloved only child of wealthy American parents, is bookish and passionate about the past. In the final stages of a PhD in archaeology at the University of Cambridge, Alana’s future is bright and assured. Then comes the anonymous note: You are not who you think you are. Suddenly, everything in her life – including her sense of self – is under assault.
As Alana flees unknown pursuers and mounting danger, all that is familiar crumbles away. In time, it becomes clear to Alana why she’s being pursued; and she must ask herself where her loyalties and her future lie.
The Secret of Karabakh is a fascinating, compelling blend of all-action narrative and political history. Perfect for fans of The Goldfinch, The Beekeeper of Aleppo, and The Kite Runner.
