The Foreign Intrigue Book Club will discuss Play the Red Queen by Juri Jurjevics
April 2021 Selection:
In this mystery set in 1963 Saigon, two agents for the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division, sergeants Ellsworth Miser and Clovis Robeson, have the daunting task of stopping an assassin known as the Red Queen, who leaves a "playing card bearing a red female figure" at the scene of her crimes.
"The plot speeds along faster than the Red Queen's Vespa . . . Jurjevics brings all of it to colorful, fragrant, often ugly life . . . Brace yourself." The New York Times Book Review
