The Geneva Option ePUB

by Adam LeBor A gripping thriller of international espionage and government corruption, pitting a sexy, young UN staffer against a brutal conspiracy to control Africa's mines.

Yael Azoulay does the United Nations' dirty work. Her job is to cut the behind-the-scenes deals that oil the wheels of diplomacy and big business-the ones we never get to hear about. Equally at home in the caves of Afghanistan, the slums of Gaza, and the world's corporate boardrooms, Yael can sweet-talk warlords, terrorists and CEOs. Until she decides that the ends no longer justify the means and goes rogue.

Yael is sent by the UN's Secretary General to Goma in eastern Congo to negotiate with Jean-Pierre Hakizimani, a Hutu warlord wanted for genocide. She offers him a deal: surrender to the UN tribunal, in exchange for a short sentence and a return to politics. The West's hunger for Coltan, a mineral vital for computers and cell phones found in Congo, means nothing matters more than stability in the region. But Yael soon realizes that Hakizimani was behind the death of her beloved older brother years before, and that the UN is prepared to turn a blind eye to mass murder-and to sanction it. Yael discovers that a secret cabal of high-ranking UN officials, mysterious businessmen, and corrupt politicians are planning to incite a continent-wide war to impose a protectorate on Congo, and thus take control of Coltan. With this knowledge, Yael finds herself on the run, hunted by the world's intelligence and law enforcement agencies-and haunted by her past-ultimately learning that salvation means not just saving other's lives but confronting her own inner demons.

Spanning New York City, Africa, and Switzerland, The Geneva Option is the first in a trilogy of gripping and intelligent conspiracy thrillers featuring Yael Azoulay. Written by a high-profile foreign correspondent and critically acclaimed investigative journalist, The Geneva Option takes readers on a nonstop journey through the secret corridors of power.
