Enlightenment is a tense thriller about the return of an investigative journalist to Istanbul, the scene of her teenage love affair with Sinan, a Turkish boy, as well as the field of operations of her father; a CIA agent. She is forced to confront her past when she is asked by Sinan's wife to help her regain her son, taken away by the American authorities when Sinan is arrested trying to enter the States.
The gripping plot involves a retired secret service informer, a mysterious ‘trunk’ murder and a group of radical young students in a volatile political climate. Maureen Freely’s novel depicts a world where nobody is who they say they are and everyone is a suspect.
