A Map of Betrayal

A Map of Betrayal: A Novel - Ha Jin

Lilian Shang, the American daughter of the highest-placed Chinese spy ever captured by the FBI decides to search for her father's first wife's family in China. Her late father's long-time mistress provides key knowledge--and his diaries--to her.

In her search, she finds and learns more than she expected, as do the relatives she finds.

A good read, I kept having to remind myself that this is fiction. However, I doubt I will remember this book in a year.
