I'll tell you no lies / Amanda McCrina.


Set during the Cold War in upstate New York, Shelby Blaine, the teenage daughter of an Air Force intelligence officer, becomes entangled with an escaped Soviet pilot accused of being a spy.
New York, 1955. Shelby Blaine and her father, an Air Force intelligence officer, are wrenched away from their life in West Germany to New York's Griffiss Air Force Base, where he has been summoned to lead the interrogation of an escaped Soviet pilot. Still in shock from the car accident that killed her mother barely a month earlier, Shelby struggles with her grief, an emotionally distant father, and having to start over in a new home. A chance meeting with Maksym, the would-be defector, spirals into a deadly entanglement. The more Shelby learns of Maksym's secrets, including his detention at Auschwitz during the war, the more she becomes willing to help him. But as the stakes become more dangerous, Shelby begins to question everything she has been told. Can she trust a traitor with her life, or will it be the last mistake she ever makes? -- adapted from jacket
