I SAW YOU IN BEIRUT
In I Saw You in Beirut, a mysterious source of leaks on the Iranian nuclear industry, known only as F, sends an email from Tabriz: Help. Contact Almquist. Intelligence sources determine the message refers to Sara Almquist, a globetrotting epidemiologist, and seek her help to extract F from Iran. As Sara tries to identify F by dredging up long-forgotten memories about her student days at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her work in Lebanon and the Emirates, groups ostensibly wanting to prevent F's escape attack her repeatedly. However, she begins to suspect her current friendship with Sanders, a secretive State Department official, is the real reason she's being attacked.
Sara Almquist is shot at twice in one day. Albuquerque police fear her work for them as a science consultant on previous cases has put her in danger, but the accumulating evidence doesn’t make sense. Thus, when colleagues in the State Department invite Sara to arrange exchanges between scientists in the U.S. and Cuba, she jumps at the chance to get out of New Mexico and to work again with the mysterious Xave Zack. Maybe it’s not a wise decision.
