You may remember Mischa Berlinski as the National Book Award-nominated author of FIELDWORK. Now he’s back with his daring, eagerly anticipated second novel, PEACEKEEPING.

It’s about Terry, a former deputy sheriff and failed politician, who takes a job in Haiti helping to train the police. There he befriends an American-educated judge & convinces him to run against a corrupt but charismatic Sénateur in an upcoming election. But when Terry falls in love with the judge’s wife, the electoral drama threatens to become a disaster.

PEACEKEEPING has two starred, pre-publication reviews:

“On the troubled half-island of Haiti, love, power, and poverty collide, as do a tough Florida cop, a beautiful singer, politicians, and the United Nations post-2004 peacekeeping mission… [Berlinski] is a kind of heir to Graham Greene and Robert Stone, both for his excellent storytelling and for the way it can reveal a bigger picture.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Berlinski follows his National Book Award-nominated debut with a compelling tale that again immerses readers in the intrigues of an enthralling locale. The Haiti [Berlinski] describes is one in which there are always multiple versions of the truth, some we can bear to tell ourselves, and others we cannot.”Booklist, starred review
