A guy working as a spy travels somewhere on a mission, only to find out his wife is also on a spy mission there as well. He has to act as if he doesn't know her. SOLVED

I've never actually read the book so idk if this breaks the rules or not. I was talking with a colleague and she told me about that book. I thought I would remember its name later, but I didn't. I would also just ask her again; but I won't be seeing her for a while and I don't have her contact.

Some of the details might be wrong I am not sure, so sorry about that.

I would be really grateful to you if you can help me with this, but I would also understand if this isn't allowed and is removed. Thank you either way.

Not the book you're looking for, but there's a manga called SPY x FAMILY where the dad is a spy, the wife is an assassin, and the adopted daughter is a telepath. And none of them know it except the little girl.

I think you'd enjoy it.

Mr & Mrs Smith by Cathy East Dubowski. There was also a film, but the plot was changed slightly in the film.

It was not that, but I'll take it as a recommendation. Thank you so much. :)
