Description
A private airport security contractor becomes a counterterrorism operative to prevent a terrorist attack in this "timely, edge-of-the-seat thriller" (Bookpage) from the author of the #1 internationally bestselling The Intern's Handbook.
Kennedy—a private airport security contractor—knows more about airports than the head of the TSA, and he feels more comfortable in his British Airways Club World flatbed seat than in his own home. Haunted by the memory of his sister's death on 9/11, Kennedy takes his job and the protection of the American people very seriously. So when he's kidnapped and recruited into a CIA ghost operation known as Red Carpet, he jumps at the opportunity to become a civilian asset working with a team of some of the CIA's best counterterrorism analysts and spec ops soldiers as they race against the clock to stop the greatest terrorist threat the United States will ever face.

With the same bold voice that earned him rave reviews for his previous novels, Shane Kuhn's The Asset is an "exhilarating" (Publishers Weekly, starred review) read with an "ultimate twist that makes readers' jaws drop" (Kirkus Reviews).

        Starred review from May 9, 2016
        This exhilarating standalone from Kuhn (Hostile Takeover and one other John Largo novel) boasts a clever terrorist plot and an appealing everyman protagonist. Kennedy, driven by grief over his sister’s death on one of the planes hijacked on 9/11, has become an aviation security specialist, the best in the business. Consumed by work, he’s jolted out of his doldrums by a chance reunion with his sister’s childhood best friend, an indie musician now known as Love, and an offer to join Red Carpet, a CIA Clandestine Service operation investigating a suspected national attack from a mysterious global terrorist, Lentz. Kennedy and his team unwittingly put Lentz’s plan in motion and must race to deactivate 25 suitcase nukes installed in airports nationwide, even as they cope with betrayal from within. Kuhn’s gimmick of one-named characters quickly passes from affectation to annoyance, but the typical thriller tropes are rejuvenated by Kennedy’s refreshing differences from the usual action hero, including his newcomer reactions to violence and unusual perspective on terrorism.
