Description

The basis for the hit Netflix series. A "paranoid, pulse-pounding thriller that could not be more prescient" (Joseph Finder) about one FBI's agents' attempt to unravel an international conspiracy that Lee Child calls 'irresistible.'"

At 1:05 A.M. the phone rings. A terrified young woman named Rose tells FBI Agent Peter Sutherland that two people have just been murdered and that the killer might still be in the house with her. One of the victims gave her this phone number with urgent instructions: "Tell them OSPREY was right. It's happening..."

The call thrusts FBI Agent Peter Sutherland into the heart of a conspiracy years in the making, involving a Russian mole at the highest levels of the U.S. government. Anyone in the White House could be the traitor. Anyone could be corrupted. To save the nation, Peter must take the rules into his own hands, question everything, and trust no one.

The Night Agent marks the return of the classic conspiracy thriller, and "drips with the kind of eye for the telling detail that only a canny reporter, detective or spy possesses." (Forbes) With incredible twists and heart-stopping action, this electrifying novel pulls back the curtain on Washington power and confirms Matthew Quirk as a new master of suspense.

        "The Night Agent is a whirlwind of a book, a captivating narrative that takes us inside the White House's inner sanctum and the shadowy machinations surrounding it. A powerful and taut thriller." — Mark Greaney #1 bestselling author of Mission Critical

        "This story is impossible to put out of mind.... Relevant and revealing, this is one of the best thrillers to come along in years." — Michael Connelly

        "Strap in for one hell of a ride. The Night Agent is full of twists and surprises you'll never see coming." — Ben Coes, New York Times bestselling author of Bloody Sunday

        "Matthew Quirk moves into David Baldacci and John Grisham territory with The Night Agent, a paranoid, pulse-pounding thriller that could not be more prescient. If you're wondering where the best of the next generation of suspense talent is headed, look no further." — Joseph Finder

        "Matthew Quirk is rapidly proving himself to be among our finest thriller writers, and The Night Agent is the latest undeniable evidence. Quirk writes rapid-fire, page-turning action with unusual grace and intelligence, and his latest American nightmare is guaranteed to keep readers up late." — Michael Koryta, New York Times bestselling author of How It Happened

        "Baldacci's debut [Absolute Power] kept me awake half the night. I'm still a fan... I had the same reaction when I picked up The Night Agent... Best to start this at the beginning of a weekend, as you'll be burning the midnight oil 'til you're finished." — Newark Star Ledger

        "Plenty of breathless one-more-chapter, stay-up-late suspense wrapped around a meaty and timely story ... irresistible." — Lee Child

        "Quirk's chilling and modern scenario of foreign influence reaching into the highest reaches of government will be thoroughly enjoyed by political thriller junkies." — Library Journal (starred review)

        "Quirk returns to the thriller scene with a thundering bang... Quirk's latest feels like he's been churning out political thrillers for decades, hitting on a timely plot that starts out fast and only speeds up as the story unfolds... [A] high-stakes, nail-biting political thriller." — TheRealBookSpy.com

        "Lots of good, tense plotting... A real pleasure of espionage fiction is tradecraft secrets, and Quirk doesn't disappoint." — Booklist

        "The Night Agent is a compelling high-stakes thriller, lightning fast, relentlessly suspenseful and unsettlingly realistic." — Hank Phillippi Ryan, bestselling author of Trust Me

        Praise for the earlier novels: "A thundering David-and-Goliath tale of corruption... A real page turner, with high stakes action that doesn't stop." — Booklist (starred review) on The 500

        "The Firm goes to Washington, only with a whole lot more action." — James Patterson on The 500

        "Sophisticated storytelling [and] whiplash pacing . . . Clever twists and startling surprises." — Washington Post on Cold Barrel Zero

        "The action dazzles. The characters feel authentic and fully fleshed. The threats seem all too real." — Los Angeles Review of Books on Cold Barrel Zero

        "The story is expertly stripped down, the action relentless, and the characters multilayered. A lethal game of cat and mouse." — Kirkus Reviews on Cold Barrel Zero

        "A tour de force. Dead Man Switch turns the intelligence community's 'wilderness of mirrors'...

        After all their meddling with America, the Russians have placed a mole in the White House, leaving over-his-head surveillance specialist Peter Sutherland the only man who can stop them.The son of a wrongly disgraced FBI spy chief whose alleged treachery has tainted his own career, Peter is surprised to land a job in the White House situation room. His assignment is to sit by a special phone through the wee hours, in the rare event that someone calls with an urgent coded message. After almost a year of phone-sitting, he finally gets such a call from Rose Larkin, a panicked young woman who has just escaped the bullet-riddled home of her aunt and uncle. Counterintelligence agents, they were thought by the Russians to be in possession of a hotly pursued red ledger. Rose is drawn to Peter for his caring nature. He is increasingly committed to helping her, even if that means lying to his superiors, as the people whom he thought he could trust prove untrustworthy. Can he even turn for help to President Michael Travers, his basketball buddy? Though some of the spy stuff is so standard as to be silly, Quirk keeps things moving. But the spark and surprise of his past thrillers, such as Cold Barrel Zero (2016), are largely missing. And though Quirk has never drawn characters with much depth, the paper-thinness of Peter (who disdains the Hardy Boys but frequently seems to be emulating them) and Rose (one of whose main roles is to point out when Peter is bleeding) is disappointing.Quirk goes for timeliness in imagining the Russians taking control of Washington, but while the book does resonate to a small degree with current events, reality beat fiction to such possibilities as our enemy owning a sitting U.S. president.

        At first, this reads like something by Samuel Beckett. Peter Sutherland spends his nights?284 of them so far?sitting in a little room waiting for the phone to ring. It doesn't. The phone is in the basement of the White House, and if anybody does call, Peter's supposed to tell somebody important. On this night, the phone rings. A woman's wavering voice: "He's inside. He's going to kill me." What follows hits close to home: Russia is planting moles in U.S. government offices as part of an effort to rebuild the old Soviet Union. Peter learns quickly that the people he should report to are treacherous, forcing him to go it alone, with some help from the frightened caller. Lots of good, tense plotting and wild action here, though, like a Mission: Impossible movie, it doesn't know when it's time to end. A real pleasure of espionage fiction is tradecraft secrets, and Quirk doesn't disappoint. Someone glancing at his dominant hand as he talks is being deceptive. Hydrogen peroxide, unlike bleach, will destroy DNA.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2018, American Library Association.)
