Description

NOW ON NETFLIX! Starring Gabriel Basso and Luciane Buchanan

"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

To find a Russian mole in the White House, an FBI agent must question everything. . . and trust no one.

No one is more surprised than FBI Agent Peter Sutherland when he's tapped to work in the White House Situation Room. When Peter was a boy, his father was suspected of selling secrets to the Russians—a breach that cost him his career, his reputation, and eventually his life. Now Peter's job is monitoring an emergency line for a call that has not—and might never—come.

Until tonight.

At 1:05 A.M. the phone rings. A terrified young woman named Rose tells Peter 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 Peter 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, a Three Days of the Condor for today's chaotic world. 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.

        Starred review from December 1, 2018

        This latest from Quirk ("John Hayes" and "Mike Ford" series) centers on by-the-book FBI agent Peter Sutherland, whose father's treasonous past looms over his career. Fixated on quelling any suspicion of his allegiance, Peter finally sees an opportunity for promotion as a night agent in the White House Situation Room. There he receives a frantic phone call from a woman named Rose Larkin. Someone has broken into her aunt and uncle's home and murdered them. Before their deaths, they gave Rose a phone number to the night agent and a message: ."..OSPREY was right. It's happening in six days, and they have the red ledger." Thus Peter and Rose have less than a week to solve the mystery because all who know about the ledger and what's about to happen are being eliminated. VERDICT Quirk's chilling and modern scenario of foreign influence reaching into the highest reaches of government will be thoroughly enjoyed by political thriller junkies. [See Prepub Alert, 7/2/18.]--Susan Moritz, Silver Spring, MD

        October 15, 2018
        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.)
