This is my first novel. When it debuted in September 2001, right on the heels of 9/11, it was ranked as one of the best thriller debuts by Publisher's Weekly and became a Booksense Pick as Best Thriller and Suspense. It was one of the first thrillers to feature the extremely secretive Special Activities Division of the CIA, the single most elite unit in the US Special Operations arsenal.
What readers loved about it then, and now, as it still sells 18 years later, was first of all the realism in tactics, tradecraft and fighting. This is old hat now with most competent thriller writers spending time getting every exacting detail about those things right. 18 years ago that was not common. We readers were used to books with silenced revolvers, Glocks with safety catches, and tradecraft using a woman's compact mirror (remember those?) to peek around corners with. Fellow authors like Barry Eisler, David Morrell, Gayle Lynds, Grant Blackwood, Harley Jane Kozak and many others have been ...
