Description


In a world of lies, one man wants the truth.

Journalist Philip Mangan is trying to stay out of trouble in East Africa, his reputation and his life in tatters. But when he is caught in a terrorist attack in East Africa and a shadowy Chinese figure approaches him in the dead of night with information on the origins of the attack, Mangan is suddenly back in the eye of the storm.

Meanwhile, thousands of miles away on a humid Hong Kong night, a key British Intelligence source is murdered minutes after meeting spy Trish Patterson. From Washington, D.C. to the hallowed halls of Oxford University and dusty African streets, a sinister power is stirring, one which will use Mangan and Patterson as pawns -- if they survive.

Deeply steeped in tension and paranoia, Adam Brookes's second novel is a remarkable, groundbreaking spy thriller.

Praise For…


"A smarter or more exciting mystery likely won't be released this year."—Kirkus (starred review) on Spy Games

"Brookes shows that his impressive debut was no fluke, and readers will look forward to Mangan's next adventure."—Publishers Weekly on Spy Games

"[Adam Brookes] does an excellent job of keeping the action moving and the tension high, making Spy Games a difficult book to put down.... Brookes has separated himself from the pack: I've read a lot of very good China books by excellent journalists, but I've never before stayed up far too late on a work night to finish one, unwilling to go to sleep until I knew how it ended."—Los Angeles Review of Books on Spy Games

"A rich, can't-put-it-down thriller... terrific."—Joseph Kanon on Spy Games

"The must-read thriller of the year."—NPR Books on Night Heron

"Outstanding."—Washington Post on Night Heron

"Pulsing with power and danger."—New York Times on Night Heron
