From ex-CIA agent turned bestselling writer comes FAULT LINE, Barry Eisler’s first stand-alone thriller. A pulse-pounding and intelligent thriller that is one part Lee Child, one part Vince Flynn, and Barry Eisler all the way through. If you weren’t familiar with Barry’s novels before, you will be soon.
Here are the facts:
The hero: Ben Treven - a military liaison element, an elite undercover soldier paid to “find, fix, and finish” high-value targets in the United States global war on terror.
The situation: Silicon Valley: the eccentric inventor of a new encryption application is murdered. Istanbul: a cynical undercover operative receives a frantic call from his estranged brother, a patent lawyer who believes he’ll be the next victim. And in California’s nerve center of money and technology, old family hurts sting anew as two brothers who share nothing but blood and bitterness wage a desperate battle against a faceless enemy.
The opening line: “The last thing Richard Hilzoy thought before the bullet entered his brain was, ‘Things are really looking up.’”
What others have said: “Thriller fans already know that Barry Eisler is one of the brightest stars out there. But now, with Fault Line, I predict a whole lot more readers are going to discover how terrific he is.”
