Scorpion Deception (Scorpion Novels #4) (Paperback)
Ex-CIA and now freelance agent Scorpion hunts a faceless enemy—a mysterious Iranian known only as “the Gardener”—in Andrew Kaplan's Scorpion Deception, the electrifying third installment of the espionage series that Suspense magazine says “matches the best of Ludlum, and then surpasses it.”
Files containing highly classified information on CIA assets have been stolen from the U.S. embassy in Switzerland by a well-armed and well-trained hit squad.
Under intense political pressure to find those who orchestrated the attack, the CIA turns to the deadliest agent they know: Scorpion. But Scorpion is unwilling to get involved...until he learns his name is at the top of the stolen list.
Scorpion, a strong, intelligent, and lethal action hero, must travel to Iran to hunt down “the Gardener” before an all-out war erupts in this sensational spy thriller.
“Kaplan has written one of the smartest, swiftest and most compelling spy novels I’ve read in years.”
“Excellent . . . [Kaplan’s] style matches the best of Ludlum, and then surpasses it.”
“Delivers more heart-thumping twists and turns, beliefs and betrayals, than The Day of the Jackal and The Spy Who Came in from the Cold rolled into one.”
“In a word, terrific….The pace is blistering, the atmosphere menacing and decadent, and author Andrew Kaplan is in marvelously smashing form.”
“Kept me up well into the late show hours… [paced] like a ride on the Magic Mountain roller coaster . . . Hollywood please copy.”
“Brimming with action.”
“If are looking for a no-holds-barred, spy romp that is fast-paced and chocked full of intelligence gathering and espionage, then Scorpion Deception is the novel for you.”
