“[A] gripping debut and series launch . . . Ouellette, a former CIA analyst, brings plenty of authenticity to this fast-paced spy thriller. Readers will look forward to Maggie’s further adventures.” —Publishers Weekly

She has walked the halls of the House Intelligence Committee and the CIA and knows those institutions as very few novelists do.” —Dr. Mark M. Lowenthal, Former CIA Assistant Director for Analysis; Former Staff Director, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
“[A] page-turner of a spy story that could have come right from today’s newspaper . . . I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.” —Tim Suddeth, Killer Nashville
