9780062219657: Scorpion Deception (Scorpion Novels)

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.

Review:

“Excellent . . . [Kaplan’s] style matches the best of Ludlum, and then surpasses it.” ( Suspense Magazine)

“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.” (Katherine Neville, author of The Eight and The FireKatherine Neville, author of The Eight and The FireKatherine Neville, author of The Eight and The Fire)

“In a word, terrific….The pace is blistering, the atmosphere menacing and decadent, and author Andrew Kaplan is in marvelously smashing form.” ( New York Daily News)

“Kept me up well into the late show hours… [paced] like a ride on the Magic Mountain roller coaster . . . Hollywood please copy.” ( Los Angeles Times)

“Brimming with action.” ( Washington Post)

“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.” (Examiner.com on Scorpion Deception)

From the Back Cover:

In Switzerland, a brutally efficient hit squad storms the U.S. embassy, stealing classified files and leaving no witnesses alive. Under intense political pressure to find those behind the attack—with Congressional leaders demanding military action—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 one of the stolen lists.

What Scorpion uncovers sends the CIA scrambling: evidence linking the attack to an unknown Iranian power broker known as "the Gardener." Scorpion follows the trail to Zurich and Barcelona, where he meets his match in Scale, an agent as lethal as the viper that is his namesake. A deadly dance of deception ensues, bringing Scorpion into Tehran's inner circle, but not even the political elite know who the Gardener is—or what his next move might be.
