The Night Agent : A Novel

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

At first, this reads like something by Samuel Beckett. Peter Sutherland spends his nights 284 of them so far sitting in a little room waiting for the phone to ring. It doesn't. The phone is in the basement of the White House, and if anybody does call, Peter's supposed to tell somebody important. On this night, the phone rings. A woman's wavering voice: "He's inside. He's going to kill me." What follows hits close to home: Russia is planting moles in U.S. government offices as part of an effort to rebuild the old Soviet Union. Peter learns quickly that the people he should report to are treacherous, forcing him to go it alone, with some help from the frightened caller. Lots of good, tense plotting and wild action here, though, like a Mission: Impossible movie, it doesn't know when it's time to end. A real pleasure of espionage fiction is tradecraft secrets, and Quirk doesn't disappoint. Someone glancing at his dominant hand as he talks is being deceptive. Hydrogen peroxide, unlike bleach, will destroy DNA.--Don Crinklaw Copyright 2018 Booklist

The Night Agent : A Novel

Publishers Weekly


(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

Idealistic FBI agent Peter Sutherland, the hero of this uneven political thriller from bestseller Quirk (The 500), works the night shift in the White House situation room, standing by for an emergency call "that might never come." Finally, he gets one from Rose Larkin, whose uncle and aunt, American counterintelligence agents Henry and Paulette Campbell, have instructed her to make a "night action" call and flee their house in a residential Washington, D.C., neighborhood. The Campbells possess a red ledger containing evidence of meetings between a high-placed U.S. government official and Russian intelligence officers, and a Russian operative is prepared to kill for it. Initially an innocent pawn in a game of high-stakes intrigue, Rose soon becomes a target, and Peter has found himself a mission. He's a sympathetic figure with something to prove (his FBI counterintelligence agent father was accused of being a traitor), and Quirk keeps the action moving at a cinematic clip. But Peter is too earnest by half, and those expecting nuance will be disappointed. Still, readers looking for a highly contemporary take on relations between the U.S. and Russia will be rewarded.

Copyright (c) Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.

After all their meddling with America, the Russians have placed a mole in the White House, leaving over-his-head surveillance specialist Peter Sutherland the only man who can stop them.The son of a wrongly disgraced FBI spy chief whose alleged treachery has tainted his own career, Peter is surprised to land a job in the White House situation room. His assignment is to sit by a special phone through the wee hours, in the rare event that someone calls with an urgent coded message. After almost a year of phone-sitting, he finally gets such a call from Rose Larkin, a panicked young woman who has just escaped the bullet-riddled home of her aunt and uncle. Counterintelligence agents, they were thought by the Russians to be in possession of a hotly pursued red ledger. Rose is drawn to Peter for his caring nature. He is increasingly committed to helping her, even if that means lying to his superiors, as the people whom he thought he could trust prove untrustworthy. Can he even turn for help to President Michael Travers, his basketball buddy? Though some of the spy stuff is so standard as to be silly, Quirk keeps things moving. But the spark and surprise of his past thrillers, such as Cold Barrel Zero (2016), are largely missing. And though Quirk has never drawn characters with much depth, the paper-thinness of Peter (who disdains the Hardy Boys but frequently seems to be emulating them) and Rose (one of whose main roles is to point out when Peter is bleeding) is disappointing.Quirk goes for timeliness in imagining the Russians taking control of Washington, but while the book does resonate to a small degree with current events, reality beat fiction to such possibilities as our enemy owning a sitting U.S. president.
