Product description


"[Adam Brookes] does an excellent job of keeping the action moving and the tension high, making Spy Games a difficult book to put down.... Brookes has separated himself from the pack: I've read a lot of very good China books by excellent journalists, but I've never before stayed up far too late on a work night to finish one, unwilling to go to sleep until I knew how it ended."--Los Angeles Review of Books on Spy Games

"A rich, can't-put-it-down thriller... terrific."--Joseph Kanon on Spy Games

"A smarter or more exciting mystery likely won't be released this year."--Kirkus (starred review) on Spy Games

"Brookes shows that his impressive debut was no fluke, and readers will look forward to Mangan's next adventure."--Publishers Weekly on Spy Games

"Outstanding."--Washington Post on Night Heron

"Pulsing with power and danger."--New York Times on Night Heron

"The must-read thriller of the year."--NPR Books on Night Heron

The Spy's Daughter is his third novel. He lives with his family in Takoma Park, Maryland.
