" Pakistan is torn apart by street riots, and Islamist terror groups are on the verge of toppling its shaky secular government. In the midst of the chaos, the CIA sends Pakistan expert David Haaris to meet with leaders of the military-intelligence apparatus that all but controls the country. Haaris is tasked with preventing the government's impending disintegration. " But David Haaris has other ideas. An Islamist double agent working for Pakistani terrorists, he has been undermining the Islamabad regime for decades. Through an act of spectacular violence, Haaris attempts to forge an alliance among some of the region's most horrendous terror groups. His goal is to bring them to power in Pakistan. If he succeeds, the terrorists will possess enough nuclear weapons to destroy all the developed world's capital cities. " Miles to the south, on the border with Afghanistan, a nuclear weapon is detonated. For the nations of earth, it is the warning shot over the bow, an explosion heard round the world. Only one man can stop Haaris's plan - legendary CIA assassin Kirk McGarvey..." .

Presidential Agent

By Sinclair, Upton

New York: Viking. Very Good in Good dust jacket. 1944. First Edition. Hardcover. Orange cloth with silver lettering, 655 pp. Spine slightly cocked, some sunning, minor edge wear and rubbing. Jacket in new Brodart, some sunning, some edge wear and chipping especially along spine, with 1" chip at top of spine. Overall a nice copy. ; Owner's name on front end paper, dated June 24, 1944.; Lanny Budd; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall; 655 pages; "In 1937 and 1938 the war clouds were gathering that soon would darken the whole world. The most portentous plans in modern history were brewing in the Nazi cauldron. The end of Austria, of Poland, of Czechoslovakia was near - the end of the world as it was. Plots and counterplots were being hatched in secret. It was vitally important that these plans be ferreted out in advance and reported to the head of our own government. "Lanny Budd's lifelong intimacy with the 'headliners' of our time fitted him for a role of critical importance in this period of ominous watchfulness, and Sinclair has had the exciting idea of casting him as a fictional special agent for the President. He was on the spot, ostensibly in his role of art agent, wherever world-shaking events were about to happen. Through his eyes and ears the reader hears Hitler raving in his retreat at Berchtesgaden, see Goring strut and brag, sits in salons in France where the Cagoulard conspiracy is being plotted, listens to polite chat of appeasement in London drawing rooms, suffers agonies of suspense as Lanny tries to rescue his wife, Trudi, from the hands of her Nazi captors. It is spell-binding narrative in which the detail are fictitious but the broad pattern of history is true. " .
