Suspense/Thriller Author Spotlight

Each week we explore in depth the work of suspense/thriller authors. While many of you know authors like John Grisham, James Patterson and David Baldacci, the goal is to take readers behind the work of authors whose work you may be less familiar with. We'll explore their new books --- and their past ones, known in the industry as the backlist. The goal is that you, like us, will meet new authors and read books that you previously may have missed.

When an obscure charity recruits Josh Hagarty to manage their activities in a war-torn region of Africa, he is eager to sign on and atone for a past he regrets.

Barry Eisler, author of Fault Line
