The God’s Eye View

Barry Eisler. Amazon/Thomas & Mercer, $24.95 (448p) ISBN 978-1-5039-4961-4
In this intricately plotted thriller from bestseller Eisler (Graveyard of Memories), NSA analyst Evelyn Gallagher warns Theodore Anders, the NSA director, that her worldwide spy system has tagged a senior NSA official meeting in Istanbul with an investigative reporter—an indicator that a major security breach may be happening. But she unwisely expresses her suspicion to the Anders that the NSA seems to be proactive in the permanent removal of such persons, making herself a threat to his highly illegal God’s Eye program. Gallagher, a single mother supporting her deaf young son, Dash, now becomes the target of the director’s wet-work specialists, the sadistic Thomas Delgado and Marvin Manus, a deaf brute with a deadly skill set. But Manus finds himself bonding with Dash and then becomes attracted to Gallagher. When the two fall into a romantic entanglement, all hell breaks loose. Eisler’s expert knowledge of spycraft and hand-to-hand combat combine with his ultra-deep distrust of government intelligence to propel this suspenseful yarn into the front ranks of paranoid thrillers. Agent: Laura Rennert, Andrea Brown Literary Agency. (Feb.)
