Warning Light

David Ricciardi. Berkley, $27 (336p) ISBN 978-0-399-58573-9
Zac Miller, the 28-year-old hero of Ricciardi’s gripping first novel and series launch, is on his way to Singapore when one of the engines of the passenger plane he is on fails over Iran. The plane flies into prohibited airspace and lands at an airport in the small city of Sirjan. The Iranians are extremely upset because a secret nuclear facility is just minutes from Sirjan and no Westerners should be anywhere near it. Zac, in tourist fashion, snaps several pictures on the way into the terminal, where he’s detained by security personnel. Nominally a technology consultant, Zac is really a CIA strategic weapons analyst, a substitute for the trained field agent who was supposed to be on the airliner. After several bouts of torture, Zac escapes and begins a run across land and sea, displaying plenty of resourcefulness during his dangerous journey. He eventually comes to realize that he’s more suited to a career in the field than behind a desk. Thriller fans will look forward to his further adventures. Agent: Rick Richter, Aevitas Creative Management. (Apr.)
