Baker & Taylor
With the intelligence community on edge due to indicators of an unspecified but large-scale attack on the U.S., Kirk McGarvey is called out of retirement to help uncover a possible link between the murder of CIA agent Louis Updegraf and the Chinese, with the only clue lying in the shttered mind of enigmatic Iranian belly dancer Shahrzad Shadmand. 30,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
The CIA is on edge. All signs indicate that something is coming at the United States. Perhaps another 9/11, maybe bigger.
The body of CIA agent Louis Updegraf ends up on the steps of the US Embassy in Mexico. His last operation was to tap into the communications of the Chinese Embassy, but there is no record of why. He appeared to be freelancing and the Agency must scramble to get a clue as to what he was after.

Kirk McGarvey, serving as a visiting professor at the University of Florida, is once again longing for the action of the field. So when his old friend Otto Rencke asks him to help figure out the connection between China and the murdered agent, it takes almost no effort to get McGarvey up and running.

The only informant they can find is an enigmatic Iranian belly dancer--the dark and lovely Shahrzad Shadmand. But her story changes with the wind, and her knowledge of McGarvey's past is uncanny. Kirk McGarvey must unravel her shattered mind to get to something that might resemble the truth.

The CIA is on edge. All surveillance chatter indicates that something is coming at the United States: perhaps another 9/11, maybe something even more catastrophic. The Agency discovers only bits and pieces of information - nothing concrete, such as a date or a location. Then the body of CIA agent Louis Updegraf turns up in Mexico, victim of an apparent assassination. The dead man had tapped into the communications of the Chinese embassy, but no one can figure out why. Kirk McGarvey is serving as a visiting professor at the University of Florida when an old friend at the Agency asks him to help figure out the connection between China land the murdered agent. Feeling the pull of action, McGarvey is soon up and running.
Multinational players are coming together south of the U.S. border. The only way into their shadowy world is through a mysterious Iranian dancer, Shahrzad Shadmand.
Part femme fatale, part unfortunate victim of circumstance, the time she spent with a cruel and hedonistic Chinese general could hold the answers McGarvey needs. But is she leading him toward the truth or are her stories nothing more than a cunning misdirection? Caught In a kill-or-be-killed spy game, he must find out whom he can trust and who is manipulating events from behind the scenes.
