Vin, a name of convenience for the agent known as Condor, has been released from psychiatric care and is back to work. The only problem is that his work now entails the mundane job of sorting through books meant for the incinerator instead of the high-adrenaline rush of being a covert spy for the CIA. Struggling to separate hallucinations from reality, Condor attempts to immerse himself in the task at hand, but his acute sense of danger soon overwhelms him. While wandering the labyrinth of the Library of Congress's subterranean tunnels, he encounters a damsel in distress. Someone is following her, and Condor can't resist the lure of covert ops - or placing his own life in jeopardy.

Author: James Grady Format: eBook Release Date: 01/06/2014

In this classic thriller, presented with a new introduction by the author, a down-and-out ex-CIA operative runs from his former masters and propels us like a bullet through the secret spy history of America. Jud is not too drunk to recognize the assassin. How the hit man found him in this hard-bitten roadhouse, Jud isn't sure, but he's not going to go down without a fight. His hands shaking too much for close combat, Jud perches himself on the bar's roof and drops on the assassin when he steps into the darkness. Though Jud only meant to stun, the man is dead. Jud doesn't care. Quitting the CIA has not proven as easy as he hoped. Once one of the Agency's top killers, Jud's skills have been dulled by civilian life, and his only chance is to go into hiding. Before he disappears off the grid, he makes a call to Nick Kelley, a D.C. journalist who is one of the only men Jud can trust. Between the two of them, they have a shot atstopping the rot at the heart of the CIA. That is, if the rot doesn't kill them first.

He joins the Air Force and comes back to Shelby when he's on leave. Steve and Thel stay behind, making lives in the tough heartland town in Montana. Though farther apart, they remain a group -- and will stay that way, whether they live or die.
