A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.
A particularly imaginative espionage thriller for the modern times and a curious sequel over four decades later to Grady's original SIX DAYS OF THE CONDOR in which the eponymous agent has now become a heavily medicated hostage to the powers that be, but is he really as hopeless as he appears or is he the one manipulating the events? And why is he being followed? Faye Dozier, the agent charged with keeping tabs on him is soon drawn into his orbit and, together, they are forced to confront and decipher the layers of deception and trust entangling the spy establishment when her partner is killed. A fever dream of a thriller which lays bare the dirty world of Washington and the return of an iconic character, but not as you expected him if you still imagined the Condor as Robert Redford. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
Look in the mirror. You’re nobody. You know pursuing the truth will get you killed. But you refuse to just fade away.
You’ve been designated an enemy of the largest secret national security apparatus in America’s history. All assassins’ guns are aimed at you. And you run for your life, branded with the code name you made iconic: Condor.
Last Days of the Condor is a breakneck, ticking-clock saga of America on the edge of a startling spy world revolution. Set in the savage streets and Kafkaesque corridors of Washington DC, Last Days of the Condor is shot through with sex and suspense, secret agent tradecraft and full-speed action.
