Agents of Treachery by Otto Penzler


Agents of Treachery by Otto Penzler

Spooks and spies, jihadis and mercenaries, black-ops squads and nosy neighbors. Everyone has something to hide in this unique collection of brand-new stories from spy fiction's ultimate crack team. World number one bestseller Lee Child takes a sly look at the formation of a special forces cell in 'Section 7(A)', Joseph Finder spies on the locals in 'Neighbors', ex-MI5 boss Stella Rimington finds a gun fanatic playing his last game of golf in 'Hedged In', and Rambo's father David Morrell pulls nails in his chilling tale 'The Interrogator'. In these and other heart-pounding stories, legendary editor Otto Penzler has united fourteen world-class writers in one objective: Create an instant classic for thrill addicts everywhere. This stellar collection signals mission accomplished.
