Condor in the Stacks: A Bibliomystery by James Grady
A thrilling new novella from the bestselling author of Six Days of the Condor
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.
“Grady is a master of intrigue.” —James Grisham
“Reading the novel, I sometimes thought of Orwell’s novel ‘1984,’ sometimes of the Dylan song ‘Desolation Row.’ . . . A novel that’s supremely entertaining and a sad, important look at the United States today.” —The Washington Post on Last Days of the Condor
“Lean, edgy, and sassy . . . Grady is a master of the CIA genre.” —Kai Bird, author of The Good Spy: The Life and Death of Robert Ames
