Action-packed CIA spy thriller, part family dramedy, and full of action, quirky comedy, and all too human characters.
Gib Alexander is a divorced suburban dad who also happens to be a deadly efficient, off the books, CIA contractor. Balancing the demands of his perilous profession and his resentful ex-wife and troubled son is a dangerous juggling act. His safety and the safety of his family depend on his fanatical precautions to keep his two lives separate. When a young computer coder threatens a top secret NSA project that could tilt the balance in the escalating international cyberwars, Gib is hired to conduct a ghost rendition, spiriting the coder away to a black site in Egypt for extreme interrogation that is outlawed in the United States. But what appears at first to be a straight forward contract turns into a morally ambiguous conflict that sets off a CIA power struggle. Caught in the middle, Gib finds his two lives set on a collision course that will ultimately threaten them both.
“Nonstop action and nonstop plot twists in GHOST RENDITON keep the pages swiftly turning right in sync with the mind-bending mystery that this noir novel’s hero must navigate at breakneck speed.”
—Lewis Gould, Emmy and Peabody Award-Winning Producer of Law & Order
“This is more than a typical spy novel. It is full of gripping plot twists, but the family drama and the quirky comedy set it apart. This is a great story well told.”
—Ross Greenburg, Executive Producer of Miracle, Emmy and Peabody Award-Winning Producer, and Former President of HBO Sports
“If you feel the need for a great read, this is a spy vs. spy techno thriller that’s fast and furious, a nonstop adrenaline rush. I loved the characters and the wild twists I never saw coming.”
—Sheldon Woodbury, Author of The World on Fire and Cool Million
