Aria & Aries, Head of Zeus -- an Aries Book
From the author of The Night Agent, now a worldwide hit Netflix series. With the President at risk from a threat closer than anyone could have imagined, only one operative can save him…
Assume the worst. Code Black.
The White House has been breached. President Kline has left for a secret bunker with only his most trusted agents and officials: those dedicated to keeping the US government intact at all costs.
Erik Hill has given his life to the Secret Service, but years of dealing with Washington sleaze has replaced his enthusiasm with disillusionment. With the US government under attack, though, and no one better equipped to face down the threat, Erik can’t ignore his calling.
But he has never dealt with a threat like this. The president may have headed to safety… but what if the danger was there with him all along? With killers ready to strike inside the bunker, it will take everything Erik has to save his leader, his country - and himself.

Thank you to NetGalley, the publisher and author for this eARC.
Wow, this is a cleverly woven and complex read with a believable plot line. When the White House comes under attack and his presidency threatened, President Kline and a number of trusted agents and aides go to Raven Rock, a top secret facility believing they will be safe there. Are they though? I found this to be a good, fast paced read which is well written and flows easily. The story takes place over a short period that makes for a thrilling read with lots of action, suspense and mystery. I was drawn into the story quickly and Matthew Quirk held my attention and interest to the last page. I really liked Hill and Cody the two main agents and was rooting for them throughout. I felt the story was a bit long and descriptive at times though and because of this I found myself skimming pages. It is still a good read, I just think it could have been shorter without losing anything from the plot line. If you like political thrillers I think you'd enjoy this and I'd recommend it.
4 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐
‘Inside Threat’ by Matthew Quirk was a tense thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. Someone is out to get the President – or are they? Trapped in an underground bunker, a disgraced CIA agent needs to isolate the danger lurking in the shadows but who can he trust? This was a fast and furious action-packed read, which kept me guessing until the end.
