    “The Right Hand” is the code name for Austin Clay, a special type of CIA agent. Clay is black ops (anything the CIA will not acknowledge). This time his assignment is to find and retrieve CIA agent Blake Nelson from Russia. The CIA is uncertain whether Nelson has turned sides or is a captive. They want him back dead or alive. Clay discovers that Marika Csontos is involved and a target for elimination. Clay has never had time for romance and yet he finds himself strangely drawn to Marika.

    Derek Haas has successfully set the base for a new series. Haas has created a strong leading character in Austin Clay. Clay’s flaws are explained by his childhood. He was held captive on his uncle’s boat for years after he was orphaned. After eight years of abuse he finally managed to physically escape his uncle but the mental and emotional scares are still there. CIA Agent Clay is bigger than life and at times seems indestructible. He is a man ready for action, crafty and intelligent. He reminds me of James Bond. “The Right Hand” is a short book with only 272 pages. The author makes the best use of each page keeping the plot moving along swiftly. The plot is complex, intense, thrilling and well done. The plot would play well on the big screen. This is a book fans of spy novels will not want to miss. I’ll be watching for more books by Derek Haas.
