A breakneck-paced international espionage thriller in the Robert Ludlum and Daniel Silva vein, Andrew Kaplan's phenomenal Scorpion Betrayal is a relentlessly exciting page-turner that will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Featuring one of the most intriguing protagonists in spy fiction—an ex-CIA agent code-named Scorpion—on a breathtaking chase across the capitals of Europe in pursuit of a frighteningly elusive terrorist known as "the Palestinian," this is a novel that Alex Berenson, Ted Bell, Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, and Barry Eisler fans are going to love.

And don't miss Andrew's new novel, Homeland: Carrie's Run, available September 3rd, the official prequel novel to the hit Showtime series, Homeland, featuring CIA Intelligence Officer Carrie Mathison on a mission in the Middle East prior to Season 1. This riveting, original thriller reveals the compelling untold backstories of the series' main characters and takes fans deeper into the life and mind of the brilliant female spy.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this exciting follow-up to 1985’s Scorpion, Kaplan pits the deadly CIA agent known as Scorpion against the terrorist known as the Palestinian. Scorpion travels the world in an effort to catch his man and unravel the mystery of the massive terrorist incident he knows the Palestinian is orchestrating. The manhunt is overseen by the shadowy CIA National Clandestine Service deputy director Bob Harris, whom Scorpion knows to be as much his enemy as his friend. Despite being given only pieces of the information he needs, Scorpion takes the job anyway, partly because his employers are paying him a ton of money to be an independent agent, and mostly because he’s a true patriot. The intended attack, which includes the use of weaponized septicemic plague, could endanger millions of lives. The nonstop action will keep readers racing through the pages and hoping that Kaplan will put Scorpion back into action as soon as possible. Agent: Dominick Abel, Dominick Abel Literary Agency.
