Overview

"My spy classmate, Andy Anderson, has written a delicious follow-on to
Greene's "Our Man in Havana" in his novel Sudden Recall. It is at the same time funny, fast-paced, current and full of wisdom. It may provoke a few flashes of indignation in Langley and on the Hill but John Hunt's outbursts are long overdue."

-Fred Hitz, Professor of Law, University of Virginia, former Inspector
General of the CIA and author of "The Great Game: The Myth and Reality of
Espionage."

"Andy Anderson was John Carol Kingsberry Hunt-one of the dangerously ambitious bad-boy field case-officers who bedded their mistresses in safe-houses and recruited high risk, dangerous spies without prior CIA headquarter's approval.We used to say his operational reporting reads like fiction-today it is the other way around."

-Richard W. Carlson, US Ambassador (ret.)
Former Director of the Voice of America

"Fact and fiction blur in this hall-of-mirrors espionage novel by CIA spy master Andy Anderson, who lays bare the awful truth about what went wrong-and is still going wrong-in America's war on terror. Sudden
Recall
is the inside scoop."

-Rick Carroll, author of IZ Voice of The People, and former daily journalist with the San Francisco Chronicle

    A reviewer

    Andy Anderson¿s Sudden Recall gives one the feeling of being part of a covert mission set in politically and financially unstable, post 9/11 Argentina where anything can and does happen. Especially since the exercise is to track down an Islamic terrorist group with an unknown target in Buenos Aires and the capability to set off a dirty bomb that could decommission the city and region for decades. The mission¿s leader is John Carol Kingsberry Hunt, a retired and somewhat maverick CIA case officer, called back to duty for his unique skills, most especially, expediency and the ability to think fast in stressful situations. But, as with all black-ops, he is also expendable. Failure though means the unthinkable and the fact that his back-up consists of three young untried military recruits plus a nymphomaniac former agent make the operation even more daunting. Anderson¿s perils-of-pauline novel is articulate, well written and intelligent. He has further offered astute observations on the Western-Islamic dilemma and paradoxical role of the Islamic woman, caught between a retrogressive fundamentalist movement and the modern world. And, his own experiences with the CIA afford the reader with background information on the shadowy agency and a better idea of spy-craft. All this plus realistic characters and a good plot make the book a fine read plus leave the reader feeling for once he¿s achieved the right to ¿need to know.¿
