"A thinking man's thriller... A real adrenaline blast... I loved it!" ROBERT REDFORD, Spy Game

Gladys: Feeling a little paranoid on our last day?

Nathan Muir: When did Noah build the ark, Gladys? Before the rain, before the rain.

Love or country? To save one you must sacrifice the other...

The epic climax to the Aiken Trilogy rooted in the Robert Redford/Brad Pitt film Spy Game, it's the question faced by Nathan Muir protégé Russell Aiken when he defects to Cuba.

Haunted by the ghosts of past, present, and future spies, Aiken is trapped in a lethal battle with Havana intelligence officers desperate to discover the CIA's top spy hidden inside Fidel Castro's government.

Aiken must betray Nathan Muir and Tom Bishop-exposing CIA operations that link Cuba, China, and Venezuela in a startling conspiracy-in order to rescue the woman he loves...all in a single night without leaving the hotel room of his interrogation.

"The moral ambiguities of John le Carré, the technical precision of Tom Clancy, and the violent impact of Robert Ludlum." The US Review of Books

Bursting with Aiken's wit and erstwhile confusion, Aiken in Check is a love letter confession, wrapped in the haunting of three spies' dangerous past, on a Christmas Eve that by dawn will see him lose everything or become the grandmaster of the Spy Game.

"It's policy versus heart... Will challenge you in ways you haven't been challenged before." TONY SCOTT director of Spy Game

Buy Now and return to the world of Nathan Muir and Tom Bishop, but be warned: in Spy Game, "It's not how you play the game... It's how the game plays you."

About the Author

In 1989, Michael Frost Beckner's script for Sniper launched a military-thriller franchise now in production on its eighth sequel. Three consecutive record-breaking spec script sales and three films later, Tony Scott directed Beckner's original screenplay Spy Game. An international blockbuster that paired Robert Redford and Brad Pitt as CIA partners and rivals, it is now a classic in the espionage genre. Branching into television with his CIA-based drama The Agency for CBS, Beckner's pilot predicted Osama bin Laden's terror attack and the War on Terror four months before 9/11. In that series alone, Beckner would go on to predictively dramatize three more international terror events. Having penned more than twenty-five pilots for network and cable television, miniseries and docudramas, and dozens of original motion picture screenplays, adaptations, and rewrites, he is a Hollywood institution. As a commentator on American espionage, Beckner has appeared on CNN, Fox News, CBS News, TF1 in France, and as a featured guest of Bill Maher on HBO. Now, in conjunction with the twentieth anniversary of Spy Game, Beckner returns to the world of Nathan Muir and Tom Bishop with the release of his trilogy of Spy Game novels: Muir's Gambit, Bishop's Endgame, and Aiken in Check.
