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

Tom Bishop: "You don't just trade these people like they're baseball cards! It's not a game!"

Nathan Muir: "That's exactly what it is and it's no kid's game either. This is a whole other game. And it's serious. And it's dangerous. And it's not one you want to lose."

It's 48 hours before the events of the movie classic Spy Game and Nathan Muir is about to see his world implode...

Who'd want to assassinate Charlie March? The original Cold War hero. Mentor, brother, confessor-in-chief to Nathan Muir, he's the spy who waltzed in from the cold and wrote a bestseller in the Florida sunshine.

But when a bomb on his yacht puts Charlie March on ice, and his dying words implicate Muir, the CIA dispatches hard-luck Agency lawyer Russell Aiken to force Muir's confession and bury forty years of dirty secrets. By legal means...or otherwise.

About the Author

In 1989, Michael Frost Beckner's script for Sniper launched a military-thriller franchise now in production on its ninth 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.
