Overview

The heart-pounding next installment in David Hagberg's "New York Times "bestselling Kirk McGarvey series.

Pakistan is torn apart by riots in the streets. The CIA sends Pakistan expert David Haaris to meet with leaders of the military intelligence apparatus which all but controls the country, to try to head off what appears to be the disintegration of the government.

But Haaris has other ideas. After disguising himself, he beheads the president in front of a mob of ten thousand people and declares himself the new Messiah. He says he will bring peace and stability to the country by allying with the Taliban.

At that moment, miles to the south on the border with Afghanistan, one of four stolen nuclear weapons is detonated.

Pakistan has become the most dangerous nation in the world. Legendary former director of the CIA Kirk McGarvey is given a mission--assassinate the Messiah, code name: The Fourth Horseman.

In Hagbergs implausible 18th thriller featuring former CIA director Kirk McGarvey (after 2015s Retribution), David Haaris, the hate-filled head of the CIAs Pakistan desk, who was mocked as a schoolboy in England as a rag head, plans to strike a blow against the West that would be worse than a thousand 9/11s. Haaris begins by taking advantage of a private audience with an old friend, Farid Barazani, the openly pro-Western new president of Pakistan, to shoot him dead. Then, disguised, Haaris displays Barazanis severed head to the crowds gathered near the presidential palace, who call him Messiah, the one who will redeem his country. Alarmed at the risk of loose Pakistani nukes, U.S. president Charlene Miller asks McGarvey to assassinate the man now known as the Messiah. Haaris comes under suspicion remarkably quickly, given his position of trust, and he does a number of things that only validate those concerns about his loyalties. The contrivance at the end will elicit groans and undercuts the intended portrayal of the lead as a skilled operative. (Feb.)
