Description - Black by Christopher Whitcomb
Handle: A major new thriller, set in the shadowy world of "black ops, " written by the former FBI agent who knows every dark detail--first hand. Description: Most Americans have never heard of black operations because they don't officially exist--no Appropriations bills, no yearly audits or Congressional oversight. The CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency, and National Reconnaissance Office won't discuss them at any level. Special Agent Jeremy Waller is thrilled to earn a spot in law enforcement's most elite squad, the FBI's Hostage Rescue Team--until his assignments begin to contradict his sense of what's right and wrong, what's legal and what's not. Jordan Mitchell is a telecommunications tycoon in control of one of the largest personal fortunes in the world--and the keeper of some very dangerous secrets. Senator Elizabeth McGean could be the next president of the United States, but someone seems willing to do anything--including framing her for the murder of a National Security Council staffer--to ensure she never sees the White house. Sirad Malneaux is beautiful and brilliant and a stone cold killer. Ari Weiss is a Wall Street hotshot who answers to no one--except Israeli intelligence. Now, all five are about to slip into a world few know about, where there are no rules except that everything must be kept secret and not everyone can survive. And in the end, FBI agent Waller will find that sometimes the only way out of the darkness is to head even deeper into the black. Written with a David Baldacci-like pace and the insider expertise that only Christopher Whitcomb can bring to the table, Black is the most exciting debut thriller in years.
