A novel by

 
 
The head of Egypt's State Internal Security is brutally murdered in a Cairo cafe, his assailant a faceless killer known only as "the Palestinian". It is the opening move in a chilling game of terror that has caught the international intelligence community completely off guard, and the CIA turns to the one man they believe can get to the twisted roots of a looming nightmare shrouded in mystery: a former company operative code named Scorpion.

A breakneck-paced international espionage thriller in the Robert Ludlum and Daniel Silva vein, Andrew Kaplan's phenomenal Scorpion Betrayal is a relentlessly exciting pause-resister that will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Featuring one of the most intriguing protagonists in spy fiction--an ex-CIA agent code named Scorpion--on a breathtaking chase across the capitals of Europe in pursuit of a frighteningly elusive terrorist, this is the international best seller that Alex Berenson, Ted Bell, Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, and Barry Eisler fans have hailed and that restarted the best-selling Scorpion series.

And don't miss Andrew Kaplan's best-selling Homeland original prequel novels, the riveting official tie-in books based on the award-winning hit television series Homeland, starting with international phenomenon Homeland: Carrie's Run, which topped best-seller charts around the world. Also look for Homeland: Saul's Game.
