Banquo's Ghosts

(2009)
A novel by

 
 
After learning that an Iranian scientist is in the process of developing nuclear weapons on Iranian soil, all-but-forgotten spymaster Stewart Banquo initiates a rogue special operation. With the assistance of his most trusted agent, Robert Wallets, Banquo recruits Peter Johnson, a dissolute, morally bankrupt liberal news journalist, to travel to Iran. Johnson poses as a sympathetic reporter writing a piece on the country's nuclear facilities. His mission: to kill the scientist. Like many elaborate plans, Johnson's assassination attempt goes awry. The journalist falls into Iranian hands and is tortured to confess - a staggering security crisis for the United States. Aided by Wallets and the battle-hardened Marjorie Morningstar - the CIA operatives who trained him - Johnson escapes from Iran.

Now back in the United States, Johnson helps Banquo and his CIA cohorts lead a team of federal agents and New York City officials in tracking down a group of suspected Iranian terrorists in New York who are planning to commit nuclear terrorism by dispersing a highly radioactive material throughout the city streets and subways. When Johnson's only daughter is kidnapped by the Iranians, he and Banquo must race against time to save her...and the City of New York.
