“One of the best thrillers you'll read this year.”—Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author

No one knows what CIA desk jockey Zac Miller is capable of—including himself—until a routine surveillance job becomes a do-or-die mission in the Middle East.

When a commercial flight violates restricted airspace to make an emergency landing at a closed airport in Iran, the passengers are just happy to be alive and ready to transfer to a functional plane. All of them except one...

The American technology consultant in business class is not who he says he is. Zac Miller is a CIA analyst. And after an agent's cover gets blown, Zac—though never trained to be a field operative—volunteers to take his place, to keep a surveillance mission from being scrubbed.

Zac thinks it will be easy to photograph the earthquake-ravaged airport that is located near a hidden top secret nuclear facility. But when everything that can go wrong does, he finds himself on the run from the Islamic Revolutionary Guards and abandoned by his own teammates, who think he has gone rogue. Embarking on a harrowing journey through the mountains of Iran to the Persian Gulf and across Europe, Zac can only rely on himself. But even if he makes it out alive, the life he once had may be lost to him forever...

Praise for this book

"If you like a great chase scene, then you're going to love David Ricciardi's great chase novel Warning Light. In the air, over land, across continents, across the seas. The tension never flags. And the payoff? It's big." - James Abel

"Starts fast and never stops--you'll be turning pages as quickly as CIA operative Zac Miller uses his wits to outwit Iran's brutal Revolutionary Guard and bring priceless intelligence home." - Alex Berenson

"This is a fun and heady combination of suspense and intrigue. Believable and provocative, it's a tough-as-nails-tug-of-war definitely worth your time." - Steve Berry

"A breakneck debut thriller that Ludlum fans will devour." - Grant Blackwood

"Starts with a bang, and then gets better and better...one of the best thrillers you'll read this year." - Lee Child

"Warning Light is a blazing thriller with relentless pace and impressive detail. An engaging combination of intrigue and action, along with a breakneck cadence that will keep readers flipping pages to the end, Warning Light is a winner." - Mark Greaney

"Warning Light is best read in one sitting, like a ride on the Tilt-a-Whirl. Imagine an Adam Hall or Robert Ludlum played out over an all-too plausible Middle East scenario. Plenty of twists, turns, and action on land, sea, and air with a very scary underlying premise. Mr. Ricciardi knows his subject and conveys his story with non-stop suspense. The best spy thriller I have read this year." - Michael Sears
