Check out Andrew Kaplan’s “Scorpion Deception,” the newest entry in Kaplan’s “Scorpion Series,” which just released last Tuesday (28 May 2013). Last year about this time, I had the pleasure of winning an ARC of “Scorpion Winter.” I praised Kaplan’s engaging prose and solid narrative. His writing is incredibly reminiscent of the classic spy novels of the past several decades, and his style can easily be compared to that of Ian Fleming, Raymond Benson, John le Carré, Tom Clancy, and Joseph Kanon.
Following Kaplan’s first two entries in the successful “Scorpion Series,” “Scorpion Deception” aims to raise the bar on the spy genre once-more.
Kaplan had this to say about his latest endeavor:
Frankly, with Syria in the news and the U.S. contemplating military action against Iran that could escalate into war, I can’t think of a book that will give readers greater insight into what’s happening today in the undercover war of espionage and more importantly, what’s going on inside Iran, posht-e pardeh “behind the curtain”, than Scorpion Deception. All this in an incredibly suspenseful story about love – Scorpion’s most passionate love ever – and deception that rockets from the refugee camps of Africa and across Europe to Tehran’s ruling inner circles. This is by far, the most timely and perhaps important book I’ve ever written.
So, if you are looking for a no holds barred, spy romp that is fast-paced and chocked full of intelligence gathering and espionage, than “Scorpion Deception” is the novel for you. “Scorpion Deception” is currently available in print, ebook, and audio books formats wherever books are sold. Check it out, and give it at least a ‘Cheers’ in appreciation.
