    See the photo shot in the Oval Room. Observe the old white guys standing around grinning. Know that you are in for a bad time. Quirk's hero, security expert Nick Averose, asks us to believe that these fellows hold the real, hidden, permanent power. They regard us as sheep to be sheared, and we can't vote them out. They're capable of murdering any of us worms who get in their way. These modern Borgias appear when Nick stages a mock assassination of an ex-CIA chief to test the old man's home security. It goes wrong. The man is killed. Nick is set up to take the fall for this killing and any others deemed necessary, and his attempts to clear himself occasion a cracking-good suspenser carried by some fine writing—a gun barrel jittered in the air like it was writing in cursive—and leading up to a sweaty-palms finale that goes on for 100 quickly turned pages. The author displays uncommon knowledge of the effects of the undercover life: you're always looking over your shoulder, though you know nobody's there. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
