Synopsis: FBI agent Puller Monk is losing his mind.
His father passed away six months ago and left him a predisposition for Alzheimer's disease. Add to that a lethal American spy raised by the North Koreans, and Monk's life just got a lot more complicated.
Aware of his dark side and willingness to take chances no matter what the risk, Monk is asked by the NSA to go undercover. His mission: find the sleeper spy, infiltrate the contact she's been seducing, and stop her before she carries out her shadowy objective.
A gambling man with a jones for adrenaline, Monk lives for this moment: It's time to go rogue, to work in the shadows, to follow his own "Quantico rules." But with his failing mind and his demons close at his heels, can he even trust himself?
Riehl exploded on the scene with his hit debut, Quantico Rules, but in Sleeper he takes Puller Monk, the most fascinatingly flawed espionage figure in years, to the next level and readers on a ride unlike any they've experience before.
From the Inside Flap:
Praise for Quantico Rules
"Gene Riehl has brought a fresh new voice to the world of crime fiction."
- Harlan Coben, bestselling author of No Second Chance and Gone for Good
"Gene Riehl has taken his experiences and turned them into a thriller that is good till the last page."
- Michael Connelly, bestselling author of Lost Light and City of Bones
"The author, a former FBI agent, writes like a pro . . . further Monk adventures aren't just welcome; they're absolutely necessary."
- Booklist (starred review)
"Gene Riehl gives us something new, and possibly unique, with the introduction of Puller Monk."
- The Washington Times
"Riehl writes a lean, vigorous prose laced with self-deprecating humor, and, as an ex--FBI man, he fuels his story with fascinating inside details. . . . Riehl's flawed but determined G-man should shake some of the rust off the FBI thriller genre. Readers will be clamoring for more from Agent Puller Monk."
- Publishers Weekly
"The kind of inside knowledge about the FBI that only a veteran could display."
- Houston Chronicle
"Riehl has a light style. . . . Agent Monk is deeply flawed, which is an endearing quality in a fictional federal agent."
- Charlotte Observer
"Riehl knows the territory and portrays it with convincing and often chilling precision. To his insider knowledge, he adds the talent of a first-rate storyteller who keeps the action moving briskly while never easing up on the suspense button."
- San Diego Union-Tribune
