Review:

"A one session rocket of a thriller."―Financial Times, Best Books of 2012

"The novel begins literally with a bang and never lets up. His writing manages to be both economical and evocative. Pure genius."
Shawna Seed, The Dallas Morning News

"Screenwriter and novelist Derek Haas confidently strides into espionage with his adrenaline rush The Right Hand. A lean, no-nonsense plot....the vigorous pace never slows as Haas' sparse prose propels the plot that crisscrosses Europe. Haas introduces just enough spycraft to add intrigue, but never to overwhelm his story."―Oline H. Cogdill, South Florida Sun Sentinel

"Derek Haas is a vivid and cinematic writer and THE RIGHT HAND is a roller coaster of a novel."―Jeff Abbott, author of the New York Times bestseller Adrenaline and The Last Minute

"Derek Haas knows how to capture your attention with his first sentence and keep you in his thrall until his final words. THE RIGHT HAND is impossible to read in small bites. You devour it like a shark, hungry for more until you've swallowed every gob of flesh, every drop of blood. Haas doesn't know how to write a boring page; THE RIGHT HAND, like a triple shot of espresso, will keep you up all night, eyes darting back and forth, wondering how it's all going to end."―David Benioff, New York Times bestselling author of City of Thieves and The 25th Hour

"Fast-paced with lots of believable action."―Deadly Pleasures

"Haas spins a riveting page-turner with just the kind of sharp dialogue one would expect from someone who writes for the movies. Readers will want to see more of Austin Clay."―Booklist

"Haas has crafted a lean and mean tale laced with wit, mordant insight and, at perfectly judged moments, flashes of sharp prose. He paces his tale with crack action scenes that, however well they read on the page, may soon have film directors calling "Action!" These high-octane scenes, however, never detract from Haas' canny plotting, which is capped by a final, unexpected twist and a poignant fade-out. It's not the game, but how well you play it, and Haas plays it very well indeed."―Kirkus Reviews
