Retired CIA assassin Kirk McGarvey faces the most formidable adversary of his long and storied career in End Game, the action-packed thriller from New York Times bestselling author David Hagberg

The CIA’s headquarters should be the safest place on Earth, but a highly professional, violently psychopathic assassin is on the loose. A series of murders extends as far as a prison outside of Athens, Greece.

These gruesome crimes are not performed at random; a code carved into four copper panels of the legendary statue in a courtyard at CIA headquarters predicts the manner of the killings and their terrible necessity. Before the first Iraq war, something horrifying was buried in the foothills above the oil city of Kirkuk. It will not remain hidden forever.

Only Pete Boylan, retired CIA assassin Kirk McGarvey, and the CIA’s odd-duck genius, Otto Rencke, can uncover the truth in the four copper panels and find the terrifying device interred in Iraq. This devastating truth could well ignite the entire Middle East into an unstoppable, apocalyptic war. This may be the most dangerous assignment of McGarvey’s long and storied career yet.

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.
