Have you ever wondered how the shadow wars are really fought? You know James Bond, Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer are dramatic entertainment but still you wonder…what is it like to recruit a spy, evade hostile surveillance, plan an operation or engage in back alley combat? What goes through the mind of an operator as they maneuver their way through the complex factors that govern clandestine and covert operations? How do they think, feel, plan and react to danger? What tradecraft do they really use? And, above all, what kinds of people engage in these dangerous, often illegal, activities and for what reasons?
If these thoughts have crossed your mind while skimming yet another novel meant merely to entertain, this may be the book for you. The story is fiction but the tradecraft and action are real, drawn from the author’s experience as a private contractor.
The setting is Pristina, Kosovo where a dead DIA case officer is receiving communications from his equally dead source. Is it a come on, a trap set to ensnare another US intelligence officer? Is there an unknown subject willing to continue the work of the murdered source? The placement and access shown by the accurate intelligence provided tempts DIA to investigate. Losing another case officer is a career killer, however, so the decision is made to use a private intelligence contractor. This deniable operator can seek out the new source, assess the viability of recruitment and, if things go bad, die without taking anyone’s career with them.
KVSPARROW lets you follow along inside the mind of an operator in one small engagement of the shadow wars.
