Agency Woman

Happy to announce the release of my new novel, Agency Woman, on Kindle.

Amazon US: http://www.amazon.com/Agency-Woman-J...1574614&sr=1-1

Amazon UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Agency-Woman...1574669&sr=1-1

*************************************

A lost, wandering and damaged man finds himself drafted back into the world he thought he had escaped, when the local branch of a powerful, international Agency needs a mysterious job done in the remote Highlands of Scotland.
The new companion who leads him out of disaffected early retirement is a seductive, young, novice female agent, but could there really be far more to her than there at first seems?
They find themselves in a world of natural beauty, mountain and beach, which they will only contaminate with extraordinary rendition, abduction, bloodshed and torture.
The modern bureaucratic world of paperwork and subcontracting will mean that no-one actually knows which government or country is behind the operation, but one man will soon remember why he left Agency work like this and why he hates it so much, even though it may really be love that has dragged him back into it all.

A dark, Scottish tale of conspiracy, espionage, murder and terrorism, with an existential edge, and the spirit of an ancient mountain looming at its centre.

“The specific character of despair is precisely this: it is unaware of being despair.”
Soren Kierkegaard

*************************

John A. A. Logan is also the author of Storm Damage, and The Survival of Thomas Ford, an Amazon bestseller with over 125,000 downloads, and the winner of a Special Award in the eFestival of Words Best of the Independent eBooks Awards 2012

Loved this novel, John. I do think it could lead to disappointment for those expecting an action thriller, but I soaked it up.

I felt that this was an excellent study of a burnt-out intelligence agent and a real killer of the romance attributed to espionage. I liked the immediacy of the first person present tense and I liked having this jaded and warped filter throughout the narrative.

It came with some sacrifices. For example, I found the descriptions of the scenery to have lacked vividness and the action scenes a little disjointed. But this seemed to be true to the point of view you created.

I think I liked this a little more than The Survival of Thomas Ford, but both are going to linger in my mind.

Thank-you, Caleb! I'm really happy to hear that you enjoyed Agency Woman so much.
Yes, definitely more of a psychological/state of mind emphasis, with action erupting out of that on occasion! There is a trade-off to that first person point of view, yes: over the course of a long book it can allow a deep psychological furrow to be ploughed, but, especially perhaps with an occasionally unreliable, or even unwell, narrator, the external details can sometimes get a bit wild and woolly at the edges (seen through the protagonist's lens).
Really happy that you enjoyed AW as much as Thomas Ford (or maybe even, as you say, a wee bit more!)
