Inhaltsangabe:

John Byrne, a former combat surgeon, has been working in the overnight ER of a Washington D.C. hospital, trying to outrun his past. He served with members of a classified special operations unit now accused of committing an atrocious massacre. Thomas Hayes, the unit's fugitive leader, reaches out to Byrne to enlist his help with a series of daring heists and attacks that will either prove the squad's innocence--or culminate in a catastrophic terrorist attack.

Byrne isn't sure who to believe--the men and women he once trusted with this life, or Colonel Riggs, the leader of the task force charged with bringing Hayes down. Byrne must decide where his allegiances lie--or he and the entire country will face the consequences.

Rezension: PRAISE FOR MATTHEW QUIRK
"Quirk's writings drips with the kind of eye for the telling detail that only a canny reporter, detective, or spy possesses....If you like Ludlum you are certain to like Quirk." Ralph Benko, "Forbes""

"Matthew Quirk has elevated to must-read thriller status faster than seems possible." Cold Barrel Zero" is a brilliantly researched and written tour de force from an author who understands both high-stakes action and fine writing." "Michael Koryta, bestselling author of "Last Words" and "Those Who Wish Me Dead"""

"Quirk's writings drips with the kind of eye for the telling detail that only a canny reporter, detective, or spy possesses....If you like Ludlum you are certain to like Quirk." Ralph Benko, "Forbes""

"Deadly. High-tech. Characters are well drawn and motivated, and their exploits are hair raising. Quirk spins an adrenaline-fueled, military-based action adventure skillfully. Another hard-to-put-down adventure from Quirk .... even more chilling for its air of plausibility. A fine thriller." "Booklist (starred review)""

"What separates Matt Quirk from other military thriller writers is his insider chops as a journalist who has covered the real-world versions of the stories he tells. "Cold Barrel Zero" is gripping and utterly convincing. It's the tale real agents and operators would tell if they had Matt Quirk's storytelling genius." "Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of "The Afghan Campaign" and "The Legend of Bagger Vance"""

"A lethal game of cat and mouse fuels Quirk's third and best novel, a military spy thriller in which one all-out conspiracy is met by another. . . . The story is expertly stripped down, the action relentless, and the characters multilayered. . . . [Quirk] takes a major step forward." "Kirkus Reviews""

"Matthew Quirk's "Cold Barrel Zero" is an unputdownable blast! The writing is spare and masterful, you care about the characters, and the action is hair-raising, authentic, at times even mesmerizing. "Cold Barrel Zero" is one of the must-read thrillers of the year!" "Ben Coes, bestselling author of "Coup D'Etat" and "Independence Day"""

"Thriller Award-winner Quirk goes flat-out explosive in this superior military adventure novel. . . . There's plenty of cool cutting-edge technology, but in the end it comes down to action, and the riveting battle scenes are among the best in the business. Readers will look forward to seeing more of the skilled and deadly John Hayes." "Publishers Weekly (starred boxed review)""

"Quirk's fast-paced plot keeps the pages turning as readers journey with Byrne on a dangerous adventure. Highly recommended for fans of rapid action with down-to-the-wire conclusions." "Library Journal (starred review)""

"A relentlessly paced military thriller . . . Sophisticated storytelling [and] whiplash pacing . . . "Cold Barrel Zero" delivers some clever twists and startling surprises. . . . There are layers of moral ambiguity and questions at every turn." Art Taylor, "Washington Post""

"Adrenaline junkies need look no further than Matthew Quirk's "Cold Barrel Zero "for their next fix. The action is relentless and exceptionally inventive. . . . This is a must-read for fans of Jason Bourne or Jack Reacher." "BookPage""

"[Quirk's] best book yet . . . Quirk delves deep into the world of international terror and covert operations, and writes with such authority you half expect his prose to be riddled with redactions. The action dazzles. The characters feel authentic and fully fleshed. The threats seem all too real." "Los Angeles Review of Books""

-Brilliantly conceived and exceedingly well written, this is a military thriller that relies as much on carefully drawn characters as it does on plot points; this is a story about people, about friends who have become enemies, about the importance and fragility of trust. Intense and compelling.---David Pitt, Winnipeg Free Press
