In the exciting new thriller from the author of the internationally best-selling Intern's Handbook, a private airport security contractor becomes a counterterrorism operative and must stop an attack that will destabilize the US and cause global chaos.
Kennedy - a private airport security contractor - knows more about airports than the head of the TSA, and he feels more comfortable in his British Airways Club World flatbed seat than in his own home. Haunted by the memory of his sister's death on 9/11, Kennedy takes his job and the protection of the American people very seriously. So when he's kidnapped and recruited into a CIA ghost operation known as Red Carpet, he jumps at the opportunity to become a civilian asset working with a team of some of the CIA's best counterterrorism analysts and spec ops soldiers as they race against the clock to stop the greatest terrorist threat the United States will ever face.
Shane Kuhn's bold, darkly comic voice has earned him rave reviews for his previous titles, starting with Intern's Handbook, which was called "a serious guilty pleasure" by The Seattle Times and "explosively violent and psychologically wily the way a good thriller should be" by the New York Post. Shane brings that same intense voice and gripping storytelling to The Asset - an edge-of-your seat listen you won't be able to turn off.

Worth the listen - but it's a slow build in comparison to his other books (The Interns Handbook, etc.). Still, was quite surprised and ended up really enjoying it. As always - great job Pete Simonelli!!
