Publisher's Summary

From the author of The Potsdam Bluff and Tailspin comes a new techno-thriller set in the near future and featuring man-of-action Tom Sweeney.

When the secret agent is laid off from his high-level intelligence job due to peace-time Department of Defense budget cuts, he takes the dismissal in stride, planning to enjoy a few months off as a swinging bachelor. But when an old CIA running mate is found murdered in the bathroom of Sweeney’s house, leaving behind a cryptic message, Sweeney finds that he is a moving target for mysterious killers.

Gradually, he discovers himself to be at the center of a complex international plot involving the cocaine industry, a swarm of vicious German neo-Nazis, and high-ranking US officials, including perhaps even Sweeney’s old boss, the President himself. Can one hero take on all of these enemies? Watch him try.

Terrific spy thriller

What did you love best about Sweeney’s Run?

Terrific spy thriller. Complex and interesting characters. A hero worthy of promotion. Sections of implausibility are overridden by snappy story line and banter among adversaries. Written over 20 years ago, is as contemporary as today.

Which character – as performed by Grover Gardner – was your favorite?

One of my favorite narrators. Easy to keep track of the characters by his voice.
