ABOUT THE BOOK


John le Carré meets the Coen brothers in this inspired road novel about secret agents on a mission to find meaning in their lives....

David (as he's currently known) was one of an elite corps of spies trained during the chilliest days of the Cold War. But those days are long gone and for nine years he has been an ordinary, upstanding citizen....Until, that is, a phone call in the middle of the night awakens him. The only other known survivor of that elite corps has gone rogue. They need David to stop him.

What ensues is an existential cat-and-mouse game played out across the board that is the American landscape. Haunting, visceral, and utterly magnificent, Death Will Have Your Eyes is a novel about spying in the way that All the King's Men is a novel about politics - ultimately, its agents spy into that oddity known as the human condition.
