Hi there, Tradecraft fans! Mike and the Tradecraft team are hard at work producing the third title in the series, Evil Winds. We'll reveal some exciting news about that book in the weeks to come. In the meantime, we're rolling out a monthly initiative that we hope will help you get your hands on some more great reads!
Each month in 2018, we'll recommend a Thrill of the Month — a book in the thriller genre that we feel you'll enjoy as much as you have the Tradecraft series. And, when possible, we'll score Tradecraft fans an exclusive discount on the title!
In January, we're kicking off our Thrill of the Month recommendation series with a very thrilling title: THE HAN AGENT by Amy Rogers.
Here's a brief description of this exciting medical thriller:
Modern biotechnology propels an ancient ethnic rivalry to a terrifying new level…
In the 1930s, Japanese scientists in China committed heinous crimes in their quest for the ultimate biological weapon.
The war ended. Their mission did not.
Eighty years later, Japanese-American scientist Amika Nakamura won’t let rules stand between her and scientific glory. When the ambitious young virologist defies a ban on the genetic manipulation of influenza, she’s expelled from the university. Desperate to save her career, she accepts a position with a pharmaceutical company in Tokyo. Soon after, a visit to a disputed island entangles her in a high-profile geopolitical struggle between Japan and China. Applying her singular expertise with bird flu virus in a risky experiment may be the only way out. Little does she know that Japanese ultra-nationalists and a legacy of unpunished war crimes lurk in the shadows, manipulating people, politics, and science.
But DNA doesn’t lie. Amika uncovers a shocking truth: a deadly virus is about to put the “gene” in genocide.
Watch the book trailer on YouTube for a closer look at the adventure that lies ahead.
And here's what readers are saying about the book:
“Amy Rogers’s latest medical thriller is as exciting as it is frighteningly realistic. It could be tomorrow’s headline. Here is a story fraught with tension, and threaded through with scientific accuracy and speculation that will leave you stunned.” —James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Sigma Force series
“In a stunning ‘what-if’ author-scientist Amy Rogers resurrects the idea of Unit 731, Japan’s notorious wartime biological weapons division, weaving together a diabolical tale of science, genocide, and modern-day bio-terror. Sobering, suspenseful, and absolutely chilling.” —Barry Lancet, award-winning author of The Spy Across the Table, Japantown, and Tokyo Kill
“THE HAN AGENT is a surefire genre hit, fast-paced and full of elements of mystery and adventure.” --Foreword Reviews magazine
