Using a pseudonym to shield his identity, David Stone draws on his experience as an intelligence officer to pen a spine-tingling spy thriller that reverberates from Venice to London to Washington, D.C. When his "company" friend is gruesomely slain in a sleepy Tuscan village and the dead man's family later butchered in their London home, CIA "fixer" Micah Dalton takes action. Soon he is on the trail of an elusive fiend whose flair for ornamental blade-work suggests a link to American Indian mysticism. As the body count rises, the targets include active and inactive CIA agents and independent contractors-all with some connection to Echelon, an enigmatic Langley enterprise. Revenge may be the motive-but for what? "A terrific read. The Echelon Vendetta is terrifying, stylish and action-packed. David Stone lays claim to a corner of Ludlum territory and makes it his own."-John Lescroart, New York Times best-selling author of The Hunt Club

"THE ECHELON VENDETTA combines espionage and India for a story that is both chilling and sad. We should hope that author David Stone's story about a man killing CIA agents in horrible ways in retaliation for a past incident is pure imagination. Narrator Firdous Bamji puts all his acting skills to bear in performing this work, affecting the accents of British policemen, Italian investigators, Americans living off the grid, and sullen Indians with amazing skill. It would have been easy for the listener to get lost among such a large cast if not for Bamji's skills. His sturdy delivery is just what this novel needs to stay on track. M.S.
