A series of firebombs go off in the London Underground – the smoke alone kills hundreds and paralyzes the city. Once the culprits are ID’d as Muslim extremists with ties to al-Qaeda, Tara Chace joins other British intelligence operatives on the bleeding edge of the government’s hastily conceived response. By mining the world of his award-winning Q&C comics, Greg Rucka has crafted his finest novel yet. A Gentleman’s Game is the rare spy thriller that rewards patient readers with action that feels earned, not forced, with facts that feel researched, not made up, and with revelations that cause shivers, not disbelief (e.g., a certain CIA analyst becoming president). And it doesn’t hurt that Chace is the most tough-as-nails-but-still-shag-worthy secret agent since Mata Hari.
