Truth in Hiding
A tremor in the desert. A suicide in prison. Unrelated and on opposite sides of the globe. But when Intelligence Watch Group analyst Casey Shenk travels to Washington, D.C., he discovers a hidden connection to a battle being waged in the clandestine world of spies and assassins. Casey's past and present collide in a deadly race to uncover the truth before millions of people are killed in a nuclear war no one can afford.

Assessment:

Frick's formulaic thriller presents dual crises as modern Iran conducts an underground nuclear test and think-tank analyst Casey Shenk defies melodramatic warnings to probe The Council, a covert top-level government group. Conspiracy-conscious Shenk's lofty denunciations of official falsehood peg him too unambiguously as the guy with the right stuff, while other characters tend to populate the canvas as duplicitous agents or declamatory mouthpieces for policy issues. The plot complexities of the spy-vs.-spy clashes ultimately sound too familiar to sustain interest in the unmasking of the powers in hiding.
