Shadow Target – Book Excerpt!

Below is an excerpt from the thriller Shadow Target by David Ricciardi!

About the book:
SHADOW TARGET (Berkley Hardcover; June 2021), finds Jake Keller on a list of CIA agents that have been picked off. Jake doesn’t know who is trying to kill him and he doesn’t know why. Still, it’s a threat he can’t ignore.

When his small plane crashes in the Alps, Jake is the only survivor. A rescue helicopter soon arrives, but the men inside are not there to save anyone. They are determined to complete the murderous job they started.

Jake escapes from the mountainside deathtrap, but it won’t be the only attempt on his life. If he’s to have any chance at surviving, he’ll have to find out who’s behind the killings. But the circle of people Jake can trust is distressingly small as he suspects that someone inside the Agency is feeding his every move to the very people who are trying to end his life.

Jake’s quest takes him to the candle-lit cathedrals of Paris and the rain-slicked streets of London. He makes contact with old friends and new enemies along the way–but his true nemesis may be closer than he imagines.

Excerpt:

JAKE CLIPPED HIS access badge onto his jacket and walked across the CIA seal into the original headquarters building. The white marble lobby was dramatic, meant to inspire confidence and reflect enlightenment. Jake passed the Memorial Wall, where stars had been carved into the stone for the CIA employees who’d lost their lives in service to the country. In front of the wall was the Book of Honor. It held the names of the dead and blank lines for those who had lost their lives in times and places that could never be revealed. Many of the men had died in plane crashes. It was a hazard of an occupation that often demanded spur of the-moment access to dangerous places.

A well-known hazard.
