With The Middleman, the perfect thriller for our
tumultuous, uneasy time, Olen Steinhauer, the New York
Times bestselling author of ten novels, including The
Tourist and The Cairo Affair, delivers a
compelling portrait of a nation on the edge of revolution,
and the deepest motives of the men and women on the opposite
sides of the divide.
One day in the early summer of 2017, about four hundred
people disappear from their lives. They leave behind cell
phones, credit cards, jobs, houses,
families--everything--all on the same day. Where have they
gone? Why? The only answer, for weeks, is silence.
Kevin Moore is one of them. Former military, disaffected,
restless, Kevin leaves behind his retail job in San
Francisco, sends a good-bye text to his mother, dumps his
phone and wallet into a trash can, and disappears.
The movement calls itself the Massive Brigade, and they
believe change isn't coming fast enough to America. But are
they a protest organization, a political movement, or a
terrorist group? What do they want? The FBI isn't taking any
chances. Special Agent Rachel Proulx has been following the
growth of left-wing political groups in the U.S. since the
fall of 2016, and is very familiar with Martin Bishop, the
charismatic leader of the Massive Brigade. But she needs her
colleagues to take her seriously in order to find these
people before they put their plan--whatever it is--into action.
What Rachel uncovers will shock the entire nation, and the
aftermath of her investigation will reverberate through the
FBI to the highest levels of government.
