Written with the authority of twenty-six years of military
and government service at sea and in Washington, P.T.
Deutermann's Red Swan is a brilliant, provocative thriller
about the contemporary war that no one sees, but which
will shape the future of America and China.
Set in contemporary Washington D.C., Red Swan begins with
an ominous phone call from Carson McGill, the Deputy
Director of Operations in the CIA, to retired CIA officer
Preston Allender. Henry Wallace is dead. A behind-the-
scenes operator at the CIA, Wallace was integral to the
Agencyâ€™s secret war against Chinaâ€™s national intelligence
service, which infiltrates government and military
offices, major businesses, and systems crucial to our
security. Wallace had severely damaged Chinaâ€™s Washington
spy ring with a devastating ruse, a so-called â€śblack
swan,â€ť in which a deep-undercover female agent targeted
and destroyed a key Chinese official. Now, Wallaceâ€™s
mysterious death suggests that the CIA itself has been
compromised and that China has someone inside the Agency.
But as Allender quietly investigates, he makes a shocking
discovery that will upend the entire American intelligence
apparatus. For Wallaceâ€™s black swan operation may have
been turned against the CIA; a Red Swan is flying and the
question is: who is she, what is her target, and where
will she land?
