Publisher Description

David (as he's currently known) was one of an elite corps of spies trained during the chilliest days of the Cold War. But those days are long gone and for nine years he has been an ordinary, upstanding citizen... Until, that is, a phone call in the middle of the night awakens him. The only other known survivor of that elite corps has gone rogue. They need David to stop him.

What ensues is an existential cat-and-mouse game played out across the board that is the American landscape.

Haunting, visceral, and utterly magnificent, Death Will Have Your Eyes is a novel about spying in the way that All The King's Men is a novel about politics - ultimately, its agents spy into that oddity known as the human condition.

'The espionage novel as existential road movie. Outstanding' - The Edge Magazine

'James Sallis is a superb writer' - Times

'Vivid and strange, with prose like blown glass, Death Will Have Your Eyes is somehow equal parts Borges and Trevanian's Shibumi. I was enthralled' - Jonathan Lethem

Look out for more from James Sallis in the Turner trilogy and the Lew Griffin series.
