Now on television: Condor, an AT&T Audience Network original series inspired by James Grady's first Condor novel.
Look in the mirror: You're nobody anybody knows. You know pursuing the truth will get you killed. But you refuse to just fade away.
So you're designated an enemy of the largest secret national security apparatus in America's history. Good guys or bad guys, it doesn't matter: All assassins' guns are aimed at you. And you run for your life branded with the code name you made iconic: Condor.
Everyone you care about is pulled into the gunsights. The CIA star young enough to be your daughter-she might shoot you or save you. The savvy political aide who lets love trump the law. The lonely woman your romantic dreams make a fugitive. The Middle Eastern child warrior you mentored into a master spy.
Last Days of the Condor is the bullet-paced, ticking clock saga of America on the edge of our most startling spy world revolution since 9/11. Set in the savage streets and Kafkaesque corridors of Washington, DC, shot through with sex and suspense, with secret agent tradecraft and full-speed action, with hunters and the hunted, Last Days of the Condor is a breakneck saga of America's secrets from muckraking investigative reporter and author James Grady.

A man with the work name Vin assumes the CIA code name made famous by Grady's 1974 bestseller, Six Days of the Condor, in the slow, unengaging third novel in this spy series. A former agency operative put into protective custody years ago for reasons that aren't explained, Vin/Condor has a low-level job at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., where he sorts books discarded by military bases. His handler, Homeland Security agent Faye Dozier, checks in on him periodically. On one visit to Condor's apartment, Faye discovers her partner, known only as Bald Peter, crucified on a wall with his eyes gouged out. A confusing, ponderous chase ensues as Condor and Faye join forces to escape the assassins who killed Bald Peter and tried to frame Condor. The muddled mess of a plot is made worse by a mix of first-person and interior monologue that leaves the reader starved for context.
