Banquo’s Ghosts is an explosive and topical thriller about a potential US war with Iran, written by one of the leading voices of the conservative movement.

After learning that an Iranian scientist is in the process of developing nuclear weapons on Iranian soil, all-but-forgotten spymaster Stewart Banquo initiates a rogue special operation. With the assistance of his most trusted agent, Robert Wallets, Banquo recruits Peter Johnson, a dissolute, morally bankrupt liberal news journalist, to travel to Iran. Johnson poses as a sympathetic reporter writing a piece on the country’s nuclear facilities. His mission: to kill the scientist. Like many elaborate plans, Johnson’s assassination attempt fails. The journalist falls into Iranian hands and is tortured to confess—a staggering security crisis for the United States. Aided by Wallets and the battle-hardened Marjorie Morningstar—the CIA operatives who trained him—Johnson escapes from Iran.

Now back in the United States, Johnson helps Banquo and his CIA cohorts lead a team of federal agents and New York City officials in tracking down a group of suspected Iranian terrorists in New York who are planning to commit nuclear terrorism by dispersing a highly radioactive material throughout the city streets and subways. When Johnson’s only daughter is kidnapped by the Iranians, he and Banquo must race against time to save her—and the City of New York.

Quotes & Awards

  • "Banquo’s Ghosts is a conservative gateway drug. Buy it.”

    Stephen Colbert

  • “Part send-up of the drive-by media and the New York cocktail circuit, part warning about the evils of our enemies and the necessity of eternal vigilance—Banquo’s Ghosts is all rollicking fun. You’ll learn, you’ll laugh, you’ll get mad, and you won’t want it to end.”

    Rush Limbaugh

  • “Lowry and Korman skewer the pompous media and feckless bureaucrats in this wild ride of a novel. And they always come back to the central point: we live in a dangerous world and must never forget it.”

    Sean Hannity

  • Banquo’s Ghosts is an intelligent, supercharged thriller. Rich Lowry & Keith Korman have crafted a scenario so real, and so frightening, that readers (both inside and outside the CIA) will undoubtedly lose sleep over it. This is what the modern espionage novel is all about.”

    Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Last Patriot
