This is the second English
translation in the Malko Linge series, featuring an Austrian aristocrat who is
regularly hired by the CIA to carry out the most dangerous and delicate
assignments. The long-running spy series, written by Gérard de Villiers, has
been hailed as France’s answer to James Bond.
In Chaos in Kabul,
Malko is summoned to Washington by the White House National Security advisor
and asked to carry out the assassination of Afghanistan President Hamid
Karzai. President Obama is desperate to get all American troops out of
Afghanistan by December 2014, but that country’s always unpredictable president
has proven to be a major obstacle. After accepting the mission and traveling to
Kabul, Malko is kidnapped and nearly killed on the order of Karzai’s entourage.
It soon becomes clear that a renegade CIA officer has informed Karzai of the
plot against him. After managing to escape, Malko finds himself alone and
running for his life in a hostile city. Download and start listening now!
