This ingenious thriller follows two CIA analysts on the hunt for a dangerous Iranian nuclear scientist hell-bent on building a bomb right on America’s doorstep.

The USS Vicksburg is returning home when the crew comes upon a lifeboat bearing a dead Somali pirate who shows signs of torture. Questions immediately arise: Who is this man, and which ship did he come from? Who tortured him? Soon Red Cell analysts Kyra Stryker and Jonathan Burke have traced the dead man back to an Iranian ship currently bound for Venezuela—and the ship appears to have dangerous, radioactive cargo on board.

The Iranians’ plan quickly becomes clear—they’re building a nuclear bomb in politically unstable Venezuela, away from the UN’s prying eyes. Stryker and Burke must tread carefully, though, because diplomacy in Venezuela is tricky at best. A civil war is at stake if word gets out. Can they stop the Iranians before it’s too late?

From current CIA analyst and Red Cell think tank veteran Mark Henshaw, Cold Shot is a fascinating, thrilling, and richly detailed journey into the intelligence world that only a true insider could create.

About the Author

Mark Henshaw began his CIA career with the agency’s office of transnational issues in 1999 as a science, weapons, and technology analyst and became a founding “plankholder” with the agency’s Information Operations Center (IOC) in 2001. In 2006, he graduated from the CIA Sherman Kent School’s Advanced Analyst Program and undertook a three-year rotation with the CIA Red Cell, a unit charged with “taking a pronounced ‘outside-of-the-box’ approach that will provoke thought and offer an alternative viewpoint on the full range of analytic issues.” During fourteen years at the CIA, he earned eighteen Exceptional Performance Awards and was the recipient of the prestigious Director of National Intelligence’s 2007 Galileo Award. He graduated from Brigham Young University in 1999 with a master’s in international relations from the David M. Kennedy School of International and Area Studies and an MBA from the Marriot School of Management.
