A young CIA lawyer uncovers a dangerous worldwide conspiracy, masterminded by forces within the US intelligence community.

Marcus Condren has spent his life in the long, tall shadow of his prominent father, a former chief of staff and solicitor general to two presidents who’s also been responsible for securing every job Marcus ever had.

Marcus’ latest gig may be his most prestigious yet: a cushy job working for the Office of General Counsel to the CIA. His dream job turns out to be less exciting than he’d anticipated when he is sent on a seemingly mundane task, supervising the divorce proceedings of a CIA agent. But when Marcus uncovers a record of a puzzling bank transfer in his client’s files, bad things begin to happen everywhere he turns: poison, kidnapping, torture, and murder. As the casualties pile up around him, it becomes clear that Marcus is the final target in someone’s blood-soaked attempts to cover their tracks.

With the help of an ADD-riddled hacker turned CIA security expert, Marcus must unearth a massive government and global conspiracy that dates back to the founding of the CIA or be buried with the trail of evidence he’s unwittingly discovered. As the nation ticks closer to a costly, dangerous war, Marcus realizes there's much more at stake than the life of one CIA lawyer.

Quotes & Awards

  • The best thriller writers are always storytellers first and Guggenheim is, quite simply, a terrific storyteller. Part legal thriller, part espionage page-turner... If you ever wanted to know what the marriage of Clancy and Grisham would look like, devour Overwatch. Derek Haas, author of The Right Hand
  • Over the years I've used many hyphenated adjectives to describe lawyers (i.e., "soul-sucking," "bottom-feeding"). Now, thanks to Marc Guggenheim's debut novel, I can add a new one to the list: "bad-ass." Overwatch is a brilliantly-paced novel with the brains of a legal thriller, the testosterone of an action movie, and white-hot paranoia of a 70s conspiracy flick. Not only is Alex Garnett one of my favorite new heroes, but Guggenheim has also created a seriously warped villain - frightening not only because of what he does, but because you get the sinking feeling he might be alive and working in D.C. right now. Duane Swierczynski, author of the Point & Shoot
  • Overwatch doesn’t just bring together the legal and espionage genres. It merges family problems with professional ones, swirls in a major helping of murder and mayhem, and with a deft touch, reminds us why politics is—always—personal.”

    Brad Meltzer, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Inner Circle

  • "Overwatch doesn't just bring together the legal and espionage genres. It merges family problems with professional ones, swirls in a major helping of murder and mayhem, and with a deft touch, reminds us why politics is--always--personal. Brad Meltzer, author of The Fifth Assassin
  • “The best thriller writers are always storytellers first and Guggenheim is, quite simply, a terrific storyteller. Part legal thriller, part espionage page-turner…If you ever wanted to know what the marriage of Clancy and Grisham would look like, devour Overwatch.”

    Derek Haas, author of The Right Hand

  • “CIA lawyer Alex Garnett is the perfect contemporary ‘stranger in a stranger land’—a good man trying to maintain a dignified perspective within the moralistic marshes of Washington, DC. And now he’s also stumbled upon what he believes to be a substrata of lawlessness that makes the Old West look like an afternoon tea party. With a magnificent interweaving of law, history, and good ol’ knife’s-edge suspense, Marc spins out a gem with Overwatch. If you’ve ever lain awake worrying about who’s really behind the curtain pulling on the levers (and you know you have), then you need to read this.”

    Wil Mara, author of Frame 232 and The Gemini Virus
