The head of Egypt's State Internal Security is brutally murdered in a Cairo café—his assailant a faceless killer known only as "the Palestinian." It is the opening move in a chilling game of terror that has caught the international intelligence community completely off-guard, and the CIA turns to the one man they believe can get to the twisted roots of a looming nightmare shrouded in mystery: a former Company operative code-named Scorpion.

The breakneck hunt for a mastermind is leading Scorpion from the Middle East to the dangerous underworld of the capitals of Europe. With the fate of the free world in the hands of two well- matched adversaries there is no margin for error. But a shocking truth has been kept from the determined manhunter . . . and beauty will blind him to the ultimate betrayal.

Quotes & Awards

  • “One of the smartest, swiftest, and most compelling spy novels I’ve read in years.”

    Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “Delivers more heart-thumping twists and turns, beliefs and betrayals, than Day of the Jackal and The Spy Who Came in from the Cold rolled into one. Scorpion Betrayal breaks the mold. As a penetrating and fascinating look into the dark underbelly of those tightly-interwoven worlds—global terrorism and international espionage—it is almost a textbook example of how to write a great thriller that today’s readers will love.”

    Katherine Neville, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Kaplan is back with a vengeance in this lightning-swift tale of espionage that opens with a shocking assassination in a Cairo café and then races through the capitals of Europe as Scorpion—a legendary ex-CIA-now-freelance spy—runs his quarry to ground before it’s too late. The authenticity is palpable. I love this novel. Andrew Kaplan represents a gold standard in thriller writing.”

    David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Kaplan has a masterful grasp of the inner workings of intelligence agencies and their fight against terror that he weaves through this suspenseful tale of espionage.”

    Reza Kahlili, author of A Time to Betray: The Astonishing Double Life of a CIA Agent Inside the Revolutionary Guards of Iran

  • “The ending is both logical and refreshingly unexpected. It’s a great read, filled with fabulous facts and frequent flashes that are surprising, but completely believable. I hate to use the cliché, but it’s ture: I couldn’t put it down!”

    Brian Garfield, author of Death Wish and Hopscotch

    " Scorpion was a little too undercover for me. Had a hard time understanding where the hell he was and why the hell he was there in the first place. But he did seem to know what he was doing and he certainly got his spy business done. "

    " There were so many Arabic and Dutch words that it threw off my concentration. Also he had to explain the moves he used in fight scenes as if it was a text book. The story line was good, but I was distracted much of the time. "
