THE DEVIL’S LIGHT tells the story of an AL Qeda operative named Amer Al Zaroor, who, on orders from Osama Bin Laden, directs the theft of a nuclear weapon from the Pakistani military, and then transports it toward its intended target, Israel. Meanwhile Bin Laden announces to the world that he will make a major terrorist strike on 9/11/10, the tenth anniversary of 9/11. Deep inside Washington, Brooke Chandler, a CIA operative whose cover was blown by an incompetent colleague in Lebanon, thinks he knows how the bomb is being moved toward its target and how to find it. First he must overcome the skepticism of the CIA and the White House, and then he must find the bomb and disable or detonate it before it causes the Middle East to go up in flames.

Quotes & Awards


  • The Devil’s Light will grab you from the very first page and never let go. Patterson’s amazing storytelling is made all the better by his emotionally complex characters. I was intrigued.” 

    Kathy Reichs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Temperance Brennan series

  • “Impossible to dismiss as mere fiction, The Devil's Light is a terrifying vision of what very well could bring down our world as we know it. With its real-life spies locked in a deathly struggle, this thrillingly told novel is all too real.”

    Robert Baer, former CIA field officer and New York Times bestselling author

  • The Devil's Light dazzles and illuminates, a page-turner that smartly and in breath-taking fashion snaps to life the complexities of the middle east and the struggle of nations and players for power. The books literally barrels along as the stakes grow ever higher. Deeply researched and thoroughly plausible, Patterson's is one of the most intelligent and entertaining thrillers about the world as it is, and the possible world to come.” 

    Doug Stanton, author of Horse Soldiers and In Harm's Way

  • “Masterful and illuminating, The Devil's Light is Richard North Patterson at his best. You will not want, or be able to, put this story down. It is tomorrow's catastrophe riding on the 'gleaming wings of science.”

    William S. Cohen, former secretary of defence

  • “Thoroughly engrossing.”

    " Not as good as some of his others. He tended to get on a soapbox sometimes. I found it hard to follow some things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Georgeann | 5/17/2011

    " all too plausible and neither side is black and white
    a should read for any one interested in some understanding of the
    complexities of the middle east "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 5/9/2011

    " Patterson's story telling in this one reminds me of a 6th grader with ADHD. I thought it was going to be a good book after the first few pagers, then Patterson starts going in all directions and muddies up the plot with back stories. Too bad, this could have been a timely story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 5/8/2011

    " Not bad, but not great either. Patterson should really stay away from spy thrillers. He doesn't hold up well in comparison to the masters of the genre. "

    " I loved this book. Aside from it being a good thriller, I learned a lot about the Middle East. "
