Micah Dalton isn’t paid to ask questions. He’s a “cleaner,” a CIA fixer sent in to mop up the mess when an agent or situation goes bad. But when his close friend and mentor Porter Naumann turns up dead in an idyllic Tuscan hill town, an apparent suicide, Dalton’s curiosity gets the best of him.

Naumann’s death puts Dalton on a collision course with a killer who has a penchant for intricate knife-work and Native American mysticism, a sadist who is killing ex–CIA agents. The victims are hard-nosed field men whose only link to one another seems to be a global surveillance operation called Echelon. The murders appear to be acts of retribution. But for what?

An elegant, original, and chillingly suspenseful journey through the darkest alleys of international espionage, The Echelon Vendetta will keep you enthralled right up to its final, supremely satisfying twist.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Pickleman | 2/18/2014

    " Probably one of the best "you never know what is going to happen next" suspense thriller books I've ever read. It grabs you early and doesn't let you go until the very end, and then you want it to keep on going.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Tom Armstrong | 2/5/2014

    " I took me a little while to get into Stone's "The Echelon Vendetta", but once I did it proved to be a worthy thriller/spy adventure. I would say stone is a step or two below the like of Clancy, Ludlum or even Vince Flynn, but the story is good, the ending is interesting and overall I'm glad I stuck with it. Definitely worth a read if you have a free afternoon. "

    " listened on audio book and missed several chapters. Could have done without the gruesome parts, but this was a good book. "
