At midnight, in a secret medical clinic in Washington, D.C., two foreign doctors and their team are completing plastic surgery on an anonymous client who is changing the appearance of his face, among other things. After the procedure, the client begins to stir—and suddenly the operating room erupts in violence, and the clinic is ablaze.

Washington police conduct an arson investigation, with inconclusive results. But one tantalizing fragment of evidence suggests that a terrorist bombing may be imminent. The presidential inauguration is quickly approaching, and Washington’s police, fire, intelligence, military, federal, and White House security teams are making frantic preparations. Because of the strain on manpower, retired Secret Service agent Swamp Morgan is recalled to active duty. His task: investigate the incineration of the medical clinic as a "firefly"—Washington-speak for something that looks like a threat but isn’t.

As Swamp begins what he thinks is a routine check-and-dismiss, the clinic’s missing client begins preparations for his mission: to launch an attack on the American government—a decapitation strike intended to wipe out both the outgoing and incoming administrations. As the crucial day approaches, Swamp, the only agent to take the firefly seriously, must operate alone as the clock clicks down to a breathtaking finale.

Filled with brilliant twists and turns and heart-in-your-throat suspense, The Firefly offers first-class entertainment from beginning to end.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 11/17/2012

    " While the book had a very likable main character, the final plot-twist was absolutely, 100% preposterous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 George Frank | 9/10/2012

    " The first of his books that I've read. Will probably read more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mydixon | 12/11/2011

    " Love it up until the end. Did not expect it to end like that. All in all a good read. I will try more of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 10/25/2011

    " A bit over the top but a page turner nonetheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Whitney | 9/25/2011

    " Government conspiracies, terrorists, and CIA! Oh my! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 8/17/2010

    " Awesome! Read in car on audio CD. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alan | 5/26/2010

    " Plot is indeed ridiculous. Get a retired agent to serve as front man in elaborate hoax to foil terrorists. Not a bad read, though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Genine Franklin-Clark | 5/7/2010

    " Only an hour to go on this very long audiobook, but I quit. Not bad until now, when credibility was stretched too far, and was broken. This wasn't supposed to be fantasy, but suddenly it is. Sorry, just way too hard to suspend my belief on this one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 4/9/2010

    " I know the plot seems ridiculous but did anyone ever believe that 9/11 could happen? I think this book would make a terrific thriller. I have never read this author before but am definitely putting him on my list of must reads.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jan | 4/2/2010

    " Too much cursing for me ... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg Pittman | 2/27/2009

    " First time reading this author and I was impressed. Suspenseful thriller from the first pages till the last ones. CIA, FBI, Secret Service, this one has it all. Can't wait to read one of his previous books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 9/23/2008

    " I thought that I had it figured out and then I finished the book. It keeps you in the plot until the last sentence. "
