The explosive short story launch for the new novel LAST DAYS OF THE CONDOR "They led him out of the CIA's secret insane asylum as the sun set over autumn's forest there in Maine." Led him into a modern American nightmare any of us could face. But he's a legend, a silver-haired man codenamed Condor, a classic American hero in his first appearance since Watergate, on his way in this prequel to the upcoming novel, LAST DAYS OF THE CONDOR. And it's all about the price he's forced to pay to get there. Award-winning short story author, screenwriter and novelist James Grady delivers a bullet-paced, savage journey with the iconic character he created and that Robert Redford made an international sensation in the movie THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR. Love, sex, loyalty, honor and savagery loosed in our modern world electrify this novella, a portrait of heroism and horror and America beyond 9/11. It is an espionage adventure unlike anything you've ever read. "Grady is to spy novels as the great Elmore Leonard was to crime fiction," says Pulitzer Prize winning author Kai Bird, while John Grisham calls Grady: "A master of intrigue."
