We got an interesting review from a reader the other day. Diane reviewed Agency Rules – Never an Easy Day at the Office. Here’s what she said:

“I generally don’t gravitate toward espionage and counter-intelligence novels, but Agency Rules – Never an Easy Day at the Office by Khalid Muhammad came up on my reading list, and I couldn’t put it down. The novel follows the activities of Pakistani intelligence operative Kamal Khan in a ruthless war against terrorism. Khan, a highly skilled and perceptive member of Pakistan’s military intelligence infiltrates The Sanctuary, a terrorist training and operations center in the mountains bordering Afghanistan. His competence as a fighter leaks through, leaving him a target and determined to bring the terrorists down.

Khan’s undertaking as an operative plays against a political and law-enforcement structure that is full of ambition and corruption as well as patriotic and visionary loyalty to Pakistan and justice. International forces play a role that is at best, self-serving, and at worst, subversive. Figuring out loyalties is part of the challenge of this read.

In addition to the fast-paced plot and riveting action, Agency Rules offers the reader a glimpse inside Pakistan, a part of the world that Americans know little about beyond the broad brush of what’s reported on the news. As a political junkie, I found the journey into Pakistan engrossing. Muhammad’s writing brings details of this culture to life that are almost as absorbing as the intrigue and action. Anyone who enjoys a spy/counter spy novel with a rapid-fire plot and shrewd sniper as the hero will enjoy this read.”
