Lawrence Parlier, an avid reader and writer of spy thrillers, stopped by to review a copy of Agency Rules – Never an Easy Day at the Office. Here’s what he said:
“Khalid Muhammad has crafted a superb novel that gives an inside view into the intricacies of Pakistani politics and its place in the world.
Set against the turmoil of the mid-90’s as Pakistan is left to deal with the aftermath of the Russian retreat from Afghanistan. Agency Rules pulls no punches in its portrayal of the corruption and faithless foreign alliances that have beleaguered Pakistan since its inception.
Centered on the pacification of Karachi, a secret military group leaves no stone un-turned as they search for the conspirators behind the assassination of Prime Minister Azam Shah. What they discover will lead them not only through the levels of the civilian government, but to facilitators from far beyond their own borders.
Mr. Muhammad leads the reader unflinching through both the beauty and the horrors of this troubled land.
If you are a fan of LaCarre, Clancy or Fleming, you owe it to yourself to read this book. You will not be disappointed!”
