Fire: A Spy Thriller
Life imitates art for Brian Michael Bendis who gathered inspiration for his graphic novel from the American intelligence community. While a fan of traditional spy novels, I enjoyed how the graphic art moved the narrative along, increasing the drama! Fire is a quick read revealing the anxious, paranoid existence of a spy's life.
Bendis also encourages his readers to check out the following titles:
- Veil: The Secret Wars Of The CIA, 1981-1987 by Bob Woodward
- Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy by Jim Marrs
- All The President's Men by Carl Bernstien and Bob Woodward
- The Spy That Came In From The Cold, The Russia House, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and The Night Manager - all by John le Carré
- The Once and Future King by T.H. White
And remember, if a stranger makes you an offer too good to be true, don't ask questions...RUN!
