Description

In Washington, CIA operative Todd Van Buren meets with a Washington Post investigative reporter who has uncovered strong evidence that a powerful lobbyist has formed a shadowy group called the Friday Club, a cabal whose members include high-ranking men inside the government: a White House adviser, a three star general at the Pentagon, deputy secretaries at the State Department, Homeland Security, the FBI and even the CIA.

That afternoon Van Buren, son-in-law of the legendary spy Kirk McGarvey, is brutally gunned down because of what he’s been told.  The same evening the reporter and his family are killed, all traces of the shadow group erased.

A grief stricken McGarvey is drawn into the most far-reaching and bizarre investigation of his career, the stakes of which could destabilize the U.S. government, and shake the foundations of the world financial order.  

 



Praise For The Cabal

“Hagberg is known for being prescient about terrorist events, and the finale sets up the terrifying challenge McGarvey will face in the next installment. One can only hope America's real-life enemies haven't thought to study this series.”
--Publishers Weekly on Dance with the Dragon

“David Hagberg writes the most realistic, prophetic thrillers I have ever read. His books should be required reading in Washington.”
--Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of The Assassin

“Hagberg, a maven of Mach speed mayhem, intricately moves pieces around his global chessboard until many bodies, plane crashes, and running sea battles later, action hero McGarvey wipes out the bad guys.  Hagberg’s long yarns always muscle their way to the top of the techno-intrigue-warfare genre.”
--Booklist on Joshua's Hammer
