Sympathy For The Devil by Terrence McCauley is a modern espionage thriller featuring a long-hidden, international intelligence network turning against itself and to terrorism (available July 14, 2015).
Fans of Jack Bauer rejoice, your new hero just rode into town. Sympathy for the Devil by Terrence McCauley has enough gadgets to satisfy tech junkies and enough character to bring humanity to a story that is all too terrifying in its plausibility.
James Hicks works for The University, a black ops government anti-terrorism agency. He runs the New York office, a city already scarred by extremism, and Hicks suffers no fools. He’s not even that likable of a guy, a feeling shared by his supervisor.

“You’re right. We don’t have to like each other. We don’t even have to respect each other, but we do have to work together. Under other circumstances, I’d probably ask the Dean for another posting because I don’t enjoy working with people I despise and, believe it or not, I despise you.”
Hicks toasted with his coffee. “Feeling’s mutual, Ace.”
But Hicks has a job to do, and that is to find out what is going down at a cab stand run by a Somali ex-pat named Omar. And what’s going down there is much bigger than anyone initially thought.
