Author James Best continues to stun his fans and book enthusiasts through his gripping political thriller that presents a provocative premise—the 9/11 incident that claimed thousands of lives was an inside job. The Secret Agenda couched in fast-paced and multi-layered plots. This second engaging novel paints the picture of an intensely-plotted political thriller framed within factual extracts of information. It will undoubtedly stretch your imagination.
Best’s mentor in his writing, the prolific and best-selling writer, J. Herbie Brennan, has said: “James Best is a vivid writer and his work will transport you to distant realms of place and mind. When you emerge, your soul will be better for the trip.” It was Brennan who wrote the introduction to Best’s first novel, The Secret of the Scrolls.
By turns, Best’s second novel is incisive and exhilarating, The Secret Agenda centres on John O’Rourke, a former priest now working as a journalist. He comes into possession of crucial evidence establishing the long-term plans of those in power in both the US and the UK. O’Rourke knows too much and his life is at risk as he follows a trail of deception and intrigue that stretches from Dubai to Afghanistan, from the Balkans to London, Italy and ultimately Washington. But as O’Rourke amasses his proof, an unexpected development occurs. He is offered a stark choice with a 48-hour deadline -- accept a million pounds to keep silent or risk death for himself and his family.
Best makes use of his unique gift to create an instant literary favorite in The Secret Agenda. Dealing with the most controversial issues that plague the world today, this book clothed in action, speculation and intrigue tells of a man’s bleak dilemma, yet his commitment to truth may mean the destruction of those he loves most.
Without a doubt, readers will find themselves hooked into the The Secret Agenda in one sitting as they unravel one shocking secret after the other.
