Product Details


“Christy makes his fiction debut with an exceptional adventure thriller… A riveting plot, complex characters, deep backstory, and an engrossing setting enhance this finely written novel about justice, personal responsibility, and saving the environment. Readers will come away eager for whatever Christy, the head of Special Investigations at National Geographic, turns his hand to next.”–Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Elephants and humans alike face mortal danger in this tense, complex thriller set in Africa… [Bryan Christy’s] experience as a special investigator for National Geographic informs this fast-moving debut novel. High marks for this one. Let’s hope it’s the beginning of a long series.”–Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Fans of both espionage and global crime thrillers will find a gem here: Klay is an introspective, flawed survivor who bends operative stereotypes, and the intersection of corporate greed, media, technology, and crime is chillingly current.”–Booklist (starred review)

“It is uncommon for a first novel to earn a starred review in the hallowed halls of this column, but Bryan Christy’s In the Company of Kill­ers ticks all the right boxes…You will not want to put it down.” —BookPage (starred review)

In the Company of Killers is a special kind of thriller:  crisp, fast, wise, intelligent, world-weary, violent, and propulsive.  Bryan Christy provides an indispensable inside-view to a world we only thought we knew.”—C.J. Box, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Long Range and Dark Sky

“I loved Bryan Christy’s In the Company of Killers, an exotic, riveting thriller unlike any other. In his fiction debut, Christy, himself a champion of endangered animals and an expert in wildlife trafficking around the world, uses every detail from his stellar career to inform the story of protagonist Tom Klay, a flinty, fascinating investigative journalist with a secret identity. When Klay’s best friend is murdered, he travels the globe to hunt down the killer, jeopardizing himself by revealing his double life and pitting himself against a ruthless and lethal adversary more powerful than he ever imagined. In the Company of Killers depicts locales like Kenya, Manila, and South Africa with authenticity and realism, and at the same time, brings to life the world of espionage, with neither borders nor laws.”–Lisa Scottoline, #1 bestselling author of Eternal

“An intricate and propulsively exciting thriller that is full of surprises”.–Booktrib 

“An inside look at a high-stakes world that will appeal to fans of classic international intrigue as well as those craving a more modern take on the geopolitical thriller. An adventure story for the thinking man.”—Alma Katsu, former CIA analyst and author of Red Widow
