A Vanessa Pierson Novel Series : Titles in Order

Book 2
Former CIA officer Valerie Plame and Sarah Lovett, authors of the “tense spy thriller”* Blowback, return with a globe-hopping, nerve-shattering new novel featuring covert CIA ops officer Vanessa Pierson.

When Vanessa narrowly escapes a devastating explosion at the Louvre, she suspects the notorious nuclear arms dealer Bhoot was behind the attack. But after staking her career on capturing the madman, it seems a new and even greater threat has emerged.

A previously unknown militant group claims responsibility for the bombing and promises even greater carnage. Bhoot himself contacts Vanessa to confirm that a miniaturized nuclear device may have fallen into hands more dangerous than his own.   

As Vanessa’s investigation leads her to the real terrorists’ plans, she finds herself drawn into a perilous alliance with one of the world’s most dangerous criminals—a man who has become her darkest obsession . . . and perhaps her savior.
 
Book 1
Introducing Blowback, an exhilarating new espionage thriller by former CIA ops officer Valerie Plame and thriller writer Sarah Lovett. 

Covert CIA ops officer Vanessa Pierson is finally close to capturing Bhoot, the world’s most dangerous international nuclear arms dealer. One of her assets delivers explosive intel: Bhoot will be visiting a secret underground weapons facility in Iran in just a few days. But just as Pierson is about to get the facility location, an ambush leaves her informant dead. Now Pierson has two targets: Bhoot and the asset’s sniper.
 
When all the Agency’s resources aren’t enough to protect her assets from Bhoot’s assassin, Pierson risks going rogue and jeopardizing a fellow ops officer who is also her secret lover. With each day, the pressure of the manhunt mounts, forcing Pierson to put her cover and career—and life—at risk. With rapid-cut shifts from European capitals to Washington to the Near East, and with insider detail that only a former spy could provide, Blowback marks the explosive beginning to a thrilling new series.
