More About the Book: If, like Kane, you’re a Denied Access Area spy for the CIA, then boundaries have no meaning. Your function is to go in, do whatever is required, and get out again, by whatever means necessary. You know when to run, when to hide, and when to shoot. But some places don’t play by the rules. Some places are too dangerous, even for a man of Kane’s experience. The badlands where the borders of Pakistan, Iran, and Afghanistan meet are such a place, and violence is the only way to survive. Kane travels there to exfiltrate a man with vital information for the safety of the West, but instead he meets an adversary who will take the world to the brink of extinction. A frightening, clever, vicious man with blood on his hands and vengeance in his heart.

Nelson DeMille, New York Times bestselling author of Blood Lines, says, “The Year of the Locust is the must read of the year for the true connoisseur of the classic espionage thriller. Terry Hayes’ runaway bestseller I am Pilgrim was an amazing tour de force; The Year of the Locust reaches new heights in storytelling. Wonderfully literate, beautifully written, and tightly plotted. This one will stay with you a long time.”

More About the Author: Terry Hayes, the New York Times bestselling author of I Am Pilgrim, says, “It’s the tenth anniversary of the publication of I Am Pilgrim, which to my eternal gratitude, found a huge audience around the world. To my great relief, I have now completed my new novel, which has been a far longer journey than I anticipated. To say that it’s epic is something of an understatement, but I am incredibly proud of it and even more excited that it has the opportunity to reach an audience at last.” Mr. Hayes is also the award-winning writer and producer of numerous movies. His credits include Payback, Road Warrior, and Dead Calm. He lives in Switzerland with his wife, Kristen, and their four children.
