The Battle Lines Have Been Drawn. The War Has Begun. The riveting new James Hicks thriller by award-winning author Terrence McCauley James Hicks has spent his entire life and career fighting on the front lines of terrorism for the clandestine intelligence organization known as The University.

Editorial Reviews

In our new reality, Terrence McCauley's A Conspiracy of Ravens is not far from the realm of possibility. He hits all the right notes while creating an simultaneously entertaining and frightening scenario. Read it." - Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author of What You Break "Two parts noir and three parts adrenaline-packed intrigue, A Conspiracy Of Ravens is gritty and fast and taut - all the right stuff when it comes to a good, no, a great thriller." - Marc Cameron, New York Times bestselling author "Boasts tech savvy, international settings, nail-biting action, and an arsenal of twists." - Kirkus Reviews "Stunning set pieces... Solid fare for no-nonsense spy fans." - Booklist "A globe-trotting, action-packed spy thriller that mixes elements from several later Tom Clancy novels and the Tom Cruise-driven Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation... A solid choice for fans of international espionage." - The Real Book Spy "McCauley has masterfully crafted a scenario so terrifying the reader could have trouble sleeping. The combination of scary and thrilling may cause readers to miss meals, or work, to read the final outcome." - Book Review CrewPraise for the James Hicks novels by Terrence McCauley Praise for A MURDER OF CROWS "This exuberant thriller is, as they say, torn from today's headlines... McCauley is also a wonderful dialogue writer... this one really sparks." - Booklist (starred review)"Terrence McCauley has written an exciting, fast-paced thriller. Readers of conventional spy novels will discover that today's intelligence community and work bear little resemblance to what in retrospect are the tamer Cold War politics." - Bookreporter"A fast-moving spy-vs-spy thriller." - Kirkus ReviewsPraise for SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL"A fascinating, fast-paced spy thriller for the modern age, equal parts techno-wizardry and old-school tradecraft, and featuring a terrorist plot that reads like its been ripped from the headlines, SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL is an exciting first entry in what's already a gripping intelligence saga." - Owen Laukkanen, New York Times bestselling author of THE PROFESSIONALS"Hard to put down... the story line succeeds in large part because of the gritty and stylish narrative, the virtually nonstop action... those looking for some top-shelf adrenaline-fueled escapism will be rewarded." - Publishers Weekly"Merges the brilliant old school spycraft of Charles Cumming and John le Carre with the technology and contemporary feel of Alex Berenson. The action is fast and furious in this hard-as-nails thriller but what sets it apart is McCauley's grasp of how modern spy technology finds and tracks its targets. " - Library Journal"(A) fast-paced spy thriller... tautly written, tightly plotted... delivers action and suspense aplenty." - Booklist"A fast-moving noir spy thriller... a fun read for fans of classic espionage." - Kirkus Reviews"I love a spy novel to be steeped in intrigue, where the shades of grey are myriad. I love a thriller to be action-packed and suspenseful. When a book comes along that delivers both, I'm stoked. Sympathy For The Devil delivers both in spades. A terrific book from a writer on the up and up." - Matt Hilton, bestselling author of the Joe Hunter thrillers"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." - Criminal Element"Intense to the very end, Sympathy for the Devil is a 'must-read' for connoisseur of the genre." - Midwest Book Review"Terrence McCauley takes the grand old style of the classic masters of the genre, spits in its eye, then artfully polishes a sharp sheen onto his words with a modern sensibility. But the key to what he does so blisteringly well, is that he never loses respect what makes the classic style great - all the while doing so in a way that makes it wholly his own." - Todd Robinson, Anthony Award-nominated author of THE HARD BOUNCE and ROUGH TRADE"An adrenaline-charged spy thriller... will appeal to readers fond of technology-enriched escapist fiction." - The Rap Sheet (UK)"
