Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A brilliant achievement. . . .Like the best work of Greene and Le Carré, it is more than genre fiction; it is literature. . . .[Convergence] is the most plausible, and perhaps the best spy novel ever written by an American." —Arthur Maling, Chicago Tribune

"An intelligent, readable novel about two kinds of intrigue—international and bureaucratic. He succeeds admirably at both tasks."—Ross Thomas, Washington Post

"A solid, provocative first novel about the 'deadly game of espionage' . . . Thoughtfulness and human frailty take precedence over action and suspense. Irony is the prevailing mode. . . . Fuller depicts intelligence work—its technical minutiae and its vaunted goals—convincingly. And he subtly weaves various parallels into complementary layers of potential convergence."—Jeffrey Burke, Wall Street Journal

"A fast-moving, dramatic, thinking person's spy novel."—Nelson DeMille, Newsday

Synopsis:

Three powerful minds converge, first in Tokyo in 1971 and again in Washington, D.C., seven years later. CIA agent Richard Harper, his protege Jerry Birch, and a Soviet agent are pitted against each other in a battle of intelligence, intuition and will.
