Adam Brookes has been a foreign correspondent for many years, reporting for the BBC from China, Indonesia, and the United States. Assignments also took him to Afghanistan, Iraq, Mongolia, North Korea, and numerous other countries around the globe. Night Heron is his first novel, and draws on his life in journalism, his years in China, and his efforts to understand something of what goes on in the world of intelligence.
  • "The must-read thriller of the year." (NPR Books on Night Heron ).

  • "One of the best and most compulsively readable spy-fiction debuts in years."  (Kirkus on Night Heron).

  • "The pace is frenetic and Brookes does a wonderful job with both the high-tech world of cyber intelligence and survival on Beijing's gritty. smog-smothered streets. Highly recommended." (The Bookseller on Night Heron ).

  • Night Heron is a fascinating portrait of the dangerous complexities of spying in a restricted country, the competing agendas driving international intelligence, and China's startlingly varied social realities.A must-read for fans of espionage and smart global fiction in general. ( Booklist (starred review) on Night Heron ).

  • "Night Heron is a wonderfully cinematic novel -- I felt myself visually transported into every scene, watching the action unfold -- that also immersed me in the sounds and smells and feel of China, all the while telling a rich, complex espionage story. A remarkable accomplishment." (Chris Pavone, author of international bestseller The Expats on Night Heron ).

  • "Fans of the international espionage genre will inhale this fast tale in a few suspenseful breaths." (Library Journal on Night Heron ).

  • "Outstanding fiction debut... Brookes [is] a thriller writer to watch." (Publishers Weekly on Night Heron ).
