Book: Kill the Asp - A Frank Gurrieri Spy Novel by Michael R Wrightcategories: Book, Revenge Thriller, Iran, Middle East, Action-Adventure, Assassination, Spy Thriller
Michael R Wrightabout this book: Kill the Asp is a spy thriller that takes place mostly in Iran. It's a quest for revenge and provides the reader with a visceral experience of Middle Eastern culture. Hidden in the book are references to the ancient Arab-Persian-Indian tale of unrequited love, the Romeo and Juliet story of the area.
There's no mention of the bomb. It's not a doomsday novel. However, it does inform of geopolitical tensions. Readers of Lee Child, Daniel Silva, Barry Eisler, and anyone else who likes a good page-turner will likely enjoy it.
The title is based on the antagonist. His Persian name is taken from a pre-Christian mythological villain. The cover, a snake, is a reference to that name.
Although I lived for five years in the Middle East and four in India, I carefully researched nearly every aspect of the book. The most difficult part in writing was portraying the hero. I wanted him to be as likable as Jack Reacher is to Lee Child fans. Let me know what you think.
