Joseph E. Mullany (b.1965-)
In the Shadow of Idols
Joe brings his corporate experience as a Business Manager and Strategic Analyst to bear in the Valkyrie Series, (In the Shadow of Idols and Angel's Prey) where he examines the recent outsourcing of intelligence gathering from governments to private corporations. The consequences of privatization are as varied as they are surprising. In his debut thriller, veteran CIA agent Valerie Vaughn joins the private contracting world and embarks on a new series of missions, with a new set of rules. Events lead inexorably to the dramatic conclusion that has since proved to be sadly prescient.
In Angel's Prey, the follow up novel to In the Shadow of Idols, things turn personal as a female assassin vows to avenge Valerie's killing of her assassin husband.Meanwhile, Valerie continues her struggle to come to grips with working for a private contractor rather than the United States.
These books are masterpieces of logic and cause and effect, wrapped into compelling story lines that engage the reader. Blending elements of mystery and humor into the typical spy thriller format, while giving the characters a real depth, Mullany has created a compelling and memorable series.
