About Klaus Marre

I first had the idea for “Human Intelligence” when I worked as a political journalist in Washington, DC, and covered the 9/11 Commission.
When the Pentagon was hit, I was across the street and I think the proximity to the attacks has given me and many others a special perspective of 9/11. I tried to convey some of the experiences from that day in this novel.
As a reporter, I covered Congress and the White House and I hope that my insider’s knowledge will give readers of “Human Intelligence” a realistic glimpse of how Washington works.
After a decade of work as a journalist, I quit my career to move to Thailand and write this book. Why? I simply didn’t want to wake up one day and regret not having at least tried to tell this story.
Aside from having spent time in Asia, I have also lived in Germany, France and Mexico. In 2014, I plan to move to yet another exotic country to make “Human Intelligence” a screenplay.
I sincerely hope that you will enjoy reading this book as much as I loved writing it.

You can tell Klaus Marre was a reporter in DC - what a very intelligent, gripping thriller! Every sentence was well written, too. Without trying to give any clues..I would advise readers who have to break up their reading into chunks to do so up to about page 100 - then get an evening and binge-read the rest! That's what I'd do the next time if not all in one go! Prepare for some suspenseful roller coaster surprises! I wish I could give it a 6 start review :)

One of the best stories I've read at Smashwords, it's exceptional. Thank you Mr. Marre. I highly recommend it. The editing isn't perfect but the errors are not major and don't detract from the reading pleasure. The story is unique and well told.

Human Intelligence is a gem. The plot is complex and the conflict is never ending. A truly great piece of fiction that made me feel good at the end.

This book is fantastic--a very prescient, suspenseful national-security thriller that takes you from the halls of power in Washington, D.C. to the far reaches of terrorist hideouts and everywhere in between.

Klaus Marre depicts all of this skillfully, with compelling characters and a masterful plot. If you're a fan of "Homeland" or "Zero Dark Thirty," you will be drawn into this book until you've finished reading the last word.

Human Intelligence is a good title for this book for many reasons, one of which is that it's an intelligently written book, in addition to being a can't-put-it-down thriller. I loved it! Beautifully crafted, fantastic plot twists, amazing planning. The authors research was thorough. I'm like another reviewer; I hate it when an author messes up details on a location I know well. I finished this in less than a day, because I couldn't put the thing down! It's well worth whatever it costs! Buy it. Support this author. Hope that he keeps writing, because he is GOOD!

This is a page turner, with one of the best endings you will ever read. Great character development as well.

You will love this book, and I can easily see it as a riveting movie.

Buy and read Human Intelligence. Now.

This was one of those books that kept me up far too late and reading for far too long when I have things to do. ("Just one more chapter...")

Love a book with smart plot twists that I don't see coming and was well satisfied with this one. Thankfully, there were no misses on location (I hate when entertainment messes up site- and I lived in DC for a year) or anything else that I could detect and I enjoyed the plot twists.

Will read again to see what I missed- in my need to know what happened as quickly as possible (and in my increasingly sleep-deprived state), I'm sure I missed some great details.
