On April 13, 2021, James Reece—one of the most badass characters to explode on the thriller scene in decades—returns in The Devil’s Hand, the all-new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Jack Carr.
Reece, who first appeared in the 2018 blockbuster hit The Terminal List (which will soon be a major television series on Amazon starting Chris Pratt) before returning in True Believer (2019), was last seen in Savage Son, an instant bestseller back in April. That book, Carr’s most action-packed story to date, followed James as he took on a dangerous predator who started hunting humans for sport, along with a team of Russian assassins, in what Joe Rogan called a “f*cking riveting” thriller earlier this year.
This time around, Reece will stare down what is arguably his toughest mission to date when a plan is hatched to defeat the most powerful nation on earth using a dangerous new bioweapon that could bring America to her knees.
In an exclusive statement, Jack Carr told The Real Book Spy, “As a student of war, I wondered what the enemy has learned by watching us in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past twenty years. What lessons have they taken away and how have both state and non-state actors incorporated those lessons into their battle plans? We’ve handed them the playbook on how to defeat us. What if they were to take those lessons and strike while we are distracted on the home front? ”
“The Devil’s Hand throws James Reece into a plot decades in the planning, one that will test the resolve of a new president as foreign forces attempt to turn us against ourselves and destroy the very foundation of the republic.”
