Robert Dugoni’s international spy thriller about former CIA agent Charles Jenkins, The Eighth Sister, published April 2019, has been an instant critical and commercial hit, garnering rave reviews from well-regarded crime writers and top reviewers and dominating Amazon Charts, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.
The Eighth Sister is a gripping espionage thriller about a former CIA case officer, Charles Jenkins, who finds himself at a crossroads: in his early sixties, he has a family, a new baby on the way, and a security consulting business on the brink of bankruptcy. Then his former bureau chief shows up at his house with a risky new assignment: travel undercover to Moscow and locate a Russian agent believed to be killing members of a clandestine US spy cell known as the seven sisters.
This fall, former CIA officer Charles Jenkins returns in The Last Agent. In this sequel, Jenkins is at home with his family, safe and retired, when he learns of a woman isolated in Moscow’s notorious Lefortovo Prison. There’s a strong possibility that it’s Paulina Ponomayova, the agent who sacrificed herself to save his life (in The Eighth Sister). If that’s the case Jenkins feels honor-bound to rescue her. However, the only way to find out for certain is to return to Russia. Out of loyalty to Paulina, Jenkins puts his life on the line for a new mission that could be his last.
