The Threat Has Changed – The Consequences Haven’t

Susan Ouellette’s smart, fast-paced political thrillers plunge readers into the post-9/11 world of politics and espionage.  Maggie Jenkins, the novels’ unstoppable CIA-analyst heroine, searches for the next terrorist threat even as she battles corrupt politicians, inept bureaucrats, and her own self-doubt.  In an uncertain world filled with ever-changing threats, Maggie faces a choice between caution and courage, reason and prescience, inertia and action.

Maggie’s decisions affect not only national security, but also the lives of ordinary Americans.

Susan Ouellette’s novels will leave you breathless and guessing until the final pages.  To Uphold and Defend and Reluctant Martyr are thrillers for those who understand today’s security threats and the consequences of inaction.
