Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Before it’s in the news, it’s in Mark Henshaw’s novels. Cold Shot has all the hallmarks of a masterful espionage thriller—killer action scenes, heroes and villains on every side, suspense to spare, a timely plot, and above all else chilling insight into the secret world of intelligence. If you want to know what’s going on in Venezuela, read this book. You will be entertained and amazed.” Stephen Hunter, New York Times bestselling author of I, Sniper
“Combines inspired data analysis, corrupt geopolitical maneuvering, and searing action.” Publishers Weekly
“Henshaw, who spent thirteen years as a CIA analyst, has a firm grasp of how the intelligence community operates, and uses that knowledge to deliver another winner. Readers seeking a revealing portrait of the covert world need look no further.” Booklist
“Tense, suspenseful, and loaded with immersive detail…[Henshaw] provides a Clancy-esque level of detail but without dragging the story down.” Kirkus Reviews

Author Bio: Mark Henshaw

Mark Henshaw began his CIA career with the agency’s office of transnational issues in 1999 as a science, weapons, and technology analyst and became a founding “plankholder” with the agency’s Information Operations Center (IOC) in 2001. In 2006, he graduated from the CIA Sherman Kent School’s Advanced Analyst Program and undertook a three-year rotation with the CIA Red Cell, a unit charged with “taking a pronounced ‘outside-of-the-box’ approach that will provoke thought and offer an alternative viewpoint on the full range of analytic issues.” During fourteen years at the CIA, he earned eighteen Exceptional Performance Awards and was the recipient of the prestigious Director of National Intelligence’s 2007 Galileo Award. He graduated from Brigham Young University in 1999 with a master’s in international relations from the David M. Kennedy School of International and Area Studies and an MBA from the Marriot School of Management.
