Barry Eisler

As you all know by now, Kepler's has tons of author appearances.  And some of them are Premier Events.  These are paid events that feature nationally best-selling authors.  Well check out this one coming up.  I've already got my tickets.  And if you haven't read Barry's John Rain series, I highly recommend it.  It's terrific.  And Barry is a really interesting guy. You will be happy you saw him.

PREMIER EVENT: Join us for a very special book launch with Barry Eisler
Tuesday, February 2, 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are available at Kepler's and online at Brown Paper Tickets

The God’s Eye View is a delicious, thrilling read about a deep state surveillance program that even Edward Snowden did not unearth…This page-turner is replete with references to real-life voices of truth and transparency, and shows how easily and quickly democracy can be subverted by government secrecy and unchecked power.” —Jesselyn Radack, lawyer for Edward Snowden
NSA director Theodore Anders has a simple goal: collect every phone call, email, and keystroke tapped on the Internet. He knows unlimited surveillance is the only way to keep America safe.
Evelyn Gallagher, manager of the NSA’s camera network and facial recognition program, discovers the existence of an NSA program code-named God’s Eye, and connects it with the mysterious deaths of a string of journalists and whistle-blowers. 
Her discovery unleashes an elaborate game of political blackmail, terrorist provocations, and White House scheming.  A global war is being fought—a war between those desperate to keep the state’s darkest secrets and those intent on revealing them. 
Barry Eisler spent three years in a covert position with the CIA’s Directorate of Operations. Translated into nearly twenty languages, his bestselling thrillers—including the #1 bestseller The Detachment—have won the Barry Award and the Gumshoe Award for Best Thriller of the Year and have been included in numerous Best Of lists. When he’s not writing novels, he blogs about torture, civil liberties, and the rule of law. Learn more about him online at

MILESTONE:  Just shy of my 5-year blogging anniversary (January 16), I have hit 75,000 page views.  I have no idea if this is a lot comparatively speaking in the blogiverse (that's actually a word in Urban Dictionary).  But I'm pretty happy with it.
