What critics are saying
“Lutz has collected virtually every award in the mystery field, and deservedly so. Here, the parallel plots fuse in an unexpected, pulse-pounding conclusion; the dialogue sizzles; and the secondary characters are richly and carefully drawn…This is a top-notch thriller from a genre master.” – Booklist (STARRED REVIEW)

The Honorable Traitors available in stores and online!

Officially, Thomas Laker is an employee of the NSA. His real employer, known as the Gray Outfit, is not listed—anywhere. When a Washington, D.C., insider is killed in a bomb explosion, Laker teams up with cryptographer Ava North on a desperate search for clues. The only thing certain is that another act of terrorism is imminent. Delving into the dangerous past when America was drawn into global conflict, they discover one of history’s greatest—and deadliest—secrets. In the wrong hands it can unleash unimaginable destruction. Now, to keep his homeland from plunging into its darkest hour, Laker will have to defend everything he believes in . . .
