About the Author

"Michael Frost Beckner is the rarest of spy novelists, a beautiful and compelling writer who also has a mastery of tradecraft and a deep understanding of how espionage really works." Joe Weisberg, former CIA Officer and Emmy winning creator of The Americans"Tony Mendez and I have been fans of Michael Beckner's work for many years - from The Agency, through Spy Game and his trilogy of Spy Game books. He captures the essence of spies and the cat and mouse choreography of espionage." Jonna Mendez, former CIA Chief of Disguise"[Beckner] evoke[s]...the moral ambiguities of John le Carré, the technical precision of Tom Clancy, and the violent impact of Robert Ludlum." US Review of Books After a degree in Novel Writing from University of Southern California under PEN/Faulkner winner T.C. Boyle, Michael Frost Beckner began a Hollywood career as writing assistant to Academy Award winner Barry Levinson on "Good Morning, Vietnam" and "Rain Man". In 1989, Michael Frost Beckner's script for "Sniper" launched a military-thriller franchise now in production on its ninth sequel. Three consecutive record-breaking spec script sales and three films later, Tony Scott directed Beckner's original screenplay "Spy Game." An international blockbuster that paired Robert Redford and Brad Pitt as CIA partners and rivals, it is now a classic in the espionage genre. Branching into television with his CIA-based drama "The Agency" for CBS, Beckner's pilot predicted Osama bin Laden's terror attack and the War on Terror four months before 9/11. In that series alone, Beckner would go on to predictively dramatize three more international terror events. Having penned close to 100 original screenplays, adaptations, and teleplays in the employ of every major film studio, television network, and cable outlet, he is a Hollywood institution. As a commentator on American espionage, Beckner has appeared on CNN, Fox News, CBS News, TF1 in France, and as a featured guest of Bill Maher on HBO. Now, in conjunction with the twentieth anniversary of "Spy Game," Beckner returns to the world of Nathan Muir and Tom Bishop with the release of his trilogy of Spy Game novels: "Muir's Gambit," "Bishop's Endgame," and "Aiken in Check."He makes his home with his family in the Red Rock foothills of Las Vegas, Nevada


Praise for Beckner & Bishop's Endgame:

"Tony Mendez and I have been fans of Michael Frost Beckner's work for many years. From Spy Game, through the Aiken Trilogy of Spy Game books: Michael's writing takes you into the intricacies of the cat and mouse aspects of spying, and the choreography of working on the street in other cultures. We have always been two of his most enthusiastic readers!" Jonna Mendez, former CIA Chief of Disguise

"Reading Michael Frost Beckner's latest episode in the Spy Game saga is like seeing Picasso's Guernica for the first time. A Cubist deconstruction of the spy trade, Bishop's Endgame traffics in what one might call Le Carré's Complications of Spying--that sense of moral responsibility--but couples it with an interior absurdist monologue worthy of Vonnegut... Bishop's Endgame bears the unmistakable stamp of unprecedented mastery." Alex Abella, New York Times Notable Author & Emmy Award winning journalist

"In a nutshell, the mythology of Nathan Muir is nothing short of epic, and nothing he says or does should be ignored. Electric from the get-go, Beckner's sequel is a supercharged fireball, a raging inferno of action and thrill." RECOMMENDED, The US Review of Books
