About the Author

S. Lee Manning spent two years as managing editor of Law Enforcement Communications before realizing that lawyers make a lot more money. A subsequent career as an attorney spanned from a first-tier New York law firm-Cravath, Swaine & Moore-to working for the State of New Jersey, to solo practice. In 2001, Manning agreed to chair New Jerseyans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (NJADP), writing articles on the risk of wrongful execution, and arguing against the death penalty on radio and television in the years leading up to its abolition in the state in 2007. An award-winning short story writer, Manning is the author of international thrillers. Her life-long interests in Russia and espionage are reflected in her Kolya Petrov thrillers, Trojan Horse and Nerve Attack (Encircle Publications, 2020 and 2021). Manning is currently working on the third thriller in the Kolya Petrov series.


"Nerve Attack is a gripping page-turner filled with vivid characters and unexpected plot twists. S. Lee Manning is a rising new star in the world of spy thrillers." -Steven J. Ross, author of Pulitzer Prize finalist, Hitler in Los Angeles: How Jews Foiled Nazi Plots Against Hollywood and America
"Manning writes with such authority about the shady world and shifting loyalties of the intelligence community, it's a wonder her novels aren't riddled with redactions. At once terrifying, unpredictable, and all too believable, Nerve Attack will leave you breathless."-Chris Holm, Anthony Award-winning author of The Killing Kind
"Suspense propels Manning's espionage tale... the colorful cast fuels the momentum. A reluctant spy leads this taut, effective thriller."-Kirkus Reviews on Nerve Attack
"An engrossing story of intrigue filled not just with suspense, but psychological insights into how a loner ex-agent is drawn back into past habits."-Midwest Book Review on Nerve Attack
"Bristling with suspense, Trojan Horse by S. Lee Manning hurls the reader into the dark underbelly of international crime, espionage, and politics. The dialog is sharp, the characters memorable, and the insider details are fascinating. This is an exciting new talent. May Manning's novels be many and frequent. You won't want to miss this, Manning's outstanding debut." -Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Assassins
"Authentic settings, non-stop action, backstabbing villains, and rough justice lace every page of this high-octane thriller. Settle into your favorite spot, take a deep breath, and enjoy." -Steve Berry, New York Times and internationally #1 bestselling author, on Trojan Horse
"A remarkable tale that makes espionage rousing, demanding, and occasionally terrifying."-Kirkus Reviews on Trojan Horse
"Thriller readers looking for powerful plots replete with strong characterization and international intrigue are in for a treat with Trojan Horse, a fast-paced action story of American operative Kolya Petrov, who is charged with tracking an evil descendent of Vlad the Impaler."-Diane Donovan, Senior Editor, Midwest Book Review / Bookwatch
