Fellow authors and NY Times as well as International Bestsellers


THE GALAPAGOS AGENDA is my kind of thriller – a brilliant and original premise spun out into a globe-spanning cat-and-mouse game that moves with a break-neck pace through a world of international intrigue, extreme wealth, political assassination, and ancient rivalries—and populated with some of the most wickedly drawn villains in recent memory. Leonardo Wild writes with the self-assured style of a veteran. This is a tremendously good novel.
