His new thriller, Inside Threat, explores an attack on the White House sending the President and his top aides to take shelter in a top secret government facility buried deep underground—but they soon discover the threat is locked inside with them.
Eric Hill, a man who has given his life to the Secret Service, is one of the trusted agents hidden with the President within the bunker. Despite his growing disillusionment from seeing Washington corruption up close, Erik can’t ignore years of instincts honed on the job. The government is under attack, and no one is better equipped to face down the threat than he is.
The evidence leads him to a conspiracy at the highest levels of power, with the attack orchestrated by some of the very individuals now locked in with him. As the killers strike inside the bunker, it will take everything Erik Hill has to save his people, himself, and his country.
While monitoring an emergency line, a vigilant FBI agent answers a call that plunges him into a deadly conspiracy involving a mole at the White House. The Night Agent stars Gabriel Basso, Luciane Buchanan, and Oscar nominee Hong Chau. Season 1 is available now on Netflix and season 2 is set to be released in 2024.
