In our new IN CONVERSATION series we are inviting our community to join two incredible local authors in conversation about a recent title. This month we are excited to announce Connor Sullivan's new book WOLF TRAP, a political espionage thriller. Author of THE LAST GREEN VALLEY and BENEATH A SCARLET SKY, Mark Sullivan, will be joining Connor Sullivan at Country Bookshelf on Thursday, March 30th, at 6pm.
Connor Sullivan, the Barry Award-winning author of Sleeping Bear, “one of those rare novels that keeps getting better and better and better” (James Patterson), returns with WOLF TRAP: A Thriller, another action-packed thriller following a shadow operative in the midst of a conspiracy with worldwide implications.
Under the direction of the Special Activities Center in the Operations Directorate of the CIA, over three hundred highly trained agents operate in the darkest shadows of the country’s covert wars. Plucked from the highest echelons of America’s special mission units, these individuals go through rigorous training by the Agency to perfect the arts of assassination, sabotage, infiltration, and guerrilla warfare.
According to the United States government, this Ground Branch of the CIA does not exist. But when diplomacy and military intervention fails, the President of the United States calls upon it to solve America’s most dangerous crises.
Brian Rhome, a former Ground Branch paramilitary officer, thought his time within this elite group was over. But now, he’s on a desperate race against time around the globe as he confronts the traumas of his past and unravels a deadly conspiracy that threatens the highest levels of American democracy.

During college, he worked for Warner Brothers reading screenplays before relocating with his family to the Gallatin Valley in Montana. Sleeping Bear, his debut, won the 2022 Barry Award for best first mystery/crime novel. Visit his website at ConnorSullivanAuthor.com.
