Read Red Swan Online Free - Set in contemporary Washington D.C., Red Swan begins with an ominous phone call from Carson McGill, the Deputy Director of Operations in the CIA, to retired CIA officer Preston Allender. Henry Wallace is dead. A behind-the-scenes operator at the CIA, Wallace was integral to the Agency’s secret war against China’s national intelligence service, which infiltrates government and military offices, major businesses, and systems crucial to our security. Wallace had severely damaged China’s Washington spy ring with a devastating ruse, a so-called “black swan,” in which a deep-undercover female agent targeted and destroyed a key Chinese official. Now, Wallace’s mysterious death suggests that the CIA itself has been compromised and that China has someone inside the Agency.
But as Allender quietly investigates, he makes a shocking discovery that will upend the entire American intelligence apparatus. For Wallace’s black swan operation may have been turned against the CIA; a Red Swan is flying and the question is: who is she, what is her target, and where will she land?
Written with the authority of twenty-six years of military and government service at sea and in Washington, Red Swan is a brilliant, provocative thriller about the contemporary war that no one sees, but which will shape the future of America and China.

A high octane, fast paced game of spy vs. spy. This international political thriller is the first book I have read by P. T. Deutermann, a retired Navy captain with 26 years of military and government experience and over 20 novels to his credit. His expertise in the subject matter rings true in th...

Deutermann is a good author, writing about World War II naval historical fiction and the modern thriller set in the nexus of the CIA, FBI, and military intelligence agencies. Unfortunately, this one isn’t one of his best efforts. Typical CIA stuff, but not very engaging. Interesting, but unbeliev...

There are so many ways to write a book that involves the CIA and FBI. Many of those books written have scenes about interrogation. No other book except 1984, makes me fear such an interrogation, not because of physical pain or torture but of the use of the lack of pain and what the mind can imagi...
