When FBI agent Erica Brewer finds a letter sent to her boss that begins with “I am dead,” and warns of a conspiracy to overtake the U.S. Government from within, she suspects a hoax. Three hours later, the apartment building of the man who claimed to be ‘dead’ is on fire.

Sharply executed, intelligent and fast paced, The 51st Directive takes a harrowing central theme, and delivers a power packed conspiracy thriller. As protagonists FBI Agent Erica Brewer and Detective Sam Marco find themselves battling against the clock to stop events that will change American history forever. With proceedings evolving in tightly focused chapters that take us to the crux of Michael Agliolo’s narrative it’s certainly a high octane read.
The tale that unfolds is a deftly crafted political techno-thriller that will have readers turning pages late into the night.
