Hailed by Tom Clancy as a novelist who is fast becoming "the new master of gripping and intelligent page-turners," Kyle Mills is at the forefront of America's hot new thriller writers. His New York Times bestsellers Storming Heaven and Burn Factor showed Mills to be a storyteller of breathless pacing, stylish prose, and chilling effectiveness. In Sphere of Influence, he takes FBI agent Mark Beamon into unnervingly hazardous territory, with shattering results.

Mark Beamon has always been an unconventional FBI agent. Years of putting the truth ahead of political expediency have resulted in a dead-end job in the Phoenix office. But a new terrorist threat brings him back from the wilderness. A videotape proves that a terrorist cell in the United States has access to modern missile technology. Suspecting there is a connection between the Mob and the fanatics, Beamon is sent undercover with a fellow FBI agent. When the other agent is brutally murdered, Beamon's attempts to trace the man who fingered them leads him into an international criminal conspiracy that may have roots in the American government. As events plunge him into a river of deceit, he is forced to address the most important question of his life: What makes a crime a crime?

Mark Beamon, the hero of three previous Mills novels, has always been an unconventional FBI agent - and years of putting truth ahead of protocol have him languishing in a dead-end job in the Bureau's Phoenix office. But before he can officially be put out to pasture, our nation's war against terrorism pulls him back to the front lines.
Video tapes begin arriving at television stations across the country. On them is a terrifying message: A terrorist cell inside the United States possesses a rocket launcher and will begin attacking civilian targets within days. As panic takes hold and the economy begins to falter, the FBI calls on Beamon to accept one last assignment. Suspecting a connection between the Mob and these fanatics, Beamon goes undercover with another agent to meet with a Mafia don who might have critical information concerning the terrorists.
That simple meeting goes horribly wrong as Beamon's partner is executed after his cover is blown. Beamon, who barely escapes with his life, is determined to find the source of the leak and, more important, in one final act of self-destructive heroism, to exact revenge.
As he spirals into a world of drug trafficking, government corruption, murder, and betrayal, Beamon comes to know the mysterious Christian Volkov - a master criminal and a man with seemingly limitless power. Soon it is clear that only through Volkov will Beamon be able to avenge his friend's death and unravel the conspiracy threatening his country.
