About the Author

By day, Khalid Muhammad is a mild-mannered business executive keeping busy running a marketing and brand management company. By night, his alter ego emerges; one that has a penchant for sadistic retribution towards those who wrong others, and that spends its time devising intricate and detailed plans for a nefarious end.

Born in Pakistan's troubled Swat Valley, educated and raised in the United States, Khalid returned to Pakistan almost 17 years ago and fell in love with his country. His debut novel, Agency Rules - Never an Easy Day at the Office, is a journey behind the headlines about Pakistan, the world's most dangerous place, to deliver an intense story that will challenge the reader to question everything they have been told about the country.

He began writing to let the wickedness escape, as the other option means a great deal of blood, numerous torture implements and... well, infinite ways to dump a body. It's safer for everyone involved and less dangerous for the guilty... until he writes another book.

“Agency Rules – Never an Easy Day at the Office” by Khalid Muhammad is an extremely well plotted and well written spy novel. We follow his protagonist’s journey from simple soldier to a black ops agent and discover a quagmire of governmental inefficiency to deal with the negative groups in Pakistan: gangs, terrorists, Sheiks, etc.
The hero, Kamal Khan, uncovers a terrorist operation with a large training facility and a huge cache of arms. His objective to neutralize them is complicated by the groups and agencies inability to co-operate with one another. The politicians, Army, police, and spy agency each have an agenda at odds with the others, which creates a minefield fraught with difficulty and danger for Kamal to navigate through to achieve his goal.
Khalid’s book contains a myriad of historical data to better understand Pakistan’s position in Global politics today. It has given me a different perspective.
I highly recommend this outstanding spy thriller.

Agency Rules by Khalid Muhammad is an action-packed, no-holds-barred look at the life-and-death struggle in Pakistan, a country trapped in its own history. We are introduced to Kamal Khan, a privileged young man whose journey curiously resembles that of Osama Bin Laden. Kamal leaps from the lap of luxury into the maelstrom of tribal wars that threaten to annihilate his beloved homeland. An inept figurehead, Prime Minister Azam Shah, is bolstered by his Interior Minister, Ahsan Chaudhry as they face one of many threats to the safety and security of Pakistan. Kamal and his special forces team is forced to track down the elusive Shahid Aleem before he can complete his mission of destruction against the Pakistani community.

Muhammad provides us with an authentic backdrop as we follow Kamal through a series of pulse-pounding episodes in which he tries to see the forest while clearing tree after tree. General Amjad Ali is desperately fighting the bureaucracy in keeping his most efficient colleagues in play, struggling to prevent them from being shuffled around and discarded by the corrupt oligarchy. They appear on opposite ends of the spectrum, the soldier in the bush praying for support from those who pull the strings behind the curtain. It gives the audience insight as to how the greatest victories on the field can be marginalized or even reversed by those whose politics decide if an entire nation lives or dies.

Agency Rules by Khalid Muhammad is a fast-paced thriller that will give readers a different perspective on one of the most volatile regions on the globe. For action buffs and current events aficionados alike, this is one you won't want to miss.

I don't read this type of story often, but I'm very glad I read this one. As exciting as any espionage or political thriller you could read (or see in a movie) this one will pull you in. Only the names and places are different, set in Pakistan and showing the political structure and cultural behaviors so similar, yet so different from our own. It's a real eye opener to the difficulties that country and those who run and protect it have. And it doesn't gloss over anything, not the tortures or the explosive battles, showing blame where it belongs, even on those we call our own. I will remember this story, understanding better the news stories of its conflicts. It's a thrilling read, expertly done and you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend it.

Tongue Wagger - Agency Rules - Never An Easy Day At The Office by Khalid Muhammad

This novel would cross a very broad genre base and if I had to start naming them I would say that this is a Political Thriller, Espionage Suspense, Military Fiction, Action, Adventure, Terrorism Fiction, Crime Fiction, History, Multicultural and I think we can throw in Middle Eastern Fiction on top of that--like a cherry on top. A novel this versatile has a lot to offer to many readers but it also speaks to the complexity of the plotline and the depth of the storytelling. Khalid masterfully builds Agency Rules from the introduction of the politicians in the beginning, intricately weaving threads, to pull the most prominent players together with the most remote events and social maneuvering until a large theater is revealed, complete with villains and dark knights.

I don't quite understand what it is about mystery, suspense and the figures--whether it is in history or fiction--who have the ability to wield great power and yet walk in shadows and fade into obscurity that always seems somewhat compelling, and perhaps even seductive to me. Khalid's main character, Kamal Khan, begins the story as a very accomplished and decorated sniper. He is chosen to take on a delicate job and with that success he finds he is quickly advanced through ISI training and becomes an intelligence officer. His keen eye, wit and disposition make him particularly good at what he does. The sniper who once did his work from a distance, removed from the life he ended, is now excelling at terror tactics and accomplished at interrogation. He has become the weapon he no longer needs a sniper rifle.
