About the Author
An award-winning novelist and reporter, Bill Granger began his literary career in 1979 with Code Name November (first published as The November Man), the book that became an international sensation and introduced the cool American spy who later gave rise to a whole series. His second novel, Public Murders, a Chicago police procedural, won the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America in 1981.
In all, Bill Granger published twenty-two novels, including thirteen in the November Man series, and three nonfiction books. His books have been translated into ten languages. He also wrote for the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, Newsday, Time, and The New Republic, contributing articles about crime, cops, politics, and covering such events as the race riots of the late 1960's and the 1968 Democratic Convention. Bill Granger passed away in 2012.

Good read, introduced me to the author, and am enjoying the series.
The seventh book was originally titled "There are no Spies", but is now re-titled "The November Man" to match the movie.
The first book has now been renamed "Codename November" but was originally titled "The November Man" just to confuse everyone.
So if you want to read the 7th book, the one that is the basis for the movie - Buy this book.
If you want to start at the 1st, buy Codename November.
Now to this novel. The November Man introduces the idea of a separate US intelligence agency set up to keep an eye on the excesses of the CIA. It is buried under the Department of Agriculture's Budget in Schedule R (hence the agency's "name"). Devereaux, who was an agent in Vietnam and other areas of Southeast Asia, is brought into an assignment in Belfast and becomes in a complex web of spy-counterspy-terrorists among Section R, the CIA and the Irish Republican Army. In order to live to the end of the book, he has to sort out who is doing what with whom and why. He meets up with CIA operatives who are doing the "right thing for the wrong reason', others who are doing the 'wrong thing' to feather their own nests and those who are deliberately shuffling the players around for so-called international stability.
If you're looking for a series with a complex narrative based on real life situations this is one of the best American series ever.
