"A fascinating, fast-paced spy thriller for the modern age, equal parts techno-wizardry and old-school tradecraft, and featuring a terrorist plot that reads like its been ripped from the headlines, SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL is an exciting first entry in what's already a gripping intelligence saga."
Owen Laukkanen, New York Times bestselling author of THE PROFESSIONALS
Hard to put down the story line succeeds in large part because of the gritty and stylish narrative, the virtually nonstop action those looking for some top-shelf adrenaline-fueled escapism will be rewarded.”
Merges the brilliant old school spycraft of Charles Cumming and John le Carré with the technology and contemporary feel of Alex Berenson. The action is fast and furious in this hard-as-nails thriller but what sets it apart is McCauley’s grasp of how modern spy technology finds and tracks its targets. ”
(A) fast-paced spy thriller tautly written, tightly plotted...delivers action and suspense aplenty.”
"A fast-moving noir spy thriller...a fun read for fans of classic espionage." Kirkus Reviews
"I love a spy novel to be steeped in intrigue, where the shades of grey are myriad. I love a thriller to be action-packed and suspenseful. When a book comes along that delivers both, I'm stoked. Sympathy For The Devil delivers both in spades. A terrific book from a writer on the up and up."
Matt Hilton, bestselling author of the Joe Hunter thrillers
"Fans of Jack Bauer rejoice, your new hero just rode into town. Sympathy for the Devil by Terrence McCauley has enough gadgets to satisfy tech junkies and enough character to bring humanity to a story that is all too terrifying in its plausibility." Criminal Element
"Intense to the very end, Sympathy for the Devil is a 'must-read' for connoisseur of the genre."
The Midwest Book Review
"Terrence McCauley takes the grand old style of the classic masters of the genre, spits in its eye, then artfully polishes a sharp sheen onto his words with a modern sensibility. But the key to what he does so blisteringly well, is that he never loses respect what makes the classic style greatall the while doing so in a way that makes it wholly his own."
Todd Robinson, Anthony Award-nominated author of THE HARD BOUNCE
"I’ve always been a big fan of Terrence McCauley’s writing and with SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL he’s hit a home run. It’s thriller I read from cover to cover in one sitting. I look forward more adventures of James Hicks and his supporting cast of unforgettable characters.”
Jeffrey Siger, internationally bestselling Author of the Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis Series
"Make damn sure you read Terrence McCauley's SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL! James Hicks is a true hero for our puzzling and confusing times. He's a sinner who's a saintand the nature of his game is Losers Get Laid to Waste."
Tim O'Mara, author of the Raymond Donne novels
"An adrenaline-charged spy thriller...will appeal to readers fond of technology-enriched escapist fiction." The Rap Sheet

I have since read and enjoyed the other entries in the series.
James Hicks is the head of the New York office of “The University,” a secret intelligence organization that is everything you were afraid to think ever existed but knew does. Hicks uses the latest technology to find out what you are doing, what I am doing, and what everyone else is doing. He pries into everything from living rooms to terrorist organizations Along the way, Hicks and “The University” send the reader on a roller coaster ride of heart-stopping action, surveillance, and international espionage.
The characters are well developed and fit seamlessly into the technology-based story line. Page after page explode with action, conspiracy, and intrigue. This book is hard to put down except when you need to take a breath.
I can't wait for the sequel.
The story follows James Hicks who works for a shadow organization called the University, that is more powerful than the CIA, NSA and FBI.
This book is in line with great spy thrillers I have read like, Three Days of the Condor and the James Bond series but with fresh twists and modern day technology that never overpowers the characters.
I seriously couldn’t put it down, and didn’t realize it was after 4 am when I got to that last page!
