The Bayern Agenda
When the Illyrican Empire takes an interest in the galaxy’s biggest bank, a team of Commonwealth covert operatives tries to stop a cold war from turning hot.
Simon Kovalic, top intelligence operative for the Commonwealth of Independent Systems, is on the frontline of the burgeoning Cold War with the aggressive Illyrican Empire. He barely escapes his latest mission with a broken arm, and vital intel which points to the Illyricans cozying up to the Bayern Corporation: a planet-sized bank.
There’s no time to waste, but with Kovalic out of action, his undercover team is handed over to his ex-wife, Lt Commander Natalie Taylor. When Kovalic’s boss is tipped off that the Imperium are ready and waiting, it’s up to the wounded spy to rescue his team and complete the mission before they’re all caught and executed.
Praise for Dan Moren
“A wisecracking caper that nevertheless doesn’t skimp on the details and human cost of interstellar war, like John Le Carré meets The Stainless Steel Rat. Moren is one to watch.”
—Antony Johnston, creator of Atomic Blonde and The Coldest Winter
“…the action scenes, both on the ground and in space, show a focus on thoughtful planning and careful pacing. The characterization delves just enough into emotionality to give the characters realism without moving the focus away from fights, intrigue, and spycraft.”
“Immersive, intergalactic spy-fi. Moren gives us a Cold War thriller with wormholes and anti-grav fields.”
—John August, screenwriter of Titan A.E. and Big Fish
“…a great spy story, with tidbits of science explaining the intergalactic travel and even a hint of romance to come.”
“Hypercool. It’s like the Golden Age of sci-fi got an upgrade, with all the big honking space cannons and some desert planet dry humour thrown in for the bargain.”
—John Birmingham, author of the Axis of Time series
“…highly recommended, snarky sci-fi adventure.”
—Joe Zieja, author of Mechanical Failure
