"A taut political thriller that moves with speed and agility." Kirkus Indie Reviews.
"This is one roller coaster ride readers won't want to get off." Foreword Clarion Reviews.
"tightly plotted...If you are into Muslim conspiracy theories this is a particularly timely book...There is a scene from the 1973 Secretariat win at the Derby that is worth the price of admission." Bookreview.com
"I enjoyed this book as much as any Tom Clancy/Vince Flynn/Dan Brown/Ian Fleming novel." Amazon review.
Agent of Influence also made it to the second round of judging and was one of 2000 novels/manuscripts considered for the 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.
In 2003 the California recall election sparked an idea that turned Agent of Influence from a 50 page dead end to a full length thriller. Before there was a debate over a birth certificate there was Agent of Influence, the first novel from Russell Hamilton. A native of Louisville, KY, the book is an outgrowth of his travels, voracious reading habits, and fascination with history and foreign affairs.
