Traitor is the twenty-seventh in David Hagberg's action-driven, over-the-top spy thrillers starring legendary operative Kirk McGarvey. Mac is now married to Pete Boylan, who is at least as tough as he is. They are very close to computer whiz Otto. He and his wife Mary have adopted Mac's granddaughter Audie. Many close to Mac have died earlier in this series.

As this episode opens, Otto, who works closely with AI Lou (designed to have his first wife Louise's personality and voice), is arrested for treason. Fortunately, he has Mac, Pete and Mary on his side - and Lou of course. After a Russian assassination attempt on him fails, Mac heads to Moscow, while Pete investigates in Washington, while doing her best to protect Otto, and to find the real mole.

As expected in a Hagberg thriller, the action is constant and deadly, and the conclusion is a shocker. This episode ends on a change of focus for our heroes. I look forward to their next exploits.
