Austgen believes “perfect characters are boring,” and the main character in his debut novel is far from perfect. FBI agent Evelyn Morgan’s job is to find the original sources of funding for a terrorist cell operating in a suburb of Washington, D.C. When the cell is lost and agents start dying, she doesn’t know who to trust. Austgen stays true to his principles, as the other characters in this thriller set in Washington, D.C., and Woodland Park, Colo., are imperfect but interesting.
