CIA operative Nick Reagan is on the case as he follows the leads on a pending terrorist attack that takes him from New York, to Pakistan, and back to the U.S. in Las Vegas as he and a partner race to stop another 9/11 in the heartland.

“When the CIA uncovers details of violent assaults planned throughout the United States, clandestine CIA operative Nicholas Reagan and his partner, Carol Gellos, are assigned to prevent them—traveling across the world as they confront long odds and danger along the way,” the synopsis at Amazon reads.

The globe-trotting adventure has already received several positive reviews.


“THE HANDLER is a heart-pounding ride with great narratives and interesting people and places. It’s got it all – spies, assassins, guns, and terrorist cells… If you liked Vince Flynn novels, you would love Stephens’s super cool CIA operative Nick Reagan,” wrote


“The Handler: A Nick Reagan Thriller by Jeffrey S. Stephens is not your regular crime thriller. It has a unique plot, and the way the story played out was incredible. 4 out of 4 stars!” said


“Nick Reagan is a great new character who risks everything to stand on the frontlines, protecting America at a time when we need him most. Think Jason Bourne for the new millennium—Jeffrey Stephens’ new series is one to watch moving forward,” added The Real Book Spy.


And here at, James Lowe wrote: “Jeffery S. Stephens, author of The Handler: A Nick Reagan Thriller is a master of intrigue and espionage. Stephen’s novel is so in sync with today’s war on terrorism that the author had to include a disclaimer that “most of the details are sheer fabrication.” Details of terrorist intrigue and attacks are the product of his imagination and “have nothing to do with reality.” But – reader beware. Compare the plot to what is happening in the daily news, and you might end up wondering if he is also a fortune teller. Or, a deeply sourced and informed master storyteller.”

Author Jeffrey S. Stephens is a successful attorney in private practice, admitted in both New York and Connecticut. He has lived for more than thirty years in Greenwich, New York, where he and his wife, Nancy, raised their two sons.

Stephens is the author of the Jordan Sandor thrillers, Targets of Deception, Targets of Opportunity, Targets of Revenge, and Rogue Mission, as well as the Anthony Walker murder mystery Crimes and Passion and the Pencraft First Place Award–winning novel, Fool’s Errand.

The hard cover of THE HANDLER was released by Post Hill Press on August 30th, Kindle version is also available at Amazon.
