Years later, a condemned murderer, who claims he was abandoned by the CIA, and who starred in an early episode of Bullseye, is finally executed for killing two supposed Soviet spies back in the 1970’s.
Jake Boxer, still trying to piece his life back together, is on his honeymoon in a posh ski resort in the Alaskan mountains when he gets word of the inmate’s execution . . . and the old killer’s final words: “The good spy dies twice.”
Those five words, seemingly meant for Jake, draw the ex-reporter from his forced retirement and into a complex and deadly global conspiracy involving his newlywed wife, the secretive New World Order, and the hotel’s hundred or so “guests.”
Everyone is a suspect.
Described as James Bond in a Stephen King novel, THE GOOD SPY DIES TWICE is the explosive first book in the Bullseye Series. Part spy thriller, part whodunit, this fast-paced novel introduces an exciting new hero, the intrepid, conspiratorial journalist, Jake Boxer.

What did you love best about The Good Spy Dies Twice?
The Good Spy Dies Twice was a riveting spy novel, perfect for the conspiracy theorists. I was hook on page one. The author weaves a fantastic tale of global espionage. Every one has a secret and no one is whom they appear in this story I was glued to the story and shocked by the outcome.
My favorite character was the MC, Jake Boxer. He is like a dog with a bone when he gets on the trail of a story. Pure genius!
Have you listened to any of Mark Hosack’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not listened to any other of Mark Hosack's performances but I am definitely adding him to my list. Mark did a wonderful job with narrating the story. The added sound effects and music interludes at the being of each chapter was a unique aspect and set the tone of the chapter.
