While David’s debut novel Operator follows the tension between the protagonist’s current job as an intelligence analyst and his former identity as an Army Operator, his new book Binder is considered more of a classic thriller. We now follow the rehabilitated Michael Herne to Appalachia where he helps track down the daughter of an Army Colonel who was thought to be involved with a group of environmental radicals.
Like his protagonist, David is a former intelligence analyst. He now teaches a master’s level course on branding at NYU and writes a column for Forbes.com. I’m excited to see some of the secret places David writes about in Operator and Binder come to life on Placing Literature.
