"CIA operative Todd Van Buren meets with a Washington Post investigative reporter who has uncovered strong evidence that a powerful lobbyist has formed a shadowy group called the Friday Club. The cabal's members include high-ranking men inside the government: a White House advisor, a three star general at the Pentagon, deputy secretaries at the State Department, Homeland Security, the FBI, and even the CIA. The reporter is convinced that the Friday Club is powerful enough to potentially topple the United States government ... and he's terrified of what he knows. That afternoon, Van Buren--son-in-law to the legendary spy Kirk McGarvey--is gunned down. That evening, the reporter and his family are killed. All traces of the existence of the Friday Club are erased. A devastated McGarvey is soon drawn into the most far-reaching and dangerous investigation of his career, the stakes of which could destabilize the United States government, and shake the foundations of the world financial order."--Dust cover flap

The CIA is on edge. All signs indicate that something is coming at the United States. Perhaps another 9/11, maybe bigger. The body of CIA agent Louis Updegraf ends up on the steps of the US Embassy in Mexico. His last operation was to tap into the communications of the Chinese Embassy, but there is no record of why. He appeared to be freelancing and the Agency must scramble to get a clue as to what he was after. Kirk McGarvey, serving as a visiting professor at the University of Florida, is once again longing for the action of the field. So when his old friend Otto Rencke asks him to help figure out the connection between China and the murdered agent, it takes almost no effort to get McGarvey up and running. The only informant they can find is an enigmatic Iranian belly dancer--the dark and lovely Shahrzad Shadmand. But her story changes with the wind, and her knowledge of McGarvey's past is uncanny. Kirk McGarvey must unravel her shattered mind to get to something that might resemble the truth

Mutiny : the true events that inspired The hunt for Red October by David Hagberg( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... The inspiration for that novel came from an obscure report by a US naval officer of a mutiny aboard a Soviet warship in the Baltic Sea. The Hunt for Red October actually happened, and Boris Gindin lived through every minute of it ... It was the fall of 1975, and the tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States were climbing. It seemed the two nations were headed for thermonuclear war, and it was that fear that caused most of the crewman of the FFG Storozhevoy to mutiny. Their goal was to send a message to the Soviet people that the Communist government was corrupt and major changes were needed. That message never reached a single person. Within hours the orders came from on high to destroy the Storozhevoy and its crew members. And this would have happened if it weren't for Gindin and few others whose heroism saved many lives ... From the danger aboard the ship to the threats of death from the KGB to the fear that forced him to flee the Soviet Union for the United States, Mutiny ... offers an eye-opening look at the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War."--Publisher description
