Join us in Palo Alto for a spy-noir night with investigative journalist and award-winning author Paul McHugh sharing his new thriller, The Blind Pool. A Russian crime ring scores entry to the USA by joining thieves who use a Texas prison as their base. Agents seeking to investigate get betrayed by a mole in the FBI. Stakes reach life-or-death as the agents and their women are kidnapped by the gang. Achieving escape and vengeance stretch their tradecraft and loyalties far past a breaking point.
