About The Directive:
Matthew Quirk studied history and literature at Harvard College. After graduation, he joined The Atlantic
and spent five years at the magazine reporting on a variety of subjects
including crime, private military contractors, the opium trade,
terrorism prosecutions, and international gangs. Quirk's first novel was
The 500, which is currently in development as a major motion picture. He lives in Washington, D.C.
Porter Hall has a nice life, but someone wants to destroy it. He is financially secure, though not rich by Manhattan standards, and as the single father of six-year-old twins his days are full, but routine.
Until he knows who wants to take him down, and why, he can't stop them. As he begins to dig, he realizes he is up against wealth and power, and even his best efforts may be futile.
