Simon Kovalic, top intelligence operative for the Commonwealth of Independent Systems, is on the frontline of the burgeoning Cold War with the aggressive Illyrican Empire. He barely escapes his latest mission with a broken arm, and vital intel which points to the Empire cozying up to the Bayern Corporation: a planet-sized bank. There’s no time to waste, but with Kovalic out of action, his undercover team is handed over to his ex-wife, Lt Commander Natalie Taylor. When Kovalic’s boss is tipped off that the Imperium are ready and waiting, it’s up to the wounded spy to rescue his team and complete the mission before they’re all caught and executed.

“Swap out the old Soviet Union for the Illyrican Empire, the Bayern Corporation for Spectre, and Simon Kovalic’s KO gun for Bond’s trusty Walther PPK and you’ve got yourself one of the most entertaining genre mashups within an astronomical unit.”
– Publishers Weekly

“A twist-laden caper of intrigue and improv filled with dark humour and, uh, surprisingly engaging galactic economics.”
– Antony Johnston, creator of Atomic Blonde and The Exphoria Code

The Bayern Agenda is exactly the dose of intergalactic espionage you need. Action, humor, and pathos, wrapped up in a plot that Le Carré would be proud of … Moren is one to watch.”
– Eric Scott Fischl, Author of Dr. Potter’s Medicine Show

PRAISE FOR DAN MOREN

“Hypercool. It’s like the Golden Age of sci-fi got an upgrade, with all the big honking space cannons and some desert planet dry humour thrown in for the bargain.”
– John Birmingham, author of the Axis of Time series

“Highly recommended, snarky sci-fi adventure.”
– Joe Zieja, author of Mechanical Failure

“A wisecracking caper that nevertheless doesn’t skimp on the details and human cost of interstellar war, like John Le Carré meets The Stainless Steel Rat. Moren is one to watch.”
– Antony Johnston, creator of Atomic Blonde and The Coldest Winter

“Immersive, intergalactic spy-fi. Moren gives us a Cold War thriller with wormholes and anti-grav fields.”
– John August, screenwriter of Titan A.E. and Big Fish

“The action scenes, both on the ground and in space, show a focus on thoughtful planning and careful pacing. The characterization delves just enough into emotionality to give the characters realism without moving the focus away from fights, intrigue, and spycraft.”
– Publishers Weekly

“A great spy story, with tidbits of science explaining the intergalactic travel and even a hint of romance to come.”
– Booklist
