Interview: Author ‘David Ricciardi’ Talks His Debut Spy Novel Warning Light

A keen outdoorsman, David Ricciardi incorporated many personal experiences into WARNING LIGHT. He’s backpacked through the mountains of the western United States and Alaska, received extensive training from law-enforcement and US special operations personnel, and once woke up for a 2 AM watch aboard a sailboat only to discover that it was headed the wrong way through the Atlantic sea lanes in heavy weather, with one of the crew suffering from hypothermia. In addition to being an avid sailor, David is also a certified scuba rescue diver and a former ski instructor. WARNING LIGHT is his first novel. Check him out on Twitter. His book is in stores on Tuesday, April 17.

WARNING LIGHT takes off with a bang, as a new covert operator by the name of Zac Miller enters the scene, literally flying under the radar on a job for the CIA. Zac finds himself amidst a mission gone wrong, and soon embarks on a globe-trotting epic in order to clear his own name and set the record straight before he can be captured by the Iranian government—or a litany of enemies he makes along the way to get back to his bosses and save his own skin. With a crafty, daring protagonist reminiscent of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne, and even Jack Bauer from 24, WARNING LIGHT grabs hold of readers and never lets go until the very last sentence.
