‘The Night Agent’ Becomes No. 9 Most Popular TV Show On Netflix

The thriller TV show “The Night Agent” has officially become one of Netflix‘s most popular series of all time (as of April 12, 2023). The show is based on a novel by New York Times Bestselling American novelist and journalist Matthew Quirk, which is also titled “The Night Agent”.

The Netflix show pulled in 130.48 million hours viewed and remained atop the English-language TV List for the week of April 3 to April 9. In the series, while monitoring an emergency line, an FBI agent answers a call that plunges him into a deadly conspiracy involving a mole at the White House.


About The Book

No one is more surprised than FBI Agent Peter Sutherland when he’s tapped to work in the White House Situation Room. When Peter was a boy, his father was suspected of selling secrets to the Russians—a breach that cost him his career, his reputation, and eventually his life. Now Peter’s job is monitoring an emergency line for a call that has not—and might never—come.

Until tonight.

At 1:05 A.M. the phone rings. A terrified young woman named Rose tells Peter that two people have just been murdered and that the killer might still be in the house with her. One of the victims gave her this phone number with urgent instructions: “Tell them OSPREY was right. It’s happening…”

The call thrusts Peter into the heart of a conspiracy years in the making, involving a Russian mole at the highest levels of the U.S. government. Anyone in the White House could be the traitor. Anyone could be corrupted. To save the nation, Peter must take the rules into his own hands, question everything, and trust no one.

The Night Agent marks the return of the classic conspiracy thriller, a Three Days of the Condor for today’s chaotic world. With incredible twists and heart-stopping action, this electrifying novel pulls back the curtain on Washington power and confirms Matthew Quirk as a new master of suspense.
