Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A riveting sequel to the New York Times bestseller Rules of Deception that confirms Christopher Reich as the master of the espionage thriller.

Months after foiling an attack on a commercial jetliner, Doctors Without Borders physician Jonathan Ransom is working under an assumed name in a remote corner of Africa while his wife, Emma, desperate to escape the wrath of Division, the secret American intelligence agency she betrayed, has vanished into the netherworld of international espionage. Both look forward to sharing a stolen weekend in London—until an ambush on a convoy of limousines turns their romantic rendezvous into a terrorist bloodbath.

In the aftermath, Emma disappears and Jonathan is apprehended by the police and threatened with life imprisonment unless he helps secure his wifes capture. Faced with an impossible decision, Jonathan makes a daring escape. On the run, herealizes that his only option is to become a spy himself in order to track down Emma and discover the true nature of the conspiracy she appears to be masterminding. In the process, Jonathan begins to realize that all along hes been a pawn in a high-stakes game of international intrigue and one-upsmanship far beyond his imagining.

Synopsis:

When Jonathan comes to London to meet Emma for a stolen weekend together, it is the first chance they've had to see each other since the Israeli jet episode. Their passion for each other is undiminished, but their future together is still uncertain. Emma is evasive about her current plans, so Jonathan manages to follow her--all the way to the lethal ambush of an unannounced convoy of limousines carrying Russian Defense Minister Igor Ivanov. When the violence subsides, Ivanov is hospitalized in critical condition,

Emma is missing, and Jonathan is apprehended for what authorities take to be his role in the attack.

With the intensity of a Frederick Forsyth or Robert Ludlum novel and hinging on a credible and all-too-plausible plot involving Russian oil interests versus European reliance on nuclear power, RULES OF VENGEANCE confirms Reich as the

master of the espionage thriller for the 21st century.
