“Steve Martini ranks among the top authors of legal thrillers.”
“You like Law & Order? Or even a John Grisham novel? Well, Steve Martini is one of the best of the best when it comes to crime thrillers.”
—Asbury Park Press
The reasons why Steve Martini is one of the most popular thriller writers around are abundantly clear in Trader of Secrets: an ingenious plot, great characters, gripping storytelling that combines the legal expertise of John Lescroart, Brad Meltzer, and Scott Turow with the heart-pounding political intrigue of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor. Superstar crime novelist Linda Fairstein says, “Take it from a prosecutor—Steve Martini has created one of the most charismatic defense attorneys in thriller fiction,” referring to Martinis fearless yet very human series protagonist, defense attorney Paul Madriani. In Trader of Secrets the crusading lawyer is on the trail of dangerous criminals who are trying to steal state-of-the-art weapons technology…with nothing less than the future of America at stake.
Large Print Edition - Defense attorney Paul Madriani is on the trail of men who are using state-of-the-art weapons technology to blackmail a foreign power in this latest in the New York Times bestselling series.
Defense attorney Paul Madriani is embroiled in a case as perilous as any he has ever faced, one that involves an angry killer who will stop at nothing short of vengeance, and, the other, two missing NASA scientists who are holding secrets that a government desperately wants to purchase—in blood if they must.
Madrianis daughter narrowly evades the man known as Liquida, who has stalked her across the country. Meanwhile, in California, two men argue over millions in cash and a scheme involving government technology-for-sale that could rock the world.
Paul Madriani, his companion Joselyn Cole, and his law partner Harry Hinds begin to track Liquida and a missing scientist across the globe, and find themselves falling into a vortex of international terror. They must find the men before they can unleash a weapon of mass destruction that will set the world ablaze.
