The brilliant new Micah Dalton thriller from the New York Times bestselling author.
In Vienna for a top-secret meeting with ex-Mossad agent Issadore Galan, Micah Dalton senses that something is very wrong on the streets of the Ring District. Dalton's aggressive response to enemy surveillance makes him the target of a complex plot with the potential to shatter America's strategic alliances with the rest of the civilized world. Planned by an unknown foreign power and executed by a scarred Serbian killer known only as Smoke, the conspiracy pits Dalton against an ultrasecret U.S. agency and a cadre of trained KGB killers. In a blistering trajectory of events that takes him from Venice to the Balkans and the barren shoreline of North Africa, Dalton pushes himself to the edge of sanity in a desperate attempt to save his honor-and his life.
Bestseller Stone's entertaining fourth thriller featuring Micah Dalton (after The Venetian Judgment) takes the CIA "cleaner" (an operative who cleans up the mess after an agency mission has gone awry) to Vienna, where Micah finds himself being followed by a team of agents of unknown origin. In short order, Micah captures one of his pursuers, Veronika Miklas; beds her; fights off an attack by two killers; and goes on the lam, with Veronika voluntarily joining him. Soon everyone wants Micah dead, including his own CIA handlers. An old buddy, Ray Fyke, who's "exactly what Micah Dalton needs" despite Ray's reputation as a crazed killer and a drunk, joins Micah and Veronika on a body-strewn rampage through Europe in an effort to learn why Micah has become a marked man. While the nearly nonstop action and the consistently interesting lead character will keep readers turning the pages, a limp ending disappoints. (May) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
