While reading this book one has to return to previous pages in order to keep the characters straight, but it's worth it. This book was not only well written but provides the reader with twists and turns that are completely unexpected. Christopher Reich makes you feel like you are there with the characters. The storyline is fascinating and his knowledge of Swiss banking and Clandestine Agencies is remarkable. This author did his homework. RULES OF VENGEANCE, which is now out,is not as fascinating, a bit easier to predict the outcome, but it certainly allows the characters to come full circle. I loved the first book, but perhaps reading them back to back was not a very wise choice on my part. However, the second is a great read.

If you enjoy international espionage thrillers like me, then you might enjoy it. I just found the plot and the characters,specially the villains, so familiar now and yet so unrealistic..but all of them are. I've read other Christopher Reich's novels and this is not the best for me.

    Rules of Deception

    This book was a hand-me-down from my husband. The cover was not exactly appealing. But it proved to me again.....don't judge a book by its cover. When I first began to read, I thought it was going to be a romantic story (and it was), just not like I expected. The characters drew me into the plot, and I found it difficult to put down. There ended up being two days of "get your own dinner" and it was intriguing on the twists and turns, right to a thrilling conclusion. I had never read Reich's works before, and now I am looking for past and future stories written by him. If they are written half as well as Rules of Deception, all I can say, a MUST READ!

    Do not waste your time reading this Book

    Think that the plot, characters, and the dialogue are all beyond any credibility or imagination come to that ! Reichs must have been behind his commitment for a new book !
