Overview

The thrilling follow-up to Alpha continues the Jad Bell series from New York Times bestselling author Greg Rucka.
Still recovering from traumas both physical and emotional, Jad Bell is tasked with bringing in the Uzbek, principal organizer of the terrorist attack that nearly cost Bell his ex-wife and daughter. But the Uzbek's just the beginning: his employer, the Architect, has already set in motion another, even more devastating attack.

At the center of it all are two women under deep cover. One, as beautiful as she is deadly, has just been dispatched on American soil to execute the Architect's deadly plans. The other is an American just emerging from a complex web of lies, whose intel may be the only hope Bell has to stop the assault before it begins. But after years of pretending to be somebody else, can she be trusted?

Publishers Weekly
05/12/2014
Former Special Forces Master Sgt. Jad Bell must try to thwart a threatened terrorist attack on the U.S. in bestseller Rucka’s explosive follow-up to Alpha (2012). The capture of Vosil Tohir (aka the Uzbek), who was the main organizer of the terrorist assault on the California theme park in the previous book, offers Bell some hope. Chief Warrant Officer Petra Nessuno—known to the Uzbek as Elisabetta Villanova, a sexy art dealer with a flair for languages—teams with Bell to crack Tohir and learn more about the terrorists’ plans. Trouble is, the Uzbek isn’t the highest rung of the ladder; he’s merely one bad guy on a list of increasingly shady characters that eventually leads to the man in charge, a mysterious, nationless presence known only as the Architect. Rucka never shies away from violence, but his bloody mayhem serves to underscore an impressively complex plot. Agent: David Hale, DHS Literary. (July)
From the Publisher
"Explosive...Rucka's bloody mayhem serves to underscore an impressively complex plot."—Publishers Weekly"

A solid, satisfying thriller from an always-dependable writer . . . This fast-paced actioner should appeal to fans of the author's Atticus Kodiak and Tara Chace series; it has the same energetic feel to it."—Booklist

PRAISE FOR ALPHA:"

Alpha is hands down, the most exciting, adrenaline-pumping, butt-kicking novel I've read in years. Rucka is the real deal. If this one doesn't make you stay up late rooting for the good guys, you don't have a heartbeat. Highly recommended!"—Christopher Reich, New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Deception and Numbered Account"

Read Greg Rucka. It's that simple. Open one of his books and what you've got is a fistful of dynamite."—The Cincinnati Enquirer
