Overview

In the lightning-paced sequel to The Icon Thief, Europe’s turbulent past and terrifying future are set to collide in the streets and prisons of London—and beyond.

Rachel Wolfe, a gifted FBI agent assigned to a major investigation overseas, discovers that a notorious gun runner has been murdered at his home in London, his body set on fire. When a second victim is found under identical circumstances, the ensuing chase plunges Wolfe and her colleagues into a breathless race across Europe, a secret war between two ruthless intelligence factions, and a hunt for a remorseless killer with a deadly appointment in Helsinki.

At the heart of the mystery lies one of the strangest unsolved incidents in the history of Russia—the unexplained death of nine mountaineers in the Dyatlov Pass five decades before.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Nevala-Lee’s stylish follow-up to his debut, The Icon Thief, introduces Mormon FBI agent Rachel Wolfe, who’s come to London to work with the British police at the request of Alan Powell of the Serious Organized Crime Agency, who appeared in the first book. At a crime scene in Stoke Newington, a garage flat where a local gunrunner lies in a bathtub shot in the head and burned to a crisp by an unusual combination of chemicals, Rachel reconnects with Alan, who guides her in this case and subsequent related killings. Another party interested in the gunrunner’s murder is Rachel and Alan’s former nemesis, Ilya Severin (aka the Scythian), whom they capture and imprison. Rachel’s questioning of the Scythian à la Clarice Starling brings them to the very heart of the case, the real-life mysterious deaths of nine mountaineers in Russia’s Dyatlov Pass in 1959. Readers will look forward to seeing more of the intrepid Rachel in the trilogy’s third volume. Agent: David Halpern, the Robbins Office. (Dec.)

    Fast read because it's so good

    Not unlike Nevala-Lee's first novel, this one captures you instantly, moves swiftly yet elegantly, and leaves you wanting more. Great read!
