Overview

A vicious murder at sea begins a series of deadly events stretching from Europe to the Middle East and Africa. International conspirators plot to send a shipment of goods to an undisclosed destination, and they will stop at nothing to achieve their ends. A concealed world of deceit and lies is populated by an international assassin, a brutal ship's captain, criminal businessmen, rogue scientists, and ruthless government representatives. Standing in their paths is Bavarian Kommissar of Police Franz Waldbaer, assisted by a team of CIA operational specialists and a capable, if prickly, female Austrian police official. The stakes are high and the time is limited to prevent an incident with major international implications. From the alpine peaks of Germany to the alley ways of Azerbaijan, from CIA headquarters in Virginia to the sweep of the North Atlantic, the pace is furious as malevolent and murderous players do all within their power to defeat the forces of order arrayed against them.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Le Beau’s so-so second contemporary thriller featuring U.S. intelligence operative Robert Hirter and German kommissar Franz Waldbaer (after 2009’s Collision of Evil), the rise of radical right-wing Austrian politician Georg Forster, who’s led his Nationalist Defense Front Party from obscurity to a role in Austria’s new coalition government, ends abruptly when he dies in a car crash in Bavaria. After Forster’s successor makes the incendiary claim that the car accident was in fact a hit orchestrated by the Israelis, the Germans open a homicide investigation. Waldbaer, assigned the case in part because he happened to be traveling in the crash area at the time, reaches out to Hirter, now assigned to counterproliferation, for whatever the CIA has on Forster. Le Beau, despite his 25 years in the CIA, fails to make the little details convincing. A predictable plot doesn’t help. (Mar.)
