When People’s Republic Flight 91 crashes in northeastern Ukraine with a U.S. diplomatic agent onboard, U.S. Diplomatic Security Service Agent Raisa Jordan is sent to investigate. The agent was escorting a prisoner home from Guangzhou, China, along with sensitive documents, and it quickly becomes apparent that the plane was intentionally downed. Was it to silence the two Americans onboard?
To avoid a diplomatic incident, Jordan must discover what the Americans knew that was worth killing hundreds to cover up. With Russia deeply entangled in the Ukraine and the possibility that China could be hiding reasons to bring down its own plane, tensions are high.
As international relations and even more lives hang in the balance, Jordan races to stop a new Cold War. Red Sky , Chris Goff's pulse-pounding follow-up to Dark Waters , is yet another white-knuckle joyride for fans of Gayle Lynds.

I would like to thank NetGalley for providing a copy of this book for review. When flight 91 from Guangzhou crashes in the Ukraine, Raisa Jordan, an agent with the US Diplomatic Security Service, is sent to investigate. Passengers on the flight included a DSS agent escorting a fugitive and carrying a letter containing sensitive information. Raise finds evidence that the plane was shot down and there is a further attack on the convoy carrying the agent's and fugitive's remains. When a lab report confirms that the remains are not those of the fugitive being returned to the US, Raisa is sent to China to track him down and find out what the letter contained. On her trail is a reporter who senses a big story. At first Raisa dodges him, but his military background proves an asset to her assignment. Chris Goff's story involves stolen technology, falsified identities, chase scenes and enough action to keep the reader glued to the pages. Her main character is resourceful and intelligent, yet hides a family secret that could end her career. For an edge of your seat thriller, it dos not get much better than Red Sky.
