From the Publisher

The most riveting novel yet in Christopher Reich’s New York Times bestselling series—featuring Dr. Jonathan Ransom and his undercover-agent wife Emma, a dangerous woman with a mysterious past who has gone rogue in the high-stakes, serpentine world of international spies.

In 1980, a secret American B-52 crashes high in a remote mountain range on the Pakistan–Afghanistan border. Nearly thirty years later, and spanning locales from those peaks to New York City, a terrible truth will be revealed.

Jonathan Ransom returns as the resourceful doctor thrown into a shadowy world of double and triple agents where absolutely no one can be trusted. To stay alive, Ransom must unravel the mystery surrounding his wife—an enigmatic and lethal spy who plays by her own rules—and discover where her loyalties truly lie.

Rules of Betrayal is a masterfully plotted novel that cements Christopher Reich’s reputation as one of the most admired espionage thriller writers today.

MY THOUGHTS:

RULES OF BETRAYAL by Christopher Reich is a suspense/thriller set in modern day Afghanistan and USA. It is the third in the Jonathan Ransom series but can easily be read as a stand alone. It is well written with depth, details, twists and turns. It has suspense, international espionage, adventure, betrayal, complex, high tech terrorist plot and suprising climax. The characters are complex, intelligent, strong, devoted, one is an assasin, the other a Doctor. The secondary characters are just as complex and interesting.The hero, Jonathan, is a Doctor for Doctors Without Borders, he is trying to make amends for things he had done in his past. Emma, is Jonathan’s wife, a spy, an assasin who used her husband’s job to help accomplish her goals. Jonathan is thrusted into trying to locate a weapon of mass destruction,after Emma is kidnapped and betrayed.  If you enjoy espionage, suspense, thrillers, edge of your seat reading this is a book for you. This book was received for review and details can be found at Doubleday.
