Months after foiling an attack on a commercial jetliner, Doctors Without Borders physician Jonathan Ransom is working under an assumed name in a remote corner of Africa while his wife, Emma, desperate to escape the wrath of Division, the secret American intelligence agency she betrayed, has vanished into the netherworld of international espionage. Both look forward to sharing a stolen weekend in London—until an ambush on a convoy of limousines turns their romantic rendezvous into a terrorist bloodbath. 
In the aftermath, Emma disappears and Jonathan is apprehended by the police and threatened with life imprisonment unless he helps secure his wife’s capture. Faced with an impossible decision, Jonathan makes a daring escape. On the run, herealizes that his only option is to become a spy himself in order to track down Emma and discover the true nature of the conspiracy she appears to be masterminding. In the process, Jonathan begins to realize that all along he’s been a pawn in a high-stakes game of international intrigue and one-upsmanship far beyond his imagining.

Quotes & Awards

  • Advance rave for Rules of Vengeance by Christopher Reich
  • Near the start of bestseller Reich's stellar sequel to Rules of Deception, Dr. Jonathan Ransom flies from Africa to London for a medical conference. That same day, intermediaries arrange for him to meet his fugitive wife, Emma, once a secret agent with the Pentagon group known as Division, in a cheap hotel. The next day, Jonathan's world is literally and figuratively torn apart after a large car bomb explodes in Westminster, seriously injuring the Russian interior minister. Jonathan is sure Emma is behind the car bombing, but the police, led by Det. Chief Insp. Kate Ford, think Jonathan is responsible. Thus begins a convoluted chase–Jonathan hunting his wife, Kate and the cops along with MI5 agent Colonel Graves tracking Jonathan. Everyone, including the reader, remains clueless, except for master spy Emma, as to who is really the guilty party. A blinding twist at the end adds a spectacular fillip to a masterful performance by one of the genre's elite.

    " Intriguing story I enjoyed the open ended ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Meredith | 2/17/2014

    " A sequel to Rules of Deception with an open ending suggesting that there will be more to come in this series. There are so many double-crosses, triple-crosses and quadruple crosses in this book that I still can't figure out who are the bad guys and who is working for whom. Fast-paced, well-drawn characters. Liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kurt Young | 2/12/2014

    " Follow up story is not quite as good as the first. The non-spy main character suddenly starts acting like James Bond. Too many misdirections from the author make this a bit messy. Still worth reading though, for the focus on the new law-enforcement character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Lee | 1/27/2014
