From the New York Times bestselling author of The Day After Tomorrow and The Day of Confession comes an all new heart-pounding thriller The Los Angeles Police Department's famed 5-2 squad boards a commuter train in an attempt to take a cold-blooded killer into custody. John Barron, the newest and youngest member of the elite LAPD unit, learns quickly that the 5-2 has their own deadly system of justice, and that even the slightest protest will result in his suffering the same swift fate. Thus begins a dark, explosive struggle between good and evil-pitting Barron's squad against an exceedingly imaginative and brutal killer. Suddenly the game widens when John flees to London with his sister, Rebecca, and they are thrown into a race against time. Pursuing them is a baroness, beautiful and cruel, who will stop at nothing to protect her family, her fortune, and her global ambitions. Her secret-spanning oceans, continents, the collapse of the USSR, even the death of the Tsars-is a stunning revelation that could catapult her to the pinnacle of world power.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 2/20/2014

    " I read this one a year ago but still think about it at times. It is one of the best action/mystery/police chase books I've read and left me wishing for the movie. It is a bit graphically violent though, so if a movie came out, I would probably just end up covering my eyes a lot. Good story though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caleb J. | 2/19/2014

    " Starts out well and entertains but for me it fizzled out later in the book. Not as good as his priors. Still, 3 1/2 Stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lana | 2/7/2014

    " A real page turner! Hard to put down!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 1/30/2014

    " Excellent; too long tale of a cop who is promoted to a special unit that takes law into its own hands, and the fugitive they track who turns out to be a mass murderer in line to be the new Tsar of Russia "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie Stoll | 1/29/2014

    " This book is definitely a page turner! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brenda | 1/20/2014

    " This book is predictable, and Folsom goes from one event to a different one. The characters are well constructed, but the final is too abrupt "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celeste | 1/20/2014

    " I love the detailed plot and enjoyed reading it. I figured out one of the plot twists way too early so that was a little disappointing. Folsom needs to stay with plot strength and not try to create character depth-I do not think he does a good job in trying to give us reasons behind behavior. Also, the frequent use of "alright" is very annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 12/23/2013

    " Fast read, somewhat unbelievable, but entertaining through out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 12/22/2013

    " This was a good suspense novel taking place in L.A. and Europe. Could have been a tad shorter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 12/22/2013

    " A page turner! Excellent "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fred Gemeinhardt | 11/6/2013

    " I listening to this book on CD while commuting and parts/phrases were very repetitive. Otherwise it was a great suspense novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 10/19/2013

    " Very smart novel. Spans a number of geographic areas and they're all held together with an intelligent story and solid characters. Recommended. Also recommended, don't read the back of the book until you've finished the book. Actually I recommend this for just about all books. (c: "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rudi | 8/25/2013

    " Not the best Allan Folsom, but gripping as all his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy Morris | 8/21/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 5/29/2013

    " one of the best mystery novels I've read in a while. The Exile would make a great movie like the Bourne series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 2/4/2013

    " Slow! Hard time finishing this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry | 12/29/2012

    " A very long book, over 700 pages, but an outstanding read. The first in a series of at least three. Very exciting with many turns in the story. I really like Allan Folsom as an author. Recommend all three books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louella Mahabir | 5/31/2012

    " This one you won't be able to put down. Action action and more action. This was an absolute thrill! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzy | 3/23/2012

    " From the very first page, I was totally sucked into this thriller. It's full of twist and turns, and lots of intrigue spanning multiple continents....who could ask for anything more? Highly recommended for anyone who wants to get lost in a good book. "

    " Wow! This one was full of so much action and suspense that I couldn't put it down. At first the size was intimidating but I whipped through every action packed chapter quickly. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathleen | 7/2/2011

    " Wasn't able to concentrate on this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 6/6/2011

    " Ooooooooooooh! I just love a delicious story that I can't put down ( that doesn't happen a lot !) Whe you first pick it up, you think it's going to be just a typical " LA Cop catches murderer " plot, but the twists and turns are keeping me on my toes. Can't wait to see how it ends! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jonathan | 6/1/2010

    " What a bunch of junk. Wooden writing, cardboard characters and purple prose all led to me abandoning this doorstop after less than 300 pages. Coincidences abound, emotions explode and very little of it makes any sense.

    Guess I'm just not the mass market thriller type. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chuck | 4/1/2010

    " This giant novel (700 Pages) begins as a police, crime story and evolves
    into a global political thriller. It has a complicated, twisting plot but the epilogue wraps it up very nicely at the end.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jose | 2/19/2010

    " Tem sucessivos altos e baixos na acção, isto é, às vezes custa um bocado a ler e de seguida deixa-te preso...
    Destaco o facto da história girar, a partir de uma certa altura, à volta dos Romanov, um assunto que sempre me fascinou! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irene | 1/11/2010

    read all his books from cover to cover w/o any long breaks
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 7/15/2009

    " I enjoyed this book. I thought it was well written and for the most part kept the action and story moving along. There were several parts where the story seemed to bog down but those sections quickly disappeared.

    I am looking forward to reading his 2 other books. "
