In the newest international thrill ride from New York Times bestselling author Ridley
Pearson, John Knox and Grace Chu, the incomparable and often incompatible duo,
team up again, this time in the exotic “city between two worlds,” Istanbul.
What’s it like to see
yourself in a picture you never knew was taken?
John Knox is an expert at surveillance and delicate,
international dealings. So he is understandably thrown when David “Sarge”
Dulwich, his contact at Rutherford Risk, hands him a photo of a transaction he
recently facilitated in the Middle East. More curious to him, he’s shown that
photo while in the Red Room, the private security company’s highly secure
underground bunker, where eavesdropping is impossible and privacy ensured. Why
all the cloak-and-dagger?
Knox is pressured into accepting a job as an art broker in
the mysterious Istanbul, a city situated on two continents where East meets
West and Islam meets Christianity. It is a melting pot of spies, terrorists,
and conflicting interests.
Teamed with smart, quick, and fearless Grace Chu, Knox must
navigate a murky operation, the only goal of which is to spend five minutes in
the proximity of a man they’ve never met. Why? What can it possibly matter? And
why are so many others bound and determined to see it never happens—at any
From sand storms in Jordan to thrilling chases through the
perilous old streets of Istanbul, Knox and Chu find themselves embroiled in
something they don’t understand and can’t walk away from. Like quicksand, the
more they struggle, the deeper they sink. As the truth of the situation takes
shape, the duo must decide which side they’re on, examine their own senses of
trust and loyalty, and make decisions that affect not just their own survival
but that of an entire region. Download and start listening now!
