This fast-paced adventure has a well-constructed plot with many surprising twists. The stakes are high and realistic enough to make the events plausible. The good guys are comprised of a group of government agents and a second group of private vigilantes who bring justice to war criminals around the globe. The evil Evan Waller makes a chilling antagonist.

Evan Waller is a former Soviet Army commander who committed atrocities in Ukraine. He secretly continues his sadistic dealings and uses his legitimate business to cover his tracks. When Waller for once leaves himself exposed, both the undercover agents and the vigilante group that are pursuing him descend on a quiet Provence town to catch him. The double-sided mission and Waller's cunning keep the reader in suspense right to the end. (GRAND CENTRAL, Apr., 416 pp., $27.99)
