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. "From the Hardcover edition."show more

Our customer reviews

Rules of Betrayal had me wondering how much of this was based on what really went on. There were plenty of elaborate and seemingly crazy spy moments, but somehow the amount of detail and the strange twists seemed like they must have been based on careful research. The book reads as though it could easily be transformed into a high octane movie -- the sort that I'd try to catch on opening weekend. As the skilled surgeon Jonathan Ransom is trying to atone for the violence during his marriage to secret agent Emma Ransom, he finds that much of his old life has followed him into his new one. And a well crafted plea for help leads Ransom to attempt what would have been nearly impossible for a professional. Ransom turns out to be a natural -- the skills and training that made him a world class surgeon carry over to his undercover work. Ransom must penetrate the defenses of an international arms dealer and a powerful terrorist with very limitless resources. Training, luck and some unexpected allies turn Ransom into a formidable opponent - and make Rules of Betrayal a fast-paced and memorable thriller!
