In what Publishers Weekly refers to as his sixth “un-put-downable” spy novel, bestelling author Christopher Reich's Rules of Deception takes readers on a trek through Europe by means of Reich's patented unexpected twists. What begins as a mountain climbing trip through the Swiss Alps ends up as something entirely different: surgeon Jonathan Ransom loses his wife to a blizzard when they get stuck on a mountaintop but on the next day, he receives an envelope addressed to his wife with two baggage claim tickets. Fueled by curiosity, Ransom ventures throughout Switzerland and beyond, desperately trying to uncover what he believes is his wife's hidden identity. Through encounters with Iranian spies and treks through top secret uranium enrichment facilities, Ransom finds himself running from a master assassin. "Rules of Deception is 100 percent based on what is going on today in the covert espionage world," Reich told Kirkus Reviews. "I decided to share my intrigue and fear and fascination about this world in a novel about someone on the outside peeling back the curtain and seeing for himself what’s really going on." Reich is a five-time bestselling author with books such as Numbered Account and The Runner. His previous novel, The Patriots Club, won the International Thrillers Writers award for Best Novel in 2006. He lives in Encinitas, California with his wife and two daughters.
