The international thriller soon to be a major motion
picture, from the producers of the James Bond film series,
starring Jude Law and Blake Lively.
Mark Burnell's riveting thriller The Rhythm Section
begins with the crash of flight NEO027. The crash destroys
Stephanie Patrick's life: her family was on board and there
were no survivors. Devastated, she drops out of college and
her life spins out of control as she enters a world of drugs
and prostitution--until a journalist discovers that the
crash wasn't an accident. There was a bomb planted on the
plane. Filled with rage, and with nothing left to loose, she
focuses on one goal: revenge.
The opportunity to obtain it arrives quickly when Stephanie
is approached and recruited by an extremely covert
intelligence organization. She is young, smart, and
beautiful--and has no family, making her the perfect
candidate. The organization offers her a deal. She must
undergo rigorous training; learn how to control her heart
rate and breathing ("the rhythm section"); and learn how to
efficiently use weapons. Then, she will assume a new
identity and commit acts of terrorism on behalf of the
organization. When she completes these assignments
successfully--and proves her loyalty--she will be offered
the opportunity to take out the terrorists who brought down
flight NEO027. She has nothing to lose.
As "Petra," a mercenary terrorist based out of Germany, and
as "Marina," an international businesswoman based in London,
she enters the brutal world of international espionage, and
adapts quickly. She is able to numb her feelings and act on
instinct alone. But as the stakes get higher, Stephanie
begins to question what her value really is. Is the
organization telling her the truth--do they know who caused
flight NEO027 to explode? Or are they using her for some
other agenda? More important: Is avenging her family worth
the price she is paying? And if it isn't--will the
organization that created her let her go?
