Romance Suspense | Thriller

VENDETTA, Iris Johansen's fifth book in the Catherine Ling series, starts in the jungle with a frantic race to save the life of a young girl and thrusts its way across the globe to answer a threat from the inheritor of an evil empire.

Although this is fifth in the Ling series, it can be read as a stand-alone book with absolutely no problem. The back story of Catherine and Cameron is covered well with no detraction from the intricate, action- driven plot.

Johansen has created fascinating characters on both sides of the moral line. Her complex but captivating plotting brings readers along for an exciting ride.

If you love romantic suspense you are in for a genuine treat.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen comes a new explosive, compelling thriller.

With his dying breath, Carl Venable, head of the CIA task force on terrorism and Jude Brandon’s final link to terrorist ringleader Max Huber, gives Brandon a mandate: keep his daughter, Rachel, safe at any cost. But Rachel Venable has a shocking, twisted past of her own, one that comes rushing back after her medical clinic in Guyana is attacked by Huber—the same man who murdered her father and kept her imprisoned for months. Brandon and Catherine Ling, Rachel’s longtime ally and fierce protector, are determined to keep Rachel out of danger, but she knows that it’s impossible to stay hidden when Max Huber wants you dead.

As Rachel and Brandon race against the clock to bring Huber down before he can orchestrate a disaster that will lay waste to half the country, they also fight a growing attraction to each other – an attraction that could prove just as dangerous as Huber himself.

In this gripping, fast-paced novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen, one thing is clear: everyone has a vendetta, and no one will rest until they get their revenge.
