Enhance your purchase
From the #1 Amazon Charts bestselling author of Beneath a Scarlet Sky
As a CIA operative, Robin Monarch was the US government's most valuable asset. Nowadays, as a rogue international thief, he answers to only himself. So when Monarch finds himself in the darkest recesses of the Amazon jungle - very much against his own wishes - he is on unfamiliar terrain in more ways than one.
THE PRIZE HE MUST STEAL.
Deep within the Brazilian rainforest lies a secret of incalculable value to mankind. Robin Monarch must locate and extract this enigmatic treasure: not for greed or gain, but because a life, that of the woman dearest to him, is at stake.
THE PERSON HE MUST SAVE.
Sister Rachel Diego del Mar, the missionary who saved Monarch's life when he was a homeless orphan, has been kidnapped by a vengeful past adversary. If Monarch does not give his enemy the Amazon's secret, they will take her life.
Unaccustomed to failure, and unprepared to let his nemesis prevail, Monarch has vowed to deliver - first the coveted prize, then his full, uncompromising retribution.

It is, however, not a perfect book. The first problem is that the writing seems more hackneyed and formulaic than in his other novels. The second is his jaw-dropping mis-characterization of the geography of Buenos Aires. He repeatedly makes it a city surrounded by mountains and creates major scenes in these mountains! Anyone with a clue knows that the city is entirely flat and surrounded for very long distances in every direction by flat land (or water). Has he confused it with Rio de Janeiro or Santiago, Chile? It's equivalent to setting scenes in the "mountains" around, say, Miami. Such bad research undermines the credibility of the writing.
Robin Monarch is no angel, a thief with a history that makes him a really rich, interesting character. He is surrounded with friends that sometimes jump off the pages as well. The stories are thrillers that will keep you on the edge of your seat. This latest book is no exception. At first I kind of thought the story was a little ...odd maybe, not sure where it was going. But I kept reading, got hooked, sat back and enjoyed the ride.
I found Mr. Sullivan through a book he co-wrote with James Patterson. I had kind of given up on James Patterson, but when he started co-writing, I decided to check the authors out. I am so glad I did, I have discovered writers new to me. Mr. Sullivan is one of those, and it has been a good find.
I look forward to the next Robin Monarch book and if you have not read the others in the series, I think there is enough back story that you would enjoy this one. I promise though, you will want to go back and catch up on the others.
