The thrilling follow-up to Alpha continues the Jad Bell series from New York Times bestselling author Greg Rucka.
Still recovering from traumas both physical and emotional, Jad Bell is tasked with bringing in the Uzbek, principal organizer of the terrorist attack that nearly cost Bell his ex-wife and daughter. But the Uzbek’s just the beginning: his employer, the Architect, has already set in motion another, even more devastating attack.
At the center of it all are two women under deep cover. One, as beautiful as she is deadly, has just been dispatched on American soil to execute the Architect’s deadly plans. The other is an American just emerging from a complex web of lies, whose intel may be the only hope Bell has to stop the assault before it begins. But after years of pretending to be somebody else, can she be trusted?
Greg Rucka is the New York Times bestselling author of almost two dozen novels, including the Atticus Kodiak and Tara Chace series, and has won multiple Eisner awards for his graphic novels. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife and children.
“Explosive…Rucka’s bloody mayhem serves to underscore an impressively complex plot.” —Publishers Weekly
“A solid, satisfying thriller from an always-dependable writer . . . This fast-paced actioner should appeal to fans of the author’s Atticus Kodiak and Tara Chace series; it has the same energetic feel to it.” —Booklist
