Rating: You Gotta To Read
Washington D.C.'s professional troubleshooter, Hannibal Jones, is enraged when he is forced to take a case at gunpoint. His client is a Russian assassin who will kill Hannibal's beloved, Cindy Santiago, if Hannibal refuses to help him. With no choice, Hannibal agrees to investigate the smooth, wealthy Algerian who has stolen the heart of the woman his new client loves.
At first the case looks simple - what woman would not choose a rich African businessman over a professional killer? His view changes when evidence surfaces connecting the Algerian to Russian mob money and the apparent suicide of the girl's father several years earlier. Further investigation reveals that the Algerian may not be who he says he is. Then more deaths follow, closing in on the Algerian and the girl. At first working only to protect Cindy's life, Hannibal is soon chasing the truth for its own sake and must fight his way through past lies, present jealousies and the Red Mafiya to learn the real reason that death is stalking the couple.
Hannibal peels the Algerian's history like an onion, each layer revealing a false identity. His search for the truth leads to a dramatic shootout on Roosevelt Island, side-by-side with his murderous client.
If you are looking for an amazing mystery full of twist and turns, look no further. I had never had the pleasure of reading Mr. Camacho's work before so I had no idea what I was missing. His knowledge of the Washington, D.C. area is fascinating. He makes you feel like you are driving the streets and visiting the places described throughout the book. It is rare to find an author with a fresh approach to this genre without it feeling re-hashed or overdone. This story is anything but. The reader is compelled to keep turning pages and put their life on hold in favor of reaching the spine-chilling conclusion no one could have seen coming. I will be hoarding my free time in order to read the remaining books in this author's arsenal. I know it will be time well-spent.
