John Knox and Grace Chu, the incomparable duo of the Risk Agent novels, team up again in the latest international thrill ride from New York Times bestselling author Ridley Pearson. When ex-military contractor John Knox receives a text from partner Grace Chu warning that she fears her cover may have been blown while on assignment, he jumps into action. Knox must locate her overseas handlers, convince them of the threat, and then attempt to retrace the well-hidden steps of a woman who had been attempting to determine how one million euros’ worth of AIDS vaccine disappeared, all while eluding angry poachers on a parallel trail. Corruption isn’t a “problem” in Kenya, it’s the way of doing business. The poaching of ivory from African elephants, driven by insatiable demand from mainland China, fuels constant blood and slaughter. Knox faces police, national rangers, journalists, and safari companies who are each in their own symbiotic relationship with elephants, both good and bad. As the threat from Al-Shaabab militants interferes with his pursuit of Grace, Knox finds himself pitted against the most savage and suicidal fighters in the world. And there’s this woman, Grace, always in his head. His gut. As Grace watches as her civilized self slips away while abandoned in the bush, Knox races against the clock to find her.

John Knox and Grace Chu, the incomparable duo of the Risk Agent novels, team up again in the latest international thrill ride from New York Times bestselling author Ridley Pearson.

When ex-military contractor John Knox receives a text from partner Grace Chu warning that she fears her cover may have been blown while on assignment, he jumps into action.

Corruption isn’t a “problem” in Kenya, it’s the way of doing business. The poaching of ivory from African elephants, driven by insatiable demand from mainland China, fuels constant blood and slaughter.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Outstanding.” Suspense Magazine
“This crackling adventure doubles as a survival guide for your next trip to the striking, endangered landscape of East Africa.” Kirkus Reviews
“Highlights the very real threat of extinction faced by Kenya’s magnificent wildlife.” Publishers Weekly
“Series fans will appreciate the deeper exploration of John’s and Grace’s characters…Full-sensory descriptions of Kenya balance cutthroat international criminal networks and teeth-clenching firefights.” Booklist
“Haberkorn has a strong voice and does a solid job with this dialogue-rich thriller. He sets a good pace and conveys Pearson’s suspense without overacting. While his black Africans all sound similar, it’s not difficult to differentiate them. Further, his white South African, English, and American voices are exceptionally well realized.” AudioFile
“Haberkorn effectively dramatizes the corruption and peril encountered by Grace Chu and John Knox in Kenya…Haberkorn’s pacing and tone reflect the ratcheting tension, intrigue, and adventure…Haberkorn uses accents to distinguish among the many characters, including affluent Englishmen, Nairobian urchins, Kenyan and Somali bush hunters, and the Chinese mastermind. He maintains the thriller’s intensity during detailed environmental descriptions…and his reading underlines Pearson’s theme of wildlife protection. A good choice for Pearson’s many fans and others who appreciate thrillers with a little romance and detailed backgrounds.” Booklist (audio review)
“Readers can always count on Pearson to deliver complex and exciting stories, but in this new Risk Agent novel, he outdoes himself…The intense fear yet gritty determination to survive—demonstrated by Grace—packs this tale with gut-punching emotion that is guaranteed to keep readers on the edge of their seats!” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
