A terrorist bombing in Asia . . . A dead FBI agent in Marseilles . . . Bank accounts linked to a genius finance professor in Boston . . .
Can investigator Graham Gage make the connection before his world collapses?
Days after failing to arrive for a secret meeting with the Federal Reserve chairman, FBI agent Michael Hennessy's body is found at the base of a cliff. But was it suicide or murder? A call from the chairman sends Gage hunting for the truth.
As a desperately ill U.S. president prepares to hand over power to his vice president—a man in the thrall of religious extremists—Gage follows a trail of deceit and terror to a conspiracy that threatens to plummet the world into chaos. But for Gage, there is even more at stake. His wife is trapped between an uprising in Central China and the ruthless Chinese government. And unless Gage exposes the greatest treachery of our age before the clock counts down, Faith will die.
“A brisk pace and an intriguing plot make the pages turn themselves.”
“Masterful.... Sharp, smart writing and convincing economic detail put this in the front rank of genre fiction.”
“Absolute Risk is the work of a talented writer who knows how to hook his readers from the opening line.”
—Richard North Patterson, New York Times bestselling author of Silent Witness
