Book Review: Rules of Betrayal

Summary from GoodReads:
The most riveting novel yet in Christopher Reich’s New York Times bestselling series—featuring Dr. Jonathan Ransom and his undercover-agent wife Emma, a dangerous woman with a mysterious past who has gone rogue in the high-stakes, serpentine world of international spies.

In 1980, a secret American B-52 crashes high in a remote mountain range on the Pakistan–Afghanistan border. Nearly thirty years later, and spanning locales from those peaks to New York City, a terrible truth will be revealed.

Jonathan Ransom returns as the resourceful doctor thrown into a shadowy world of double and triple agents where absolutely no one can be trusted. To stay alive, Ransom must unravel the mystery surrounding his wife—an enigmatic and lethal spy who plays by her own rules—and discover where her loyalties truly lie.

Rules of Betrayal is a masterfully plotted novel that cements Christopher Reich’s reputation as one of the most admired espionage thriller writers today.

My Review: This is book #3 in the Jonathan Ransom series. I have not read the first two. However, let me tell you -- do not allow that to stop you from reading this book. It totally works on it's own without having read the first two.

This is a thrilling book that will have you stuck in place until you've turned the last page and read the ending. Rules of Betrayal pulls you in and never lets go. It's a great read to escape your current moment in. This international thriller will make you feel like you're there.

The characters within this book, as well as location, are well represented so you get to know who and where within this book.

I have to say, I loved the ending of this book. It left certain things open for more, but it also did close the main plot of the book. I just can't say enough about how well written this book is.

You have to have this book and I have to have more Christopher Reich.
