Vendetta: A Novel (Mass Market)
Blockbuster bestselling author Iris Johansen brings back fan favorite Catherine Ling—and introduces readers to a whole new world of danger, intrigue, and red-hot passion with Vendetta.
With his dying breath, Carl Venable, head of the CIA task force on terrorism and Jude Brandon’s final link to terrorist ringleader Max Huber, gives Brandon a mandate: keep his daughter Rachel safe—at all costs. But Rachel Venable has a shocking, twisted past of her own, one that comes rushing back after her medical clinic abroad is attacked by Huber—the same man who murdered her father and kept her imprisoned for months.
Now, along with agent Catherine Ling, Rachel’s longtime ally and fierce protector, Brandon is determined to keep Rachel out of danger. As he and Rachel race against the clock to bring Huber down before he can orchestrate a disaster that will lay waste to half the country, they also fight a growing attraction to each other—one that could prove just as dangerous as Huber himself. . .
“Highly complex characters and a stunning conclusion make Vendetta a winner.”—Publishers Weekly
