Publisher's Summary

The USS Vicksburg is returning home when the crew comes upon a lifeboat bearing a dead Somali pirate who shows signs of torture. Questions immediately arise: Who is this man, and which ship did he come from? Who tortured him? Soon Red Cell analysts Kyra Stryker and Jonathan Burke have traced the dead man back to an Iranian ship currently bound for Venezuela - and the ship appears to have dangerous, radioactive cargo on board. The Iranians' plan quickly becomes clear - they're building a nuclear bomb in politically unstable Venezuela, away from the UN's prying eyes. Stryker and Burke must tread carefully, though, because diplomacy in Venezuela is tricky at best. A civil war is at stake if word gets out. Can they stop the Iranians before it's too late?

Skip This One

A slow uninteresting story made worse by a bad reader. I forced myself to continue after the first hour hoping it would get better. However, after a conversation with about a dozen "he said" and "she said" after the shot statements, I gave up. This is one of the most boring books I have ever tried.

Some quirks but we'll worth it.

Reader is a vast improvement over the one who did Red Cell.. Story is on par with red cell. I had similar difficulty connecting with the characters initially but these stories reward patience.
A bit quirky about alcohol, tobacco, cursing, and Mormons.... But far preferable to the excess that is so common in the genre.

Great Story

This genre is not my wheelhouse at all.

Therefore I am very surprised about how much I enjoyed this.

If you like the Harry Bosch series you should like this book. Good international story line.

End arrived too soon, I wasn't ready to be done

Maybe the next one can be extra long, good books usually end too quickly. Just when I'm not ready to give up the characters.

Intriguing and Suspenseful

Enjoyed the story although I feel it would have been better if I'd read the first book in the series lending a fuller background of the characters. The narration was good. I will be looking forward to more stories by Mark Henshaw now that I've found this author.

Well Done!!

Mark has done it again. In this sequel to Red Cell the characters once again find themselves in the situation of working to prevent a war between the United States of America and another country. This book is an action packed adventure you see how cooler heads in the field can prevent politicians from plunging the country into yet another war.

I hope that Mark continues to write!

Entertaining, well written and narrated

I enjoyed this book tremendously. Well constructed, good pace, nicely narrated with good pronunciation. I liked the fact that the author didn't have to resort to profanity laced pseudo-dialog to make up for a weak story line. I'm looking forward to Red Cell next.
