Michael Moreci. Forge, $25.99 (320p) ISBN 978-1-250-06501-8
Washington, D.C., lobbyist Mark Strain, the driven hero of this exciting thriller from Moreci (Black Star Renegade), refuses to take no for an answer and will do anything to help his clients achieve their goals, including the use of a little judicious blackmail. He knows he has made a few enemies, but nothing prepares him for the ordeal that lies ahead. He and his pregnant wife are awakened one morning by a band of armed federal agents, who accuse him of being a Russian spy. He’s hauled away without benefit of a trial or an explanation of the charges, and soon finds himself on a plane heading to Moscow in the company of an aging Russian intelligence officer, who explains that Mark can never go home again because the world now knows him as a traitor. Once in Moscow, Mark manages to escape and is soon careening through the Russian countryside, dodging bullets and bad guys, all the while asking himself why this is happening to him. The high-speed cinematic narrative will leave the reader breathless. Agent: Jason Yarn, Yarn Literary. (June)
