The Rhythm Section: A Stephanie Patrick Thriller

by Burnell, Mark (Author)

ISBN: 9781250210586

Stephanie Patrick's life is destroyed by the crash of flight NEO027. Her family was on board and there were no survivors. Devastated, she drops out of college and her life spins out of control as she enters a world of drugs and prostitution-until a journalist discovers that the crash wasn't an accident. Filled with rage, and with nothing left to loose, Stephanie focuses on one goal: revenge.

An opportunity arises when Stephanie is approached and recruited by a covert intelligence organization. They offer her a deal. She must undergo rigorous training; learn how to control her heart rate and breathing (the rhythm section); and learn how to efficiently use weapons. Then, she will assume a new identity and commit acts of terrorism on behalf of the organization. When she completes these assignments successfully-and proves her loyalty-she will be offered the chance to take out her family's killers.

Disguised as Petra, a mercenary terrorist based out of Germany, and as Marina, an international businesswoman based in London, Stephanie enters the brutal world of international espionage, and adapts quickly. But as the stakes get higher, Stephanie begins to question what her value really is. Is the organization telling her the truth, or are they using her for some other agenda? More important: Is avenging her family worth the price she is paying? And if it isn't, will the organization that created her let her go? Grand Central Publishing Spring Summer 2019 Frontlist
