This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Prescient and chilling, DeMille's #1 New York Times bestselling novel takes us into the heart of a new Cold War with a clock-ticking plot that has Manhattan in its crosshairs.
After a showdown with the notorious Yemeni terrorist known as The Panther, John Corey has left the Anti-Terrorist Task Force and returned home to New York City, taking a job with the Diplomatic Surveillance Group. Although Corey's new assignment with the DSG-surveilling Russian diplomats working at the U.N. Mission-is thought to be "a quiet end," he is more than happy to be out from under the thumb of the FBI and free from the bureaucracy of office life.
But Corey realizes something the U.S. government doesn't: The all-too-real threat of a newly resurgent Russia.
When Vasily Petrov, a colonel in the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service posing as a diplomat with the Russian U.N. Mission, mysteriously disappears from a Russian oligarch's party in Southampton, it's up to Corey to track him down. What are the Russians up to and why? Is there a possible nuclear threat, a so-called radiant angel? Will Corey find Petrov and put a stop to whatever he has planned before it's too late? Or will Corey finally be outrun and outsmarted, with America facing the prospect of a crippling attack unlike anything it's ever seen before?
Please note: Radiant Angel is published in the UK under the title A Quiet End.
2 stars is giving it something.
I've read everything The author has written. There was a time when no author could outdo his writing.
But, as far as I'm concerned that all changed with 9/11 and his book about the TWA disaster. All he's written since is Corey - the all rolled into 1 Don Rickles, the Lone Ranger and Delta Force - zeroing in on the bad guy.
The current book is a step down from the usual mediocre tale. About 50% of this book, is dialogue and action by the 2 main crazies without Corey's involvement.
Save your money on this one.
Lacking in action. I would not buy this book again. Save your money.
Boring Waste of Time & Money
DeMille once wrote some good books. This is not one of them. Redundant boring dialogue had me skimming through page after page looking for anything interesting. The evil genius nonchalantly walks through two chapters killing unarmed people in boring, redundant detail, reminding us of the plot line over and over again. It's as if the author had to keep reminding himself, though I don't know why... It couldn't be more simplistic. Don't waste your time or money on this book.
