Description

Pascual Rose – the terrorist courier turned deep-cover informant introduced in Dominic Martell’s acclaimed international thriller Lying Crying Dying – returns in this masterfully executed, continually unpredictable, relentlessly suspenseful new adventure.   From the outset, when an over-friendly total stranger accosts the down-and-out Pascual in the shadowy nave of Santa Maria del Mar cathedral, Pascual wants no part of anything he has to offer.  Nonetheless, a hundred thousand dollars and the threat of exposure lure Pascual from portside Barcelona, where he has been hiding from his terrorist past, to the banking precincts of Paris, where he again confronts it.    Hired by French intelligence to finger a one-time comrade turned global terrorism entrepreneur, Pascual finds himself hurled into Algerian factional warfare and charmed by an earnest Algerian journalist, who weds her destiny to his.  She gets more than a story, however, as she follows Pascual into a perilous world where your closest ally may be a traitor and the enemy your lifeline, where bullets are common currency and nothing can be taken at face value.  Least certain of all to the increasingly beleaguered Pascual is the identity of the real heavyweights.  He knows only that beyond Algerian death squads, beyond the long arm of the Russian conglomerate Mirakl, beyond French security agents and the Swiss police, operates a faceless cadre that acknowledges no borders and honors no bonds.

Publishers Weekly Review

Dec 23, 2002 – Retired counterterrorist Pascual March (known to readers of Martell's first thriller, Lying Crying Dying, as Pascual Rose) is hiding in Barcelona, somewhat the worse for wear, when he is reluctantly coaxed back into action by a French intelligence agency that makes him an offer he can't refuse. They will deposit a big check in a bank account for him—and generously allow him to live. In turn, he needs to help them capture international terrorist Daoud Najjar. March is the only person capable of even recognizing Najjar, since others in the intelligence community who knew the criminal mastermind are dead of mostly unnatural causes. Najjar is one of an ethnically mixed Russian-based group called Mirakl, which has bought control of a Parisian bank and is using it for money laundering, drug and weapons dealing, and prostitution. The group is scheduled to meet soon at the bank's headquarters. Together with Djemila Yacine, an Algerian newswoman in pursuit of a nefarious Algerian general who's part of Mirakl, Pascual hatches a scheme to plant a transmitter on Najjar. The scheme backfires, and Najjar recognizes Pascual and Djemila, putting their lives in immediate danger. The action flies from one European transportation hub to another as bodies pile up. No one is trustworthy except the author, who skillfully whips up a satisfying thriller in spite of a few predictable turns. Pascual's quiet dignity and savoir faire continue to charm.
