Mark Parragh avec Rope on Fire: A John Crane Adventure (John Crane Series Book 1) (English Edition)
Global power is held by a few hundred billionaires. When the government that trained him cuts him loose, one of those billionaires picks him up. Now they’re unlikely friends out to save the world—in style.
When the government shutters the top secret Hurricane Group, elite agent John Crane finds himself out of a job, with some very unusual skills and a classified resume. But if the government doesn’t want Crane’s talents, Josh Sulenski does. Josh is a Silicon Valley prodigy with more money than 37 countries, some serious James Bond fantasies, and a problem he thinks Crane can solve. Someone’s going to a lot of trouble to sabotage a harmless biological survey Josh supports, and he wants to know who and why.
Crane tracks the answers from the beaches of Puerto Rico to the back alleys of Eastern Europe, and into a whole new world. It’s a world of wealth, intrigue, and vicious power struggles where governments just don’t matter. Working alone without official cover, Crane makes up new rules on the fly, relying on his wits and generous application of Josh’s money. But fast cars and flashy clothes only go so far. Caught in a crossfire between underworld factions, with innocent lives at stake, Crane is drawn into a battle to the death where all his skills, and all Josh’s money, may not be enough to save him.
