Review

"A highly complex thriller." -- Publishers Weekly on Wildcard

"Rachel Lee is a master of romantic suspense." -- Romantic Times

More About the Author

Writing found me, not the other way around. In third grade a teacher asked me to help write a play for the class to put on for a school assembly. The bug bit firmly and permanently.

Among my favorite things is having coffee with a friend, cooking Korean food, and trying to figure out my two cats.

Among the high points of my travels were visiting Mayan pyramids, Roman forts, Gothic churches and the Eiffel Tower. I even got to stand where Charlemagne once held court. Oh, and I walked the Freedom Trail in Boston.

There's still a lot more I want to see.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Rachel Lee's next installment about the mysterious but deadly Brotherhood provides a thrill ride that never stops. The book begins with simultaneous bomb blasts worldwide in large Catholic churches during Midnight Mass as well as bomb blasts in strategic economic targets. There is one exception- a small church in Baden-Baden, Germany, is also destroyed along with the family of Renate Bachle, aka the Bookworm. Renate, along with her partner, Lawton Caine, had to fake their deaths and leave their previous lives due to the machinations of the Brotherhood. Both are now part of Office 119, a secretive U.N. agency created to combat terrorism. Renate has been following the money trail of the Brotherhood for a long time and now, seeking vengeance for the deaths of her family members, she continues this endeavor. Meanwhile, Ahmed Ahsani has begun his own investigations as he had initiated a worldwide attack for that Christmas but his targets were the economic targets and no lives were to be lost. Ahmed is the leader of the Saif Alsharaawi, an organization that had intended to show that Muslims were peaceful and could police themselves. Underlying the major plotline is the continued journeys of Father Steve Lorenzo in Guatemala where he was sent by the Vatican to locate the Codex. He locates the Codex only to have it stolen by an operative of General Soult, who also has close ties to the terrorist activities. Rachel Lee deftly ties this complex plot together while leaving the reader prepared for the next book in the series. This novel is a stand-alone novel but will be best appreciated if the precursors, WITH MALICE and WILDCARD, have been read. Don't mistake this novel for a romance novel; this is a very complicated novel of intrigue, history, and political machinations. I'm a huge fan of this series and read each one as swiftly as I get my hands on a copy. Highly recommended!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Christmas is being celebrated around the globe when the simultaneous terrorist attacks occur. In every time zone a Catholic Cathedral is devastated. At the same several economic points like an oil rig and the New York Stock Exchange data base were also hit. Whereas the former left thousands dead; the latter killed no one. Additionally, an anomaly in Baden, Baden happened when a small church was targeted.

Saudi moderate Ahmed Ahsami feels betrayed. He set up the economic terrorism to hurt the west without causing deaths, which is why he chose Christmas. However, when you partner with the devil anything can happen and this case did. He plans vengeance for Islamic and Catholics as he tells Vatican Monsignor Vectroni of Stewards of Faith. In France, history aficionado General Jules Souet celebrates the first step he fostered towards his taking over as the world's leader.

At the same time UN Office 119 operative Renate Baehle is filled with rage over the Baden, Baden murders as her family was eradicated in her opinion to get at her. She plans vengeance on those who committed the atrocity. Renate and Lawton Laine begin tracking the Internet banking that was needed to support this pandemic terrorism even as the nuclear genie appears on the verge of escaping the bottle.

This exciting doomsday thriller smoothly ties two modern day conspiracies from competing groups vying for world domination back to Moses. The story line leaps around the globe as numerous subplots bring across the vast scope of the secret societies to dominate the planet. Initially difficult to follow with so much happening seemingly everywhere, the regional actions tie back together to forge the main exhilarating plot. Fans will appreciate this fast-paced powerful conspiracy thriller.

This was a fun read about terrorism, spies, and espionage in the highest levels of worldwide government. Would probably give it a 3 1/2!

If you can read, you will enjoy this novel. What an amazing read. I can't wait for more. Some people should read books with lots and lots of pictures and skip the part of literary critic altogether.

The "Crimson Code" is an excellent continuation of the series that began with "With Malice" and "Wildcard" and I look forward to future installments.
