A Quiet Vendetta

By award-winning thriller heavyweight R.J. Ellory, this ambitious crime novel takes his skill for suspense to a spellbinding level. When Catherine Ducane disappears in New Orleans, the cops react fast --- she is the governor's daughter, after all. But the case quickly grows strange.

Her bodyguard turns up horribly mutilated, and when the kidnapper calls, he doesn't want money: he wants time alone with a minor government functionary. By the time the pieces fall into place, it's already too late...

A QUIET VENDETTA is both the epic story of one mobster's life --- ranging from Cuba to Chicago --- and equally a powerful thriller of rage, love and loss. With tension to match the best of Cussler, Patterson, and his own bestselling work, A QUIET VENDETTA confirms R.J. Ellory's place at the forefront of the genre.
