As a CIA operative, Robin Monarch was the US government's most valuable asset. Nowadays, as a rogue international thief, he answers to only himself. So when Monarch finds himself in the darkest recesses of the Amazon jungle - very much against his own wishes - he is on unfamiliar terrain in more ways than one.
THE PRIZE HE MUST STEAL.
Deep within the Brazilian rainforest lies a secret of incalculable value to mankind. Robin Monarch must locate and extract this enigmatic treasure: not for greed or gain, but because a life, that of the woman dearest to him, is at stake.
THE PERSON HE MUST SAVE.
Sister Rachel Diego del Mar, the missionary who saved Monarch's life when he was a homeless orphan, has been kidnapped by a vengeful past adversary. If Monarch does not give his enemy the Amazon's secret, they will take her life.
Unaccustomed to failure, and unprepared to let his nemesis prevail, Monarch has vowed to deliver - first the coveted prize, then his full, uncompromising retribution.
Early in Sullivan's exciting third Robin Monarch novel (after 2013's Outlaw), the latter-day Robin Hood burgles the Greenwich, Conn., mansion of billionaire Beau Arsenault during a Christmas party. Once Arsenault identifies the escaped thief, the mogul takes his revenge by arranging the kidnapping of Sister Rachel Diego del Mar from her medical clinic in a Buenos Aires slum. Monarch pulls out all the stops to save Sister Rachel, who once rescued him from a dead-end life in the Brotherhood of Thieves. In action spanning the globe, three of Monarch's associates stalk Swiss banker Tristan Hormel in Europe; Claudio Fortunato, his oldest friend, hunts for clues in Buenos Aires; and Monarch joins scientist Estella Santos and her crew on a journey up the Amazon in search of a tribe that may hold the secret to human longevity. Two old enemies seek to beat Monarch to this prize. Sullivan puts a fresh spin on a familiar premise.
