Summary:

"A soft breeze fluttered the white, blue, and red Russian flag in front of the U.N. mission. I remember when the Soviet hammer and sickle flew there. I kind of miss the Cold War. But I think it's back."

RADIANT ANGEL

After a showdown with the notorious Yemeni terrorist known as The Panther, John Corey has left the Anti-Terrorist Task Force and returned home to New York City, taking a job with the Diplomatic Surveillance Group. Although Corey's new assignment with the DSG-surveilling Russian diplomats working at the U.N. Mission-is thought to be ""a quiet end,"" he is more than happy to be out from under the thumb of the FBI and free from the bureaucracy of office life.

But Corey realizes something the U.S. government doesn't: The all-too-real threat of a newly resurgent Russia.

When Vasily Petrov, a colonel in the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service posing as a diplomat with the Russian U.N. Mission, mysteriously disappears from a Russian oligarch's party in Southampton, it's up to Corey to track him down. What are the Russians up to and why? Is there a possible nuclear threat, a so-called radiant angel? Will Corey find Petrov and put a stop to whatever he has planned before it's too late? Or will Corey finally be outrun and outsmarted, with America facing the prospect of a crippling attack unlike anything it's ever seen before?

Prescient and chilling. DeMille's new novel takes us into the heart of a new Cold War with a clock-ticking plot that has Manhattan in its crosshairs.

Please note: Radiant Angel is published in the UK under the title A Quiet End.

    Another entertaining John Corey adventure. DeMille seems to be getting better and better. If you like DeMille, I think this is his best.

  • Katherine Koch

    I'm usually a fan of DeMille, but this book had so many issues. I always had an issue with his male characters dating or marrying women much younger, but the women were always pretty strong characters so I didn't let it bug me too much. But this one was in poor taste. Plus, the storyline was fairly predictable and not exciting like I'm usually used to with his books. Not every book is a home run though and I won't give up on him yet. The narrator though? The book dragged as did each one of his words. Will definitely be avoiding this narrator in the future.

  • Ronald Mintz

    Another great book by my favorite author. John Cory takes us on another thrill ride.

    If the intent was to destroy the Kate/John relationship. It was done. I know many female readers are refusing to finish the book. Many fans had been waiting and would have enjoyed a positive presentation of marriage and relationships.
