9781304212139: Orinoco

According to N.Y. Times best-selling thriller writer Nelson DeMille, Orinoco is "classical escape reading" with "the ingredients of a good old-fashioned adventure story."

Events move swiftly--from the board room of a New Orleans multinational to the jungles of Venezuela; from a high-stakes takeover battle waged with stock proxies to a primitive duel with machetes and blowguns in the thunderous shadow of Angel Falls.

Standing tall against these landscapes, in his ranch hat and tooled-leather boots, is the larger-than-life figure of Sam Warrender. An Oklahoma wildcatter turned maverick CEO, Sam has never yet walked away from a fight. After battling a corporate cabal led by his hand-picked successor, he hustles his twin-prop Cessna two-thousand miles south into Venezuela's mesa-studded Gran Sabana to stop Caracas politicos and anti-globalist protesters from shutting down his company's mining operation. Once on the ground, Sam finds a new perspective (and a surprising May-September romance), but even more enemies--including his Korean corporate rival, Duk-Won Lee, now actively blocking Sam's every move. And a far more ruthless adversary awaits--an aging caraqueño guerrilla who has emerged from retirement to settle old scores with one last grand act of terrorist mayhem. The book races to an explosive finale with a life-or-death pursuit down the serpentine tributaries of the mighty Orinoco. In the words of thriller master Len Deighton, "a riveting read!"

Orinoco will surprise and delight readers who enjoy thrillers, including action adventure, terrorist thrillers and corporate thrillers.

(Note: Orinoco was first published by Pocket Books in 1994 under the title Pursuit Into Darkness.)

From the Inside Flap:

Dan Pollock's Lair of the Fox was hailed as a "blockbuster thriller" (New York Daily News); the Denver Post praised Duel of Assassins as "an exciting read (that) races to an explosively exciting conclusion." Now Pollock brings us his latest novel of sweeping action and suspense, set in the exotic, forbidding reaches of the Venezuelan wilderness.

Set in a world both ravishing and filled with peril from nature and man, Orinoco is a novel of lively adventure and romance, ending in a high-voltage chase with a masterfully ironic and satisfying twist.

About the Author:

Dan Pollock was born in New York City to a family of writers and grew up in Laguna Beach, California. A former syndicate editor with the Los Angeles Times, Pollock is the author of three thriller novels in addition to Orinoco (originally published as Pursuit Into Darkness)--Lair of the Fox, Duel of Assassins and The Running Boy--and a specially commissioned "logistics" thriller, Precipice.

With his wife, Constance, he has edited and published three literary, inspirational volumes: The Book of Uncommon Prayer; Gospel: The Life of Jesus as Told by the World's Great Writers; and Visions of the Afterlife: Heaven, Hell and Revelation as Viewed by the World's Great Writers.

The Pollocks live in Southern California with their two children.
