About this title

Synopsis:

A sequel to the New York Times bestselling novel, Masquerade, The Coil picks up several years later. Liz Sansborough, former CIA agent and now an academic, has managed to put the pieces of her life back together. But Sansborough has a dark secret - she is the daughter of the one of the most notorious Cold War Assassins, The Carnivore. When a series of prominent political figures are blackmailed into certain actions or die in suspicious ways, the CIA becomes convinced that someone has gotten hold of the Carnivore's files and is using that information to further some secret agenda. Sansborough herself - the closet living link to the Carnivore - is the target of a murder attempt, her offices are searched, her files stolen and her TV program on the secrets of the Cold War inexplicably shelved by the network. When she learns her cousin Sarah Walker - who bears a close resemblance to Sansborough - is kidnapped off the street with the ransom demand being the Carnivore's missing - possibly apocryphal - files, Liz is determined to save her cousin and uncover the swirling conspiracy, linked to a shadowy group known as The Coil, centered around the legacy of her father. But she's far from the only one going after the truth behind the legendary assassin.

From the Back Cover:

"A FAST-PACED, THRILLINGLY PARANOID, PAGE-TURNING INTERNATIONAL ADVENTURE, AND INTRIGUE AT ITS BEST."
-Dean Koontz

YOU CAN'T RUN FROM THE PAST...
Professor Liz Sansborough, former CIA operative and daughter of notorious Cold War assassin, Carnivore, thinks her old life is dead and buried. But her father's legacy is impossible to escape. The kidnapping of her cousin Sarah sounds the warning. The ransom: Carnivore's legendary long-lost files.

YOU CAN'T HIDE FROM THE TRUTH...
They're said to hold the deadly secrets of his profession. Now they're being used to manipulate the world's most prominent leaders-a global plot that plunges Liz and undercover agent Simon Childs back into the kill-game, and trapped between a kidnapper's demands and a blackmailer's mysterious agenda...

WHEN REVENGE IS IN THE BLOOD.
Rescuing Sarah is only the beginning. Because the trail is leading Liz and Simon into the shadow of an impenetrable cabal known only as the Coil-and into the heart of an international conspiracy
that knows no mercy, and is leaving no survivors.

"Breakneck pacing, generous helpings of suspense and intrigue, and a plot with more twists than a bag of pretzels...will leave readers begging for more."
-Bookpage
