Synopsis: Liz Sansborough thought she had left her past behind forever. A former CIA field agent as well as the daughter of perhaps the most notorious Cold War assassin, the man known to the world only as The Carnivore, Liz is now a university professor in Southern California specializing in the psychology of violence. But her dead father's legacy has come back to overtake Liz.
Someone, somewhere is claiming to have possession of the Carnivore's secret files and is using the information contained within them to blackmail prominent world figures to promote some secret agenda. Files that Liz swore her father never kept. First Liz herself is attacked and almost killed, then Liz's cousin Sarah Walker is kidnapped in Paris and her husband, CIA agent Asher Flores, is gravely wounded. The only ransom the kidnappers will accept is the Carnivore's files. Now if Liz is to save Sarah, she must somehow resurrect her old tradecraft skills and, in a desperate hunt across two continents, locate the files and uncover a dark and dangerous conspiracy linked to a shadowy group known only as the Coil.
With her bestselling thriller Masquerade, Gayle Lynds earned her reputation as one of the most exciting new writers of international suspense. Now with The Coil, the sequel to Masquerade, Gayle Lynds is at the very top of her form, proving herself one of the finest writers in the field today.
From the Back Cover:
"A FAST-PACED, THRILLINGLY PARANOID, PAGE-TURNING INTERNATIONAL ADVENTURE, AND INTRIGUE AT ITS BEST."
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."
