"About as tightly woven and rock-solid as international thrillers get...Rotella's latest is a tense, gritty thriller--perfectly seedy when it needs to be and near-perfect in its overall execution." --- Kirkus Reviews (starred)
"Rip Crew is a taut, tense international thriller, filled with complex characters and gritty dialogue. Utterly riveting." --- Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of The Wife
Streetwise U.S. agent Valentine Pescatore investigates a brutal killing that leads him across borders and reveals a vast conspiracy of wealth and power terrifyingly close to home.
Valentine Pescatore, the globetrotting former Border Patrol agent, finds himself back on American soil investigating the merciless killing of a group of women in a motel room. At first, the crime seems to be a straightforward case of gangsters battling for territory. Soon, however, the motive is revealed to be much deeper and more sinister: a single witness who knows too much is being hunted, at any cost.
From an author who has been praised for his "pounding action scenes [and] ferocious prose style" (Marilyn Stasio, NYTBR), RIP CREW races at breakneck speed as Pescatore finds himself face-to-face with his most terrifying assignment yet.
