Rules of Deception by Christopher Reich

Dr. Jonathan Ransom, a surgeon for Doctors-Without-Borders, and his wife, Emma, are mountain climbing in the Swiss Alps. A storm sets in and it is too late for them to turn back. Emma tries to escape the storm and ends up tumbling on the slope and fractured her leg. Ransom knew he had to get help. His only choice was to leave Emma. Upon his return, he discovered her dead at the bottom of a crevasse. All he could see was a trail of blood. He figured her bone must have ruptured an artery. There was not enough rope for he and the rescuers to reach her.
A short time later, Jonathan receives an envelope addressed to his wife containing two baggage claim tickets. He and one of Emma's friends, go to pick up the bags. Ransom was not aware that his wife had some kind of dealings in Switzerland. He was in for a shock because he was ambushed in trying to get the bags and in return fired back. Little did he know at the time but he ended up killing two Swiss police officers.
When Ransom opens Emma's bags he is in for even a bigger shock. There he finds a change of clothing, keys to a Mercedes, one hundred thousand Swiss Francs and a driver's license issued to Mrs. Eva Kruger with Emma's face on it. What was going on? How did he not know something like this?
Dr. Ransom now becomes the target of an international mahunt. The only way he can survive is to find out what his wife's involvement was in all of this.
Will Ransom be able to find out the truth before it is too late?
Wow! This book is a riveting thriller that will take the reader on a very fast, adventuresome ride. It includes everything to make it a real winner - spies, high-tech weaponry, and global terrorism. What more could you ask for? From the moment I sat down and read the first couple of pages, I knew I was in for an exciting read that just could not be put down. The author does an excellent job in setting the stage for this intriguing book and the excitement builds from there. Be sure to add Rules of Deception to your reading list. You will be in for a treat!
