"A soft breeze fluttered the white, blue, and red Russian flag in front of the U.N. mission. I remember when the Soviet hammer and sickle flew there. I kind of miss the Cold War. But I think it's back."
After a showdown with the notorious Yemeni terrorist known as The Panther, John Corey has left the Anti-Terrorist Task Force and returned home to New York City, taking a job with the Diplomatic Surveillance Group. Although Corey's new assignment with the DSG - surveilling Russian diplomats working at the UN Mission - is thought to be "a quiet end", he is more than happy to be out from under the thumb of the FBI and free from the bureaucracy of office life.
But Corey realizes something the US government doesn't: the all-too-real threat of a newly resurgent Russia.
When Vasily Petrov, a colonel in the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service posing as a diplomat with the Russian UN Mission, mysteriously disappears from a Russian oligarch's party in Southampton, it's up to Corey to track him down. What are the Russians up to and why? Will Corey find Petrov and put a stop to whatever he has planned before it's too late? Or will Corey finally be outrun and outsmarted, with America facing the prospect of a crippling attack unlike anything it's ever seen before?
Prescient and chilling. DeMille's new novel takes us into the heart of a new Cold War with a clock-ticking plot that has Manhattan in its crosshairs.
Editors Select, May 2015 - My favorite wise-a** former detective John Corey is back! In Radiant Angel, Corey is working a supposedly 'quiet end' job following UN diplomats. But as Corey says himself, 'I can make any job interesting. Or stressful.' When his current assignment Vasily Petrov (codename: Vaseline) gives him the slip (pun intended) it leads Corey to believe that something sinister is at play. Having faced many types of adversaries in his past it's now John Corey vs. the Russians in a game where the stakes couldn't be any higher – the city of New York. –John, Audible Editor

This was not the DeMille I know
- Diane Ferri
Weakest John Corey novel yet !
First half of the SHORTEST book in series has NO Kate and very little John. Much lengthy detail on all murders on the ship.
Involved Kate, used John more, cut the gratuitous violence as the Russian kills all on board the boat.
Scott was fine, it's hard working with a bad script/plot.
Seriously reduce The murders on the boat. There was no point.
Maybe DeMille has run the course of the series. It was half the length and 1/10th the quality. OVERALL a real dud. 😝
