Publisher's Summary

Robin Monarch is a man with a complicated past and dangerous present. He's been a soldier, a CIA agent, and freelance operative, but first and foremost, Robin Monarch is a thief of the highest order. Orphaned at 12, Monarch originally stole for survival, then he stole for his friends and cohorts, now he steals to order and to give back to the to the woman who saved his life many years ago. With the help of his team, Monarch breaks into the legendary Christmas party of Beau Arsenault, a shady investor and behind the scenes player at the very highest levels of power politics. Arsenault is not above bending or breaking the rules if there's illicit profit to be made. Monarch has decided that those illicit profits will be better used to take care of orphans and street kids. Using the party as cover to break into Arsenault's secret vaults, Monarch comes away with two unexpected things. One is a bullet - he gets shot when he's caught trying to escape with tens of millions of negotiable instruments. The second is a lead on what might be his most audacious exploit ever. A previously undiscovered tribe in South America may well have the secret to the most sought after knowledge in history - that of eternal life. And Robin Monarch must use all his skills - as an operative, as a thief - to keep this secret from falling into the worst possible hands.

Best of an outstanding series!

Read the publisher's summary; I do not wish to give away more info on this outstanding novel. I listened to this novel 18 months ago and it is definitely worth listening to again. The entire Robin Monarch series by Mark Sullivan is worthwhile with some 4 star and some 5 star novels. Jeff Gurner narrates exceptionally well.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Dirk Pitt / Mitch Rapp = Robin Monarch

I read all three Robin Monarch books in the past ten days. More please! I liked these better than Mark Sullivan's Private series w/ James Patterson.

Its an oft-used scenario - "former spec ops guy with a quirky past" and with a team of loyal specialists who he assembles for each new adventure. If you like that type of story, you should like these. I do and I did.

I liked this one - Thief - the best of the three so far. A left-over really bad guy (a tycoon) returns to "get Robin". There's a Clive Cussler-esque element in this one involving The Fountain of Youth and plenty of lock & load action.
