Facing international gangsters in deadly shootouts and high- speed chases, Gill Underwood's fate rests on his mastery of The Art of War . . . and on his thirst for vengeance.

Gill Underwood and his jewel-heisting partner Trudy Elwell have been set up, and Trudy has paid the ultimate price. Now Underwood, a former naval intelligence officer, is holding $150 million worth of hot sparks, running from ruthless gangs of Serbians, Chinese, Israelis, and Cubans--and the Feds are closing in. With speed, technology, brains, and brawn, Underwood must turn the tables in a heart-pounding game of cat and mouse that leads to the most deadly enemy of all.

Praise:

One of Jon Jordan's (Crimespree) most memorable books of 2012!

"Abundant action, comic confrontations, and clever deceits make for a fun-filled read. The final twist is not to be missed."--Library Journal (starred review)

"The fast-paced action builds to a devilishly complex solution."--Publishers Weekly

"Wiprud excels at creating a sense of place; readers will feel like they're right there with Gill on New Jersey's Gold Coast and throughout the Big Apple and beyond."--RT Book Reviews

"Wickedly clever and meticulously engaging crime fiction by a master of the genre."--Fresh Fiction

"The Clausewill appeal to readers who look for Bourne Identity style thrillers. The book is carefully plotted, slowly revealing the schemes and the identity of the anti-hero Gill, who is not what he seems to be, while at the same time keeping him breathlessly on the run from three flavors of bad guy and the law."--Night Owl Reviews

This is one of those extremely rare, perfectly crafted novels, with the build up to the extremely current, realistic ending. A superbly written and researched novel of the first order. Great book!
