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.


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!
