Summary of A Quiet Vendetta Summary of A Quiet Vendetta Reviews for A Quiet Vendetta An Excerpt from A Quiet Vendetta
By award-winning and bestselling novelist R.J. Ellory, this thriller takes his skill for suspense to a higher level. When Catherine Ducane disappears in New Orleans, the cops react fast -- she is the Governor's daughter, after all. But the case quickly grows very strange. Her bodyguard turns up horribly mutilated, and when the kidnapper calls, he doesn't want money: he wants time alone with a minor government functionary. By the time the pieces fall into place, it's already too late . . .
A Quiet Vendetta is both the epic story of one mobster's life -- following him from Cuba to Chicago -- and equally a powerful thriller of rage, love, and loss. With tension to top Cussler, Patterson, and Ellory's own bestselling work, it confirms R.J. Ellory's place at the forefront of the genre.
