In this sequel, Matt Tremain is back, facing an even deadlier threat. Deceit and intrigue lie hidden behind the collapse of Operation CleanSweep. It’s time for revenge.
Instrumental in exposing the evil behind Operation CleanSweep—a diabolical “cultural cleansing” plot masterminded by Toronto billionaire Charles Claussen—investigative blogger Tremain now faces the madman’s desire for vengeance. Claussen intends to settle the score personally by luring Matt into a deadly trap.
But the clock is ticking for Claussen, too. Fraternité des Aigles, The Brotherhood of Eagles—a shadowy group that secretly financed Claussen’s Operation CleanSweep—wants answers and their money back. Consumed with rage, Claussen risks everything to get to Matt before the Brotherhood gets to him. Tremain is once again partnering with a police detective, Carling. Knowing they are being lured into a possible trap, they decide to face their nemesis, Charles Claussen.
Across four continents, Claussen sets traps, pursues Tremain, and continues to execute his signature brand of global chaos. When his fiancé’s life is on the line, can Tremain stop Claussen’s madness and still avoid getting killed?

As I mentioned with my review on book one, for some reason as much these books have plenty of action and intensity, I struggled to connect with the story as well as Matt and Charles. However, there was something about this book that the "lights" came on. I was able to jump right into the story and read it with more speed.
The dynamics between Matt and Charles was better appreciated. Kind of like a game of cat and mouse. At times both were the mouse. Although, I will say that while Charles may have been more powerful, his anger kind of clouded his judgment with Matt and left him seeing one side. Overall, I did like this series. If you are in the mood for something different, than check out these books.
