"A compelling, page-turning blend of spy and caper fiction: it's Robin Hood for the twenty-first century.” –Jeff Abbott 

Mark Sullivan, the co-author of James Patterson’s Private Games, has, in Robin Monarch, created a compelling new hero. Monarch is a world-class thief and a highly skilled operative––a man with skills, a rigid code of honor, powerful friends and implacable enemies. 

In ‘Escape Artist,’ Monarch’s abilities––and his nerve––are both tested when he’s sent deep into the jungles of the Congo, into the encampment of an army of boy-soldiers under the leadership of a man calling himself Lieutenant Zed.  He’s undercover as a black market diamond dealer. His job is to steal the largest, most perfect diamond yet seen before Zed is able to sell it and use the proceeds to continue waging war.  But as any thief could tell you, getting in is the easy part.  Getting out, however, from the heart of an unfamiliar jungle with a hostile ‘army’ at your back, requires more skill and luck that even Robin Monarch can count on.

Robin Monarch––called “one of the most compelling heroes since Jason Bourne” (Lisa Gardner)––is introduced in this chilling, nerve-wracking story.  Presented with a special excerpt from Rogue, the first Robin Monarch novel, coming in Fall of 2012.

Sullivan has created an intriguing and complex character in Monarch, one for whom there are obviously many stories, past and present, left to tell."
