The book is an easy read that holds the reader’s attention throughout and does so with out a lot of sex or violence. It is not only a great read but all of the events are very plausible and not at all out of reach in today’s world.

...a writer who can invent names like Liquida Muerte should be able to differentiate other names more than Harry and Herman and Thorn and Thorpe. I had to sometimes go back through the novel to remind myself of who was who.

...“The Rule of Nine” is an excellent, gritty, international novel- catering to the taste of contemporary mystery and thriller lovers. And as usual this Madriani (to put it in a cliché) left me both shaken and stirred.
