Tough and stylish Brit private eye, Joe Milo, takes on the Russian FSB in this action-packed thriller by the author of KILL CITY USA and THE BELL OF GIRARDIUS
When private eye Joe Milo comes to after being sandbagged in his office, the seductive Cleo arrives to help him recover his pride and convinces him to take on her case. What she doesn’t tell him is that she’d been a baglady for the Russian Mob and for a crooked London banker, and she also sidelines as a cage fighter under the moniker The Whore of Babylon, either of which might have warned Milo off.
But being a sucker for a femme fatale, Milo and his sidekick Jonah are soon entangled with a corrupt British MI6 agent, plus an ex-KGB sociopath who runs a criminal empire out of Monaco on behalf of Russia’s FSB.
After these two government sponsored crooks combine forces against Joe and Jonah in this cleverly plotted, gripping and sexy thriller, the action transits from London to an explosive showdown in the South of France, in the third page-turning novel featuring the tough, laconic, wise-cracking and literate PI, Joe Milo.
Praise from KIRKUS REVIEWS for THE WHORE OF BABYLON “As is always the case where Milo is concerned, no job is too dangerous, and no beautiful woman shall be left unconquered ... For those who’ve read the whole Joe Milo series, two things will be abundantly clear: There’s no villain threatening enough to scare Joe Milo, be it mob boss, Satanist or ex-KGB sociopath. The second is that the author has no time for weak women. From Russian madams to devil worshippers and cage fighters, Roberts renders strong and intelligent female characters and really knows how to put the fatale in femme fatale. Usually by the third go-round, characters and plots lose luster; Roberts keeps his tales shiny, robust and primed for more.”
