Synopsis

The Orpheus Deception by David Stone

The Orpheus Deception opens with a brutal assassination attempt on the rainy streets of Venice that sets CIA agent Micah Dalton on a collision course with a vengeful Serbian warlord. Picking up where The Echelon Vendetta left off - Dalton is still on the run from the CIA, finding himself ever more entangled in a web of conspiracies. He tries to uncover the links between a savage act of piracy in the South China Sea, the disappearance of a CIA agent, and an elusive ship known only as 'Orpheus.' As he desperately seeks to unlock the shattering secret, Dalton is once again caught up in an international chase that takes him from Italy to Singapore and finally back to his homeland and ever-greater danger to himself...
