Valentine Pescatore has put a hazardous life in US law enforcement behind him, and started over as a private investigator in Buenos Aires. But dangers have followed him from home.

Soon after a chance encounter with his long-lost friend Raymond - a charismatic, troubled man who's recently converted to Islam - a terrorist attack kills hundreds. Suspicion falls on Raymond... putting Pescatore in the frame too.

Angry and betrayed, Pescatore joins forces with a beautiful French agent to clear his name by tracking his old friend down. But is Raymond a terrorist, a spy or a gangster? Is he truly lost, or can Pescatore rescue him from the deadly path he's travelling on?

From the jungles of South America to the streets of Paris to the battlegrounds of Baghdad, Pescatore finds himself caught in a global conspiracy, in a race against time to prevent another atrocity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A revelation. Sure, it's a smart, gripping thriller that will have you turning the pages at high speed. But it's also a deep, emotionally resonant story of identity, friendship, and faith. Rotella's characters leap off the page in three dimensions and his plot is as imaginative as it is believable. -- Ivy Pochoda, author of VISITATION STREET
Praise for TRIPLE CROSSING * . *
An astonishingly impressive debut from an investigative journalist with a sharp eye for the duplicity that stalks the border between the U.S. and Mexico... a taut, lean and satisfying thriller that lingers in your mind long after you've finished it. * Daily Mail *
Rotella is an expert on the vicious anarchy of Mexican crime and politics... His balance of intimate storytelling and operatic scale is stunning. * Daily Telegraph *
One of the most accomplished first novels I have ever read... full of dangers, deep characters and a story writ on a grand scale... an important piece of work from an author whose voice should be heard -- Michael Connelly
Employs a journalist's sharp eye and a novelist's deft touch to give us a rich portrait of the sights, smells, sounds, beauties and dangers of life south of the border... honest and engrossing * Washington Post *
A fast-paced thriller that rings true to the real story behind the political posturing over the drug war, illegal immigration and border security. * Kirkus Reviews *
