RADIANT ANGEL, by Nelson DeMille
But Petrov doesn't drink or party. While the dozen women hired for the evening cavort in the huge swimming pool, Petrov sits in the shadows and watches. Corey and Farraday have jumped on the caterer's truck and now pose as servers. When Petrov, his once-assistance in Serbian massacres, and a man revealed as a nuclear scientist vanish, Corey knows more than another party is the reason. Told to stand down by the bureaucracy he's come to hate, he realizes that a newly-resurgent Russia under the bully-in-chief has decided to risk all, and Manhattan is the target. It's a 4, my personal protest against a one-dimensional villain and a writer's tic ("He further informed me," and endless variations) that repeatedly brought me out of the story. But it's a blood-drenched free-for-all, with Corey in fabulous shape.
