“Dangers rarely come with a warning.” Those are the cryptic words of a Russian assassin whose well-planned attacks on luxury hotels leave a trail of charred destruction and dead bodies in his wake. International hotel executive and former Army Intelligence officer Dan Reilly races to find out who is behind these deadly attacks in Gary Grossman and Ed Fuller’s high-octane international thriller, RED Hotel.
When a luxury hotel in Tokyo is bombed, Reilly visits the charred wreckage to see if he can find answers to the tragedy that killed 115 people. While viewing surveillance video of the horrific aftermath, he hones in on an unfazed and smug man leaving the scene of the blast. The terrorist? Soon Reilly becomes convinced that the bombing is more significant than even American intelligence imagines and the unknown man could be the key. He begins a globe-hopping search to identify and locate the suspect. Working inside and outside the system he suspects Russia may be behind the plot; a possible stepping stone toward creating a provocation to seize former Soviet bloc nations. As Reilly’s hunt intensifies, he becomes involved with a businesswoman whose proximity feels more than coincidental. Who to trust? Reilly works to strengthen security at his international properties which puts him in the crosshairs of the assassin and his Russian sponsor. The pace quickens and the clock ticks toward another bombing, a military strike by Russia, and possible ground war in Europe. RED Hotel opens the door to very real and present dangers that could be headlines in tomorrow’s news.
