A fugitive’s crimes. A son’s shame. A daughter’s salvation.
Special Agent Miles Ronan has a secret: his father is on the FBI’s Most Wanted List. When Miles is called to Brazil he hasn’t seen his father in years. But there he is, the body on the Rio de Janeiro morgue slab was once clearly Frank Ronan - the infamous LAPD detective who thirty years ago stole $50M in cartel cash and abandoned his son and country. Miles is relieved to finally close this chapter of his life. But then, the coroner reveals that his father has a teenage daughter -- and she’s disappeared.
Now in order to save the only family he has left, Miles must unravel his father’s fugitive past and solve the dark mystery of his stolen millions. A mission that forces him to defy both the U.S. Consulate and the local police… and become a fugitive himself.
From the seductive chaos of Rio de Janeiro to the palm tree wilds of Bahia to the skyscrapers of Sao Paulo to the stunning islands of Angra - THE RIO AFFAIR is an edge of your seat thrill ride straight into the dark, exotic heart of Brazil.
If you’re thrilled by the international stakes of David Baldacci, dig the action of Jack Carr and long for the crime world fun of Elmore Leonard then you will want to get in on the ground floor of this hot new series. Buy THE RIO AFFAIR now and hang on as Special Agent Miles Ronan shows you how it’s done.

Thanks to Netgalley and Books Go Social for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Miles Ronan is an FBI agent whose father disappeared years ago. When he finds out that his father has been murdered in Brazil, he travels there to investigate and finds out he has a half sister, who is missing. With the help of Marie, a journalist, he works to find his sister and uncovers all kinds of nefarious deeds.
I requested this novel on a whim because I have always been intrigued by Rio. It was definitely an action packed read. The author did a really good job of making me feel like I was in the various locations, as Miles traveled around to different areas of Brazil. I loved that part. I did struggle a bit with the many characters that were introduced and keeping them all straight. Overall, an entertaining read and I would read more of the adventures of Miles.
Love the main character Miles. Great debut, looking forward to more. Thanks to Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book
