Steve Martini in his new book, “Trader Of Secrets book coverTrader Of Secrets” Book Twelve in the Paul Madriani series published by Harper gives us another adventure with Paul Madriani.

From the back cover: In California, two men argue in a parked car . . . as the plot unfolds to profitably transfer secret technology into malevolent hands.

In Ohio, a young woman slips away from her protectors for a morning run—unaware that the killer she’s being protected from waits in the darkness. The woman is Sarah, daughter of defense attorney Paul Madriani. Her assailant is the vengeful assassin named Liquida.

Now Paul Madriani—along with his companion, Joselyn Cole, and his law partner, Harry Hinds—must venture into the vortex of international terror in search of an ice-cold killer and a trader of secrets before the ultimate weapon of mass destruction sets the world ablaze.

“Trader Of Secrets” is actually the third book in a trilogy so if you haven’t read the previous two books, don’t panic. Mr. Martini has set it up so that you will feel you haven’t missed anything however I do recommend that afterwards you go out and read the previous two to find out just how much you missed. Yes, Paul Madriani is a top-notch lawyer but in this book, as in the previous one, he never sets foot in a courtroom.It almost seems as if Mr. Martini set out to write another Bond adventure with Madriani as the super-spy.  the assassin Liquida Muerte is back looking for revenge in this high-speed, spy political thriller. Despite my disappointment with Madriani not doing any lawyer activities I have no complaints. Once Mr. Martini got hold of me he did not want to let go. The suspense is practically constant, only sporadically does Mr. Martini let you come up for air. Let me assure you that once you get started with “Trader Of Secrets” you are not going to want to stop until you finish so I recommend you start early. Mr. Martini has provided us with a very clever exciting book and I look forward to the next book in this series.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on this entry in the Paul Madriani series. I agree that whenever the legal element is missing (or diminished), I miss it too!
