From the back cover: To prevent a war in Asia–one that could quickly spread to the rest of the world–Paul Janson and Jessica Kincaid must learn the truth behind a young woman’s murder…
Prominent U.S. Senator James Wyckoff hires former government agents-turned-private security consultants Janson and Kincaid to locate his teenage son Gregory. Gregory’s girlfriend Lynell has been found strangled in a Seoul hotel, and Gregory has fled the city to avoid being arrested for the crime. But Senator Wyckoff insists that his son is innocent, suggesting that Lynell, who was a translator, may have been murdered because of something she overheard at a recent international conference.
And when Janson and Kincaid realize they’re being hunted by an assassin, they suspect that this crime–and the cover-up–were orchestrated by a shadowy unit of the U.S. State Department as part of a larger plot to provoke violence between North and South Korea.
Now in order to prevent a multi-country war—and to escape with their lives intact—Janson and Kincaid must learn the truth behind Lynell’s murder before time runs out…
Robert Ludlum was a master on giving us spy versus spy stories. Douglas Corleone is a worthy successor to the title. In “The Janson Equation” Mr. Corleone has given us quite a run around South Korea and, then, even parts of North Korea. You never know who will betray him and both his life and Jessica’s life are in, practically, constant peril from the moment they land. These stories show the immense value of one human being and how one person can make such a marked difference. This is an amazing adventure that is also an incredibly exciting thriller. This one is a page turner that will keep you up late at night while you try to finish it. Absolutely worth it all!
