From the back cover: A film producer, a handsome star, and an African safari guide must race to protect themselves and the world from a terrorist nuclear trade.
Film producer Pero Baltazar thought he was taking a Berlin filming assignment. He needed the work, needed to get back in the saddle after fighting off a life-threatening experience in East Africa—al-Shabaab had attacked his crew, intent on a much larger terrorist attack. Suddenly he finds himself under orders from his part-time employers at the State Department and the CIA when he is handed a mysterious package. It’s an assignment he doesn’t want. The problem is, it’s a job contracted by mysterious patrons who are prepared to kill him if he doesn’t deliver.
Pero—now in far too deep—turns to friends, old and new, to help him unravel the mystery of the package, uncover connections to Nazi concentration camp gold recently sold by the US Treasury, and thwart the ex–Stasi chief, now head of a powerful banking group.
In this fast-paced sequel to Murder on Safari, Pero calls on Mbuno, his friend and East African safari guide, to anticipate the moves of his enemies as if they were animals—dangerous vermin—who have kidnapped both the film star and director. Mbuno’s tracking skills may keep them from getting killed—provided Pero can rope in more help and keep the CIA at bay.
Pero Baltazar is trying to recuperate from his first adventure, “Murder on Safari“. You wouldn’t think that he could get involved in another global threat but that would be so wrong as the CIA want him to deliver a package to Berlin. Mr. Riva has given us a fast-paced thriller filled with action, and great suspense. “The Berlin Package” is loaded with twists and turns that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Pero, Mbuno and all the rest of these characters are quite interesting and they hook you so that you want to read more about them. This book is going to take up all of your attention so start reading early because once you get started you will not want to put this book down until you actually finish. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
