Caravan of Thieves by David Rich (Dutton)

Rollie Waters is every inch as smart as his father, but one difference is that Rollie is honest while his dad is one of the biggest con-artists of his generation. Rollie has been a hero in Iraq and worked as an undercover agent for the Marines in Afghanistan. But now he is being asked to help find his father. who may be responsible for the disappearance of $25,000,000!

Rollie senses his father might not have stolen the money but he knows darn well that his Dad knows where the money is. Rollie is immediately caught between two competing forces: Colonel Gladden of the Marines who wants the money back and Major McColl, whose gang may be responsible for the theft. And each side will do anything to get the money back. Rollie knows he will have to look at his past, first to find his dad and then to follow any clues to find the money.

Rollie soon realizes that Gladden may be no more honest than McColl and he fully realizes that his own life is very much in danger! He is driven to find the money but he knows he will have to use all of his skills to prevent being caught in this web. It takes awhile before Rollie realizes that this assignment is tied up with the uncover work he did in Afghanistan but it takes some time to put the puzzle pieces together.
David Rich's fast-paced debut is a page turner and surprises await at almost every turn.

David Rich has done himself proud!!
