I enjoyed this book, with the exception of some of the language used in some dialogs between characters. I didn't feel like there was as much as in the first book, however. This book picks up right where The Echelon Vendetta left off.
The Orpheus Deception - the sequel to The Echelon Vendetta - starts with an attempted assassination on the rainy streets of Venice that sets Micah Dalton on a collision course with a vengeful Serbian warlord. Dalton's search for his Serbian attackers ultimately snares him in a tangled web of conspiracies as he tries to uncover the linkages between an act of brutal piracy in the South China Sea, a missing CIA agent, the disappearance of an Italian police officer, and the real nature of an elusive hospital ship known only as The Orpheus, a pursuit that leads Dalton from Venice to Bangkok to Washington DC and finally to a violent confrontation with Serbian terrorists in The Port of Chicago as Dalton unlocks the shattering secret that lies beneath The Orpheus Deception.
