Book Description
 

FAULT LINE by Barry Eisler - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Barry Eisler.

In Silicon Valley, the eccentric inventor of a new encryption application is murdered in an apparent drug deal.

In Istanbul, a cynical undercover operator receives a frantic call from his estranged brother, a patent lawyer who believes he is the next victim.

And on the sun-drenched slopes of Sand Hill Road, Silicon Valley's nerve center of money and technology, old family hurts sting anew as two brothers who share nothing but blood and bitterness wage a desperate battle against a faceless enemy.


Alex Treven has sacrificed everything to achieve his sole ambition: making partner in his high-tech law firm. But then the inventor of a technology Alex is banking on is murdered... and the patent examiner who reviewed it dies... and Alex himself narrowly escapes an attack in his own home. Off balance, out of ideas, and running out of time, he knows the one person who can help him is the last person he'd ever ask: his brother.

Ben Treven is a Military Liaison Element, an elite undercover soldier paid to "find, fix, and finish" high-value targets in America's Global War on Terror. Disenchanted with what he sees as America's culture of denial and decadence, Ben lives his detached life in the shadows because the black ops world is all he really knows—and because other than Alex, who he hasn't spoken to since their mother died, his family is long gone.

But blood is thicker than water, and when he receives Alex's frantic call, Ben hurries to San Francisco to help him. Only then does Alex reveal that there's another player who knows of the technology: Sarah Hosseini, a young Iranian-American lawyer who Alex has long secretly desired... and who Ben immediately distrusts. As these three radically different people struggle to identify the forces attempting to silence them, Ben and Alex are forced to examine the events that drove them apart—even as Sarah's presence, and her own secret wants, deepens the fault line between them.

A full-throttle thriller that is both emotionally and politically charged, Fault Line centers on a conspiracy that has spun out of the shadows and into the streets of America, a conspiracy that can be stopped only by three people—three people with different worldviews, different grievances, different motives. To survive the forces arrayed against them, they'll first have to survive each other.

Fault Line December 27, 2010
Reviewer: P. Sutton from Inglewood, West Australia  
This continues Barry Eisler’s books into the thriller genre and a great read.
It was hard to read to start with after reading the full Rain series as this was so different. Once into the book I enjoyed it and would recommend it to readers as a fast paced action thriller. I probably prefer the Rain books as I developed a real liking for Rain but as this series develops I can see it will be the same fast action series. Probably a lot more of this book is an explanation as to how the players all developed into what they are and a lot of going back as to the history of the family members. That is fine and is necessary to develop the characters and why they act a certain way. The first book of a series always has this component. The next book Fault Line is the second of the same series and at the end links ii into the Rain series as well.
A good read and worth taking the time to begin reading this series.
