The Berlin Package: A Thriller
Peter Riva (Author)
DescriptionA 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. Exhilarating and expertly crafted, The Berlin Package is a gripping, page-turning thriller set in post-German reunification Europe.
