"All Cry Chaos," a debut thriller by the immensely gifted
Leonard Rosen, is a masterful and gripping tale that literally
reaches for the heavens. On the eve of a long-scheduled speech at a
World Trade Organization meeting, mathematician James Fenster is
assassinated. The hit is as elegant as it is bizarre. Fenster's
Amsterdam hotel room is incinerated, yet the rest of the building
remains intact. The murder trail leads veteran Interpol agent Henri
Poincare' on a high-stakes, world-crossing quest for
answers.Together with his chain-smoking, bon vivant colleague,
Serge Laurent, Poincare' pursues a long list of suspects. He
begins to make progress in America, but there is a vicious hatred
trained on him--left over from a terrifying former genocide
case--and he is called back to Europe to face the unfathomable.
Stripped down and in despair, tested like Job, he realizes the two
cases might be connected--and he might be the link.
