Mark Sullivan

With the help of his team, Monarch breaks into the legendary Christmas party of Beau Arsenault, a shady investor and behind-the-scenes player at the very highest levels of power politics. Arsenault is not above bending or breaking the rules if there’s illicit profit to be made. Monarch has decided that those illicit profits will be better used to take care of orphans and street kids. 

Using the party as cover to break into Arsenault’s secret vaults, Monarch comes away with two unexpected things. One is a bullet—he gets shot when he’s caught trying to escape with tens of millions of negotiable instruments. The second is a lead on what might be his most audacious exploit ever.  A previously undiscovered tribe in South America may well have the secret to the most sought after knowledge in history—that of eternal life.  And Robin Monarch must use all his skills—as an operative, as a thief—to keep this secret from falling into the worst possible hands.

"Sullivan has crafted a remarkable antihero in Monarch, and the mix of action with thought provoking insight into what constitutes good or evil makes this a winner on every level." — Booklist, starred review

"Exciting...Sullivan puts a fresh spin on a familiar premise." — Publisher's Weekly
