Book Summary

Maverick agent Valentine Pescatore investigates a brutal killing that leads him across borders and reveals a vast conspiracy of wealth and power terrifyingly close to home.

Valentine Pescatore, the dashing ex-U.S. Border Patrol agent, finds himself back on American soil, investigating the merciless killing of a group of women in a motel room. At first, the crime seems to be a straightforward case of gangsters battling for territory. Soon, however, the motive is revealed to be much deeper and more sinister: a single witness who knows too much is being hunted, at any cost.

From an author who has been praised for his "pounding action scenes [and] ferocious prose style" (Marilyn Stasio, NYTBR), RIP Crew races at breakneck speed as Pescatore finds himself face-to-face with his most terrifying assignment yet.

Media Reviews

"Starred Review. Rotella's latest is a tense, gritty thriller--perfectly seedy when it needs to be and near-perfect in its overall execution." - Kirkus

"Rotella writes convincingly about the realities and mechanics of investigative journalism, and his detailed action scenes add just enough mayhem to keep thriller readers on the edge of their seats." - Publishers Weekly

"Rip Crew is a taut, tense international thriller, filled with complex characters and gritty dialogue. Utterly riveting." - Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of The Wife
