Rip Crew

Rip Crew

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

Valentine Pescatore, the former U.S. 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.

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.

Reviews

An astonishingly impressive debut from an investigative journalist with a sharp eye for the duplicity that stalks the border between the U.S. and Mexico...a taut, lean and satisfying thriller that lingers in your mind long after you've finished it.
Daily Mail on Triple Crossing
An honest and engrossing journey into a world of violence and corruption . . . Rotella knows how the police work, how the criminals operate and how bribes and violence subvert the law. He employs a journalist's sharp eye and a novelist's deft touch to give us a rich portrait of the sights, smells, sounds, beauties, and dangers of life south of the border.
Washington Post on Triple Crossing
A remarkable first novel . . . The pounding action scenes are driven by Rotella's ferocious prose style.
New York Times Book Review on Triple Crossing
Rotella is an expert on the vicious anarchy of Mexican crime and politics...His balance of intimate storytelling and operatic scale is stunning.
Daily Telegraph on Triple Crossing
This is one of the most accomplished first novels I have ever read. Triple Crossing is full of dangers, deep characters and a story writ on a grand scale.
Michael Connelly on <i>Triple Crossing
I read like a zealot....The story got me in a chokehold as the characters grew more and more complex and Rotella's style thickened and boiled and bubbled.
NPR on The Convert's Song
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 EX
A rousing thriller with heart and heartbreak...Rotella's prose is vivid and precise, his sense of setting sharply illuminating.
LA Times on The Convert's Song
Excellent . . . Rotella ratchets up the action with an absorbing look at international politics.
Publishers Weekly (starred) on The Convert's Song
The Convert's Song hooked me from its opening scene and kept me hooked to the very end. Sebastian Rotella has written a novel filled with suspense and intrigue, as well as real-world insights into those who commit terrorist acts and those who try to stop them.
Ron Rash, author of Serena, on The Convert's Song
The Convert's Song is a revelation. Sure, it's a smart, gripping thriller that will have you turning the pages at high speed. But it's also a deep, emotionally resonant story of identity, friendship, and faith. . . . I loved it.
Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street, on The Convert's Song
