The Rhythm Section
The international espionage thriller soon to be a major motion picture starring Jude Law and Blake Lively.
Stephanie Patrick's life is destroyed by the crash of flight NEO027. Her family was on board and there were no survivors. Devastated, her life spins out of control--until a journalist discovers that the crash wasn't an accident. There was a bomb planted on the plane. With nothing left to lose, she focuses on one goal: revenge. Stephanie is recruited by an extremely covert intelligence organization offering her a deal. She must undergo rigorous training; learn how to control her heart rate and breathing ("the rhythm section"); and learn how to efficiently use weapons. Then, she will assume a new identity and commit acts of terrorism on behalf of the organization. When she proves her loyalty she will be offered the opportunity to take out the terrorists who brought down flight NEO027. She enters the brutal world of international espionage, and adapts quickly. But as the stakes get higher, Stephanie begins to question what her value really is. Is the organization telling her the truth--or are they using her for some other agenda? More important: Is avenging her family worth the price she is paying? And if it isn't--will the organization that created her let her go?
