Edge of the Abyss by Robert Fisher is a novel that manages to pack together a poignant love story and a thriller that will keep you glued to the book for hours. Three months have passed since Simon Kane decided to pursue Networc, the organization that was behind the murder of his wife Sheila. Simon and Sheila were agents at Silhouette until Sheila was shot right in front of him by the Networc’s mysterious agent, Counselor Black, while both were on a mission in Belarus. Meanwhile, Mai, the daughter of Lin Yunao, the leader of the Heise She li Triad, the largest criminal organization in Asia, is kidnapped and taken to an island ruled by criminals and madmen and is in big trouble. The two will eventually cross paths when Simon is recruited to rescue her.

Robert Fisher's Edge of the Abyss is a fast-paced thriller that takes readers into the dark, mysterious world of undercover agents and criminal organizations and it is an exhilarating read. The main protagonists of the story come from two completely different worlds, forced to be together as they face the edge of the abyss, figuratively speaking. Simon Kane is obsessed with exacting revenge for the death of his wife and this makes him an interesting and sympathetic character. Mai, on the other hand, is a humanitarian who has helped hundreds of people in war-torn countries so anyone will easily feel empathy for her character. Add to this mixture the story's numerous twists and turns and the result is a novel that is more than worthy of the time you spend reading it!
