Special Agent Miles Ronan’s father is on the FBI’s Most Wanted List in The Rio Affair by Micah Barnet. Miles is called in to identify a body in Brazil after a husband and wife are killed. The body on the morgue slab is his father Frank Ronan, who disappeared years ago. After stealing $50 million in cash, Frank abandoned his wife and son, never to be seen again. Frank’s new identity was Francesco Silva. Miles wants to put this chapter behind him and arrange with the coroner to cremate Frank. The coroner reveals that Miles has a teenage sister. Leticia disappeared on the night of her parents' murders and she is the only family that Miles has left. Miles must get to the bottom of Frank’s past and solve the mystery of Frank’s stolen millions to find Leticia.
Micah Barnet took me on a rollercoaster ride with all the twists and turns in The Rio Affair. It is intriguing and full of action. The plot moves at high speed from the start and it was a thrill to read. The plot is excellently executed and flowed well. The story is engaging and I was never sure what was going to happen next. I was in for a nail-biting experience and just kept turning the pages. The Rio Affair was hard to put down, even for a minute. The suspense had me on edge with the unexpected twists. There were multiple characters and they were well-developed. Each character played a role in this story. The tension builds up to an exciting end that I did not expect.
