From the author of the bestselling Beneath a Scarlet Sky comes the latest adventure of Robin Monarch
"Action-packed...Comparisons to Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne series are justified." -Associated Press
In Outlaw, the U.S. Secretary of State and the foreign ministers of China and India have been kidnapped. The "Sons of Prophecy" take responsibility and issue an ultimatum: If their demands are not met in seven days, the three will be beheaded live on the Internet. With the presidential election in only eight days, The President has few options-he can't meet their demands and he can't let them be executed. In desperation, he calls upon former CIA operative and master thief Robin Monarch.
"Sullivan has created a fine adventure-thriller hero in Monarch...The action and the surprises are nonstop."-Booklist
Monarch and his Chinese counterpart, a mysterious agent named Song Le, embark upon a dangerous journey into the underbelly of Southeast Asia, a world of corrupt Vietnamese Army officers, fanatical pirates, Hong Kong triad leaders, and volatile mercenaries living around the red light districts of Thailand. As they get closer and closer, with time quickly running out, Monarch learns that the diabolical kidnapping and ransom plot is only a front-one that reaches deep into the most sacred corridors of power...from which there is no escape...

I read a great deal - often with more than one book on-the-go (typically one fiction yarn and another non-fiction heavyweight). So I'm suspecting that for whatever reason, I'm probably the variable that's changed.
Rather than being dissatisfied, I think I probably found something else that caught my attention and so I wandered off down a different pathway.
Would I recommend buying the book? I've you've read the previous work and enjoyed it, I'd certainly suggest it's worth getting (even better would be to preview some of the book and make your own mind up).
Would I not recommend buying it? No, there's nothing that makes this in any way a "poor" or "bad" story.
There are far less enjoyable books that have cost me a lot more - so, for my final verdict? It's remaining in my reader - I'll go back later and either finish it or re-read (and I suspect, I'll probably enjoy it immensely).
There needs to be an editor to correct some grammatical/spelling errors that hurt the flow while reading.
