                                                Horns of the Devil

The beheaded body of an ambassador’s son is dumped on the curb in front of his father’s embassy just blocks from the White House. Federal prosecutor Jeff Trask and an FBI task force are called upon to solve the murder. Their search for the killers leads to the MS-13, a hyper-violent gang from El Salvador, but Trask and his team soon learn that someone else is also tracking their suspects, and with deadly efficiency. When Trask himself becomes a target, he realizes that he is caught in a cross-fire between two of the most ruthless organizations in the western hemisphere. Author Marc Rainer brings more than three decades of investigative and prosecutorial experience to this follow-up to his hit novel "Capital Kill." "Horns of the Devil" provides a view into one of the most deadly organized crime threats facing the United States today, and takes the reader on a gripping ride through murder investigations complicated by Washington politics and international intrigue.

Horns of the Devil is an immense and immersive rollercoaster ride of heart-stopping suspense with fully realized characters who will live and breathe in your imagination with vitality, Five enthusiastic stars! Don't miss this one! -- TopShelf Magazine 


Federal prosecutor Jeff Trask returns to work on a case involving Salvadoran gang members.  Trask is an engaging lead character: His extraordinary intelligence and eidetic memory are the same reasons he sometimes has trouble concentrating. Rainer also turns the spotlight on other, equally gripping characters. A well-paced mystery featuring an entertainingly complicated protagonist, supported by a robust cast. Kirkus Reviews.

Another great thriller by Marc Rainer. With an author who doesn't hesitate to harm a character, either major or minor, it keeps you on  your toes wondering if the killers might just win this time. An intriguing  story with great characters in real danger. Like any good thriller, it kept you  guessing until the very end. If you love a good thriller, I recommend giving this new author a chance. Editor, EBookObsessed.

With Horns of the Devil, author Marc Rainer has given us another brilliant ride, a genuinely suspenseful book full of intrigue and  action, the twists often leaving the reader in fear for the characters they've come to love. The command Mr. Rainer has over his material, the pure writing skill on view, not only keeps things flowing, but never lets it seem that any of what is going on is less than real. The story goes along in a thrilling way, right until the end, where there is one  more twist waiting. The whole tale is unnerving and great fun. Highly recommend it. Palmetto Reviews.
