Typical Morrell, opens fast but slows down a bit toward the end. It has a slightly more international feel than a lot of his books, as the latter portions are set in Japan. A decent thriller.

If you loved Morrell's Brotherhood of the Rose trilogy (Brotherhood of the Rose, Fraternity of Stone, League of Night & Fog), you'll enjoy this tale of a body guard/protector. Savage is wronged by his agency and he's looking for answers. The Fifth Profession is heavily themed with the Japanese samurai story 47th Ronin. A page-turner!

From the back of the book "Two masters of protection. One desperate mission.

Savage, a former Navy SEAL and American state-of-the-art security specialist. Akira, Japan's most brilliant executive protector and a master of the samurai arts.

Their mission: the retrieval of Rachel Stone, a beautiful American woman whose ruthless billionaire husband is out to destroy her. But quickly Savange and Akira realize they are trapped in a mission more far-reaching than teh protection of one person.

For they are bound together in a common nightmare, a set of horrifying memories, a terrifying past that never happened, but is somehow inexpolicably real. Only together can they confront the mystery. Yet when they do, an even more chilling scenario awaits them - one with the power to shatter not only their world, but ours as well."
