The Russian Account, the latest Jake Grafton and Tommy Carmellini thriller from New York Times bestselling author Stephen Coonts, will hits bookstores on August 13th, 2019.
Interestingly enough, we actually announced this book back in June of 2018 when it was titled Devil’s Army and slated for release this spring. I was notified earlier in the year that Coonts’ novel was being pushed back, and have now confirmed that it’s been re-titled The Russian Account, given an official publication date for this summer, and received a new, slick-looking cover—which you can see below.
Stephen Coonts’ newest novel The Russia Account pits CIA officer Tommy Carmellini against a murderous, international financial conspiracy that leaves a trail of death and corruption, extending from a small bank in Estonia, to the highest reaches of the Kremlin, to the halls of the Congress, and perhaps even to the CIA itself — putting Admiral Jake Grafton, the head of the CIA, in the crosshairs of an assassin.
Burglar turned CIA warrior Tommy Carmellini has starred in eight previous Coonts’ thrillers, from Liars and Thieves to Coonts’ latest from Regnery, The Armageddon File. Realistic, passionate, in love with life, Tommy struggles in our turbulent age. Critics have labeled him a “hip, modern hero.” With the help of his mentor Jake Grafton, up to now Carmellini has always managed to foil his enemies. Discovering and defeating the powerful forces behind this massive, blood-stained financial conspiracy that threatens the very foundations of the United States government will be his most difficult challenge. Perhaps, he suspects, an impossible one.
The Russia Account is the third novel from Coonts released by Regnery, following Liberty’s Last Stand (2016), one of the most politically charged novels since Vince Flynn’s Transfer of Power, and The Armageddon File (2017), and returns both Jake Grafton and Tommy Carmellini for more action.
Coonts’ fans can pre-order his next thriller here, or anywhere else books are sold.
