Fault Line: A Novel by Barry Eisler
When a client with a new encryption software (Obsidian) and the officer in charge of the patent application are both found dead, Alex Treven turns to his estranged brother for help after being threatened himself. His brother, Ben, is an assassin for the US Government who unwittingly finds himself back in the Bay Area to help his younger brother, who he has not spoken to in six years.
The story of the brothers' estrangement and family history is nicely mixed with the suspense and action of trying to hide and stay alive of those who would like to wipe all traces of Obsidian away. Very entertaining and fast paced, full of great Bay Area places that I am familiar with. Very fun to read and get lost in for an afternoon.
I got this book through Library Thing's Early Reviewers. The book will be released on March 10th.
