This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
The Jefferson Club, a private resort for the uber-rich is taken over during a New Year's celebration. The members and invitees are a who's who of the Fortune Magazines richest people in the world. An supposedly anti-globalist group, led by General Anarchy, enter the grounds during a raging blizzard on New Year's Eve. They seem to have inside information. There is a gap of about two seconds following a power failure before back-up generators kick in. During this brief time the anti-globalist forces infiltrate the resort. The security chief of the resort eludes capture but his triplets do not. Several of the businessmen are put on trial. The "trial" is streamed live on the internet and people are invited to vote on the verdict. Three are sadistically executed. Who is the turncoat who has betrayed their fellow tycoons? ( )

Triple Cross is like a cross between a David Baldacci and Robert Ludlum. It reads like an action movie. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312378505, Hardcover)

"TRIPLE CROSS is a smart, prescient thriller that makes one wonder why the bottom really dropped out of the stock market.  The story snaps and twists like a cracking whip, you can't help but root for Mickey Hennessey and his kids, and I defy you to guess the ending.  Mark T. Sullivan has written a super-charged bestseller and surefire motion picture!" --Robert Crais

    The Jefferson Club is a remote, private resort for the super-rich – the buildings, the amenities, and the security are state of the art and beyond compare.  Many of the world’s wealthiest people – business leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians, celebrities – gather for the most exclusive New Year’s Eve party in the world.  As expensive champagne flows and multibillion dollar deals are arranged, the unimaginable happens – a highly trained, heavily armed paramilitary force calling itself the Third Position Army breaches the world’s best security system and takes everybody hostage.

     “Mickey” Hennessey, former U.S. Special Agent, is the head of security for the Jefferson Club.  A divorced father of three teenagers, he’s spending the holiday with his kids.  When the club is attacked, his entire team is wiped out and only he makes it out of the club alive.  Now he’s outside while his kids are trapped inside, hostages of the Third Position Army who are putting seven of the ten richest men on “trial” for their crimes against humanity, live on the internet for the world to see.  While a top FBI rescue team works feverishly to rescue all the hostages, Hennessey is determined to do all he can, to overcome  every obstacle, to ensure his children’s safety – or die trying.
