So begins the letter from one of Derek Stillwater's former lovers. The letter sends him to Moscow, Russia in search of the truth behind Irina Khournikova's death, and to meet a completely unexpected surprise - Derek's son. But Irina's comrades in the FSB, the Russian Intelligence Service, don't want Derek poking around in an active terrorism investigation.
As a favor to the Secretary of State, Derek is also tasked with investigating the suicide of a weapons inspector, but before he can get started, he finds himself in the middle of a terror attack on the U.S. Embassy. Something is very rotten in Russia - who to trust? Is there a leak in the U.S. State Department? A traitor in the Russian government who is trying to overthrow the Russian Federation?
And then an international assassin puts Derek in his cross-hairs and all bets are off as Derek teams up with FSB Agent Konstantin Nikitinov to stop a terrorist group calling itself The Red Hand from overthrowing the government. And then The Red Hand crosses the line - they kidnap Derek's son to stop his investigation.
But Derek Stillwater and Konstantin Nikitinov will stop at nothing - absolutely nothing - to get Lev back from the terrorists. And the two men are about to bring their own reign of terror down on the terrorists.

There may be no more exciting, compelling or believable series character in the techno-thriller genre today than author Mark Terry's Dr. Derek Stillwater. Stillwater is a troubleshooter for The Department Of Homeland Security. He's also a tough, no nonsense guy, a bit of a loner, and has little patients for red tape or procedure. Derek doesn't stand on protocol, he crushes its neck under his foot. Especially when it gets in the way of his goal, which is usually tracking down terrorists and foiling their destructive aims. But, he's no superman, and has plenty of human traits that make him as vulnerable as the man next door. But he is relentless and not the guy that terrorists want on their tale.
Because of Derek's relentlessness, he has often broken the rules in pursuit of the bad guys and he is not one to follow strict procedures or protocol. This gets him on the bad side of some of the inevitable political and power hungry overseers , associates and subordinates from time...
This is the fourth Derek Stillwater thriller I have read, to each I have given 4 stars, the only reason this particular one didn't receive 5 stars was simple editing errors and easy words misspelled in the latter part of the book. Sins of the Father was well conceived; it's not your average, easy to figure out book; it has a few surprises, good character development, and a spirit of cooperation between characters that is often humorous. All in all very enjoyable.
I have been enjoying the Derek Stillwater series. This one was fun to read. I liked the tie in with the son.
