The Fifth Rule. Reef becomes the centre of controversy while he tries to rebuild his reputation and his relationship with Leeza, the only girl he has ever loved. Reef and Leeza’s frustrated love story and Reef’s justifiable anger at the manipulative politician Decker are the emotional threads that propel readers through the plot. The climax involves Reef’s going to confront Decker while Leeza races to stop him, and Aker uses short chapters alternating between the characters to keep readers on the edges of their seats. There is no need to have read The First Stone in order to enjoy The Fifth Rule – it stands alone perfectly well- , but anyone who has read the original book will definitely want to read this conclusion to Reef and Leeza’s story. This book will appeal to older readers looking for suspenseful realistic fiction.
