Jan 20, Caterpillar rated it it was ok Recommends it for: It was an interesting read. I hadn't realised it was a sequel but I was still able to keep up with the characters and events so I'd say it's not necessary to have read the first one though it might help form connection to the characters.
It obviously wasn't a perfect book and there were part I had I read a couple times to understand what's going on and somethings seemed to happen too quickly for either the sake of the plot or then for no reason at all and just felt stupid and out of place. Overal It was an interesting read. Overall it was a nice read that I thought would make quite a good action film if they changed some parts. Dec 23, Toni added it.

Double-agents from Russia and China. An American woman caught in the middle. Russia remains exceedingly dangerous and has embarked on an aggressive plan to regain its status as a military superpower. As a result, we get to experience political turmoil and military strategy from the perspective of a non-American. Yuri Kirov, disillusioned with Russia because it abandoned him after a failed mission, is living as an American, alias John Kirkwood, and works as a consultant at Northwest Subsea Dynamics, part of Cognition Consultants, an American world-class IT company.
A United States Secret Service agent faces a conflict of interest between protecting the presidential candidate and respecting the findings of the Nuremberg Trial which upheld the call of conscience over blind obedience. Somehow, he must decide whether his professional commitment is an infinite moral value or subject to his conscience.
The agent has probable cause to believe that his principal is the son of a Nazi fugitive. If elected president, is he liable to use his powers to protect his father? Or worse still, infiltrate neo-Nazis into the highest levels of the US government? And then, to cap it all, the Secret Service agent meets a ravishing Israeli secret agent who is determined to stop the candidate from becoming president.
The story kicks off in , with a low-level CIA official discovering a cover-up that has lethal consequences. Helen is a capable woman but she doubts herself, mostly because she has grown accustomed to being underestimated. He also has a wife, a teenaged kid, a mortgage, and all the mundane problems associated with life. Doing his best to maintain his vows to his wife, Dick struggles to deal with the inexperience and provocative attitude of Ace on her first non-European mission.
Award-winning author Donald J. All the while, neither Hunter nor LaRue understand that a new threat—the Iranian threat—has entered the game. As stakes rise, two shadowy players are one-step ahead of Hunter—Khalifah, a dangerous terrorist mastermind, and Caine, a nomadic assassin who only dances with the highest bidder.
As the attacks escalate and the country drifts toward another Middle East war, innocent refugees become the victims between the terrorists and the terrorized. The Big Thrill caught up to T. By Heidi Ruby Miller. A runner, traveler, and journalist, Karpov always finds inspiration from the outdoors, which is why he initially plans his books at the beach.
Some of those books are for HarperCollins as part of the Bowers-Hunter mystery series, which he pens under the name James Lilliefors. Since Karpov is a career journalist who is used to working with facts, I wondered where the line is between fiction and non-fiction in a novel like this. In truth, of course, Russia itself has now been tied to the attack. I used those details and fictionalized them in the novel.
His opponent is a man of many deadly skills and disguises. And the chase extends from Hawaii to New York City, culminating in a countdown to unimaginable destruction that only Laker can prevent. And when it comes to the espionage genre, Lutz says his characters will be doing BIG bad things. Lutz likes unique heroes, both independent and self-reliant. His earlier series characters were private investigators in one-man agencies and retired cops who were so good the NYPD had to call them back to work.
Its agents are experienced people with illustrious reputations in intelligence circles that open doors closed to everyone else. They work on their own, flying under the radar. Laker reports to his tough-as-nails boss, Sam Mason, but luckily Mason has as much disdain for routine methods as he does. In a Manhattan safe house, Nora Baron—a Long Island mother and drama teacher leading a double life as a CIA operative—meets a spymaster who offers her a top-secret mission.
Nora is to take on the role of Chris Waverly, a legend in the field—literally. Now, a mysterious ransom note threatens these agents with exposure and certain death. But from the start, the mission is more dangerous than she could have anticipated.
Imagine Bin Laden meets Bernie Madoff—and hold on for the ride. While Kyle Achilles responds to a mysterious summons from the man who forced him out of the CIA, his former partner suffers an outlandish assault. This month, Tigner took time from his schedule to answer a few questions for The Big Thrill. That initial experiment convinced me I had potential as a novelist, but I only acted on it six years later. By then I was living in Brussels, running European operations for a blue chip corporation.
We moved to Florida and lived off savings for the next five years while I wrote my first three novels. In , I self-published those three novels— Coercion , Betrayal, and Flash —after they spent six years collecting dust on my hard drive.
If our technology had worked better in clinical trials, those novels would likely still exist only as electrons. The validation gave me courage and confidence. I abandoned my business career to pursue my passion—for the second time in my life. But the Treaty will also establish Austrian neutrality, and many in the West fear it will secure Soviet hegemony in Eastern Europe and create a permanent division. Asked to help investigate the death of an Austrian aristocrat and Wehrmacht veteran, Baier discovers an ambitious plan not only to block the State Treaty, but also to subvert Soviet rule in lands of the old Hapsburg Empire.
Many of his basic assumptions are challenged, and he discovers that he cannot count on loyalties, even back home in Washington, D. At each maddening turn in the investigation, another layer must be peeled away. Even if Baier succeeds in rescuing his wife, he faces the unenviable task of unraveling an intricate web of intrigue that reaches far back into the complicated history of Central Europe. Terrence McCauley recently released his seventh published work including both novellas and novels and the third work in his James Hicks series featuring The University.

What made this the time or the novel where that was the right thing to do? Sympathy for the Devil and A Murder of Crows were books that firmly cement the idea of The University and Hicks in the mind of the readers. Knowing they had a good idea of what I was writing about gave me the freedom to expand my narrative to include points of view from other key players in the story.
It helped me vary the voice and the motivation to show the reader just how broad the world I had created really was. And the change in POV helped me tell the kind of complex story I wanted to tell without being too heavy-handed about it. Trey Carter, a young gay man still in the closet, is involuntarily recruited by the CIA to help in a dark ops targeting a former Soviet nuclear engineer. While there are two protagonists, they are not both heroic. Riz and Holly have been tasked with taking a jihadi prisoner to an MI6 facility in Portsmouth for debriefing.
So far, so routine. This one knows something, and that something has the CIA after them. Aloysius Wachter, a clandestine hacker forced by circumstances to turn amateur detective, recounts several of his adventures that begin with spotting a murder on his first night on the job at a city agency that monitors everyone and everything through a 10,camera system.
