Book Review - Targets of Revenge

About the Book

All the bureaucratic scolding in Washington cannot stop resourceful CIA Agent Jordan Sandor when he’s hungry for revenge. This time he’s on the hunt for the cold-blooded sociopath known as Adina, whose indiscriminate slaughter of innocent people, including Sandor’s close friend, represents man at his worst.

Mobilizing a team of skilled and dedicated agents to carry out his secret operation, Sandor flies in the face of his superiors’ stern warnings—ultimately crash-landing in the heart of the Venezuelan jungle. Armed with little more than a combat knife and a deadly automatic weapon, he infiltrates Adina’s camp and discovers that the ruthless terrorist is smuggling not only cocaine into the United States, but also a deadly substance that could cost tens of thousands of lives.

Sandor develops intel that leads him to Egypt and then Moscow as he fights to prevent this disaster, but after he lands on Interpol’s list of international fugitives, the truth becomes clear: Adina’s evil web extends to the far corners of the globe. Meanwhile, someone Sandor trusts could very well be feeding the agent dangerous lies as he struggles to stay on Adina’s trail.

More focused than ever, Sandor refuses to end his perilous mission, even after he has been taken captive. In the end, when he uncovers the realities of Adina’s deranged plan for a catastrophic assault on New York City, Sandor has no choice but to risk his life to protect his country’s safety and freedom.

My Take on the Book
I have had the opportunity to read the other books in this series and have loved them! So you can guess that I probably had high expectations of this book is well. In reading this book I found myself, as in the other books, being drawn in very quickly to the plot. What a enjoyed most about the book was its high action, adventure, intrigue, and how the author brings together a cast of characters that on the surface are very different and turn these characters into ones in which you hope to see again in the future. The plot of the story is intense and it keeps you at the edge of your seat. As someone who is a fan of high adventure stories this book is one that will definitely keep you coming back for more. All-in-all this book was an amazing read and is one that I would highly recommend all fans of adventure, mystery, and intrigue to pick up at your local store or online today!
