As with the first two in the series, this thriller takes you on a fast-paced ride. Thanks to Good Reads I didn't have to wait for the release date in August.

Great story

This is a totally different story than usual. Very complicated and has many twists and turns. Keeps you turning the pages as you don't want to set it down.

Exciting, fast paced thriller. In America, in Israel, wherever. Husband and wife both working for government, but not really knowing what the other did, end up being stalked by Mossad. I recommend this book to people who enjoy action, deceit and power. I received this book from Goodreads for free.

I received this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I have never read any books by this author before so for me this was a very hard book to read and get caught up in. Maybe if I had read the other books in the series first it would have been easier to give a informed decision about the book. For me I was totally at a loss concerning the characters in the book and the storylines behind them I know the government does many things that are hidden behind the scenes that we will never know anything about. ...more

Thank you to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. Was unable to finish this book. I was excited by the premise but it was not fulfilled by the actual story. The writing was stilted and plodding. The characters are weak and undeveloped. The members of the 'Det' are seemingly not the operator types usually found in these types of books. Just could not stay with it.

Another Winner

Another superb adventure by David McCaleb. This issue contains a lot more action and a plot that doesn't become clear until nearly the very last page. Red's daughter Penny plays a pivotal role as she is finally brought into the true family fold. Definitely a superlative read.

Finished unanswered questions!

Good story! Help close up a lot of open story lines n the previous two books. I believe it’s a must to read the previous two books or your going to be lost! Lots of action!

The author has promise. I liked his use of idiom, but the characters are difficult to find a connection to & some of his sentences seem kinda disjointed & make for a difficult read sometimes. For this reason, the book took far longer to read than I would have liked. ...more

It’s difficult, even for an author, to script an interesting bio from chronological facts. Where’s the fun in reality? Maybe in the future I’ll spruce this up with fiction, but for now, you’ll have to endure the truth:
