I have loved every book that I have read from this author and this was no exception. This was absolutely a wonderful, action packed spy thriller. I found myself reading so fast that I would have to backtrack to see what I missed, but I couldn't slow down because I was so anxious about what would happen next. I loved the characters and was especially glad that we were able to get things all tied up wi ...more

I have really enjoyed Dugoni's Tracy Crosswhite series so when I saw a new book from him I jumped on the chance to get an ARC from netgalley.
The blurb describes this book as a spy novel, but its really 60% spy novel and 40% courtroom drama. This complete change was a bit of a turnoff for me and I would have enjoyed the book a lot more if it had stayed in the spy genre and explored those topics instead of turning into legal proceedings. The main lawyer, David Sloane, is ...more

Replete with action, gizmos and spy-speak, the critically-acclaimed author showcases the full range of his tremendous talent, and pens a spy thriller - a genre beyond the bounds of his prior work.
Although the plot morphs into a legal thriller in the last third of the book, in the style of the author's "David Sloane" legal series, the secret agent stuff is quite credible, opens a new level of excitement for his readers, and is quite a departure from ...more
When everyone has something to lose, no one can be trusted.
Robert Dugoni steps out from under his Tracy Crosswhite series into a politically charged new novel. The characters were bold and bolstered an unpredictable plot between the American CIA and the Russian FGB. While the narrative started out slow to build, it was short lived. The story soon wraps the reader up in a riveting guessing game. Each character is well crafted in their own right ...more

I was given this book from NetGalley for an honest review -

His former chief asks him to find a Russian agent - but when Jenkins finds a totally different situation he must find a way to escape.
This is a book you won't want to miss -
