My favorite part of Never by Ken Follettwas almost a step-by-step telling of how on-the-ground intelligence impacts national policy
The stars of this book are the characters, which I feel I can say for the whole series. They are interesting, as well as intelligent
A terrorist group took over a 100 hostages in Vienna. The rescue attempt went horribly wrong. CIA Vienna branch believes the inside breach was in their office.
With all the action and adventure, this is ultimately a melancholy book. Allon is a flawed hero (but aren’t they all), who is, this time, out for revenge
Members of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service sent to rescue a group of archaeologists from Iraq they come face to face with several surprises
Then terror strikes in Empire City, The Fixer and Stack go on a rage fueled mission after those responsible.
White “The Memorist” is a bit slower than the previous novel, I thought the story was more interesting, the characters are more fleshed out
The plot of A Death in Vienna by Daniel Silva is full of twists and turns, a wonderful cast of characters, worldly events and double crossing figures
“The Death Instinct” by Jed Rubenfeld is a fictional thriller set in the 1920’s. The book centers around the historical Wall St. bombing of 1916.
The pace is fast but the story is predictable, about half way through (if not sooner) I already figured out the ending which, this time, had no twists.
