Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Here’s a great book for anyone who enjoys stories involving covert agencies, international espionage and romantic suspense.
The latest installment in the Tarnished Heroes series from New York Times bestselling author Sidney Bristol.
Noah White has done a lot of bad things for the CIA, but this time they’ve crossed the line. He knows the kill order he’s been given is a set-up and the intended target is another covert agent. They’ve finally found a line Noah won’t cross. Not with her.
Lillian Matthews is living in the crosshairs and she knows it. While her friends are spread out over the globe gathering intelligence on a rogue covert agency, it’s her job to keep them all connected. Only now she’s the target. And her unlikely ally is the last man she’d expect.
Lillian will have to make the biggest sacrifice of her life, because Noah will stop at nothing to protect her.
Each book in the Tarnished Heroes series is STANDALONE:
* Spy Games
* Assassin Games
* Traitor Games
So who ensures the covert operators in organisations like the CIA actually obey the law and don’t work together for their own ends? In this fast paced but intricately detailed romantic suspense Noah White disobeys his order to kill Lillian Matthews, instead endeavouring to keep her safe from those out to assassinate her. This involves multiple international agencies, a rogue covert agency, blackmail, deceit, double crossing and plenty of action packed drama.
The story is part of a series but is written as a standalone so you don’t need to have read the earlier books to find yourself engrossed in this story. I hadn’t read the earlier books and suspect I might have found this a little less confusing if I had read about some of the diverse characters before. It isn’t a quick read, involves events and organisations in several different countries and the outcome is never certain. You’re never quite certain who to trust, who is working with you and who is against you, so get ready for plenty of surprises along the way. It is an engaging spy thriller with a side helping of romance, too.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
