Carl Logan is a covert operative working for the Joint Intelligence Agency.
Logan is also a damaged man, described as ‘unhinged and unstable’ by one of his unsympathetic bosses. There’s a reason he’s not the man he once was – Logan has been damaged by a run-in with a terrorist named Selim and it’s left him anxious, traumatised and questioning the meaning behind his work.
Most of the story is made up of the chase to find kidnapped American Attorney General Modena. The action takes us from Paris to New York and to rural France. Logan teams up with an FBI Agent, Angela Grainger.
He’s got revenge on his mind as it turns out Selim might be involved in Modena’s kidnapping.
Grainger also has other motivations for her involvement that will play out later in the book.
Full of action and with a rising body count, the plot gallops along.
Logan and Grainger make a good team, and a romance begins between them.
There are some scenes where Logan’s luck, and over use of muscle and gunmanship, make it a tad hard to swallow, but overall this was an entertaining read. The emotion works well as we realise that the ulterior, dark motives of both Logan and Grainger might be set to derail both their romance and the main operation to save Modena…
At the beginning of the book, I didn’t much like Logan but about half way through I was completely on side. I think that’s because he comes across as a moral man with terrible choices to make. For that, he had my sympathies.
Overall an easy and entertaining read.
