Tripoli's Target

Tripoli's Target by Ethan Jones

I am happy to say I am one of a privileged few to have an advanced copy to read and review.  I hope you all are as excited as I was to read this great book.

It’s time to travel with our Special Agent in the Canadian Intelligence Service, Justin Hall again.  First, we froze with him while he was saving the world in the arctic in “Arctic Wargame”.  Now, in a cruel twist of fate, or maybe his boss, Claire Johnson, just has a sad sense of humor, we now travel to the heat of the desert in Tripoli.

Justin Hall and his partner Carrie O’Connor have been sent to Tripoli.  As in any good spy thriller, you never know who you can trust or what to believe.  Ever since 9/11, the world has known suicide bombers and the devastation they cause.  What was the mission this time?  More land rights, control over oil, assassination of a world leader?  Why does Justin always seem to be in the middle of the action, or the cause of it?  Justin reminds me of a James Bond character, always trying to do the good thing, but always seems to take the worst in a fight.

Every turn Justin and Carrie take is met with difficulties, from every side possible, including their own organization.  Who to trust, what to do, in an effort to keep the world leaders safe in their meeting, even if it means disobeying direct orders and taking on the enemy by themselves.

Will Justin save the day again?  Travel along with Justin and Carrie and you’ll imagine yourself sweating along with them as the author does a great time of the descriptions of the areas they travel.  You’ll have to read for yourself and see if Justin survives the heat of the desert, and the heat of the enemy.
