This author sure can spin a yarn! CIA Fall Guy is exactly my kind of book, enough action and intrigue to keep you guessing the whole time, with a decent sprinkling of romance and relationships to keep you turning the pages.
The book is well written, and very fast paced, there are times when it seems almost a little too fast, the words spat out at machine gun pace, but that I think is the skill of the author, the more you read, the more you want to read, so the faster you read!
I enjoyed the characters, the main protagonists have characters which are well fleshed out and believable, and it was great that they were not 25 and perfect!
The story centres around Beth Parsons, the widow of an american Soldier killed in Munich some years prior, Beth herself was at the time working for US Military Intelligence Group. So when she is asked to go and help identify a German man claiming payment for years of service to the CIA she goes without too many suspicions. However all is not right, and after her driver is found dead, and Beth herself escapes from the locked apartment of Kathleen, the female intelligence officer tasked with babysitting her, the adventure begins; and Beth is very quickly faced with the decision of whether or not to trust the man who may have been involved in her husband's death as the two of them race against the clock, after travelling to Germany (and not by first class!) to unravel what I happening around them.
At times the story does fall in the category of way too unbelievable, with Beth being able to fight off CIA agents with her karate skills!
Beth and David's burgeoning relationship is well written, playing well alongside the rest of the book, without overpowering the story.
If you like a good fast paced spy thriller without too much technical stuff to bore you then this book is great, its a little like CIA Spy Thriller Lite, in that it doesn’t delve too deeply into the real boys toys spy stuff, but sticks to the story.
All in all, its well worth a read, and well worth the four razberries!
