Gabriel Jets is the CIA's top agent, a man with a reputation of getting the job done, no matter the price. On a rare visit back to the States, Jets is dispatched to collect a video depicting the kidnapping of four U.S. journalists working undercover in Damascus, Syria.
When a link between the video and a terrorist plot in Damascus is discovered, all evidence points to the involvement of another U.S. journalist, Amelia Sinclair, a prominent foreign correspondent who has direct ties to the missing journalists.
Despite the evidence, Agent Jets can’t shake the belief that Amelia is being framed to take the fall for something far bigger than either of them.
Abandoning his orders, he soon discovers a menacing plot is being orchestrated to draw the United States into an international scandal—and shatter the current presidency.
But Jets can’t trust anyone, and in the country he swore to protect, nowhere is safe.

I really liked the cover. It is very appealing designed. The writing style is pleasant and very fluently to read. The characters are very well described and look well thought out and consistently interesting. The tension is always present. The descriptions of surroundings, feelings and scenes were also very good. The story is told pleasant and it succeeds from the first pages to dive directly into the story. The storyline as a whole is very coherent and it seems very understandable and authentic. A very fascinating story that you won't like to stop reading.
This is pretty good, not great. It has all the right elements. It just didn't have the polish of more experienced authors. But still better than average. More focus on action than characters, if that's your thing. I hope the author continues to write. 3.5 stars. I really appreciate te review copy!!
This book jumps right into and never stops. I read it in just 2 days. There has to be some suspension of disbelief, as is often the case with spy thrillers but it was action packed. The romance piece turned me off a bit but it also added to the development of the motivations of the characters. I look forward to the next in the series. I was given a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an unbiased review.
The book opens with Amelia Sinclair receiving a video of four foreign journalists being kidnapped from their hotel in Damascus. Amelia is now on everyone list as the person to be taken out. They send in agent Gabriel Jets. When the two of them escape a room in Brooklyn Jets starts to wonder why someone else was there as well to take her out. Later when she is able to show him the entire video, he sees the discrepancies that she had seen from the beginning. After having his handler run through the video as well who comes to the same conclusion, you are now sent on an even higher paced and full of action story than what it was at the beginning. This book is full of espionage and different forces at play. One someone from the Whitehouse, and from somewhere else, so Jets must go dark by letting them think he is nowhere around. This just adds to the story so once you get started you won’t put it down until the end. A very good book.
