John Seale finds himself in bed with a seductive woman, Maria. She sleeps while John is wired in a steamy hotel room in Barcelona. He is jumpy. Fireworks celebrating Saint Joan brought back the horrors of service in Syria. John is with the CIA, cybersecurity, but you would not know to look at him. In place of a stereotypical, pasty-faced nerd, the thirty-three-year-old agent is hard-ball muscle. A phone alert warns him of an incoming directive: wait for further instruction at the Viader Coffee Shop. An anchor on television news outlines a story about the Unranium One deal. Nothing in the story is new to John Seale. He leaves the hotel to face his first mission. Worse yet, he leaves to confront wretched misgivings of his own self-doubt.
The book takes modern events as a basis for a thriller that will cause even the most casual reader to binge read chapter after chapter. The characters are well developed, the dialogue realistic and the action is non-stop. This is easily the basis of the next Hollywood blockbuster.
