A CIA analyst makes a split-second decision that endangers her country but saves her son – and now she must team up with an answer – hungry journalist she’s not sure she can trust in this electrifying thriller.
Nothing gets by Jill Bailey. As a CIA analyst, she’s in charge of investigating and vetting new sources. Sources like FALCON, who’s been on the fast track to recruitment.
He says he’s a Syrian defence official attached to a covert biowarfare program – and with a global pandemic fresh in their minds, CIA officials are desperate to use him. It’s Jill’s job to make sure he is who he claims to be, and that his case workers in the field haven’t been duped – or coerced.
But before she can get to work, she gets a call. One that’s every parents nightmare. We have your son. And to get him back, Jill does something she thought she’d never do. As it turns out, she isn’t the only with questions about FALCON.
Alex Charles, a journalist eager to break the next big story, begins to investigate an anonymous tip: an explosive claim about the CIA’s hottest new source. This is the story Alex has been waiting for. The tip – and a fierce determination to find the truth – leads Alex to Jill. Who would rather remain hidden.
As the two begin to work together, they uncover a vast conspiracy that will force them to confront their loyalties to family and country.
First of all I would like to thank NetGalley and the Publisher for my copy of the Ebook in exchange for my honest review.
What a book this was, this is definitely my favourite read of the year so far… thrown into the story straight at the deep end from the first chapter leaving you hooked and unable to put the book down, and it only delves you deeper as the pages turn.
The story follows main character Jill with the events that lead after she is forced to make a ‘mistake’ on purpose at work or risk her sons life. Running from her problems didn’t help and they only got a lot worse very quickly.
If you love a thrilling, page turner that you can not put down, this book is definitely for you.
