    Story
    (103)

    When CIA "fixer" Micah Dalton's friend and mentor turns up dead, he's put on a collision course with a killer who has a penchant for intricate knife-work and Native American mysticism, a sadist who is killing ex-CIA agents. The victims are hard-nosed field men whose only link to one another seems to be a global surveillance operation called Echelon. The murders appear to be acts of retribution. But for what?

    Overall

    David Stone has a winner with his debut novel The Echelon Vendetta. Introducing a new kind of hero/villian/company man, Stone creates a likable, complex character in Micah Dalton. With chapters from Italy to New Mexico, Stone does well in defining a CIA we all know exists. From high tech gadgetry, to Native American folklore, Stone weaves a story of international intrigue and suspense that will keep you guessing and second guessing his storyline. While some parts are admittedly gruesome, I found the manner of writing refreshing and new in a world lacking since the death of Ludlum. Stone is definitely a writer for the new age, and will not disapoint those of us who tire of the same old "espionage novel" wrapped in different places and characters. Be prepared to be impressed. Looking forward to Stone's follow up ....

    Vanessa “Michael” Munroe deals in information - expensive information - working for corporations, heads of state, private clients, and anyone else who can pay for her unique brand of expertise. Born to missionary parents in lawless central Africa, Munroe took up with an infamous gunrunner and his mercenary crew when she was just fourteen. As his protégé, she earned the respect of the jungle's most dangerous men, cultivating her own reputation for years until something sent her running. After almost a decade building a new life and lucrative career from her home base in Dallas, she's never looked back. Until now....

    Overall

    Vanessa "Michael" Munroe is one of the first female characters to have it all. Most attempts at writing a woman into a leading role in espionage/spy/mystery novels always seems to be missing key elements that make her beleivable, or alternatively, feminine. Stevens' character has all of the well rounded attributes of the classic hero/anti-hero. The build up is slow but steady, and the storyline sufficient to carry the book through to its fantastic end. I hope to see more of Michael Munroe.
