Right from the first few minutes this book held my attention. The story always moved along. CIA thief Tommy Carmellini is quite an interesting charact..Show More »er. Sometime I had to laugh a the character...
The plot although pure fiction is based on a historical defection.
If you like Thommy Cormellini character, you will probably like books by Lee Child (main character Jack Reacher) and books by Vince Flynn (character Mitch Rapp, et al.).
I got a kick out of this book. The author has a great sense of humor and the reader read the lead character with bravado and pizazz. The plot is timel..Show More »y and it was nice to get some perspective on European (French) politics and what it's like in Paris.
It's a fast paced book and read at a fast pace, so things move quickly and it's easy to get a little lost in the plot, but it all comes together in the end.
The book is what it is, mind candy, so don't expect any real depth or insight into Al-Qaida, just a fun spy novel with likable unidimensional characters, a romance, and plenty of action.
Another fine book from Coonts. I found this book just as entertaining as I have all the Jake and Tommy adventures. Coonts has changed his style somewh..Show More »at over the years and I like it. Of course his works are fiction and he can do what ever he wants but he has toned down the oh sure factor. The Disciple has just the right amount of wait a minute this might happen in it.
This was a waste of a credit. I have read all of his books and Coonts is one of my very favorite authors. I think this is the worst book he has done..Show More ». The story was not that interesting and the narration was irritating. If you like Coonts, you will be disappointed with this book!
At age 70 author Stephen Coonts is getting better! His two releases this year are his best novels ever and are on par with the very best of the espio..Show More »nage thriller genre. First there was this novel The Art of War then Liberty's Last Stand. Both are in the Tommy Carmellini series. The suspense is intense and sustained. Narration Eric G Dove matches the high quality of the novel. I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this novel!
