Publisher's Summary

One man broken-hearted by his wife's brutal slaying...one nuclear device primed to destroy the city of Paris...one chance to save over two million lives. Can Perry Hall set aside his grief long enough to prevent the unthinkable?

After his wife was slain by a sadistic assassin, SpyCo agent Perry Hall stopped caring whether he lived or died. Nothing mattered, save binge drinking and caring for his bulldog, Fleming. His disdain for life-threatening operations makes him an asset to Director J. Carlton Moore, who sends Perry into the most dangerous situations to ever face the covert organization. So, when the City of Lights faces extinction at the hands of the world's most feared terrorist group, Perry emerges as the only hope for over two million innocent civilians.

Another great spy novella...

The authors, Craig A. Hart and S. J. Varengo, are masters at packing so much action and adventure (as well as a touch of humor) into such compact stories. This is the second SpyCo novella and features a different main character than the first, but there are common characters which tie the two stories together. I think they, at least so far, can be read as standalones or enjoyed as an ongoing series. In this installment we get to tag along as a psychologically challenged agent, reeling from the loss of his wife, is thrust into a scenario in which the fate of Paris is dropped into his hands. As a well-trained and accomplished operative, he is able to get his act together, quell his burgeoning alcohol problem, and step up to perform at a level we armchair adventurers live to vicariously enjoy. The addition of his dog, Fleming, as a character was an inspired stroke of genius as he adds so much charisma and humor to the otherwise adrenalin-laden, deadly serious sequence of events. (Reminiscent of John Wick but with a small and delightful touch of comic relief). I shall forever be a fan of the fabulous (and frequently flatulent) fabulous Fleming. I chose to read along as I listened to the audio version of this book and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The narrator, Richard Peterson, offered a brilliant performance that served to complement this highly entertaining tale. Without reservation, I can recommend this book to all enthusiasts of action, adventure, and spycraft.

While I did purchase a copy of this book, the author gifted me with a code for the audio version and the above is my honest and unbiased review.

If you find this review helpful, thank you for so indicating.

Assignment: PARIS

As with his Serenity series, Craig A. Hart knows how to tell a brisk, action-packed tale.

In Assignment: Paris, we follow Perry Hall, a SpyCo agent haunted by the death of his wife. When he’s called to Paris for a new assignment, he’ll not only have to stop a nuclear device from detonating, but also go head-to-head with his wife’s killer. The ending was a bit of a “Deus Ex Machina” for me, but nonetheless, it wrapped up nicely, and I’m anxious to read more in the series.
