Publisher's Summary

It’s the most important mission of his life - because it’s the most personal.

Once a key player in a clandestine CIA squad, Sam Callahan thought he had finally found a safe, normal life as a rookie lawyer in DC with the woman he loves. But when called to a covert intelligence mission in the heart of Russia, he can’t refuse risking it all once more. This time, he’d be joining his estranged father, the Lion, a deep-cover agent Sam never even knew existed.

When the operation goes wrong and his team is ambushed, Sam fears a setup. At least he escaped with his life. And so did his father. But why? With a target on his back, he must hunt down the truth behind the betrayal in Moscow - and find the Lion again.

Now, crisscrossing Europe under the cover of shadow, Sam is about to come face-to-face with his past - and it’s never looked so dangerous.

Great start but poor finish

The first chapters were full of action-packed excitement and a massacre of a safe house followed by a narrow a escape. Our hero Sam is chased over Moscow, Salzburg and southern France and then to London. In most locations he is hunted by a Russian assinator who had a machine pistol. In most of these chases he doesn't have a gun and the Ruscsciaxn so show knows where to find Sam in all these cities. In two of the narrow escapes with the Russian just 30 feet away from him he knows he can't move fast enough to run away from him but he does have time to jump into a nearby car a drive it at the Russian who manages to get four shots into the car and crashes around the next corner. At the end the CIA Director asked Sam to work for him as he feels Saxm in the smartest person he has ever seen. If he is the smartest and most brilliant operative he has seen then the VIA IS doomed. I will never read anything more by Zunker despite the many books he has about this Sam Callahan

Looking forward to the next book in this series

I appreciate this author. Always suspenseful and ties in nicely with the previous book. Also I really appreciate this author not thinking foul language adds to a book. This author writes a good story with clean language.

Satisfying Ending to Sam's Journey

3.5 Stars out of 5

I'm not exactly sure why, but this book did not live up to my memories of the prior two. It was still fast paced and a quick easy read, but I was never fully immersed in the story.

I actually listened on Audible and was not a great fan of the narrator, maybe that has something to do with it - I honestly don't know. But, it was a nice conclusion to an intriguing trilogy. Sam was and always has been, and extremely likable character, and luckily, that does not change. The author does leave it open for the potential of a continuation.
