Covert CIA agent Dan Gordon is used to sleeping with one eye open, but when his new assignment lands him in the dangerous crosshairs of international clandestine warfare, subterfuge reaches a whole new level.
Gordon’s latest task is to rendezvous with a high-ranking Iranian General integral to the country’s nuclear weapons program who plans to defect with a trove of state secrets, but when the general doesn’t show, the night ends in a maelstrom of confusion and gunfire, leaving Dan bruised, bloodied, and with more questions than answers.
As a former Mossad-agent-turned-lawyer, Dan knows he can never fully trust those around him, but it quickly becomes clear that this mission is not what it seems and he finds himself questioning his own superiors. With fears about Iran’s nuclear armament growing by the day and Dan embroiled in a treachery that may extend all the way from Tehran to Washington, this defection looks to be the most dangerous game of all.
I love espionage books, and I have listened to Dick Hill before, but this was boring and poorly performer. He often dropped the accent mid sentence and the story itself was mundane and grueling to listen to.
