Publisher's Summary

In the aftermath of the horrifying attacks of September 11, 2001, a second wave of attacks is expected to hit the US mainland. The year is 2002. A cabal of elite one-world proponents, in conspiracy with members of the Chinese government, has developed an operation to spark the birth of their new world order. John Powers, ex-Delta Force sniper and CIA operative and the Alpha Team, must act now.

Joey Valentine, a 22 year-old African-American computer whiz and master hacker, Melissa Harrington, 21 year-old ex-con, convicted of killing her tormentor and child molesting step-father, and Jackie Allison, a 31 year-old ex-DEA undercover agent, together with John Powers, are the Alpha Team. Their employer is Sect-Intel, a private intelligence firm owned by Alex Cardenas, and under contract to the Department of Defense and the CIA. Following standard operating procedures is not the norm for John and the Alpha Team. They must do what it takes to prevent the horrifying multiple-pronged attack that is about to be unleashed on the United States.

John Powers is great to follow

This was great to listen to. The combination of suspense with real events make this a true "international political thriller." Narration was easy to follow, creating great imagery. Overall, a great experience following Mr. Powers.

Even better than the first

As an author, Parr has evolved and is continuing to show the promise demonstrated in his first endeavor, Due Diligence.
A fast paced thriller, Black Swan does a wonderful job of weaving financial markets and espionage into one cohesive story. One of the things I enjoyed the most was the multi-plot storyline, giving readers a taste of it all. A must read.

Operation Black Swan

Firstly I am a fan of Owen Parr s books. and as such when I pick one up I expect a well written excellent thriller.
And this meets and exceeded expectations.
No graphic violence and only a little bit of bad language, the book's plot is tense yet fast paced.
Narration is good.
This audiobook is first rate entertainment and is totally Gripping. .As usual with the author's books I didn't want to put it down.
I received a free copy of this audio book at my own request and voluntarily leave this honest review. .

Full of minutia and not enough plot.

The author has difficulty staying on topic. As a result, the pace of the novel suffers. The character introductions and back stories go on forever, leaving very little time for the story.
