Very well written and equally inspiring novel. Not only was the novel full of suspense but the author portrayed the character personalities nicely. The protagonist’s involvement in medicine helped professional readers relate to the terminology. His ability to utilize ammunition also corroborated his accommodation and assimilation capabilities. More importantly, his caring personality substantiates his compliance with the Hippocratic Oath as a medical expert - an oath necessitating physicians to protect the life of humans. Rebecca Nolan’s characteristics appeared bizarre in the absence of the flight syndrome; and this in itself raised significant skepticism about her personality. What seemed awe-inspiring was her reactions to threat…the initial defiance followed by compliance. Nonetheless, the reader’s interest dissipated after the appearances of Dattar, Khalil and their unrealistic expeditions; and the story gets boring because their activities only convinced the reader that they could outsmart the FBI, CIA and NYPD.

As for Covert One series books, or for Jason Bourne readers, and Ludlum fans, this particular book is gripping, pulling you in from the start, satisfying your crave for action and suspense. It's a brilliant edition to read. Highly recommended..

Action packed on each page with plotting similar to Ludlam's. If you like Lee Child novels this thriller will satisfy you too. The heroes are like that pink battery run bunny who just keeps going despite life threatening assaults. Suitable for teens, especially boys because of its male characters and action plot. I think I may have found another author to add to my list of preferred authors.
