After a rough mission in Rome involving the discovery of a devastating bioweapon, Company spy Ben Calix returns to Paris to find his perfectly ordered world has collapsed. A sniper attack. An ambush. A call for help that brings French SWAT forces down on his head. Ben is out. This is a severance–reserved for incompetents and traitors.
Searching for answers and anticipating a coming attack, Ben and a woman swept up in his misfortunes must travel across Europe to find the sniper who tried to kill him, the medic who saved his life, the schoolmaster who trained him, and an upstart hacker from his former team. More than that, Ben must come to grips with his own insignificance as the Company’s plan to stop Leviathan from unleashing the bioweapon at any cost moves forward without him–and he struggles against the infection that is swiftly claiming territory within his own body.
Award-winning author James R. Hannibal ratchets up the tension on every page of this suspenseful new thriller.
The Paris Betrayal by James R. Hannibal is for fans of fast-paced action -packed thrillers. This novel has all the suspense, intensity, and deadly danger a reader expects. The dialogue was well-done. It and the well-crafted scenes moved this book to a quick pace. I enjoyed the characters. A deadly chase that captivated me from the first chapter. There is a lot at risk for the characters. It is bad enough when a job that is highly planned goes to hell but when traitors are in place, it raises the hell bent revenge and the seek for justice only that much greater. The heroes always prevail. Some lose but in the end, the good guys win. I love James R. Hannibal’s writing style. He brings to life his characters and their worlds in ways I cannot believe. Everything felt real. Ben is a strong, smart, and just as determined as his enemies. Edgy, dark, and fun-I enjoyed reading this novel.
