Book Review: The Paris Betrayal

From the back of the book:
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.

The Paris Betrayal was a wild ride and I loved every minute of it! If you enjoy spy books and movies, this needs to be next on your list. I finished it in less than two days, reading it at every opportunity. The author did a brilliant job of making the reader really question what was going on (it’s difficult to elaborate without giving spoilers) despite knowing the truth – which is exactly what the main character is feeling – and it left me wanting a sequel! I’d definitely see the movie if this ever became one. The Paris Betrayal is thrilling, suspenseful, and relevant for today’s world.
