About 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.
Award-winning author James R. Hannibal rachets up the tension on every page of this suspenseful new thriller.
I’m going to start my review with a warning. This book mentions Covid and takes place after the pandemic. There is also talk of a plague. I wanted to state that for people that are sensitive to that.
This was my first book by James R. Hannibal, but it won’t be my last! This book was very quick paced and kept me hooked the whole time. I liked all of the detail. I was able to easily picture the people and what was happening. I didn’t want to put it down!
