Company spy Ben Calix finds his world unraveling when a mission goes sour in Rome and he returns to Paris only to discover that his cover is blown. Ben is forced to go on the run with only his obnoxious neighbor and her dog as companions, both of whom he reluctantly takes with him after they get involved as he flees. To make matters worse, the Company thinks Ben is the one who turned against them and they are leaving him in the dark when it comes to details about catching a bioterrorist. Ben must rely on all of his training to catch the villain before it is too late.
What a thrilling ride! This book is exciting from beginning to end. I liked how the action kept the plot moving and didn’t slow down one bit. The book definitely held my attention and I had a hard time putting it down. I found Ben an easy character to like and I enjoyed reading the book from his perspective. The dialogue and characters’ interactions felt natural and were well woven among the action. There were some twists that I did not expect and I found myself surprised by more than one part of the story. I enjoyed this novel and look forward to more by this author!
