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 ratchets up the tension on every page of this suspenseful new thriller.
In My Opinion
If you’re looking for a fast-paced, keep-you-on-your-toes, and guessing-what-comes-next read, The Paris Betrayal by James R. Hannibal is for you.
From the first chapter of the novel, Ben is on the run, and right along with him, readers are kept in the dark as we experience the twists and turns right along with our burned spy. There are moments of sarcastic humor woven in (maybe to lighten the intensity but it doesn’t always work) and plenty of players in the game.
In fact, there’s so much going on action-wise, it was difficult to get to know much about Ben at all. But the pace of the novel kept me engaged and wanting to know how it ends, so I would recommend this book for fans of plot-driven, intense storylines.
