One of many spy genre stories, good political thriller set in Paris. Our hero, Carmelini, and Jake Grafton are tasked with protecting the POTUS before a G8 meeting. Story's no better no worse than most. Somewhat disconnected and complex story line. The French continually bumbling-you have to wonder how they successfully put on their sox in the morning. I especially chuckled at the out of touch CYA AMEMB who gets put down by a conversation between Grafton and POTUS. Carmelini, a break in artist, does some...but mostly other things outside his skill level. Falls in love with an "ex" and so that story goes for the next book. ( )

A good summer read. Steven Coonts 1st book Flight of the Avenger introduced us to 1Lt Jake Grafton. The subsequent book we him grow up and rise in rank. Now retited Admiral Grafton is called to duty with some old friends to protect the G8 summit. This was a fun to read mystery. The characters are well developed. Yet new readers to this author need not to have the prior books to enjoy this one.

When he is assigned to Paris, CIA officer Tommy Carmellini joins his old boss Jake Grafton on a bold mission: To locate a French intelligence agent who has secret investments in the Bank of Palestine. Together they work to unravel a tangle of espionage, deception, and murder…and develop an elaborate strategy to infiltrate the highest levels of Al Queda.
Meanwhile, the leaders of the G-8 industrialized nations will soon meet in Paris--an event that would make a tempting terrorist target. Throw into the mix the beautiful, clever daughter of the French ambassador to Washington and an Israeli spy or two, and the stage is set for a tour de force of deception and drama.

Soon Carmellini and Grafton unearth a horrifying plan to shake the West as never before. But can they stop the conspiracy without compromising the intelligence source that could bring down Al Queda once and for all?
