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.

One of many spy genre stories, no better no worse. This one tells the story of Tommy Carmalini on what he hopes to be his last assignment for the Company. This one involves a meeting of the big 8 in Paris. It is Carmalini’s job to assist Admiral Grafton foil the terrorists who they know are planning an attack. Now if someone would just tell him what was going on and who keeps trying to kill him. ( )
