Born in the city of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, in 1977, Sean Sweeney's love of fantasy began 11 years later when he was handed J.R.R. Tolkien's classic The Hobbit. His passion for writing began in 1993, as a sophomore in high school, when he began to write sports for his local newspaper, the Sentinel & Enterprise. Since then, he has written for several Massachusetts newspapers, including the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester and the Southbridge Evening News in Southbridge. He has since returned to where it all started, as he came back to the Sentinel in April 2008. He also strings for the Springfield Republican and Turley Publications.

When the 2012 Summer Olympics opened in London, security was at a fever pitch. They said it was going to be the safest Olympic Games yet.
They were wrong.
Heightened security did not stop a terrorist attack on the final group stage match of the Olympic soccer tournament between the United States and the host Great Britain, played at the fabled Wembley Stadium, the home of British football. And when an agent of al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack, it sent both the United States and the United Kingdom into a heightened state of alert.
There is only one problem for the terrorist: Outbound Eurostar service to Paris and flights out of Heathrow have been shut down – but flights into London continue to come in.
At the request of the President of the United States, the CIA calls upon the one agent – Jaclyn Johnson, a.k.a. Snapshot – he can trust to seek out the killers of many American citizens and bring them to justice.
But what occurs in London during Snapshot's mission leads to political maneuvering – and Jaclyn going against everything she knows.

I really liked the first book in this series and was not disappointed in this one. A fun read! Started it on Saturday night and could not put it down. If you are a fan of 007 this is right up your alley. Sure hope there is another "Snapshot" book in the works.
We first met Johnson, a female James Bond, in "Model Agent." As with Bond, Johnson has a technologically advanced bag of tricks and seems ready for anything. Bond's villains are often over-the-top, almost enough to consider satire; such was the case with the villain in "Model Agent." In "Rogue Agent" the villains are all too possible. Although bin Laden is dead, the organization he headed continues. The plot the terrorists have in this story, while ambitious, is far from unimaginable. In this second book of the "Jaclyn Johnson, code name Snapshot series," Sweeney takes us on a fast paced thrill ride as Jaclyn tries to stop additional terrorist attacks and bring those responsible to justice. I found "Rogue Agent" an even better read than "Model Agent." Jaclyn is more emotionally involved in this case because her parents had died in the al-Qaeda attacks on 9/11. Her reactions to the events in "Rogue Agent" made me feel as if I was getting to know the character better. The political ramifications of a US agent operating on foreign soil assisting the British intelligence service made for a complex, yet more realistic plot. For several hours of action packed escapism, it doesn't get much better than "Rogue Agent." **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog.**
Without a doubt, the worst piece of drivel I have ever read! From bad english composition, to completely unbelieveable plot, it was a mess. Someone has lots of nerve for charging ANYTHING for this effort.
