Overview

Yemen's top terrorist is planning a devastating biological attack against the United States. He only has one problem – his moneyman has just been arrested by Yemen's counterterrorism unit.

At the same time, a very wealthy Yemeni man, overwhelmed by his son's recent drug arrest in Saudi Arabia and the prospect that his son will spend many years behind bars, finds hope from an unexpected source. Approached by a member of an elite four-member CIA team, he's promised that his son will come home – on one condition. He has to pose as a moneyman for the terrorist and find out exactly what is being planned and when. Of course, he agrees.

The CIA team, including an attractive woman doctor, has joined a Catholic mission, which houses a medical clinic, in order to have cover while operating in Yemen.

While performing her duties as a physician for the mission, the woman agent comes across some autistic children at an orphanage and learns that they've never had any vaccinations – which she believes is the underlying cause of autism. This leads her to discover something else that might be going on with these particular children. Admitting it's a "long shot," she nonetheless pursues her hypothesis, unaware that following through on her theory will get people killed.

Meanwhile, the CIA team has a big problem – the real moneyman has escaped from custody. If he finds his way back to the terrorist, their imposter front man will no longer be needed. In fact, his life will be in danger. And the CIA will be in the dark, unable to thwart the pending attack.

I just finished reading The Yemen Connection by M.H. Sargent. Having read all of his other books, and being familiar with the characters, I was so excited to read his newest book. I was not disappointed. Peterson, Gonz, Heisman, and McKay are all back. The story was very well written. This book was not as suspenseful as his other books, but the concept and story kept me turning the pages...quickly!
The story was also really believable, which, like his other books, puts us in the Middle East.

An Excellent Thriller! Based on the cover I knew I had to own The Yemen Connection. I read the first page and I was hooked. It's easy to see why there has been so much praise for M.H. Sargent's CIA adventures. The Yemen Connection is book four in a series where "quiet" technology lets the reader get closer to the characters. We join an elite CIA team - three men and one attractive female doctor in Yemen. Peterson, Gonz, Heisman, and McKay are working undercover at a Catholic medical clinic, disguised as clergy. The clock is ticking as Yemen's top terrorist plots a biological attack against the United States. All very believable and scary. The book is well-written in 'edge of your seat' action. But it was the characters who struck a chord with me. Not only the CIA agents who are humane and caring, but the locals who bear no hatred for the Americans. You'll find no stereotypes in The Yemen Connection, just human beings trying to hold their world together. I highly recommend this book. I just purchased Seven Days from Sunday. I'm about to being at the beginning of this amazing series. Thanks to M.H. Sargent!
