A Good Story
Kept me in suspence, good narrative
Tripoli’s Target introduced me to Justin Hall, one of the operators in the Canadian Intelligence Service. In this story the Justin and the CiS receives information that there is going to be an attempt on the life of the president of the United States. As Justin dodges missiles and bullets he discovers that the target is not what it seems to be. The instigators are after another target and the leader of the conspiracy is from a ruling house that no one wants to irritate. Justin weaves his way between the various sides, calls in some favors and at the same time tries to keep his fiancé happy since this case has fallen on their anniversary and planned cruise. He has the help of his fellow agent Carrie and a Libyan friend Abdul. The story is fast paced, up to date with the events going on in North Africa and an interesting read.
Take a Roller Coaster Ride in this Spy Thriller with Justin and Carrie! Ethan Jones in his second book of the Justin Hall series, Tripoli's Target, brings us another spy thriller featuring Justin Hall and Carrie O'Conner, Canadian Intelligence Service Agents. This time our adventure is in North Africa as the CIA experts attempt to spoil an assassination attempt in Tripoli, Libya's capital. Jones starts us off with a bang as we have a group of terrorist in separate vehicles communicating via radio, each with a target to destroy. All but one is a suicide bomber. Jones tells us this part of the story through the thoughts of this one. We see the fears as well as loyalty of these terrorists as this first time activist move in the direction of the bombings. The book begins fast pace and hooks the reader. Justin and Carrie are called in and given assignments. Soon however the story gets a bit bogged down not exemplary of Jones' writing. Perhaps too many changes and too few clarifying details. Simply lost my interest for awhile. As we come to the ending chapter Jones picks up his trade skill and gives us a great ending. I wish he had expanded on the issue with Johnson and her less than ethical handling of Justin and Carrie's assignments and safety. Was a perfect opportunity to build a suspenseful 2nd layer in the CIS team. Also think we could have seen a bit more of the parental skills and desires of both Justin and Carrie had they been given more time or responsibility with child (not being specific her to avoid spoiler) As is often the case with a good spy thriller, things are often not as they seem. I really enjoyed the twist Jones gave us with the event bring the Prince into our plot. The personal touch with Justin's and his dad's relationship gave us a view of the character that Jones sometimes forgets we need. I look forward to seeing more of that. The difference Jones penned among different countries' protective/investigative agencies gave insight and made this story more interesting. As always, I enjoyed Ethan Jones' writing and find his character, Justin Hall, to not only be entertaining but also easy to identify with in that he is written as a skin and bones type guy and not a red cape and tights character.
