In the third full-length military espionage thriller from C.W. Lemoine, Spectre is being hunted by the FBI. The agency believes he’s at the heart of an unthinkable act of terrorism. But as Spectre’s about to find out, the true culprit has set in motion a far more powerful conspiracy.
After escaping a ruthless assassin, Cal “Spectre” Martin is on the run.
Labeled as a fugitive and being used as a scapegoat, Spectre must remain in the shadows, even as he draws together the strings of what he fears is a far-reaching conspiracy. With the covert help of his friends and a fierce desire to exact vigilante justice to avenge the death of his friend, he begins the tricky process of gathering evidence to clear his name, all while avoiding capture by an FBI Agent determined to bring him to justice.
But Spectre’s problems are just beginning. As he peels back the layers of political back-office deals and international espionage, he unearths a treachery so deep it threatens U.S. security and, more importantly, the lives of the few people closest to him.
A treachery that reaches all the way to the nation’s capital.

Buckle Up and cinch the belts tight for C.W. Lemonie’s latest Spectre novel. Fallen Angel is an action packed page turner, you won’t want to put down. Disgraced Ex-Air Force pilot Cal ‘Spectre’ Martin seems to have a dark cloud following him around and he can’t seem to shake the negative karma. His ex-fiancé turned out to be a traitor and now all his close friends have been killed, Spectre is a wanted man by Uncle Sam and others. With no options left, Cal decides to go off the radar with his only friend, his dog Zeus. He heads back home to seek advice from the man who raised him, since his parents were killed in a car accident when he was a teenager. He isn’t there long before the FBI catch onto his location and he must bug out. Spectre is looking to clear his name, but must do so while looking over his shoulder, since he can’t trust anyone. While in the end, Spectre has Retribution & Revenge, he discovers there is more evil to concur. Will Spectre be up to the challenge? I’m sure that will be answered in the next installment of Spectre novels. I truly enjoyed reading Fallen Angel. One doesn’t have to read the first two novels; C.W. does an excellent job, to bring the past into Fallen Angel without just filling the new novel with the past. It’s a great stand alone. C.W. has many scenarios going on at the same time and ties them in together in the end. I read a lot and not many novels make me say WOW!!! This one did that and more. I waited a few days to write a review, I had to come down from the adrenaline rush.
Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite Archangel Fallen is the first book I've read in the Spectre series. This is the third book in the series so I've got some catching up to do. If you are an espionage and military fiction fan, do yourself a favor and read this series. Start with the first book and enjoy as you watch the characters evolve and the suspense mount. Cal Martin is a very likable and believable protagonist. He is ex-military and very good at what he does. He is also something of a wild card, which can lead to trouble in the military and in life. C.W. Lemoine portrays Cal with just the right touch. Most of the characters in Archangel Fallen are military or law enforcement professionals and, as an ex-military man, I have to say C.W. Lemoine has a knack for portraying all of them with the characteristics that successful people in these professions share as well as the individual characteristics that make us all unique. Archangel Fallen moves at just the right pace. You can kill an action novel if you move it too fast or too slow, but C.W. Lemoine has found just the right tempo. Everything makes sense and moves briskly as we watch the good guys figure out the conspiracy. I was particularly interested in the Chinese angle. I believe this will become the focus of American espionage novels in the near future for the simple reason that it will become the focus of American espionage efforts in the real world.
