The Courier (Simon Leonidovich Series #1) by Jay MacLarty

The Courier's Motto: the package always arrives unopened, undamaged, and in one piece.

But the courier may not be so lucky.

Simon Leonidovich is an average-looking guy, with a disarming smile and more frequent-flyer miles than most airline pilots. He's a high-tech, international courier of "packages" that range from priceless works of art to human organs and nuclear materials. When he accepts a contract to make a pickup at a small laboratory in Sweden, it seems like another easy job — until someone sets him up for a fall.

Suddenly, he's on the run, trying to protect secret data that could save the lives of millions and destroy an international corporate merger. The police want him for a murder; a psychotic hired killer wants him for the package and the pleasure of killing; and Simon just wants to survive....

With explosive action, an international conspiracy, and a hero that just won't quit, Jay MacLarty's The Courier is an edge-of-your-seat debut thriller that delivers!

If you like character, story and a fast, well paced read this is the book for you. As the story grows on you so does lead character, Simon Leonidovich. You will empathize with his problems and rejoice in his victories.

If you have been reading Dan Brown lately, as I have, it's a pleasure to welcome a new author into the same game. Like Brown's books, The Courier starts with a bang, and the suspense keeps growing right to the end. It's a smart thriller, MacLarty has done his homework. It travels all over the map (and the scenes in Madrid are totally authentic I can say after having lived there five years). The characters are terrific, and the villain is as spooky and evil as any in other thrillers. MacLarty has a great career ahead if he can keep up this kind of work. Can't recommend it too highly.

This is a great 'sit on the edge of your seat ' thriller that would make a great movie! Love the main characters who are refreshingly real! Can't wait for another MacLarty book.

This book starts fast and gets faster as it goes! There are really some memorable characters you will not forget. Through a maze of high-tech wizardry until its stunning conclusion, this is quite a journey. Big thumbs up.

I couldn't stop reading this. The cover comments didn't do justice to what lay inside! Very suspenseful and fast moving. I read the book in a day and a half and can't wait for the next book to be finished.
