Crack The Code And You'll Save Lives...But Knowing It Exists Could Get You Killed.When two American embassies in northern Africa are bombed, CIA operatives, Ridley Fox and Nita Parris, are assigned to track down the perpetrators. However, when their top asset is killed in a failed op, the agents suspect that there may be a new threat. Their search for the truth puts them on a collision course with a powerful multinational-which will go to extreme lengths to bury its criminal activities. However, the agents soon learn that someone with a personal vendetta against that company not only knows their secrets, but will expose them in a way that could result in the largest single-day attack against America.

Way too much bad language. And the sex scene was way past the point. While the author admits the plot was complex I think it was way beyond. I like a little realism to spy novels. I was anxious to start on the new series but will stop at this one.

I received an Advance Reader Copy of this book: The Demeter Code by Russell Brooks is a lightning-paced thriller shining light into the shadowy world of corporate and international espionage. Brooks draws the reader in with a powerful and poetic attention to detail, with heart-pounding scenes of devastating hand-to-hand encounters which project the fear and fury right in front of the readers’ eyes. This story is like an IMAX theatre jammed inside your head with the Dolby volume turned up to eleven. Dr. Nita Parris is a smart, tough female protagonist. She and sometime-partner Ridley Fox make for an unbeatable if tumultuous team. And Tim Weyland? Let’s just say he’s full of surprise twists. The bad guys are full-on deranged sociopaths. The dialogue pops like a string of firecrackers. Brooks respects his readers, offering intricate plotting spiced with lucidly spelled-out black-ops tradecraft worthy of Clancy and le Carré. Grab The Demeter Code now and you’ll enjoy one hell of a ride! Robert Blake Whitehill, Author/Screenwriter, The Ben Blackshaw Series

It Hits All The Elements This is a surprisingly well-done story. It's an international spy thriller and hits all the elements you'd expect. Also, it's very current with respect to present day issues and concerns, therefore, very believable. "I received a copy of this book FREE from ebookDiscovery. This is a voluntary review.

OK spy thriller. Believable terrorist plot. The one sex scene felt unnecessary, imho. Alot of plot threads to keep track of. Pace picked up in chapter 4. I would read more by this author. I received this book for free from eBook discovery. I voluntarily post this, my honest review.

This is a farming spook story, it may sound unappealing as a regular spy story, but add in the all the normal elements you expect like car chases, gun fights, big business corruption and national emergencies then it takes on a whole new look. CIA Agent Doctor Nita Parris working with Ridley Fox to run down an arms smuggling operation, uncover a plot with the potential to exceed 9/11 destruction by a factor of ten. It is a race against time and internal politics to save the nation from disaster. As with all 007 style adventures there is tech - in the shape of analyst Dewan Douglas who appears to have access to any system worldwide in an instant, all relayed to the agents in real time through their tiny ear buds. It sounds a little stretched, but like 007 it is entertaining and keeps the pace going. A good read but a little slow to get underway.

The Demeter Code is another well-done action/suspense ride by Russell Brooks, br inging back the spy team of Ridley Fox and Nita Parris (yay!).  Lots of twists a nd turns in the adventure and tons of action.  As usual, there's attention to details with well done dialog and characters, making the story line plausible (hopefully never to be real, though).  The plot is complex with surprises along the way and the threads wrapped up in a satisfying conclusion.   This subject is a departure from my current reading genre (I go through phases), but it still held my attention. And I'm looking forward to the next book.   Rating this one 4.5.  Disclaimer: I was given a free copy by the author but not pressured as to my rev iew or rating. I just liked this book.

Fox and Parris, together again!!! =)  Disclaimer: I received an advance e-copy in exchange for an honest review. There's a terrorist, corporate espionage, and undercover agents galore. What's not to love? We're back again with Ridley Fox and Nita Parris, doing what they do best: Trying to solve a ridiculously "out there" case between Fox's undercover skills and Parris's science-based brain. This time, people are turning up dead, and it all leads back to a major terrorist the U.S. has been targeting for a while. Problem is, he's hard to get to, so they need Fox to once again assume an identity and try to get close to him. To do this, Fox travels all around the world to track down people and obtain information, and we once again get the chance to see just how many languages and other skills he's learned over the years. Meanwhile, Parris has her hands full trying to protect her newest asset, a whistle-blower within a large corporate operation. The two meet up to help one another, and adventure and hilarity both ensue. This book picks up a little while after the events of Pandora's Succession, and the characters are just as great. I found myself not wanting to put it down, and kept telling myself "Just one more page." Before I knew it, I was going to be late for work! It's a gripping, edge-of-your seat tale, and it just takes you further and further down the rabbit hole of what this case is all about. I can say, I didn't see quite a few things coming, and I love when an author can blindside me like that. Great sequel!! 5 stars
