It's a quick trip to Paris, right? A little cloak and dagger work, but anybody can do that when nobody's after you. All you have to do is get to a meeting. No problem, unless someone IS after you.
Colonel Paul Cameron takes the trip, thinking he'll be home in a week after a quick meeting with his old friend Fahd al-Auda, a General in the Royal Saudi Air Force. But what he soon learns is that Fahd knows something is going on in Saudi Arabia something that he fears may turn into the most diabolical plot yet to threaten the American homeland. Fahd has left Saudi and come to Paris, and he doesn't know he's only one step ahead of the al-Qaeda mastermind's pursuit, a pursuit designed to kill him and all his family before they can reveal anything and ruin the plan.
What ensues is a desperate chase, from the subways of Paris to the parched dunes of the Arabian Desert, The Phoenix Affair is a fast-paced and intricately-wrought thriller that skips across three continents. Cameron turns out to be a natural survivor, with skills he's never used, and his is a sweeping tale of technology, tradecraft, quick-thinking and hard fighting from the first pages to the final climactic conflict.

Well rounded characters. Suspenseful, I was disappointed that the book ended!
Great read! The fast paced action kept me glued to my Nook. Lovers of spy novels will not be dissappointed.
I gauge the quality of a book on two factors: how late it keeps me up at night, and whether or not a flight attendant yells at me for not turning off my Nook prior to takeoff. Well I’m tired and I’m not making friends with the flight attendant! This book has all the makings of a great spy novel: technology, intrigue, tradecraft, action, well-developed characters, and exotic locales. Can’t wait for the next one!
This was just what I was hoping for. Paul Clark is going to be the new addition to all those thriller writers that keep us surfing the NOOK store waiting for their next books. Great action, well written tradecraft, great characters that will last a long, long time in this series. Tell all your friends, gotta have this one.
