47 Hours, The Coup that Shook the Americas by Clinchandhill
As Mitchel James struggles to come to terms with the Kursk tragedy that claimed 118 Russian lives, he and his family relocate to Venezuela where he takes up a new role as military attaché to the US Embassy in Caracas.
The move was supposed to be a new start for Mitchel, his wife Nathalie and their teenage daughter, Catherine – an escape from the horror of his last mission and the nightmares that continue to haunt him. But life is rarely that simple in the murky world of geopolitics.
After stumbling upon a plot to overthrow the democratically-elected government of Hugo Chávez, Mitchel finds himself in the midst of a coup that his own country appears to be involved in.
Propelled by a need to amend the wrongs of the past, Mitchel teams up with his best friend, the Venezuelan intelligence officer José Abrantes, in an effort to restore democratic power and avert further bloodshed in a thrilling race against time.
Primarily a work of fiction based on fact, this is the second James Mitchel adventure novel.

“A good book and look forward to more”
Five Star Review on Amazon By David Armstrong
I decided to read this on a whim. I wasn’t disappointed. This book has it all. Drama, action, suspense, intrigue…. Etc.
It’s easy to sympathize with the main character and get pulled into the story. Since it’s based on real life places and events, even though it’s fiction, you can imagine this really happening.
The locals and characters were refreshing too. People and places you don’t typically find in this genre. And places currently making headlines making it even more engaging.
I recommend this book if you’re a fan of the genre and I look forward to more books to come.
