” High Suspense Action Adventure Spy Thriller”

Five Star Review on Amazon By VicG

Marilynn Larew in her new book, “Dead In Dubai” Book Two in the Lee Carruthers series published by Artemis Hunter Press gives us another adventure with Lee Carruthers.

From the back cover: Lead had already begun to fly before former CIA analyst Lee Carruthers could get to Dubai to investigate the death of George Branson, and each question she asked ratcheted the danger up by a notch.

She knew George. He was a CIA officer, but she discovered that he had other identities as well . In Dubai he was Gil Brady, and he worked for the Russian merchant of death Sergei Malyakov. In Istanbul he was Karl Spiegel, and he worked for Belarusian arms dealer Felix Gringikov. He might have been collateral damage in the war between Malyakov and Gringikov for control of the post-Soviet arms trade, but Lee had to determine if Branson still worked for the CIA when he was killed or if he’d sold out and if so, to whom.

Action, adventure, mystery, suspense are just some of the ingredients in “Dead In Dubai”. This is a spy thriller filled with cross, double cross and triple cross. I haven’t read a good spy thriller where you cannot take anything at face value in a real long time. “Dead In Dubai” is going to keep you on your toes as you race along trying to keep up with all that is going on. The suspense is practically constant, only sporadically does Ms. Larew let you come up for air. Let me assure you that once you get started with “Dead In Dubai” you are not going to want to stop until you finish so I recommend you start early. Ms. Larew has provided us with a very clever exciting book and I look forward to the next book in this series.
