I have always enjoyed Alex Lukeman's work, but this is by far my favorite. Nick Carter, the main character works for a government agency that answers only the POTUS. He is an Afghan war vet who has skills necessary for covert work. The director of his agency, Ms. Harker, is a woman who tolerates no incompetence. When a wealthy businessman, William Connor, is murdered, all his assets moved from his accounts to that of an official of the Chinese government, and a book important to him is missing, Nick and his war buddy Ronnie are brought in to locate, his niece and ultimately the book. Selena Connor is a linguist proficient in ancient languages, and as the story progresses, we learn she has many other unusual skills. Ultimately Nic, Selena, and Ronnie are sent on a mission that follows instructions in William Connor's book. Their lives are put in danger, and the lives of all Americans become threatened. This is well written and keeps you wanting to read more. When the story ends, you feel like you MUST read the next installment. I post reviews only of books I absolutely love, or those I feel aren't worth reading. This is one that is terrific!
