CIA Black Ops agent John Smith is on his latest assignment in London. Little does he know--it'll also be his last. Barely surviving an attack on his life, Smith lays low for six months until he returns to the United States. His flight is strangely diverted to Philadelphia where he meets a mysterious man who knows all about his past and recruits him for a job.
Needing a new identity, Smith becomes Michael Recker. He then tries to prevent bad things happening to innocent people while interacting with several crime factions operating within the city. All the while, Recker plans his revenge on Agent 17 who committed a heinous act that Recker will never forget.
Bought this book because the title was of my favorite author Donald Hamilton.
Enjoyable book. Having read a lot of 60's and 70's spy thrillers this book took me back to a pleasant time in my life.
Will definitely try the next book as well as The Cain Series by same author.
With a name like Dave Jones and originally from Carlisle how could I not be impressed.
This is a very good story, I enjoyed reading it very much, I love this kind of heroes, the only thing is that you never gave a description of Mike or David and I really like to know what the characters in a book look like so I can seem to see them in my mind, but I do recommend this book, it’s very good, thank you!!
