Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Janus Reprisal

Book 9, Covert-One Series - A Covert-One Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

With U.S. intelligence agencies wracked by internal power struggles and paralyzed by bureaucracy, the president was forced to establish his own clandestine group--Covert-One. It is activated only as a last resort, when the threat is on a global scale and time is running out.
THE JANUS REPRISAL
It begins with a terrorist attack. Covert-One operative Colonel Jon Smith is attending a conference in The Hague on infectious diseases, together with leading scientists and political figures from around the world. Without warning, the conference hotel is consumed in a bloodbath. Smith is caught in the crossfire and barely escapes . . . but not before discovering a picture of himself and two other targets in the pocket of one of the shooters.
But the hotel is not the only location under attack in The Hague. Bombs are going off at the train station, the airport, and the International Criminal Court, where Pakistani warlord Oman Dattar is being held while he's tried for crimes against humanity. In the resulting chaos, the prisoner escapes.
Dattar nurses a special hatred for the United States and its allies. With his freedom, and access to a mysterious new weapon, Dattar puts in motion a murderous, ambitious plot to exact his revenge and bring down the West once and for all--unless Covert-One can stop him.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 07, 2013 – Freveletti is the sixth author to make use of Ludlum's Covert-One concept and she provides the kind of high-octane action that Ludlum fans have come to expect. She wastes no time plunging the reader into the middle of things, opening with series lead Lieutenant Colonel Jon Smith an Army doctor who's an expert on infectious diseases and an operative for Covert-One, "one of the deepest black operations in the US intelligence community" waking up at gunpoint. Smith is in The Hague for a meeting of the World Health Organization when terrorists attack his hotel. Unsurprisingly, Smith manages to survive, despite being taken off-guard, and when the dust settles, begins to pursue why he, along with two others, were specifically targeted by the gunmen. The motive is probably connected with the escape of Oman Dattar, a Pakistani charged with crimes against humanity, from the custody of the International Criminal Court. The storyline isn't as original as in Kyle Mills' contribution to the series (2011's The Ares Decision), but the quality of writing elevates it above many similar books.

Customer Reviews

Quick read

This was a very quick read. It was fast paced and entertaining. I would have liked a better ending with more closure. Would recommend.

Absolutely awful!

Don't waste your money. If you are expecting anything even remotely resembling Ludlum style, you will be VERY disappointed.

Third rate writing, silly, simplistic plot and unrealistic characters. Ugh!

The Janus reprisal

A decent read but a lot of back and forth of the same capture re-capture. Some of it was just dumb.
