Book 2, Tommy Carmellini - A Tommy Carmellini Novel

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

Description

When he is assigned to Paris, CIA officer Tommy Carmellini joins his old boss Jake Grafton on a bold mission: To locate a French intelligence agent who has secret investments in the Bank of Palestine. Together they work to unravel a tangle of espionage, deception, and murder…and develop an elaborate strategy to infiltrate the highest levels of Al Queda.

Meanwhile, the leaders of the G-8 industrialized nations will soon meet in Paris—an event that would make a tempting terrorist target. Throw into the mix the beautiful, clever daughter of the French ambassador to Washington and an Israeli spy or two, and the stage is set for a tour de force of deception and drama.

Soon Carmellini and Grafton unearth a horrifying plan to shake the West as never before. But can they stop the conspiracy without compromising the intelligence source that could bring down Al Queda once and for all? Find out in Stephen Coonts's The Traitor.

From Publishers Weekly

May 15, 2006 – In bestseller Coonts's assured new international thriller, Tommy Carmellini, the sardonic, laid-back CIA agent who became a star in 2004's Liars & Thieves, gets a shot at the big time in his second featured outing when he's asked to drop his routine work and help find out why the director of French intelligence is making large, secret investments in the Bank of Palestine. Tommy wonders if he's the right man for the job; his own espionage experience in France is limited to being "assistant passport officer at the embassy." When his controller tells him that the new head of European Ops asked for Tommy by name, it turns out to be the unretired Jake Grafton (the longtime star of his own Coonts series), described by Carmellini as "the toughest son of a bitch wearing shoe leather." With support from Grafton; an enigmatic, seductive CIA agent, Sarah Houston; and a nifty little electronic weapon that Coonts says is really being tested, Tommy zeroes in on the high-level traitor who could do him and the world a lot of damage.

Slow going.

Another satisfying read

Coonts delivers, again. His writing is a wonderful blend of psychology, politics, intrigue, social commentary, and personalities, all wrapped up in a plot that unfolds in a way that is quite satisfying. He captures your attention and holds it, right through to the end. There are no skipped pages, as you realize that he is always slipping in a piece of information that helps you to better understand the personalities, context, or plot. He keeps the reader on his toes. Read this first, and then The Assassin, it follows and continues the story. It is always satisfying after a good read to be able to pick up the next book and track the progress.

Tommy, Jake, and Callie. It is refreshing that Coonts adds Callie into the mix. A calm, wise, woman; true to her man, his best friend and companion, and the gal who figures out many leads. Each character gets elevated to a central and respectable place, even Willie. Willie did his Mother proud, as Coonts' characters do.
