Book Review – Chasing the White Lion

51RbGoYBlTLChasing the White Lion

by James R Hannibal

Young CIA officer Talia Inger has reconciled with the man who assassinated her father, but that doesn’t mean she wants him hovering over her every move and unearthing the painful past she’s trying to put behind her. Still, she’ll need him–and the help of his star grifter, Valkyrie–if she hopes to infiltrate the Jungle, the first ever crowdsourced crime syndicate, to rescue a group of kidnapped refugee children.

But as Talia and her elite team of thieves con their way into the heart of the Jungle, inching ever closer to syndicate boss the White Lion, she’ll run right up against the ragged edge of her family’s dark past. In this game of cat and mouse, it’s win . . . or die. And in times like that, it’s always good to have someone watching your back.

Former tactical deception officer and stealth pilot James Hannibal takes you deep undercover into the criminal underworld where everyone has an angle and no one escapes unscathed.


My Review

The second book in the intriguing series about Talia.

I found this one to be just as good if not better than the first.

I’m  pretty sure I’ve said this before, but I just love suspense, mystery, intrigue, all of that…and therefore, stories involving CIA are right up my alley.

Talia is a fun CIA agent. I like how the author incorporates humor into the story. (sometimes maybe a bit too much, but that’s just my personal opinion…)

Part of the storyline, the part where Talia is trying to figure out what happened to her dad, is a continuation from the first book, The Gryphon Heist. So, if you haven’t read that one, you’ll definitely want to go read it first. I enjoyed seeing the continuation of this mystery thread.

I also really liked the new mission, the setting, the characters.

Lots of action. Suspense. Twists, turns, unexpected events, and more.
