The Paris Betrayal


After a rough mission in Rome involving the discovery of a devastating bioweapon, Company spy Ben Calix returns to Paris to find his perfectly ordered world has collapsed. A sniper attack. An ambush. A call for help that brings French SWAT forces down on his head. Ben is out. This is a severance--reserved for incompetents and traitors.

Searching for answers and anticipating a coming attack, Ben and a woman swept up in his misfortunes must travel across Europe to find the sniper who tried to kill him, the medic who saved his life, the schoolmaster who trained him, and an upstart hacker from his former team. More than that, Ben must come to grips with his own insignificance as the Company's plan to stop Leviathan from unleashing the bioweapon at any cost moves forward without him--and he struggles against the infection that is swiftly claiming territory within his own body.

Award-winning author James R. Hannibal ratchets up the tension on every page of this suspenseful new thriller.

My thoughts: I was surprised at just how much I loved this book, since it sat in my "to be read" pile for a while before I got around to starting it. From the get go, the pace is fast, as it opens with the mission in Rome (which should of been cut and dried) that goes south fast. 
I loved the twists and turns to the story! After the Pandemic, I feel like I look at stories about infections and bioweapons differently. This was an incredibly well written story that I enjoyed immensely. My only complaint is that the ending was missing a little something, but I hope that means there will be a sequel!
I received this book from the Revell. This is my honest review.
