Feeling lost without Sydney Bristow and Agent Vaughn? Not to worry, Noel Hynd has your back in his new Russian Trilogy, commencing with Conspiracy in Kiev!
Special Agent Alex LaDuca is gifted ~ languages, exceptional investigative skills and an expert shot are all part of her repertoire, making her an invaluable resource to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, a little known arm of the US Treasury.
Alex is happy investigating fraudulent Internet crimes for her government and planning her wedding to Secret Service Agent Robert Timmons. When her skills are required to prepare for a Presidential visit to the Ukraine, Alex agrees and quickly immerses herself in language study and an understanding of a one of the most dangerous men in the world, Ukrainian mob boss, Yuri Federov.
Arriving in the Ukraine, Alex plunges into a world of danger, betrayal and destruction that will leave her questioning her faith, her country and her loyalty.
Conspiracy in Kiev makes for brilliant non-stop reading! Heart pounding action, complex conspiracies and skilled writing combine to make this book a must read. Noel Hynd provides fascinating detail of the social, political and cultural characteristics of the Ukraine and, on the flip side, the machinations of the US Treasury Department and its various agencies. If that isn’t enough, Noel has created a likeable, confident and genuine character in Alex whose vulnerabilities balance her exceptional talent. I was completely absorbed in her physical and spiritual journey.
Amongst the plethora of espionage thrillers available this novel is a gem of a find and I can’t wait to read the rest of Noel’s Russian Trilogy.
