DESCRIPTION (taken from the back)
War on Terror veteran, Erin Caine, is found wondering the streets of Miami with no memory of a car accident that left him there. Alone and suffering from PTSD, Eric is on a one-way road to self-destruction. Then a chance meeting at a bar begins a series of events that helps Eric start anew. When his new job relocates him to Venezuela- the land of his childhood- things, however, take an ominous turn as a catastrophic event threatens the stability of the country. Now Eric must escape an elite team of CIA assassins as he tries to uncover a international conspiracy in which nothing is what it seems.
WHAT I THOUGHT
I absolutely love books that deal with the CIA or departments of international intelligence. So I was pretty excited when I was able to review “Sleeper’s Run”. It reminded me a lot of James Rollins, just without the weird primordial death chamber or something. It started off great and ended with a bang. Every page kept me glued to the book. I was even racing the pages to see what would happen next. The constant barrage of government abbreviations (like NOC) had me researching the names because I had no clue what they stood for.
Eric somehow ends up in Venezuela, where he meets a young lady who works (supposedly) with the same company he is now a part of. He finds himself getting closer to her, until a weird turn of events have him assassinate an important figure. Now he finds himself running from not only the Venezuelan government, but the American government as well. No matter where he hides or which country he goes to, he is always found. He soon finds out a very important secret, one that causes him to make mistakes.
But will his mistakes, along with the other officials, cause the whole operation (and possibly America) to end up in the hands of the Venezuelan government?
I love this book. It was a high-octane read that left you baffled at the ending.
I was NOT compensated for this review. I received a FREE copy of Sleeper’s Run by Henry Mosquera to review. All thoughts/opinions are my own.
