Chasing the White Lion by James R. Hannibal: Book Review
About the book:
Title: Chasing the White Lion
Author: James R. Hannibal
Genre: Christian Suspense
Release Date: March 3, 2020
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.
Absolutely stunning. Couldn’t put it down. Talia certainly makes this book unforgettable. When I first met her in The Gryphon Heist, I wasn’t sure how this series would work, but Chasing the White Lion has drawn me in and trapped me in a well-crafted story.
As someone who’s always trying to do everything alone, being part of a team is a struggle for Talia. Especially when that team is as wide-spread as the elite team intent on infiltrating the heart of the jungle.
A game of cat and mouse that leaves you on the edge of your seat biting your nails in anticipation. There are very few moments of inactivity in this story. You’ll be jetsetting off to unknown lands and racing through mazes like a rat in a trap. Excellent story development and enough character diversity to create an endless mixture of hilarity and toe-stomping.
