The Paris Betrayal by James R. Hannibal: Book Review
Title: The Paris Betrayal
Author: James R. Hannibal
Genre: Christian Suspense
Release Date: May 4, 2021
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.
Action-packed! And I know we use edge of your seat for a lot of book reviews, but I truly mean it when I say that you won’t be able to stop turning pages while reading The Paris Betrayal.
Ben is everything a reader could want in a spy novel. He’s fierce, loyal, and will do whatever it takes to get the bad guy. So, what happens when everything starts going wrong? No matter which way he turns, things keep going sideways, and it’s up to him to turn it right side up.
I loved the parallel to Job from the Bible. It fit seamlessly in the writing and flow of the plot without taking away from the suspense or Ben’s character. In fact, I thought it enhanced it. And that ending! Don’t even get me started. I won’t spoil it for you, but wowzers.
