This is a continuation of Counterblow. Javin and Claudia have been advised that they need to complete this current task of locating and killinng or Capturing 2 ISIS leaders to be considered for reinstatement into ISIS. There is a new minister of Safety and they have a new boss because of actuals they took in the last book.
They both go to Iraq and are in a refugee camp to interview people to try and gather information in order to complete their task. While there, they are introduced to Liberty who is in charge of running the camp. Liberty will play a larger role in future stories. They were able to talk to one person that was suspected of aiding ISIS. There conversation with this individual raised alarms to 2 corrupt members of the Iraqi government. It also resulted in the abduction of this individual by the corrupt officials.
While following up on the abduction, the camp was attacked while Javin was there Claudia was with an Iranian member of their team when information was obtained where the ISIS Leaders might be found. Javin also had been given a note which provided this same location. Once the team arrived at the site, a major skirmish occurred and 1 of the Leaders was killed with the other one's location unknown.
Based on information that the team obtained from this location, Javin and Claudia were sent to Geneva to check out activity on a bank account. Once they got to Geneva and captured the banker involved, they were attacked by the Russians.
If you want to find out why the Russians were involved and whether the other ISIS Leader was located then you need to read this book.
Someone is out to stop Javin and the price on his head is pure hate getting satisfaction - the fury of a woman scorned has nothing on an ISIS jihadist out to bring him down! Javin and Claudia are on a mission that will allow them to return to CIS after their previous mission in Geneva went wrong.
But finding the intel they need goes wrong when their possible source goes missing from the refugee camp and their safe house is attacked. When the local officials start the clock ticking on when they have to be out of the country any source of information becomes an option.
Seeking aid from the few people that they can trust Javin and Claudia find themselves heading back to the very country that brought them to their current situation. Geneva neutral in name but profiting from the various sources using them to hide their ill-gotten gains.
This is a high action movie for those who would rather read than see it their action. Ethan Jones manages to keep his books fresh and not repetitive so one never feels as "I've read this before." Not happening here. And you'll be kept in suspense from the first line until you finish and then there is the anticipation of what can possibly happen next. Don't miss out on this latest thrilling mission that only a corrector can find themselves in.
Retrieval takes the reader into the world of espionage, devious planning, courage, fear, betrayal and adventure involving the Canadian Intelligence Secret Service agents, Javin Pierce and Claudia Aquarone. This is book # 4 in the Javin Pierce Spy Thriller series. It can be read as a stand alone. The characters are well defined, well fleshed, full of intrigue and ready for danger at every turn. The action is non-stop, electrifying, moving at an invigorating pace with plenty of twists and turns. A Highly Recommended Read!!
This is the 4th novel in Ethan Hall's series about Correctors--the people that CIS sends to fix things when an operation has gone sideways. They were being given an opportunity to get straight with CIS following something that got botched. There's lots of good stuff here. They connect with an information source in an Iraqi refugee camp, follow the money to Europe, recover it, have a high speed chase, etc., etc., and Javin does something with that money. You'll have to read the book to find out what, but his partner doesn't know. On the other hand, Javin finds himself attracted to two different attractive females, and is trying to figure out what to do with them. We should all have such problems. Basically a HEA situation. Buy it! You'll love it!
Javin Pierce and Claudia are on a dangerous escapade in Irag. The action keeps you on the edge of your seat and their close calls with death will take your breath away. Heart stopping action makes you wonder if they will ever see their headquarters in Canada again.
Another excellent book from Ethan Jones. I like the references to prior book action which have enough detail to make one understand their meaning and relevance in this standalone book. Realism, pertainent topic and great writing make it hard to put down.
Javin Pierce and his partner Claudia work for CIS. Canada's clandestine service similar to the CIA. They are called Correctors. I like to call them fixers. They are gathered information on corrupt Iraqi officials in Mosul, and remnants of Isis terrorist still there and operational. The primary problem is corrupt officials with ties to Isis. This is a nonstop action filled thriller. Enjoyed immensely!
A definite 5-star read. In this fourth Javin Pierce Spy Thriller, you get all. Unlikely bonds are formed, betrayals are made, and non-stop action and espionage ensues. Ethan Jones’ characters are intricately drawn, and very believable. Retrieval is one of those non-put-downable books. You just have to see what happens next.
This is the best novel in the Jacob Pierce series. It flows without interruption to the end. Too, it can be read by itself. There are several other before this one. Don't wait too long in purchasing your copy. You won't be disappoint ed.
This book has so many twists and turns. Just when you think you know what's going on something new happens. I loved this book. It is again one of Ethan's great books. All I can say is" keep them coming".
