Behind Enemy Lines by RJ Patterson is the first in a series of novels that introduces us to the hero, Titus Black. Black is a CIA operative who has been sent behind enemy lines in order to find and rescue a downed air force pilot. He finds his man, but in the process of getting him to safety, comes across another operation taking place; an operation that he was never meant to see. Now, on the run from the organization that he has worked for for most of his life, Black has to stop doing investigations in order to find out what was going on and why the CIA wants him 6 feet under the ground. To make matters worse, it appears Black will have to go all the way to the President if he hopes to get any answers.
Patterson has created a new character who takes us on an amazing thrill ride. Titus is clever, fast, strong, and a bit of a loose cannon. He is highly dedicated to his country and will work, even against his own organization, to keep his country and his people safe. The novel is well written and the characters are well developed. The settings are nicely described which makes visualizing the events easy for the reader. I look forward to the next installment in the series and where the character will take us next.
