To save an innocent friend, soldier and spy Jim Chapel will risk his own life and reputation to stop a deadly conspiracy from threatening the country in this relentless, nonstop action adventure from the author of the acclaimed thrillers Chimera and The Hydra Protocol
Jim Chapel pledged his life to protect his country from its enemies. But now the one-armed special forces soldier-turned-spy is on the wrong side of the law. The person he trusts most in the world, the brilliant hacker known only as Angel, is suspected of terrorism. When his boss calls for Angel’s arrest, Chapel, certain it’s a frame job, has only one option: to go rogue.
To protect Angel—a woman he’s never actually met—Chapel must clear her name. But first he has to find her before a deadly marine sniper, a drone aircraft gone feral, and the entire intelligence community closes in. With the aid of old friends and his ex-lover Julia, the search to find who framed Angel leads Chapel into the dark and lethal underbelly of the covert intelligence world . . . to a conspiracy with deep roots that shocks even this hardened veteran—and a plan that will destroy the United States as we know it if it succeeds.
A brief history:
David Wellington is my favorite author, so this is pretty biased. I started reading his books with his second series (The Laura Caxton series, if you go to his website you can read the first book for free!) and have read everything he’s released since! He’s written several horror series (Zombie, Vampire and Werewolf), the Jim Chapel books and a fantasy series under a pen name (David Chandler).
The Cyclops Initiative is the third book in the Jim Chapel series (there are several novellas as well). I preordered the book through Amazon and it arrived a day early (I was still finishing up Prime at the time). I spent the next day and a half lost in the pages of the tale. It’s an “easy” read, I don’t mean that in a negative way. I easily lose myself in the world of Jim Chapel, the espionage, the cat and mouse…it’s just so good!
Do I Recommend This Book?:
In case you couldn’t tell…YES! I have…I’ve recommended the Jim Chapel series to my mother, my father, my stepmother, Maz’s wife…pretty much anyone that reads…
You can (and should) get the book on Amazon.
