Review: PARALLAX VIEW by Allan Leverone


  5 of 5 stars

It's the 1980s and the height of the Cold War, but something is about to change and not necessarily for the better. It's up to CIA agent Tracie Tanner to prevent World War III. She's been tasked with delivering a secret and highly sensitive letter from Russian leader Gorbachev to US President Ronald Reagan. The KBG knows something is amiss with Gorbachev and will stop at nothing to retrieve that letter. 

I'm a fan of this author and have read a number of his other stories. He's a master at crafting a compelling and exciting story taking the reader on a journey of highs and lows, and numerous twists and turns. The PARALLAX VIEW is an explosive thriller that does not disappoint. Tracie is one kick-ass agent and it's great to see a strong female lead carry the story. Add in high level betrayals, intrigue, and a life and death race against time and this book will keep you reading long after your bedtime. Fans of political thrillers will not be disappointed. Highly Recommended.
