Through word of mouth it has come to my attention that some of you have books or genres that you would like to see featured in upcoming posts. I can’t guarantee that I will read/review them right away as my TBR pile is rapidly approaching the 500 mark (I am still unsure of how exactly this happened) but I will try to accommodate requests in a somewhat timely manner. Just post a request in the comments section or send me an email and I will see what I can do.
A friend of mine was looking for spy fiction recommendations what I have unearthed is hopefully another treasure mined from Goodreads, it’s an espionage thriller called Nonofficial Asset by William Sewell.
Peyton Stone never quit his day job. But it’s his other profession that might just get him killed.
Islamabad. Baghdad. Shanghai. Kazakhstan, Kabul. Langley. For Peyton Stone, that’s a work commute. But his is no normal job. On the surface he’s a world-renowned security expert. But his real occupation is serving as a “nonofficial asset,” a contractor working for the CIA when the government needs complete deniability. While advancing American interests globally, Stone discovers that those interests can exact a steep personal price. And when his business partner is murdered in a Shanghai hotel, ominous ghosts from his past return and he’s drawn deeper into the covert maze, on the hunt for a stolen nuclear weapon and the rogue Iranian admiral hell-bent on using it. In Nonofficial Asset his skills, training, tactics, mettle, and allegiance to family and country are all pushed to the limit as he races to prevent nuclear catastrophe.
This may not sound like my usual fare, and to some degree it isn’t but that being said I am also a huge fan of espionage in film and on television. Perhaps I just have been otherwise occupied in New Adult and YA fiction too long. Regardless that part of me that is part Jason Bourne, part James Bond with some Sydney Bristow thrown in for good measure is looking forward to reading and reviewing this one.
