Editorial Reviews

Review

The suave, sophisticated, debonair, and dangerous Harrison Court-006 leads the story with an incredible command that many if not most spy thrillers lack. The book is a perfect 10--author Kay Zen.

--Kay Zen

Author Fran Lewis declares Harrison Court is every woman's hero and every foe's nightmare in an ending so bone chilling that not even Patterson or Berry's novels could compare to that of author Kensington Roth.
--Fran Lewis

Special effects abound in the threat of super-weapons, high-speed car chases, and B-52 bombers landing two thousand pound bombs.--author Sheila Deeth.
--Sheila Deeth

Roth has created a thriller that takes the reader on a breath-taking ride from Italy to China to the caves of Tora Bora. This book is recommended for readers of spy novels who like non-stop action.--author Sandie Kirkland --Sandie Kirkland

It was well written with a nice blend of action. It was an interesting story with an intriguing twist on current international relations. Think of it as a cousin to the Jason Bourne novels author Beth Fielding --Beth Fielding

Format: Kindle Edition
Able Danger, by Kensington Roth, is a fast-moving novel of spies, politics and international intrigue. The characters travel between the US, China, ToraBora and Italy, with convincing accents and dialog well-rendered, even to the realism of simultaneous conversations and bracketed captions for foreign words. Scenery is carefully described almost like dressing a movie set, and action given in detail. But the novel loses speed during political monologues, when the line between character opinion and authored facts grows blurred, and when the obfuscation of politi-speak weaves its way into the narrative.

The main protagonist, Agent Harrison Court introduces himself in chapter two, with a quick first-person nod to James Bond. Then a third-person narrator takes over. Court, who works for a "nonexistent sector of the CIA," is heading for a meeting in Hong Kong on his way to meet his intended "China doll" bride. Plot, counter-plot and conspiracy theory intertwine from this first discussion, with fictionalized real-world terrorism coming under curiously confident suspicion. Special effects abound in the threat of super-weapons, high-speed car-chases, and "B-52s bombers landing two thousand pound bombs."

This is probably not a book for readers who find misused words distracting or prefer to keep their real-world events and opinions separate from the fictional world. The mixture of entertainment and conspiracy theory probably works best for those not overly invested in a different point of view. But the short chapters move fast and the conclusion promises a fascinating direction for the sequel.

Mining the conspiracy theories of 9/11, Kensington Roth has created a rollercoaster of a thriller. The same forces that the conpiracists believe really caused 9/11, the government, the military, the corporations that thrive on war, are now ready for the next roll of the dice. 9/12 will be blamed on the Chinese as well as the Middle Eastern terrorists, creating a furor and desire for an invasion of the Chinese mainland.

Standing between this plan and the American people is Agent 006--Harrison Court. He has been given the authority to do anything it takes to make the United States safe, and that includes plots like this. His adversary is Desage, an ex-CIA agent now working for the other side.

The big twist is that unknown to those creating a false conspiracy, China really is an adversary. They have created a new weapon that silently kills and maims anyone in its path. Can Court and his Chinese lover thwart these plans and ward off deployment of this new weapon?

Roth has created a thriller that takes the reader on a breaktaking ride from Italy to China to the caves of Tora Bora. This book is recommended for readers of spy novels who like non-stop action.

BOOK TOUR REVIEW by Betty Gelean
"Able Danger" by Kensington Roth

Covert groups, spies on spies-the "Able Danger" series will keep the reader traveling the world. It opens with what appears to be a nice normal American suburban household which is suddenly disrupted in a very peculiar way. The family becomes an unwitting test subject.

Kensington Roth has taken a political debacle beyond its limits. His protagonist is a black-ops spy Harrison Court-006. Roth's book is a very compelling work of fiction that ties into reality very well. The style of writing is very descriptive, and the reader can picture whatever Court sees and encounters. The author's sense of place and time is exquisite, and the characterizations are believable and consistent.

The action grows all the way through the book. Court discovers some kind of super-weapon, Gravvox and must hunt down a rogue ex-CIA agent. The plot becomes a runaway train to locate the ex-agent and to learn the who, what, and when. A plausible scenario with a great and terrible surprise ending. Fortunately Roth is on his toes and the next book "Danger For 2" will be out soon because I can't wait to find out what direction the sequel will take.

Able Danger is not just another spy movie. It has the scheming government plotting against it's own country for the gain of a few people in the top ranks. The charming, sleek main character Harrison Court a.k.a 006 leads the story with such grace and adventure.

Harrison Court is James Bond smart, thinks on his feet, and is also sensitive and loyal. Author Kensington Roth steers the story with such elegance that many if not most spy thrillers lack. The book is a perfect ten.

The ending makes you crave for the sequel for the story. I eagerly anticipate the next installment of Able Danger called Danger for 2. I highly recommend this book to all Spy Thriller fanatics and also spy virgins. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

The Able Danger story is very well written. I read it twice and I'm really glad to hear the novel is in development for the movie. It has all the things you expect-car chase, exotic locations, sexy spy-girls, spies and a great charismatic leading man.

The reviews I read on other sites are right when they say, "Move over James Bond." The book is the new American Spy-Hero as Harrison Court-006 and his spy-girl Missong. I hope they get Johnny Depp to play Harrison and Maggie Q to play Missong. Kids and adults will really like this new blockbuster spy thriller better than the Bond movies in a whole different way.

I heard the Bond movies are not coming out anymore so Harrison Court-006 is just in time. I waiting to get the Harrison Court-006 Spy-Girls video game that's coming out soon. He'll introduce himself as...."The name is Court, Harrison Court!" I can surely see Johnny Depp saying that.

I got alot of info about the movie from the website and blog-

I read the revised edition on Smashwords. It was just as good with a new scene just for the movie.
