Book Description

With an attack against the Las Vegas Monorail, CIA Director Alexandra Dupuis calls in the agent she counts on in dangerous situations – even though that agent feels betrayed by the very government she serves, the very country she protects – in order to protect American interests.

In Jaclyn Johnson’s latest adventure, Dupuis sends the secret agent into the path of a radical Christian terrorist, one whose designs for Sin City would spell disaster for not only the entire southwest, but for the country as a whole, too.

Double Agent is third book in the Snapshot series, preceding Federal Agent.

5.0 out of 5 stars An engrossing read April 26, 2012
By TCS
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book at the end of last year and was astounded by the intrigue, the plots, and the characters. I hadn't read thrillers in a while, not since my early days reading Don Pendleton's Executioner Mack Bolan, and this brought back memories of those but with a slicker plot and a female protagonist. Jaclyn Johnson could easily become my wife if she existed in the real world. A badass, bold, beautiful and she can put out with the best Bond has to offer. I plan to read the rest of the series, but one thing to be aware of. It's refreshing to know I can pick up any of these books and not be lost, because if they're like this one, they can stand on their own. Well done, Mr. Sweeney.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jaclyn saves the world (or Las Vegas) again!! March 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the third outing for CIA Agent Jaclyn Johnson, codename Snapshot. After being outed as a traitor in the last book, Jaclyn has been in hiding for the last month. Now reinstated and exonerated by the President, she has been hired to save Las Vegas from a group of religious zealots. First the newly-built monorail is destroyed, then a couple of gay clubs. Then word gets to Jaclyn that they have their sights on something much bigger. Can she save the day? With Tom Messingham from MI5 on board as her partner, it's a race against time!

This was great. I have read all the 'Agent' books so far and I have to say they just keep getting better each time! This one set off at a blistering pace and didn't let up until the final, shocking ending. Jaclyn is, as always, excellent as the female James Bond type. This time she is joined (again) by Tom Messingham from MI5, who also played her love interest. This allowed us to see another, softer side to her character. Who knew she was vulnerable after all? In situ as usual were the usual fast cars, gizmos and gadgets commensurate with her job.A fantastic romp and a darn good thriller. Please may we have more?

A great read for fans of Jaclyn, if not give the 'Agent' books a go, they are fabulous!

5.0 out of 5 stars another winner November 28, 2011
Format:Paperback
Sweeney comes through again with another action packed thriller! Jaclyn is busy trying to put a stop to the terrorists trying to destroy Vegas and finally gets busy with her British boy toy. And of course she's got a hot car with all the bells, whistles and missiles attached. There are so many people to hate in this book and he leaves you knowing there will be a book 4. When I grow up I wanna be just like Jaclyn!

5.0 out of 5 stars Double Agent November 29, 2011
By BigAl
Format:Kindle Edition
The Jaclyn Johnson novels partially follow the same formula as Ian Fleming's James Bond novels, with their overblown villains and sexy protagonist with a toolkit full of futuristic tricks-of-the-trade. By moving the setting to the future (albeit, just a few years) and making his protagonist a female, Sweeney has added his own twists to the formula. Rather than communists and megalomaniacal psychopaths with the goal of world domination, Sweeney gives us villains who are religious fundamentalist terrorists or megalomaniacal psychopaths with the goal of world domination. Sweeney's heroine shows her humanity and the chinks in her armor much more readily than Fleming's Bond. Where Bond's only nod to human frailty is an apparent sexual addiction (offset by his superhuman ability to bed a series of unbelievably beautiful women), Johnson makes mistakes. While she tries to hide it, she has doubts. And as for her sexuality, her upbringing stunted her development in this area, which is just starting to catch up to her peers in this third installment of the series.

In a thriller, the plot matters more than the character, and Sweeney has put together a good, fast-paced plot full of the usual action, weapons (including the infamous WOMTD aka weapons of mass transit destruction), and technological tricks. But what separates one thriller from the next is the characters. While I'd rather be James Bond, I'd much rather know Jaclyn Johnson.
