THE PERSIAN PROJECT is the third book that I have read in the Clint Jagger series. I found the story to be as engaging as the other two books, DEADLY PASSAGE, and SAKURA'S STRATAGEM. All three of these books are international thrillers, page-turners, with fast moving plots, and written by an author who obviously knows both the terrain of intrigue and that period we called the Cold War. In this third book, a prequel to the others, the author provides us with more of Clint Jagger's history as a Marine Vietnam veteran, and the unique skills he brings to the mission at hand. As a former Marine officer who served in Vietnam, and had the opportunity with work with SOG on occasion, I found the character of Clint Jagger to be well-drawn and authentic, one of those silent heroes from that period you don't read about in the history books. Let me assure you, contract operatives like Clint Jagger were real, often working behind the scenes in places like Laos, Angola, and in Iran during the turmoil of 1978 through 1979. We called them knuckle-draggers. But Clint Jagger is more than a knuckle-dragger for hire. He is a complex loner trying to do the right thing. Jagger's arrest by the SAVAK and subsequent torture in Evin Prison will have the reader at the edge of their seat. What I found to be particularly interesting in this story were Jagger's observations of the takeover of the U.S. Embassy and how the attempt to free the hostages ended in disaster. I also liked the way Jagger's role evolved by the end of the book from that of the cold, silent operative to that of a more complex, subtle facilitator of events behind the scenes, much in the tradition of John le Carre. This is a great read! I highly recommend the tale. Captain Dan Guenther, USMC

Format: Hardcover
The Cold War was rarely fought between Americans and Russians. "The Persian Project" is a novel of the Cold War, following American troops through Vietnam veteran Jagger as he works in Tehran to ease the violent and volatile state of the city and country of Iran during the late 1970s. A riveting novel with plenty of twists, turns, and actions, "The Persian Project" is not a read to be missed for action thriller fans.

The Persian Project might be fiction but it's grounded in reality and the author's own personal experience thanks to a job assignemnt in Tehran druing those explosive years The reader sees Iran in a way never before possible while history comes alive. Jagger is a sympathetic character with a touch of Bond, both invinceable and persistent. A great read, worthy of a film.
