A year later, Betty contacts Craig to let him know that his close friend and colleague, Ted Dunn (retired from the CIA), has disappeared while on secret assignment in Argentina; Craig agrees to go find out what happened to his friend and gets involved in a twisted plot of international intrigue laced with corruption, greed, and a struggle for supremacy at the cost of dozens of lives and the well-being of both the citizens of South America and the USA.
The Argentine Triangle is well-written, and is definitely an “edge-of-your-seat” novel. Not only is the story fascinating, but the characters are well-defined and believable.Read more ›
I like a good political thriller so I was glad to receive this book in exchange for an honest review.
The story started fast and is filled with action. The characters are interesting and the story holds you. The author paints the world for the reader; rich with history and detail, including much of the darkness. In the characters we find corruption, power, greed and revenge as well as dedication, devotion and loyalty as driving forces. This was my first Allan Topol book, so I was a little lost in some of the character's backgrounds, but it did not deter from the story. If you are like me and always want to know more, I would suggest reading the books in order so that you had all of the back story.
I enjoyed reading the book and would readily read more from this author.
Having a wife from Argentina and paying frequent visits there are some minor flaws that are somewhat personal nitpicking 1. Argentine's do not eat rare steak, always medium well to well. 2. The drive from Montevideo to Buenos Aires is far longer than a couple of hours and there is border patrol at the bridge. I would have chosen another method to cross into Argentina.
Craig’s new career as CIA Director comes to an abrupt end when he becomes a political scapegoat for President Treadwell and his closest advisor, Edward Bryce. Fearing for his safety, Craig undergoes dramatic plastic surgery to conceal his identity and amid concerns for his longtime girlfriend Elizabeth, they mutually agree to (temporarily) end their relationship. Now pursuing his longtime dream of racing cars , he agrees to his old friend and current CIA Director Betty Richards request to uncover the truth behind the disappearance of an undercover agent (and friend) in Argentina.
Page’s investigation leads directly to General Alfredo Estrada and his sidekick Colonel Schiller. Estrada’s career began during Argentina’s Dirty War and he is once again poised to stage a coup and put Argentina’s leadership back in the hands of the military. Following an important discovery that could lead to a substantial financial windfall for Argentina, Estrada begins to implement his diabolical plan. Manipulating a young journalist into helping him carry out his nefarious plot, Estrada has ensured Edward Bryce’s co-operation with procuring arms for Argentina.
With the operation completely off the books, Page relies heavily on his instincts and a few contacts as he delves into Estrada and Schiller’s scheme. Unsure who to trust, Craig is forced to make risky decisions that could have devastating results. He is, at first, primarily concerned with Ted’s whereabouts but once he uncovers the truth about Estrada, he is compelled to stop him from carrying out a devious plan that could have catastrophic consequences.Read more ›
