Because I have just finished Operation Sunset and this book apparently is a predecessor to it, I did not complete this book. However, I did learn all of the characters names and find that it actually is a good set up to the next in line to that of Operation Sunset. I must mention that I only purchased this on February 1 and began to read it on February 9 after just finishing the previously mentioned novel.
I really like the characters and lead up to the next novel. I find that each novel is a story unto itself without the necessity of having to read them in order.
I love techno-thrillers. I've been reading them since Tom Clancy was a name that was just breaking into the bestseller list. I recently just heard of the name Leslie Wolfe and when I read the great reviews, I knew I needed to check this book out. I can definitely say it ranks right up there with the best names in the business like Crichton, Suarez, and Preston. The characters are fantastically written and the suspense is unrelenting. With the current pressure between the United States and Russia over the bombing of Syria, this book becomes even more unsettling. I really had a great time with "The Backup Asset" and will be back for more from Leslie Wolfe.
Another brilliant book of Ms Wolfe which I thoroughly enjoyed - it has the smart and talented heroine, entirely plausible and frightening espionage plot and 100 percent accurate assessment of how Russia plans to cripple the US.
The Backup Asset is a book worth reading to be aware of what might happen ...
I loved the book and could not put it down. I liked the fact that the author had 2 strong women play key roles in the book. Additionally, I felt that the book had a very plausible plot, the theft of high end technology. The twists and turns kept me turning the pages to see what happened next. If you like Vince Flynn or David Baldacci, this book will be a new favorite.
An entertaining read, moved along quickly. I haven't read the previous books in the series so I felt some of the characters weren't as fully developed as they could have been, but the book still stands alone.
Great character development. Compelling plot ripped from today's headlines. Good use of Russia's history as well as U.S. deterioration of preparation and useless armaments. Not fond of one sentence paragraphs and extensive use of discriptures.
