Betrayal (Tim Tigner Standalone Thrillers) Kindle Edition
This really is a cracking story, and you will keep turning the pages to find out what is going to happen next. I was lucky enough to read it whilst not at work, otherwise this is the kind of book to stay awake for 'just a few more pages'. It will stop you from sleeping and you will be glad of it.
-- Chrissi for BookLore Review
"As good as anything I've read from other thriller legends such as Tom Clancy." -- Jan Hearton
There is not a dull moment in the book. The story is intellectually stimulating and the writing is cogent. All the characters contribute in their own unique way to the pace, intensity, depth and complexity of a gripping story that is sure to pull you in.
-- M. Madhavan for Readers' Favorite
"A pulse-pounding thrill ride!" -- Frances Edge
The book is a tantalizingly dangerous thriller and perhaps part of its danger lies in the fact that it seems a little too plausible for comfort in today's political and terrorist-themed world. It's no surprise that Tim Tigner was once a Green Beret and specialized in counterintelligence - his expertise drives the story onward through some complicated waters and makes it totally realistic. This is the second time I've read a Tim Tigner novel and it seems to me his works are begging to be made into action movies - they have all the elements to keep viewers in their seats, if only on the edge.
--Valerie for ValerieTalksBooks
"An edge of your seat thriller." -- Leslie O'brien

I loved Odi from the beginning, even his little tantrum was excusable given his circumstances. The story was quite engaging and I couldn't put it down! It was very well written and other than one small scene that I can't give details about without giving spoilers, but involving the Creamer, I like how the siblings weren't wrapped in invincible plot armor but actually had to come up with solid, creative solutions to their situations.
A great book that I'll be recommending to others. I may even look up others by this author later.
The characters are well developed, yet they show a strong sense of battling with a conscience, making them markedly human in the process.
I was hooked from the first chapter. Recommended reading
Tim Tigner always delivers great action and compelling stories. Betrayal is no exception.
But unlike his other novels, I found it hard to like the main protagonist. Odysseus Card is indeed betrayed in the early part of the novel which puts him on a path of revenge against those who purposely caused the death of his team in Iran. This includes a group of corporate CEOs and one high government official. While what happened to Care was despicable, his actions that follow left a bad taste in my mouth.
Tigner did a decent job of character development here. That is always one of his trademarks. In this case the bad guys are even more fully developed than the good guys. Their motivations are evil, but easier to understand than Carr's. The one character I found totally sympathetic is Carr's twin sister Cassie. She is torn between her brother, her lover and professional ambition. But her dilemma is really the secondary focus of the story.
Recommended for readers who like a good thriller. While not the strongest entry in Tigner's catalog, I think you will find this worth your time.

This has more twists and turns than an alpine track - too many in my view. The short chapters end mostly with a cliffhanger, to be picked up a couple of chapters later with the improbable escape/ resolution.
As a thriller, it is engaging enough, but apart from too many twists, my main complaint is there is nothing credible in my view about the main characters. A novel that doesn’t bring its characters to life fails, even as a thriller. It is well written and engaging, pacy and inventive, but ultimately fails because the characters don’t come to life, and I just could not believe all the twists in the plot.
So here again I have find another great author alongside some great action reads this year from Brad Thor, Ben Coes, Mark Greaney and favourites Tom Wood, Mark Dawson, Simon Kernick, Victor Methos, J.B Turner, Lee Childs, Will Jordan, Daniel Silva, David Baldacci Matt Rees and Emlyn Rees.
What makes me give a five star?
If I am reading a book and cannot wait to read the next chapter, I want to stop everything to carry on reading, well then you know you have a book that is good!
Written by a former Green Beret and Military Intelligence Specialist, Betrayal combines Vince Flynn’s hard-core covert action with Nelson DeMille’s/David Baldacci's gripping drama in a thought provoking and suspenseful and action packed thriller.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO
if you awoke after a mission . . .
in an Iranian hospital . . .
as the only survivor . . .
of a terrorist attack?
FBI AGENT Odysseus Carr is about to find out.
But should Odi trust the man who saved him . . .
or the man who sent him . . . or none of the above?
The epic story is full of everything, twists, shocks, action, brutal at times violence, rollercoaster pace, a great action lead, Cassi an FBI Profiler and twin sister to Odi..
This is one man's great battle, it seems impossible battle against the "Big Boys", the system, who to believe, who to trust, how to survive, and that's just Odi, at the same time Cassi, does not know what to believe anymore !
Just loved the book and the author and gone straight in to "Pushing Brilliance"
