When Jack and Bear first meet in a new training program, both barely out of boot camp, they don’t like each other. Over 10 weeks of intense torture......oops, I mean training, they are the only two to make it through the program. Their first couple of missions bond them together as a investigative/killing team. Paranoia keeps them from making too many mistakes, but they are tested to their limits, from Turkey to Eastern Europe. An exciting, suspenseful, and tantalizing spy novel!!
Their first mission required that they assassinate a US government official and then evade and escape via plans their superiors had arranged. However, it turns out they were set-up by their trainer and had to figure it out for themselves. Their failure would result in life sentences for murder if caught and the agency could not help them. They eventually escaped and returned to the training center for answers, here, the trainer tells them that the mission was a final exam and that they both passed, but now, their trust in their superiors was debatable.
Their real first mission required them to travel to Turkey and Hungary to locate and free a high-level agent who was captured ten days earlier. From that point on, the story evolves into one hell of a tale with many twists and turns, dead-ends, double crossing agents and dead agents turning up along the way. This story is riveting with edge of your seat suspense. Jack and Bear can trust no one or find any support along the way. They were on their own and evidently set-up for failure - Individuals were expecting them to fall like many of the other agents they've encountered so far. For Newbies, they exceeded everyone's expectations, and what they stumbled upon at the end was a jaw dropping discovery for everybody.
Well done, Mr. Ryan. Looking forward to your next installment in the coming months.

The First Deception is a prequel. It takes the reader back to the beginning of the trust and friendship of Jack and Bear. I highly recommend that you follow Noble and Logan as they learn the guile, the physical skills, and a healthy mistrust of the CIA underworld that will keep them alive for the years to come.
May I suggest that you start reading The First Deception early in the day because once you start reading this suspenseful novel, you won’t be able to stop! This is a fabulous thriller…well written…cleverly paced…and a “doggone” fun read! You will not want to miss L. T. Ryan’s The First Deception!
I would love to know both Bear and Nolan personally. Both characters are well thought out . Principled and I bet could be tons of fun at a party. The stories they could tell I can’t wait to read.
There are many twists and turns, dead ends, dead people, double and triple crosses, And you begin to learn how Bear and Noble think, feel, and justify the work they do for their country. I truly enjoyed this book, and eagerly look forward to the next.
