JACK BE NIMBLE: THE CRYSTAL FALCON JACK BE NIMBLE: THE CRYSTAL FALCON by Ben English
Circling ever closer to a truth concealed behind layers of conspiracy, assassination, and horrific acts of global terrorism, Jack Flynn and his team of clandestine covert operatives are on the run, barely ahead of the forces of a vast global enterprise engineered to bring about anarchy and the destruction of the free west.
In Cuba, fueled by an ancient vengeance, a ruthless crime lord sets in motion a plan to assassinate the leader of the worlds newest democracy. Jack strikes at the heart of this plot only to find himself face-to-face with the woman he thought lost to him forever. Together, Jack and Mercedes are on a collision course with a terrifying criminal mastermind whose strategies are already in motion and far, far ahead of schedule.
The Crystal Falcon is the third book in the Jack Be Nimble thriller series.
The Jack Be Nimble series follow the story of celebrity actor Jack, who just so happens to also help solve international crimes. Along with the Lois Lane-like Mercedes, who is not only pretty, but insanely intuitive. The reader does not only get personal relationships between the characters. But world wide travels, detailed and researched plot lines and a rather ingenious villains.
The third book in the series spends a lot of time in Cuba. It was gripping from the very first page in which we are exploring a vacated island in which the tenants moved out very recently, and very fast. Food still rotting in the fridge and possessions strewn around in each of the houses. But what about the insanely detailed clean up job of removing all technology, wiring and electronics. But with there is still one paper, jammed in the back of one of the desks that has some clues. Fingerprints.
It's really hard to put down these books, they are action packed with just a great amount of research and detail put into them that it's bound to keep your eyes glued to the pages.
While the previous books took us from Paris, London, San Francisco, this book does a lot of focusing on Cuba. It is somewhere I haven't read much about and I enjoyed the writing that makes you feel like you are actually there. There is so much detail and visuals in the writing it's really hard not to lose yourself.
If you enjoy international thrill writers like Dan Brown, I recommend you give this series a try. You'll pretty much be hooked after book one. You Welcome.
