The Shadow Cartel by Layton Green
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A very well layered CIA thriller. There's a complexity to both he characters and the story that changes how you read the story. The character's emotional investment is clear, and heightens the reader response. What's more is that all the characters are likeable, they're all flawed people, but their subtleties are compelling. The antagonist characters are less well developed in places, but their motives are nonetheless clear. If you like action-thrillers, this is one for you. The action never stops. My only qualms are: I want to know what happens to Charlie. And I would have liked more graphic histories of Grey and Lana.
