Jeffrey Stephens’ deftly rendered new novel plunges the reader into a deadly maelstrom of secrets, lies and shadows. Targets of Revenge (Gallery Books) tells the story of top CIA agent Jordan Sandor, whose quick intelligence and lethal skills charged the pages of Stephens’ first two novels, Targets of Deception and Targets of Opportunity. Stephens paints this secretive and dangerous world in vivid and realistic language. A natural born, exceptional storyteller, he has been endorsed by the #1 New York Times best-seller, Vince Flynn.
All the bureaucratic scolding in Washington cannot stop resourceful CIA Agent Jordan Sandor when he’s hungry for revenge. This time he’s on the hunt for the cold-blooded sociopath known as Adina, whose indiscriminate slaughter of innocent people, including Sandor’s close friend, represents humankind at its worst.
Mobilizing a team of skilled and dedicated agents to carry out this secret operation, Sandor flies in the face of his superiors’ stern warnings — ultimately crash-landing in the heart of the Venezuelan jungle. Armed with little more than a combat knife and an automatic weapon, he infiltrates Adina’s camp and discovers the ruthless terrorist is smuggling not only cocaine into the United States but a deadly substance that could cost tens of thousands of lives as well.
More focused than ever, Sandor embarks on his perilous mission, moving from South America to the Middle East, then to Russia and Mexico, eluding assassins and escaping capture in his efforts to prevent this attack. In the end, when he uncovers the realities of Adina’s deranged plan for a catastrophic assault on New York City, Sandor has no choice but to risk his life to protect his country’s safety and freedom.
Targets of Revenge leaves your heart pounding, again reminding us in terrifying detail that there are many who will go to any length to attack the United States.
