About: Talia Inger is a rookie CIA case officer assigned not to the Moscow desk as she had hoped but to the forgotten backwaters of Eastern Europe–a department only known as “Other.” When she is tasked with helping a young, charming Moldovan executive secure his designs for a revolutionary defense technology, she figures she’ll be back in DC within a few days. But that’s before she knows where the designs are stored–and who’s after them. With her shady civilian partner, Adam Tyler, Talia takes a deep dive into a world where only criminal minds and unlikely strategies will keep the Gryphon, a high-altitude data vault, hovering in the mesosphere.
Even Tyler is more than he seems, and Talia begins to wonder: Is he helping her? Or using her access to CIA resources to pull off an epic heist for his own dark purposes?
In this Ocean’s Eleven-meets-Mission Impossible thriller, former tactical deception officer and stealth pilot James R. Hannibal offers you a nonstop thrill ride through the most daring heist ever conceived.
My Review of The Gryphon Heist (Talia Inger #1) by James R. Hannibal:
At the start this was somewhat boring and then it started to pick up and I was enjoying it quite a bit until it got to the little black dress part, and I’m sorry but I don’t need that image in my head, it’s bad enough to see but I’m not going to read about a character who dresses in such a way that makes me uncomfortable, and there is a guy thatis making some remarks that suggests Talia go to his house with him, and I expected better of this book. My apologies but this is not a book I can enjoy, finish, or recommend.
Rating: 1 and 1/2 stars since it was enjoyable up until then.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review and am happy to provide my honest thoughts.
