The Last Chameleon by James North

The Last ChameleonThe Last Chameleon by James North
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As the second novel in the Vanguard series my expectations were high, unfortunately James North has missed a great opportunity to deliver a worthy follow on story. The storyline is an excellent idea but the book has not quite delivered the exciting thriller to the standard of Deep Deception. Vanguard a secret organisation formed after the ending of the Cold War, is tracking down illegal nuclear supplies to Iran and North Korea and deploys Caroline Dupre on her first important mission. I think this is where it goes wrong, the lead character does very little for the mission until late in the day, with all the detective work and heroics being completed by others in the organisation - the lead character needs to do this. It is still a good book with the author getting hold of current issues, highlighting the problems in the world today driven by power and greed.
