Serpents in the City by H.N. Wake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
CIA agent Mac Ambrose is back in the U.S. and is asked by her friend to investigate a sex scandal video blackmail on a sitting Senator. Still trying to normalise into life back home Mac starts to uncover that things are not what they seem. On the surface a large media organisation appears to be involved in the blackmail. As Mac is operating without authority she draws attention from her bosses who want to know more, complicating her investigation. She teams up with her old tech support and his girlfriend adding a humorous element to a very dangerous task. This book feeds off the politics that runs the US government, full of conspiracy, double dealing and cross agency mistrust. The author has written another very good story in this series, full of intrigue and complex scenarios. Not planned by the author, but the whole story could sit nicely unnoticed into the current Presidential campaign – scary.
