Executive Order by Max Allan Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Four CIA agents are caught in a border incident in Eastern Europe, but why and who sent them there? The President did not authorise the mission and the Secretary of the Interior is murdered, what is happening? This is a very fast paced exciting political thriller full of conspiracy and misguided patriotic nonsense that seems to only exist in America. Reeder and Rogers are old partners who suspect something is awry when their separate cases appear to be connected, and Reeder who is hired directly by the President is very quickly targeted for elimination by an unknown group. The race is on for the attackers to be identified and neutralised. Throughout the book the author maintains the pace, action and the easy to read writing style. Everything is straight forward with no jumping back in time or dream sequences, it is my type of book, a pleasure to read. Recommended.
