Accidental CIA agent Charles Jenkins is back in Russia in The Last Agent, the second book in his spy thriller series.
Charles is exonerated from charges of espionage in a US federal court. In the last book, his former company, CJ Security, had unknowingly worked for a CIA shell company. That led Charles to Russia. Once there, he was lucky to escape with his life. And he wouldn’t have been so lucky without the CIA clandestine agent Paulina’s help.
So when the CIA approaches Charles again, he isn’t interested until he learns Paulina is in danger in the infamous Russian prison, Lefortovo. There is only one problem. To save Paulina, Charles must rely on Victor Federov. Victor was the Russian agent who had chased Charles after his escape from Russia in the last book. Now fired from his agency, Federov insists there are no hard feelings between him and Charles. But is he telling the truth?
The Last Agent is an exhilarating thrill ride into the hidden Russian world of espionage. The book is highly recommended for its genuine characters, full throttle pacing and exciting conclusion. 4 stars!
