Another Great Book For the Summer! By April Switay, Jencey Gortney

Thank you to William Morrow for a copy of Homeland Carrie’s Run by Andrew Kaplan, in exchange for an honest review. 

How many of you are fans of Homeland?   Are you interested in seeing what Carrie is up to next?  Sit down and get comfortable as we discuss Homeland.

Synopsis:

“Beirut, 2006. CIA operations officer Carrie Mathison barely escapes an ambush while attempting a clandestine meeting with a new contact, code-name Nightingale. Suspicious that security has been compromised, she challenges the station chief in a heated confrontation that gets her booted back to Langley.
Expert in recognizing and anticipating behavioral patterns—a skill enhanced by her bipolar disorder she keeps secret to protect her career—Carrie is increasingly certain that a terrorist plot has been set in motion. She risks a shocking act of insubordination that helps her uncover secret evidence connecting Nightingale with Abu Nazir, the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq. Determined to stop the terrorist mastermind, she embarks on an obsessive quest that will nearly destroy her.” (Amazon)

My Thoughts: 

I enjoyed this book. It defiantly kept a good pace throughout the story. Carrie, the main character is a CIA agent who suffers from bi polar disorder. While looking into her friend’s death, it leads to possible terrorist activity both in the United States and in the Middle East.

The picture the author crated gives the reader the visual feeling along with the sights and smells of markets and alley ways of a busy Middle Eastern city, along with the suspense and danger of being a CIA agent.

The character Carrie is believable She loves her job and does not take no for an 
answer.

Rating: 

5/5
