Targets of Deception ~ by Jeffrey Stephens

In his debut novel, Targets of Deception by Jeffrey Stephens hits a homerun! It is a thrilling and suspenseful ride, which made it difficult to put down! There are great twists and memorable characters. It is fast-paced and action packed. The story is so well written, it is almost hard to believe that this is Stephens’ first book. The topics of international intrigue and terrorism are hot right now, and Targets of Deception is at the front of the pack! I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of this genre.

Note: Unlike most of my reviews, Targets of Deception is not specifically geared toward Christian readers. There is a small amount of profanity used in the book.

This book was provided to me for review by Ascot Media Group.


Targets of Deception
Jeffrey Stephens

When Jordan Sandor resigned from active service with the Central Intelligence Agency, it was before 9-11, before the fall of Saddam Hussein, before the world had so dramatically changed. He is reluctantly drawn back into action, when a series of violent events leads him to search out a new al-Qaeda conspiracy to initiate a new wave of cataclysmic assaults with poison gas.

Sandor follows the deadly trail from New York to Florida to Paris and, ultimately, to the small town of Portofino on the Italian Riviera. Never sure who he can trust and who may be an enemy, Jordan relies on his experience, instincts and skills as he risks his life to uncover plans for attacks against the United States and its allies. The terrorist strategy is cunning and far-reaching, with the lives of millions of people at stake. When Sandor discovers a rogue agent behind the plot, he realizes he is the one man who can prevent the catastrophe.
