High Treason is one of the best novels I've read in a long time. Brian Gray and his four man team are assigned a snatch and grab or assassinate operation in Syria. Descriptions of the abject horror inflicted on the citizens are detailed and thought provoking. The team accomplishes its mission and captures a high-ranking terrorist leader. But there is a high price paid by the team. After his return to the US Brian Gray learns he and his team were caught up in a bizarre plot originating back in Washington D.C.
Three men plan to throw the U.S. government into chaos for their own personal gain. Their diabolical method cost the lives of thousands of US Government employees and the exposure of many CIA personnel.
The plot is well thought out and action packed. The descriptions are a bit gruesome but realistic.
The editing and sentence structure are far above average.
Character development is exceptional for the good characters and the villains. And the villains are self-serving maniacs.
The plot is fast moving and sweeps the reader along at a fast pace.
Details are abundant and in-depth.
Research is evident in the workings of the CIA operations and structure.
The writing style is thought provoking and fast paced.
I thoroughly enjoyed High Treason and highly recommend it.
