(All reviews are our own, honest opinions.)

When we return to the life and world of Charles Jenkins we learn that, luckily, he has been exonerated. All should be well as the retired man focuses on his family, right? Well, that wouldn’t be much of a story. If you haven’t read book one and are looking for an edge of your seat espionage novel, start with The Eighth Sister. Then join me with The Last Agent.

When news and suspicion reach Charles, that a woman is locked up in Moscow’s notorious Lefortovo Prison he wonders if it could be Paulina Ponomayova, who we met in book one. She sacrificed herself to save him and now Charles has a debt to clear. He can’t be certain if it is her but if it is he needs to get her out.

Dugoni succeeded in once again presenting me with a spy story I could be invested in. I started as a fan of his Tracy Crosswhite series (no surprise there as it’s a crime thriller series) so when I saw The Eighth Sister I picked it up, trusting Dugoni more than the genre. If you’re like me and spy novels aren’t always your cup of tea give this series a try.

With well-written characters, fantastic plot, surprises every time you think you know what is coming and moments that will have your heart racing as if you’re the one in danger you really can’t go wrong with the Charles Jenkins series.

Thank you to NetGalley and Thomas & Mercer for the ARC of The Last Agent. The book will be published on September 22nd, 2020.

About author

Brittney Soban

Brittney is a writer, reader and general lover of all things that end up printed on a page. With a few published poems and a lot of unpublished stories and novels she spends her days doing a nine to five job while wishing she was home working on the worlds she loves to create. As “punishment”, her and her brothers were banned from watching television for a week, leading to Brittney deciding that the free books at the library were better than TV and, in a very Matilda fashion, she took home loads of books every day and has never looked back. A reader of all types of literature, she will read practically anything put in front of her as long as something within it, no matter how small, sparks her interest. Give her high fantasy, science fiction, mystery, it doesn’t matter, but her love does lie within the fantasy and YA genres. A series junkie on top of everything else, she picks and chooses when to begin a series based on how many standalone books also await her attention in her to be read pile. Once she starts a series she will read every installment available back to back until she finishes a series or is forced to wait for the next publication. Called a book dragon by her boyfriend, the term is fitting as she owns more books than anything else and is quite sure her obituary will state she died under an avalanche of books. She truly wouldn’t have it any other way.
