A CIA operative is double-crossed during a sanctioned assassination of a German businessman with ties to terrorists. His search for revenge reveals that he wasn’t the ultimate target, more a means to an end.
The Third Option feels like a Tom Clancy novel in many ways yet without the boring technical paragraphs. It started off well enough but it felt almost like an anti climax towards the end. I found that I wanted more but didn’t get it. The characters are OK but not outstanding. The book itself
felt more like the middle tome of a series rather than a stand alone. While it did make several references to previous books, it didn’t feel strong enough to be read by itself.
An enjoyable enough book, probably more enjoyable if read in series. I will definetly read the first ones to see if they help the story.
