This is Coonts's latest book, and it's currently #21 on the NYT Bestseller list for Hardcover Fiction. As you'll see if you read the synopsis below, it features Tommy Carmellini and Jake Grafton. Gerald HE WAS THE PERFECT SPY. He was the man who could bring down Bin Laden, the man who could smash Al Queda. Surrounded by fanatics in the heart of the beast, he believed in himself beyond any shadow of a doubt, believed in what he knew to be right with a faith that could withstand all adversity. He lived by his wits and played the double game to the last drop of blood. Or did he? When he is assigned to Paris, CIA officer Tommy Carmellini finds himself working for his old boss, Jake Grafton, who is the new CIA operations officer in charge of Europe. Grafton has a mission: He believes that the director of the French intelligence service has a secret agent among the leaders of Al Queda, and the Americans want access to that intelligence. Yet the director denies any such mole exists. While trying to ferret out the truth, Grafton and Carmellini are quickly cast into a labyrinth of espionage, deception, and murder. The French intelligence director has secret investments in the Bank of Palestine, and a killer is on the loose. If that weren't enough, the leaders of the G-8 industrialized nations will soon meet in Paris, an event that would make a tempting terrorist target. Throw into the mix the very beautiful and clever daughter of the French ambassador to Washington, an Israeli spy or two, and the stage is set for a tour de force of deception and drama in the world's most beautiful city: graceful, ageless Paris. NOTE: The last paragraph on page 276 appears to be missing a few words, but that is the way the text is written in the book. It is the author's/editor's mistake, and not a problem with the scan. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- No virus found in this incoming message.
