Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

A pulse-pounding thriller of espionage, spy games, and treachery by the New York Times bestselling author of the Tracy Crosswhite Series.

Former CIA case officer Charles Jenkins is a man at a crossroads: in his early sixties, he has a family, a new baby on the way, and a security consulting business on the brink of bankruptcy. Then his former bureau chief shows up at his house with a risky new assignment: travel undercover to Moscow and locate a Russian agent believed to be killing members of a clandestine US spy cell known as the seven sisters.

Desperate for money, Jenkins agrees to the mission and heads to the Russian capital. But when he finds the mastermind agent behind the assassinations--the so-called eighth sister--she is not who or what he was led to believe. Then again, neither is anyone else in this deadly game of cat and mouse.

Pursued by a dogged Russian intelligence officer, Jenkins executes a daring escape across the Black Sea, only to find himself abandoned by the agency he serves. With his family and freedom at risk, Jenkins is in the fight of his life--against his own country.

   Law and Disorder
The first half of the EIGHTH SISTER dominates Russia, spycraft and the perils of foreign travel. A trial makes the other half up. Dugoni tells a compelling, believable story. I wish he had spent more time on the emotional lives of characters and less on the factual underpinnings of what was happening. But still a worthwhile read.
   Ok...just a little disappointing
The plot line attracted me to the book, as I enjoy'spy chase'thrillers. However, it did not go on this way really. In the first half of the book, the main character is recruited for a mission, executes the mission with the requisite surprises written in, then runs for his life with the Russians in pursuit. The second part of the book is watching the main character being charged with espionage and other crimes related to his trip to Russia and his lawyer defending him in court. Thought the main character needed to be more active in searching and investigating to uncover the mole. But his arrest restricted his movements. With the amount of court scenes and lawyerly maneuvering it began to feel like a Grisham book.
   Fair Thriller
My boyfriend read this and said that it was filled with plot holes. The character seemed to act in a dumb way for one who had been an espionage expert -- even if it was years ago. The writing was also draggy in spots.
Everything that happens is just so incredibly predictable, that i didn 't stop the wompering when the true twist would emerge. It never did.
   US national security and lives are at risk. Someone has to act immediately.
A page-changing action as a former CIA officer is sent back to Russia to find the identity of the eighth sister. The chase begins to escape the information and a huge surprise awaits on returning to the states. All is not as difficult as it seems to the FBI and the FBI launches an investigation with serious jail time at the end. Well crafted and funny to read and well worth the time.
   Unbelievable dive scene ... at least do some basic research
It is quite obvious that the author has no knowledge of diving practices or has not used a subject matter expert to read the elements of diving. As a dive professional, I find his description of the dive sequence in this book to be full of false and unsafe information and completely outside the realm of reality.
   Great thriller from beginning to end!
The book is engaging from page one. It is really a page turner. Charles Jenkins, I love the main character. He is a man of integrity, nobility and true grit. I appreciate the scriptural reference that will set you free. Mr Dugoni, thank you for writing!
   Part spy, part courtroom. Decent effort
Part Spy - novel, part court drama, part family story. Have to say that the spy story enjoyed the best. Overall, very well done. Not all threads completely wrapped up in the end, which seems to be par for the course for any spy thriller these days, but still could function almost as a decent standalone book. All these writers could learn from Daniel Silva, who manages to carry a character through, but still writes his books as solid standalones.
   Too much political propaganda sadly
I had been a huge fan of Dugoni's, read all of his books and was waiting for this release. There is far too much political propaganda. Had I wanted to read the government - propaganda - fiction that I would read just the news. The government pays Hollywood, major league sports venues, etc millions to spread for them - have they added successful fiction writers to their stable? I was saddened to think that this could be the case.
   An edge-of-your-seatbinternational espionage thriller!
John Grisham is a great storyteller with Robert Dugoni '' like skills. The plot involving CIA and Russian FSB spycraft is very well put together. It involves a remembered CIA agent and is filled with numerous gut-wrenching twists and turns. All characters are memorable and the author draws with a wise, easy-to-follow dialogue in the reader! Don 't miss this little gem!
