Anyone who has read any of Tim's books knows that he is brilliant. Not only are his stories unique, but he has a command of the English language like few other authors. Reading is a passion of mine, as well as my business, but I always learn a new word or two from Tim. In this book, I discovered the word "ensorcelled." I had never seen it so immediately learned the definition and added it to my vocabulary.

I am looking forward to more creations from Tim and hope he never stops writing.

After the first book, Pushing Brilliance, set the bar high, this second thriller in the Achilles Healy series had a lot of work to do. But it did it! A fast-paced thriller, it kept me turning pages as quickly as I could manage.

In this story, Achilles takes on a top secret mission only to be betrayed and deemed a traitor. Chased by agents from both super-powers, he finds himself forming an unlikely alliance. Working with some high tech toys, he finds himself once more on a racing around the globe to beat the enemy. It even went through Portland to Seattle!

Tim Tigner has once again created a palpable sense of tension with strong writing and intriguing characters. Here's to more Achilles.

The second book in the Kyle Achilles series by Author Tim Tigner was filled filled with twists and turns. Many times leaving me wondering what the neck just happened? It also made me late getting back to work after lunch because I didn't want to stop reading! I can easily recommend this and the rest of the Kyle Achilles series but start from the beginning with Pushing Brilliance! Happy reading!

In the shadow world of spies, Tim Tigner is able to bring to life not only a fascinating but possible reality. When do enemies become allies? The story's circumstances forces the main characters to band together against a truly evil plot. With the various backgrounds and talents, the characters take the reader on quite a journey--one I would recommend to anyone. Just be prepared to 'lose time' while reading this spellbinding novel...putting the book down is difficult-- I look forward to reading more Tim Tigner's novels.

Again, I must say, tell your friends about Tim Tigner's books. If you're looking at The Lies of Spies, you must have read Pushing Brilliance, and maybe the Prequel to the series, Chasing Ivan. So, of course you are a fan. So the only thing left to do is get more people to read these books! Once again, as I've written before, you could read any of dozens of spy stories. Many other books have chases, desperate situations, codes, guns, kidnappings. But where else can you get this kind of writing: "Grachev clawed the air for answers with panic stricken eyes." Or this: "Then, with a satisfying pinch and an appropriate hiss, he extinguished both the flame and the chairman’s career." The imagery!

This book was great. I especially enjoyed the suspense and the intrigue and the exploits of the two main characters. We get to feel the anxiety and bravery of Achilles and Max in the way they accomplish their missions. The book is full of surprises, unforgettable action and feelings that come through in the author's portrayal of his characters.

Wow....I have read all of Tim Tigner's novels and The Lies of Spies is my favorite! The story of Kyle Achilles continues with a whole new, thrilling adventure. President Silver and Senator Collins call on Achilles to assassinate the Russian President, Vladimir Korovin. However, Korovin catches wind of this threat and sets a plan in motion involving a Russian actress to prevent Achilles of having a successful mission. The reader is introduced to some other new characters and my favorites are Max, a Russian spy, and Wang, a Chinese spy . Both of these new characters are witty, crafty and have a wonderful sense of humor. I had a hard time putting down this latest Achilles installment which was filled many great twists and turns! I would recommend this novel to any spy fan as I feel that you will not be disappointed.

WOW!!! Can't say enough about how fantastic this book is! My attention was grabbed from the first few lines and never wavered. The intensity of the drama was never dwindling and had me on the edge of my seat until the very end.
The plot was mysterious enough that I was not able to get ahead of it, but not so complex that it made the read cumbersome. Definitely a winner and must-read for anyone who enjoys the world of spies and international intrigue.

The first few chapters thoroughly set the stage for this heart throbbing book. Once the stage is set, hang on. You are in for a fast-paced thriller that will be hard to put down. This book has everything: Corrupt regimes, good-hearted bad guys, bad-hearted good guys, a wise president, beautiful women, and a hero that never quits. I guarantee that you will be longing for more when you reach the end of the book.

Based on the first two books in this series, I expected a lot and Tim Tigner delivered!. You'll have a hard time putting this one down. Intricate story line, non-stop action and a ton of plot twists you won't see coming.The characters are well developed and the dialogue is believable. When have you seen a book on the store that has nearly 300 five star reviews, less than 50 four star reviews and none less than that? The only bad thing is that I doubt we'll see many more of Tigner's books on Kindle Unlimited. He could, and undoubtedly will soon be commanding $14.99 for his digital downloads (yes, they are that good).

I have read 4 books by author Tim Tigner, I can say without out a doubt he is even better than Ian Fleming. I greatly admired Mr Fleming's work. His work is free from sex that only fill in the blank spots in a story's intrigue like many modern novelist. Mr Tigner creates so many twists that I was surprised and dug in deeper to the story. WoW I'm not going to give the plots away. You will be glad I left you in the dark.

The Lies of Spies is the second book in the Achilles series. This book can be read as a standalone. Though I highly suggest you read the first book (Pushing Brilliance) to have some of the backstory on Achilles. There is a lot of violence.

The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a good job of summarizing what happened in Pushing Brilliance for new readers to give them a better understanding of Kyle Achilles. It has well developed characters. There is a lot of history between characters that keeps you guessing what twists and turns will be revealed next. There is a lot of fast paced action along with some unexpected surprises as well. This book definitely kept me riveted and I had a hard time putting it down. This series is definitely worth reading.

I received a copy of this book and chose to write a review for other readers.

I read an early version of this book. There may have been some changes the final product. What I'm sure hasn't changed is the 'I can't put it down' excitement. Two world leaders each have a plan, but the main characters, as usual, are the ones picked to carry them out. Achilles is our guy. He is smart, determined, and in short the right man for the job.

The best part about the characters is that through it all, doing things I couldn't dream of doing, they are believable. Read the book and get to know them. Sit on the end of your seat, bite your fingernails, whatever it takes to try to put yourself in their shoes. Most of all, you will enjoy it from beginning to end. .

Spell binding, cliff hanger on top ot cliff hanger. The team of Tim Tigner and Dick Hill does it best. I use these stories to keep me in good shape by using just one rule. I don't get to listen unless I'm running. And I HAVE to run if I want to hear what happens next! Eight miles go by quickly and effortlessly. PS I've been doing this 8-mile run 6-days a week for years, and its left me a healthy 78 years old. Running this way works wonders for one's blood chemistry and physical condition. I just take it easy, run with a good pair of shoes, and listen as Achilles tries to figure out how to defeat another one of the Russian's plans to take the US down. Sounds timely, doesn't it? It is.

I just discovered this author. Based on.this book, he deserves to be in the top rank of thriller writers. His writing craft is nearly perfect' The plotting is sensational and totally credible. Characters evolve richly through action , not mere description . The story is gripping and page turning.

Highly recommended reading!

I love reading “series” books, especially if they are good (never want them to end - ha ha). I happened upon yours, and have read Pushing Brilliance and just finished The Lies of Spies which just offered me this free download. You are by far my new favorite author! I had trouble putting the last one down, and read every spare minute I had. So suspenseful that I found myself screaming out loud .. NOOOOO on several occasions! Can’t wait to start Falling Stars and the one I just downloaded. Not sure which to start first. 
Keep up the great writing!!
Your newest fan,

Kyle Achilles, quick of wit, agile bodied, and possessor of an alarmingly adept mind. Never will there be a lack of action or suspense when he's in the mix, and this story is no exception.
Adrenaline overload, fantastically twisted plot and delightfully real, multi-dimensional characters.
Riveting, compelling read which I cannot recommend highly enough!

Tim Tigner is a mastermind when it comes to a suspenseful novel! Kyle Achilles as an operative for the president is one bang up dude! This book was difficult to put down and one that had me wondering how Achilles and Max were going to get out of each glitch that seemed to be occurring throughout the read! Excellent! Can't wait for the next book to come out!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Spies and lies is one of the best I've read in a while. I couldn't bring myself to put it down for long. I had to keep coming back to see what was happening.
I highly recommend this series of books to anyone who enjoys a great thrill ride.

Very enjoyable story. Achilles and Katya continue their adventures. This time joined by Russian spies Max and Voya. I liked all the subterfuge, cons, double crosses and operations. It was interesting how Tigner weaved multiple plot lines through out the story. Achilles mission to assassinate Korovin, Max' sunset mission. Voya's honey trap of Achilles. President Silver's warrant for Achilles arrest. The gadgets. The locations. The stakes.

This was a political thriller at its finest. Achilles has his hands full when he is given an almost impossible task. Then unlikely cohorts appear and there emerges ingenious plans to save e our country, president and Achilles. Well written.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Next installment of the story between Kyle and Katya, Makes you think...what if? A great political thriller, fast paced and truly an exceptional read. I would recommend to anyone even if their favorite is not this type of genre. Nice to see a thinking man as the protagonist, even though he can (and does) handle himself and protect Katya.. But Katya is not a slouch in the protection department, she can handle herself against the bad guys. She is a beautiful woman with an extraordinary mind. Do not miss this one!
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
I had been wondering if the series would build on previous story lines, or just take off in random directions. I wasn’t disappointed, the characters remain consistent and the plots build on the previous work. You should read the books in order. As I discovered in the earlier entries in the series the writing is fast paced and a pleasure to read.

I normally don't read this type of book, but Tim Tigner knows how to captivate an audience. I always have to read his books in one session. He keeps me on the edge of my seat. Can't wait to the next one, but I'm going to make myself wait until tomorrow to start on it or I won't get anything else done.

Very good stories of espionage at its best and involving the highest positions in the world. Story is great, characters a bit too good to be true or a bit over the top evil, but isn't that what we like so it is easy to say these are the good guys and these the bad? No offensive language and very little sexual mention other than what you might expect for a couple of situations where it was appropriate. Thanks for that! Like that you see good win over evil.
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
Normally I don’t care for”spy” books but this author has a way of writing that pulls you in and makes you feel you really know the characters! Would recommend to anyone
wanting a reall believable story!

I can't wait for the next volume of the Achilles series! This book gets you hooked immediately and leaves you hanging at the end of each chapter... which explains why I was up until 4:30am to finish the book! Amazing research and intelligent characters pull you into their story. Once again, an amazing finish to the story that leaves you smiling.

Tim Tigner never fails to wow me with his writing skills. The Kyle Achilles series is always a page Turner. Lies of Spies, number 2 in the series, is a compelling, fast-paced, story that has our hero rushing all over the world on an impossible mission to save the world, especially his beloved USA, while trying to evade arrest himself. The ever turning and twisting plot complicated characters and unexpected surprises will keep pages turning. If you have never read Tim Tigner it's time to start. You can't go wrong with Tim !

This was a great book: intelligent, well-written, plenty of interesting plot twists - it kept me interested to the very end. With most books, I almost have to force myself to finish them, once the "big idea" or surprise is revealed and the only thing that carries the rest of the book is how well-written it is (and most books seem to peter out toward the end). I've read the 1st and 2nd Kyle Achilles books (and have downloaded the 3rd). So far, the 2nd one was definitely the best!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Tim Tigner hasn't disappointed me yet. I've read all his stories and they are all brilliant. This book is no exception. I love the unexpected friendship that blossomed between Achilles and Max, the Russian spy. They made a great team that put their mission on track. A mission that was fantastically thought out and twisted in unusual ways. I can't wait to see what Tigner comes up with next.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I lost sleep because I couldn't put it down. His writing is intelligent, really exciting and the plots are very intricate. Even when I close my Kindle, its hard to sleep because I'm anxious to read on, but its 12am!!!!

I loved this book! the store gave me the first Book 1 for free! Then I bought the 3 book set! This guy is an incredible writer! I agree with another reviewer. Tim's books are better than movies! Do yourself a favor and read all his books! That's what I plan to do. Maybe slowly I'll savor and devour Tim's top Spy novels of this century!!!

I loved this book! It was suspenseful and completely captivating from the first chapter to the very end, and the ending was so motivating that I actually started cheering out loud, all to myself! Haven't felt this enthused about a novel since Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp, my favorite until now.

andrea mckenzie
It's hard to create spy situations between the US and Russia that haven't been used in other novels. Tim Tigner manages to do that quite creatively in this fast moving thriller. Tigner's background with Russia, the military and international business and finance adds verisimilitude to a well crafted story. I'm looking forward to future books by this author. I'm sure the interesting characters in this novel will show up again.

Tim Tigner knows current events and potential terrorist plots. The Kyle Achilles series can continue for years and keep readers satisfied based on the two I've read. Achilles is credible as is his role as an undercover agent combating the ever present danger from terrorists. In this book we see how Russians have to fight both terrorism and their government.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
James Bond meets Jason Bourne meets Mission Impossible. Kyle Achilles rocks! Genius page-turning, action-packed plot with all the required hi tech gadgets and glamour. Awesome! Dan Brown and Michael Crichton have company.

Excellent story with several classic diversions in both plot line and anticipated solution to difficult problems. Logical steps from one problem to the thrilling solutions made for believable reading. Worth future looks at the author's follow-up tales.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Great ongoing character development. A very tough,intelligent and sensitive U.S. undercover agent. If you love Mitch Rapp you will love Achilles. Great plot, action and twists you do not expect. Do yourself a favor - read Pushing Brilliance and the free novella Tim Tiger then offers titled Chasing Ivan prior to reading this novel. All are top notch.

Really enjoy Tim's books. Have already read Pushing Brilliance, The Lies of Spies, and Chasing Ivan ... Courtesy of Tim ... Thank you, Tim. Just ordered Fallen Stars and look forward to continuing to follow Achilles in his exciting adventures ... Including his future with Katya! Fast paced, lots of plot twists to keep my interest. Find it hard to put Tim's books down.

This story is not as intense as some, but the quality of the story, the language, and word pictures, coupled with excellent characters makes up for it. I often had to stop and share a particular passage with someone, because it was just so funny or so apt. I read the story till the wee hours more than once to finally finish it.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This story was a real east/west treat for me! Lots of action and intrigue, a real page turner...kept me up way beyond my bedtime several nights!! Kyle Achilles is a multi-faceted character, a world class athlete, on top of a brilliant, focused and feeling hero. Tim Tigner tells the tale with intriguing knowledge and plenty of international excitement. Beautiful, smart and high action women round out the cast of characters. Can't wait to get my hands on the next installment!!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This thrilling story was so much fun to read. The characters felt real, because the writing was so well done. I would recommend this book to anyone that is looking for a fast paced well written adventure. Can't wait to see what Kyle is up to next.

Just finished both of Tigner's Achilles novels - in a record 3 days. Tim literally puts Lee Child, Tom Clancy & even Vince (RIP) Flynn's fine stand-in on the defensive with the superb plotting & brilliant character development found in all his works, esp. the first two Kyle Achilles novels. Don't even open the cover of one unless you can survive the result of finishing it in one fell swoop! [BTW, As a certified tech weenie, this is the first time I have reviewed anything on-line EVER! I am totally responsible for it's content, not Cheryl. Enjoy your reading, Mike

Excellent second story in the Kyle Achilles story line. The characters are believable; the action is ongoing and left me wanting to see what would happen next. I will definitely read more of Mr. Tigner's book and can't wait for the next Kyle Achilles book. (Will Max and Zoya be in the next one???)

janet laminack
Tim Tigner does it all here. An engrossing plot line fleshed out with exceptional characters.

In addition to Achilles, of course, we're introduced to his Russian counterpart Max. Katya has her own doppelganger in the beautiful fiancé of Max. They all click and make an impressive crew.

They rush through this Earth saving story with precision and elan.

All in all, a great read.

Thanks Tim. Keep 'em coming.

ThIs book was even better than book one (Pushing Brillance)! I could not put it down and finished it in only one day. I know I should savor it a bit as I am going to run out of Tim Tigner books quickly otherwise! The twists this book takes as Russia and the US battle it out kept me guessing with every page I turned.

Original. Unpredictable. Kyle Achilles is the man! Totally the kind of guy I hope is behind the scenes protecting our country. Such a dire hard patriot. This guy is the man, and I can't recommend him enough to my reading buddies. Next up is "Falling Stars" but I have top make sure I start it on a day that I have nothing to do cause I know I won't be able to putit down
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This was an amazing spy story that kept me on the edge of my seat. In his acknowledgments Mr. Tigner states that it is hard to surprise the readers without confusing them but I think he has accomplished that here. This novels keeps your brain spinning. Absolutely recommended.

This was a pretty complex story with lots of characters, but presented in an understandable way. I'll continue reading the books in this series. I really enjoy books by Tim Tigner even though there are a fair number typos.

What a ride! Others have already spoken of the plot, so I won't rehash that. I will say though that this is a non stop thrill ride with lot's of twists you don't expect. The Achilles books should be on every readers list of must reads. Tim Tigner has established himself right up there with Thor, Mills, Stinnett, Hamilton and Coes. If you're not familiar with any of them, you're reading the wrong books.

Once again Tigner grabs you by the short hairs and gets your attention. I read this book in its entirety on a flight to Mexico and spent my first day there reading his next book in the sun and i blame Tigner for my sunburn but it was worth it!

Tim Tigner is now on my all-time favorite authors list. He writes from experience and from the heart, a valuable combination. The characters are compelling and the plots inventive yet logical. Please keep writing, Tim, so I can keep reading.

janine phan
I have The Lies of Spies 5 stars because it was a tightly written book that had a great premise turned into an exciting storyline, and while it has lots of action you didn't get bombarded with overboard guts and blood.

Good followup to book one, and different enough to say that it is not a rehash of the same story. Looking forward to the next story.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Good Book! Mr Tigner does not pad the book with verbiage and descriptions. The plot moves. The characters are interesting and well developed plot that is almost real. You do not have to dispel your imagination.
A good enjoyable read that you can just kick back and relax.

I couldn't put this down. After then first Kyle Achilles book I thought it would be hard to have the second be any better and this was just as good. Knowledge way the author intertwined the stories and the plot was spellbinding.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I like the characters, the story is good, and the book is a really nice quick read escape vehicle.
Lots of action, drama, and just enough romance to make it interesting.
Just hope this author does not decide to kill all of his hero's girls.

Read all the books Tim Tigner wrote, they all excellent. Highly recommend to everyone to read them. But I had a hard time with this book, definitely it's not for the long ago retired female readers. Also what's going on between the Russians and our government over Syria, and hacking. Keep asking myself could this kind of conspiracy be happening or happen one day?

Finally, I have found an author that is at the same level as the great Vince Flynn. I've not enjoyed a pleasure read since his passing. I'm two books in and can't wait to start in on the next. Fascinating and thrilling at the same time. I felt like I was there. Do yourself a favor and read this and any other books by Tim Tigner.

This was an awesome book. I loved how it was so realistic and relevant to the world we live in today. The characters were great and I loved the interactions of the characters. I can't wait to read the next book.

Tim has a heart as well as the ability to write page turners. I like having warm feelings toward characters at the end of an engrossing thriller. I'll be following Tim's work in the future. He's kind of special.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Tim Tigner dies it again. Ex Cia operative Kyle 2. The unexpected twists and turns and great characters. I highly recommend if you’re into mysteries and thrillers. A rock climbing, thinking, able to be sauce, non military answer to “Jack Reacher.”
Thx Tim. Got me thru post op and surgical recovery and enjoyed every minute. At least the reading part.

Read the series

Great spy novel made even better with the team up of American and Russian spies working together - what could get better! The tech parts were a little confusing, but i got past them. Looking forward to the next Kyle Achilles #3.

Tim Tigner is one of the best authors in the international spy thriller genre. Every one of his books is a great read and a great ride. This one is no exception. His characters are compelling. The action is well plotted and nonstop. This being only the second book in the series, I'm look forward to following the Achilles saga for years to come.

Great story; a real page turner. Liked the interaction and collaboration between the American and Russian spies. Some twists in their plans to the point of seeming contrived. Otherwise, I loved the book. Gotta read the bio of Tigner, incredible. Will be reading more of his works, especially Achilles.
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
#1 was better. But this was still worth the read. Actually it is rather timely with all the Russia paranoia going on today. I really doubt however if the President has that kind autonomy. Nor is the accomplishments of the hero realistic. It it is fun to read.

At first I was confused and I almost put the book away. Then I looked at the title thought why not and stayed with the book. Oh boy glad I did, what a ride! My eyes are tired and blurry after reading the last third of the book. Bravo well done. Looking for the next Achilles novel to come.

2nd of 3 and better than 1st! Next is already on my plate!! After reading it I will read all of Mr. Tignor's books. All so far are awesum! Running out of superlatives!! Thank you for the great reads!!

This is just another no substance cheap spy action thriller, complete with a spy/assassin main character that works directly for POTUS. His assignment in this story is to assassinate the president of Russia, which is in retaliation for a failed Russian plot to cause POTUS to go blind. Presumably that action was covered in a previous book in the series Built up as the next coming in the summary, author Tim Tigner is favorably compared to just about every bestselling author of thrillers in the last decade or so. The truth however is that his writing is very amateurish. I downloaded this in error (thankfully it’s a Kindle Unlimited and the mistake didn’t cost me anything) and read the first 20 pages which was more than enough to see that this is not for me.
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
These are fun books, if a little far fetched. The protagonist are very competent. The villians are evil. I plan to keep reading them if more come. Highly recommended for action lovers who also enjoy complex plots.
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

The stories of the two spies come together nicely as the love story between Katya and Achilles grows. I liked the joining of forces for a common cause. The plot held my interest and did not end abruptly as some books do. It was an enjoyable read.

The author provided me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

A great read for fans of the spy genre with a lot of interesting characters, action and twists! This book delivers all the thrills a reader could wish for in escapism literature. Well done!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"Jamison hadn’t been this caught up in a story since debriefing with Seal Team Six after one of their Ukrainian ops." I was like Jamison while I was reading this book! There were so many twists and turns - loved the unpredictability of how the job would get done! And the very last "bad guy" to be exposed? Didn't see that coming! Thanks for the entertainment, Tim. Looking forward to more from you!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Another page turner, I used this book as an excuse to use the treadmill (since I don't have free time to read). I'm already into book #3 (after reading the novella in between (Chasing Ivan). Good, easy read!

I have read every book written by Tim Tigner. I truly loved them all. This last one, Lies of Spies, is even better than the others, if that is even possible. What a fascinating spy thriller! I recommend it to everyone. It is absolutely brilliant!

This was a spellbinding fast moving story. I just could not put it down. I carried it around with me just hoping for a chance to read anywhere. My only criticism would be sorting out the characters in the beginning. Loved it and looking forward to more.

I have read the first two books and find Achilles to be superhuman and Max ,too! To me, much of the things that transpire are so ridiculous and when the involvement of the tv reporter commenced, it took away some of the appeal of the story. Oh how I wish the U.S. Has such people looking after us!

It's totally amazing how well all the intricate details of this double spy story come together! Well written, incredibly deep, and wisely paced, Tigner's book is a classic and memorable. I can't wait to read his next book?

Take a very scary premise, add some evil international characters, mix in two strong female supports, tie it all together with two amazing heroes, add a dollop of romance and you get a five star, non-stop action thriller you can't put down!

These all start out as typical spy novels but I guarantee that you will not want to put them down until you have finished reading. The writer will keep the action changing a d you reading. Brilliant writing and I have read many authors. You will be happy you read these.

Who needs a super hero when we have Kyle Achilles? This book in my opinion is one of Tim Tigners best and it's the fourth book of his I've read. I cannot wait for another Achilles book to come out this year! I'm headed over to Tim's Pinterest board now!

Achilles encounters more than his share of fire, but with all the twists and turns, he leaps from frying pan to frying pan... Never a dull moment... Exactly what you'd expect from a born American superhero!

Author Tim Tiger has incorporated it all in this thriller, action, intrigue, loyalty, trust and teamwork. From high tech weapons to low tech subterfuge the story flies by at a breakneck pace... you can’t put it down....

After reading Pushing Brilliance I immediately turned to the sequel. I begin many books and finish few these days but Mr. Tigner knows how to write action and intrigue well. In the midst of my busy life I love having a great read waiting for me at the end of the day. Wrire on Mr. Tigner.

Tim's writing is improving with each book in the Kyle Achilles series. THE second was bette rthan the first. I am now reading Falling Stars, the third nd it is better than :ies of Spies. Keep them coming!!

At times this story seems so realistic that I felt it was happening now. Growing up durning the Cold War gave this story a very chilling feeling. It made me want to read more of Tim Tigner's stories.

Another Tigner thriller. Great edge of you favorite reading chair plot with bottomless action and carrot dangling romance! Achilles, Katya, and a surprise team make for formidable advisories in this adventure. He keeps you coming back for the ride of a lifetime.

Awesome twist of plot and characters to keep the reader inspired. Both actions and intrigue along with a patriotic mission keep you enthralled. A great book to enjoy the fictional life from today's tawdry politics.

I found this book to be a drag. I stopped several times to read something else. I did finish it, but I won't be reading anything else by this author. The plot seemed to revolve around Murphy's Law: "If anything can go wrong, it will. And at the worst possible moment."

Not very good. The plot was not so interesting and not very realistic. For example: when a character proposes to another just outside the door of the head of Russia. What was that about?? I'm not sure the age of the author but based on the book, I would guess 15? Maybe some of the author's other books are good. This one is not. I just was unable to become engaged with any of the characters. I read half but was unable to finish the rest.

I really liked the story line but there were points in the book that I felt didn't hold true to the Achilles character, like when he first woke up to Zoya out on the roof. And I did not like the ending. Max and Zoya's "new life" didn't make any sense.
★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
The plot of this novel has more holes in it than swiss cheese. Whether it is magically procuring high tech weapons in a foreign country, or explosives, everything just happens without explanation. The best example is being able to find and buy two marble stone lions, like Switzerland has Home Depots just for custom marble lions. If you like absurd plots that are completely unrealistic, then you may enjoy this book.

Quite a disappointment compared to the first Achille book in this series . Completely unbelievable subplots . Characters take forever to develop .long winded and boring . Various sections poorly written .overall boring
Please Rate Book 2), The Lies of Spies: (Kyle Achilles
