Jerry Jenkins, #1 New York Times best-selling co-author of The Left Behind series has re-released his first stand alone novel, The Last Operative.
Jordan Kirkwood is an intelligence operative with the NSA. The story opens with Kirkwood getting information that could threaten to bring The United States to her knees. MIG fighter jets are somewhere on American soil with nefarious plans.
When Kirkwood's wife is murdered in front of him, he becomes a man on a mission to discover who wants him dead and who is supplying the terrorists bent on America's destruction.
To make matters worse, Kirkwood cannot trust anyone; even those within the NSA are suspects.
This is typical Jenkins writing. The characters are easy to connect with and the writing is really easy on the eyes. The plot is a little watered down when compared to stories by Steven James: the twists just aren't as punchy.
But I would recommend this book if you needed a quick beach-read for the end of the summer.
