After a rough mission in Rome involving the discovery of a devastating bioweapon, Company spy Ben Calix returns to Paris to find his perfectly ordered world has collapsed. A sniper attack. An ambush. A call for help that brings French SWAT forces down on his head. Ben is out. This is a severance–reserved for incompetents and traitors.

Searching for answers and anticipating a coming attack, Ben and a woman swept up in his misfortunes must travel across Europe to find the sniper who tried to kill him, the medic who saved his life, the schoolmaster who trained him, and an upstart hacker from his former team. More than that, Ben must come to grips with his own insignificance as the Company’s plan to stop Leviathan from unleashing the bioweapon at any cost moves forward without him–and he struggles against the infection that is swiftly claiming territory within his own body.
Award-winning author James R. Hannibal ratchets up the tension on every page of this suspenseful new thriller.
PRAISE FOR THE PARIS BETRAYAL

“A masterful thriller is created by a masterful writer, and James R. Hannibal is at the top of my list. I devoured every page with the lights on!” DiAnn Mills, author of Airborne “James Hannibal once again displays his dazzling prose and ability to keep even the more experienced readers guessing. In The Paris Betrayal, Hannibal sets his hook deep and early, then drags you through a riveting, edge-of-your-seat story. Another gripping, high-octane book from one of the best thriller writers in the business.” –Simon Gervais, former RCMP counterterrorism officer and bestselling author of Hunt Them Down

“Riveting and action-packed! The Paris Betrayal is everything you want in a thriller–suspense, intrigue, and white-knuckle action. Hannibal has a knack for keeping you guessing in a plot that moves at a breakneck speed. This is one you don’t want to miss!”
Ronie Kendig, bestselling author of The Tox Files

My Thoughts

20210510_144455-01[1]A book that will leave you with jetlag, The Paris Betrayal by James. R. Hannibal kept me guessing! He just keeps getting better as a writer and I LOVE it! The fast-paced storyline kept me reading until I had the story finished since I could not put it down.

The characters had some great dialogue and James R. Hannibal developed a great comradery between his characters, and I loved the whole Jason Boureish feel to them (I mean who does not love a good spy story?). Plus, all the characters were captivating right from the start and had clearly defined traits. James R. Hannibal gave such good details that I could picture each character in my mind clearly, without it seeming like an actual description; that’s how seamlessly he wove it into the actual story! I loved the different spy type of hints he gives through Ben, and they had interesting real-life applications too.

Overall, though, I loved this story most for being so REAL. I could believably see most everything in this book taking place around the world today; in part maybe because of some of the interwoven themes of the effects of Covid-19. James R. Hannibal takes it to the next level though with some seriously good scenes and locations that made think I was there too. This story ranks high on best plots I’ve ever read, and I highly recommend you put this one on you To Be Read list, you will not be disappointed.

A definite 5 out of 5 stars in my book, and one I will be rereading again at some point.

*I volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feedback. The thoughts and opinions expressed within are my own.

XTRA NQ 1

James R. Hannibal is no stranger to secrets and adventure. This former stealth pilot from Houston, Texas, has been shot at, locked up with surface-to-air missiles, and chased down a winding German road by an armed terrorist. He is a two-time Silver Falchion Award winner for his children’s mysteries, a former Thriller Award nominee, and a 2020 Selah and Carol Award finalist for The Gryphon Heist–the opener for the CIA series that now includes Chasing the White Lion. James is a rare multisense synesthete, meaning all of his senses intersect. He sees and feels sounds and smells, and hears flashes of light. If he tells you the chocolate cake you offered smells blue and sticky, take it as a compliment.
