4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Story of International Intrigue 8 Jun 2014
By Karen Hancock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Craig Page, newly named CIA Director, has just returned from a dangerous assignment that was fully endorsed by the President, but went awry and resulted in the death of the corrupt Chinese President, Zhou. During an early meeting with his direct boss, friend, and mentor, Betty Richards, he learns that he has a meeting with the President and his top advisor shortly. Betty has a bad feeling about the meeting, and since President Treadwell defers to his best friend, Edward Bryce, who is a typical narcissistic politician, Craig is made the scapegoat and fired. Craig has dinner with his girlfriend, Elizabeth, and learns she is moving to Paris to further her career; Craig knows that Zhou’s men will be seeking revenge, and can’t risk moving to Paris with Elizabeth, so they part ways. Craig leaves to have plastic surgery so he will not be recognizable, race cars, and stay under the radar.

A year later, Betty contacts Craig to let him know that his close friend and colleague, Ted Dunn (retired from the CIA), has disappeared while on secret assignment in Argentina; Craig agrees to go find out what happened to his friend and gets involved in a twisted plot of international intrigue laced with corruption, greed, and a struggle for supremacy at the cost of dozens of lives and the well-being of both the citizens of South America and the USA.

The Argentine Triangle is well-written, and is definitely an “edge-of-your-seat” novel. Not only is the story fascinating, but the characters are well-defined and believable. While it seems unlikely that the CIA director would send retired and fired agents with secret unlimited funds to carry out a sensitive mission that could have far-reaching consequences, readers should remember that this is fiction, after all, and when politicians are involved, anything goes, especially where power is the prize. For some of the characters, things are not as they seem, and the use of loved ones is fair game; danger or death is of minor concern in the end.

The suspense throughout the novel makes for a good read, and also makes readers wonder what really goes on behind closed doors in our own political world. For readers who enjoy political intrigue, this book is definitely recommended.

Special thanks to Tracy Minsky of Media Muscle for supplying a review copy of this excellent novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars exciting book inCraig Paige sagas 1 Jun 2014
By Bruce Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book continues the adventures of Craig Page, spy. It is very exciting and keeps the reader's attention. However, as the end of the book approaches, the story becomes increasingly unrealistic. It is also reminiscent of the author's previous works. For an easy and exciting diversionary reading this book is excellent. However, there needs to be a definite suspension of disbelief by the reader.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Argentine Triangle 29 April 2014
By B. Sharp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
My thoughts:
I like a good political thriller so I was glad to receive this book in exchange for an honest review.

The story started fast and is filled with action. The characters are interesting and the story holds you. The author paints the world for the reader; rich with history and detail, including much of the darkness. In the characters we find corruption, power, greed and revenge as well as dedication, devotion and loyalty as driving forces. This was my first Allan Topol book, so I was a little lost in some of the character's backgrounds, but it did not deter from the story. If you are like me and always want to know more, I would suggest reading the books in order so that you had all of the back story.

I enjoyed reading the book and would readily read more from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars action-packed CIA thriller 19 April 2014
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Argentine Triangle
Allan Topol
Select Books, Apr 15 2014, $16.95
ISBN: 9781590791417

Former CIA assassin Craig Page lost his position as the agency's director when President Treadwell needed a sacrifice to keep a scandal out of the White House. Distrusting POTUS and his advisors especially Edward Bryce, Page ended his relationship with his girlfriend out of concern for her safety and underwent plastic surgery to alter his appearance. Instead of spying, Page drives racing cars in Europe.

However, someone Page trusts, current CIA Director Betty Richards contacts him as his nation and a close mutual friend need him. While undercover seeking proof that Dirty War General Alfredo Estrada plans a coup d'etat, CIA agent Ted Dunn vanished in Argentina. Additionally, attracted to Buenos Aires La Nación reporter Gina Galindo, Bryce arranges arms shipments to loyal supporters of Estrada.

The latest Craig Page CIA thriller is an action-packed tale; as the hero tries to expose the ugly history of Estrada during the vicious Dirty War so this brute loses support while also preventing the arms reaching him. Although the exhilarating storyline is much more straightforward than his previous missions (see The Russian Endgame, The Spanish Revenge and The China Gambit), readers will appreciate globetrotting Page's South American escapades.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Argentine Triangle 15 April 2014
By K. Branfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Argentine Triangle is another exciting political thriller by Allan Topol starring Craig Page.

Craig’s new career as CIA Director comes to an abrupt end when he becomes a political scapegoat for President Treadwell and his closest advisor, Edward Bryce. Fearing for his safety, Craig undergoes dramatic plastic surgery to conceal his identity and amid concerns for his longtime girlfriend Elizabeth, they mutually agree to (temporarily) end their relationship. Now pursuing his longtime dream of racing cars , he agrees to his old friend and current CIA Director Betty Richards request to uncover the truth behind the disappearance of an undercover agent (and friend) in Argentina.

Page’s investigation leads directly to General Alfredo Estrada and his sidekick Colonel Schiller. Estrada’s career began during Argentina’s Dirty War and he is once again poised to stage a coup and put Argentina’s leadership back in the hands of the military. Following an important discovery that could lead to a substantial financial windfall for Argentina, Estrada begins to implement his diabolical plan. Manipulating a young journalist into helping him carry out his nefarious plot, Estrada has ensured Edward Bryce’s co-operation with procuring arms for Argentina.

With the operation completely off the books, Page relies heavily on his instincts and a few contacts as he delves into Estrada and Schiller’s scheme. Unsure who to trust, Craig is forced to make risky decisions that could have devastating results. He is, at first, primarily concerned with Ted’s whereabouts but once he uncovers the truth about Estrada, he is compelled to stop him from carrying out a devious plan that could have catastrophic consequences.

While The Argentine Triangle shares a few similarities to other novels starring Craig Page, Allan Topol keeps the storylines fresh with his ingenious use of factual historical events. He does a credible job combining bits of history with intriguing suppositions of what could happen if the wrong person assumes power and the end result is a thought-provoking and action-filled adventure. The political element raises questions about power, influence and corruption in the US government that are troubling and well within the realm of possibilities.

Overall, another fast-paced and compelling novel old and new fans of the genre do not want to miss.

I received a complimentary copy for review.
