Product Description

Product Description

After one botched assassination attempt leads to the discovery of another high profile murder-for-hire in the works, Agent Sydney Bristow goes undercover to untangle a twisted plot of betrayal, terror, and revenge. Thrown into the midst of a dysfunctional yet extremely powerful family, Sydney must determine who is trustworthy and who is out for blood. Luckily, she has some experience in this field.
With time running out and political alliances hanging in the balance, the APO operatives work together to infiltrate the family and determine the target of an impending deadly attack. Unfortunately, the intended victim could be anyone -- a world leader, an adulterous wife, a group of innocent civilians, even a fellow agent -- and the clock is ticking.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fair compliment to the Alias Series 16 May 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Many books which stem from series are not very good but this one manages to catch the atmosphere quite well. Most of the characters from the series are involved in the story which is a self-contained mission outside the story arcs of the series. Sidney goes undercover as a teacher to the difficult daughter of the Mexican Ambassador to the US in order to investigate possible links between an assassin and someone in the embassy. There are plenty of suspects and a lot of action, which is all within the spirit of the series and as a result is a useful reminder of how good the Alias series was and what made it so good.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites 19 Jan 2006
By Shaadi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read almost all of the Alias prequel and APO novelizations and I would have to say that this one is definately in the top 3 for favorites. It is interesting and edgy and keeps you guessing until the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you like Alias, it's worth reading 6 Jun 2007
By Nels Wadycki - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I give this book 3 stars because it's really only worth reading if you're an Alias fan. I got it for a dollar at a thrift store, and that was a good deal.

It's a very short and easy read, and while there are some twists, it's nothing that you'll have to try to wrap your head around - especially if you've watched Alias at all. I'm sure there were some strict editing guidelines the author had to follow to maintain continuity, but he often relies on what you already know about the characters to fill in where a lot of what an original fiction book would have to explain. The characterization of Weiss is well done, but Sydney feels a little thin, and Vaughn is overdone.

I'd give the book 4 stars for people who like Alias, but I'm not one to give a book a good review for a specific audience (as Roger Ebert tends to do with his movie reviews).
