5.0 out of 5 stars Sava Back in Action, 18 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Spy for Hire (A Mark Sava Spy Novel) (Paperback)
Mark Sava, formerly working for the CIA, but currently freelancing for an independent contractor returns for his third adventure. He continues his travels around the Middle East with the action this time around centred on the former Soviet Republic of Kyrgyzstan and the island state of Bahrain. As previously the author writes about this area with some authority and the descriptions of these places invariably have a ring of authenticity about them which adds credibility to the story.

These are very much standalone tales. It is not necessary to have read the previous instalments to enjoy this one as the author is not constantly harping back to what went before. However, it does help to understand the past relationships between Sava, Daria Buckingham who is now his live in partner, ex SEAL John Decker and others.

This is quite a complex tale involving a two year old boy who various parties seem to have an interest in and whom Sava wants to do the right thing by. What that is is not at all clear to him or the reader for quite a while. A certain amount of concentration is necessary since there are a number of groups involved, each with their own agenda and whose intentions, good or bad are not entirely clear until very late in the book. A further layer is that, for the first time, we learn something of Sava's background and upbringing which has quite an impact on him during this story.

On balance this was probably not quite as strong as the two preceding stories, but nonetheless its an enjoyable, action packed read which most will enjoy.
