    4 Heart Pounding Stars Charles Jenkins is an Ex CIA agent He left the CIA 40 years ago His old boss approaches him and asks for help with a dangerous new mission in Russia He needs money because his security business is going bankrupt so he decided to do it He leaves his pregnant wife, Alex, and his nine year old son, C.J behind He travels undercover to Moscow to locate the eighth sister There are a lot of intense cat and mouse chases Then Jenkins gets arrested and then we have a courtroom drama.This is the third book that I have read by Robert Dugoni and he never disappoints I read two books of his Tracy Crosswhite series and loved both of them Can t wait to read the rest of that series This one is the first book of a new series, the Charles Jenkins series I am not a big fan of spy thrillers but this one is so different and unique I loved it It had everything that I love in a thriller It has many twists and turns I was so intrigued It was like a rollercoaster My heart was pounding and there were a lot of jaw dropping moments I was up late at night reading this one because it was so intense at times that I had to read to find out what was going to happen next I also loved the courtroom drama The character dynamics were fantastic and very well done I really loved Charles Jenkins character Dugoni makes his characters come to life He is an excellent writer I love his writing style I want to thank Netgalley, Thomas Mercer and Robert Dugoni, for the copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Another marvellous tale from Robert Dugoni, who is fast becoming one of my go to authors This book is set in two parts, the first a spy tale, in the mould of the classic cold war espionage novels As I cut my teeth on these types of books back in the day, it was fantastic to see a modern take, and Dugoni has done a great job here.We have Charlie, former spy for the CIA, now 64 years old, and running a security company with his pregnant wife Cash flow isn t good and business is failing Then a blast from Charlie s past turns up with a chance to activate on a mission for the CIA, and to solve his money problems at the same time Charlie has little choice but to take the lifeline, and this plunges him into the turmoil of modern Russia, where memories are long When the mission goes awry he has to find his way out of Russia, with the FSB, the modern KGB close on his tail.Part two of this story takes a totally different tack, it turns legal thriller, and is classic Robert Dugoni I m not going to say too much , as I don t want to give the plot away This is a fast paced book that you really don t want to put down I was reading it waaaaaay past my bed time It is a compelling and gripping read, and I recommend it to all thriller lovers.My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC un exchange for an honest review.

    Charles Jenkins, a man in his early sixties, needs money His wife is pregnant with their second child and his security business is facing bankruptcy due to one of his vendors not paying bills on time Although he finds relief reading Harry Potter to his son at night, thoughts about finances and the future trouble him When Carl Emerson, his former CIA station chief contacts him, Charlie is intrigued Charlie walked away from the CIA forty years ago, but when Emerson presents him with a mission and a way to make some money, Charlie cannot refuse Charlie speaks Russian, had experience working with the KGB years ago when he worked undercover in Mexico, making him the perfect person to gather information for this covert mission.Charlie is soon in Russia engaged in a game of cat and mouse trying to find the identity of the eighth sister, the one who is killing members of US spy cell known as the seven sisters Russian women who are being killed for being spies Soon, things become intense and Charlie must put all his past CIA experience to the test in order to come out this alive.There is a lot going on in this book especially in the first section The cat and mouse game in Russia is exciting, intriguing and kept my attention Never really knowing what was going to happen next, had me on the edge of my seat Plus, Charlies found a worthy opponent in Russian Agent Federov Dugoni shared about his previous trip to Russia with his family, being followed, a child thinking he was military and even rumors of listening devices and walking naked in front of mirrors He also shared a discussion he had with Kristin Hannah about her inspiration for the Nightingale and his encounters with individuals who shared parts of their lives with him, as his inspiration for this book.It s fair to say, I think Dugoni nailed it Not only did he create interesting and well developed characters, he used the environment of Russia as a character as well I could feel the cold seeping from the pages I am also not a big spy espionage fan, but he made me one with this book He also showcased his research and ability to write in various genres I found this book to be captivating and although the last half slows down with the court room scenes, they are still interesting and thought provoking Thank you to Thomas Mercer and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review The thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I m not a big fan of spy thrillers, but I ll read anything that Robert Dugoni writes This stand alone novel has Charles Jenkins, a mid 60s retired CIA agent forced to come out of retirement to raise enough money to save his security business He is sent to Moscow to discover who is killing the members of a US spy ring.Dugoni once again reeled me in immediately He does a superb job of painting the Russian atmosphere the FSB and Putin s power, the Russian character, even the weather He s also done his research when it comes to how the spy industry works and effortlessly instructs the reader as well The book moves at a fast pace, like an action movie There are a lot of close calls Nothing is as it should be and Jenkins is constantly running to stay one step ahead The second part of the book becomes legal procedural than spy thriller, but it s equally engaging This might not hold together completely, but it s so much fun I didn t mind It s best that one not think too hard about some of the plot points I enjoyed the characters, not just Jenkins, but Federov and Paulina Once again, Dugoni has proven he can handle any genre he decides to take on.My thanks to netgalley and Thomas Mercer for an advance copy of this book.

    50% Spy Thriller 50% Legal Thriller 100% Thrilling Wow Robert Dugoni you have a new fan, right here This was a wild action packed story bursting with intrigue and adventure I don t read many spy thrillers, but this one was done extremely well I was seriously on the edge of my seat this entire book and when the spy thriller turned into a legal thriller this book was just as compelling and nerve racking Reading this book was like watching an intense action adventure movie, but better Charles Jenkins is exCIA now running a security company in Seattle Now a family Man with a loving wife, a nine year old son, and a baby on the way When Charles is approached by the CIA to go back into Russia he cannot resist the paycheck, it will get his business out of the red But the assignment and the people involved aren t quite what they seem Soon Charles discovers himself in the middle of a precarious situation, in terrible danger Now he finds himself on a chase across Europe, fighting to save his life, and the lives of those he loves What transpires is a riveting tale that will keep you glued to the pages This book definitely got my heart pounding I had no idea how Charles was going to get himself out of this situation Charles was very likable, reminiscent of the spies of old In fact this entire book had a bit of a nostalgic feel to it, a homage to Russian spy books of the past All the secondary characters are as interesting as Charles, even the relentless Russian A riveting story that will quench your thirst for action, adventure, and spies Definitely recommend many thanks to Thomas Mercer for my copy of this book

    The first half of this novel is a real roller coaster with cold war style undercover espionage in Moscow and a heart stopping manhunt across Europe The second half segues into a legal drama, which is no less riveting The main character Charlie Jenkins, a former CIA agent for a short time in the 1970s has bought himself some real trouble when financial troubles and a family to support leads him to accept an undercover job for the CIA in Moscow where he has business dealings Although it sounds simple enough, nothing goes to plan and Charlie is soon fighting for his life and his freedom The characters were excellent, especially the dogged Russian agent who never gave up, the female spy who helped Charlie and lawyer Sloane and his son Jake While I enjoyed both the suspense and intense action followed by the clearly laid out legal drama, I felt there were a few loose ends that weren t resolved and prevented me awarding a full 5 stars view spoiler Such as why did Emerson set Charlie up in the first place was it just to have those two agents killed and if so why Charlie Were the three women killed part of the seven sisters or was that just a myth to get Charlie involved Was there an eighth sister or was that also a fabrication I don t think Paulina was Putin s counteragent because she was anti Russia or was she a double agent I d welcome any clarification on these points if you ve read it you can PM me your theories or add in a spoiler alert below Thanks hide spoiler

    This is a stand alone that ties in to the author s David Sloane series Charlie Jenkins is the MC, a former CIA agent whose past comes back to haunt him Forty years ago, Charlie walked away from his career after a case left him disillusioned disgusted with the job Now he lives on a farm in Washington state with his wife son runs a private security firm Money is tight, especially with another baby on the way.So when his old CIA handler shows up with a paying proposition, it gets Charlie s attention The job go to Moscow for the security firm, make contact with the FSB new KGB convince them he s a disgruntled former CIA agent with info for sale His real task is to identify a Russian agent who is killing long time American assets Sure What could possibly go wrong Oh man, where to start Suffice to say things don t go as planned on his second trip to Moscow, Charlie finds himself running for his life But what he doesn t realize is getting home in one piece is only half the battle The first 60% is a rip roaring tale of espionage with all the proper ingredients Clandestine meetings, deadly Russians, Gorky Park lots of vodka There s even a femme fatale Charlie has to draw on old skills as he tries to evade a determined FSB agent make it back to the States.It s a tense, wild ride we all breathe a collective sigh of relief when he makes it home But maybe don t pop the champagne just yet Seriously, this guy cannot buy a break I don t want to give away too much about the second act but at this point, action switches to the court room after Charlie is arrested He calls on old friend lawyer David Sloane to defend him in what is literally a hopeless case that could put him away for life.Dugoni excels at creating clever suspense populated with well developed characters In Charlie, we get a sympathetic MC, a man with integrity who just wants to provide for his family The surrounding cast is an interesting mix it can be a challenge to tell the good guys from the bad One of the standouts was Viktor, a burly FSB agent who I became quite fond of All in all, it s an entertaining read full of twists that will keep you turning the pages.

    First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Robert Dugoni, and Thomas Mercer for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review.While Robert Dugoni is the author of two successful series, his standalone novels grip the reader just as effectively There is something refreshing about an author who has so many ideas and whose name is indicative of stellar writing and plausible storylines Charles Jenkins has been out of the spy game for many years After serving as a CIA field agent in Mexico City, he left abruptly and eventually began work on his own security company Four decades on, Jenkins has found solace in his wife, Alex, as well as a son, with a second child on the way When a former Agency colleague pays a visit, Jenkins knows that it is not a friendly check in, especially after all this time Jenkins soon learns that a number of Russian women are turning up dead in and around Moscow While this is nothing concerning on the surface, they were all feeding secret intel to the Americans, part of a group called the Seven Sisters While these women were excellent at their jobs, none knew they were anything but isolated individuals defying Mother Russia during her time as the USSR With the rise of Putin and a new authoritarian regime, whispers of the Seven Sisters re emerged, especially since Putin was once a KGB officer and keenly interested in the rumours Now, it would seem that there is an eighth sister working for Putin and the FSB one who is tasked with sniffing out these traitors Enter, Charles Jenkins, who is being sent to Russia under cover of checking up on one of his client s former offices, to seek to have the newest sister reveal herself and let the Americans take it from there However, when Jenkins mission is compromised, he becomes the hunted inside Russia, while the CIA denies any knowledge and will offer no help Back in America, Alex is given instructions by her husband to leave their home and seek out David Sloane, a friend and established Seattle attorney While Sloane and Alex know nothing of what is going on, they can only hope that Jenkins still has the antics he possessed forty years ago to extricate himself from this mess Little does he know, his fight to get away from the FSB is only the start to the headaches that await him Another stunning novel by Dugoni that reignites old Cold War drama, alongside some stunning legal developments Recommended for those who love stories of espionage, especially the reader who is a longtime fan of Robert Dugoni s writing.I always flock to a new Robert Dugoni novel, knowing that I will not be disappointed Even his standalone pieces keep me intrigued, helping to fill the void that arises when I have to wait for the next instalment of his popular Tracy Crosswhite series Dugoni enjoys filling his novels with details that are poignant than fillers, keeping the reader educated as well as entertained from the opening paragraphs until the tumultuous final sentences The development of his protagonist, Charles Jenkins was quite effective, hinting at a past within the Agency without offering up too many details Pulling on this and linking it effectively to the Cold War esque storyline helped the reader see the connection, as well as seek to know a little As the story progresses and Jenkins finds himself on the run, the reader learns a little about Jenkins and his family, a core part of why he has stayed off the grid for so long The story also tests Jenkins resolve to better understand just how far he can go as an agency plant to extract needed information with ease Working with that is a handful of characters, both in Russia s FSB and back in America, trying to help Jenkins flee the trouble in which he finds himself Dugoni effectively juggles both sets of characters, developing a strong espionage theme throughout as the race to safety or elimination mounts with each passing page Of particular note in the inclusion of David Sloane into the story Longtime fans of Robert Dugoni will know that this was the author s first series protagonist and an effective lawyer he was I cut my teeth on that series and respected Dugoni the I read of it Sloane, still a Seattle attorney, plays an effective and essential role, giving fans a jolt of excitement to see him back on the page The story was quite strong, particularly in an age when Russia is back to play a key role on the international political and spy scene Dugoni keeps the chapters flowing and the action mounting as the struggle for freedom becomes desperate Dugoni is on the mark with this piece and it goes to show just how masterful an author he has become.Kudos, Mr Dugoni, on another splendid addition to your writing list I am always eager to see what you have in store for fans and was not disappointed with this effort.Love hate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons, a different sort of Book Challenge

    The Eighth Sister is a book about espionage and the resulting court trial of the protagonist, Charles Jenkins Jenkins is a former agent for the CIA Forty 40 years after Jenkins had walked away from his CIA job he is approached by his former station chief, Carl Emerson, and asked to come back into the CIA, for a special assignment You guessed it to find the eighth sister.Jenkins is now sixty four 64 years old He is married and has a young son and a baby on the way He is or was fluent in Russian and Emerson said that he believed Jenkins was the ideal candidate for this assignment Jenkins security business is struggling to stay afloat and he really needs the money offered for this assignment, so after some thought he agreed.Overall, I enjoy this book There are two 2 parts, the espionage and the trial The first 1st part is about two thirds of the book and iis filled with action and intrigue Jenkins has to travel to Russia a couple of time and on the second 2nd trip all hell breaks loose He shows himself able to keep up with the demands of the assignment.The second 2nd part is about the trial Things don t go as Jenkins had expected and he ends up charged with espionage His friend, David Sloane, is his attorney This is a complex trial because much of the information cannot be shared with the court because of national security.I think the author Robert Dugoni does a great job of describing the settings and and characters of the story I found Jenkins wife, Alex and son CJ very likable and supportive I also read My Sister s Grave by the author I have enjoyed his writing and plan to read of his books.

    Charles Jenkins is a 60 year old former CIA case officer who is now married with a young family and a baby on the way He owns a security firm that s in financial trouble because a major client falls in serious arrears When his former bureau chief approaches him about being reactivated for one assignment in Russia, Jenkins reluctantly takes it on as a means to salvage his business However, once in Moscow, nothing goes as planned and he finds himself in the fight of his life to not only stay alive but make it back home, only to discover even bigger issues This story is one great cocktail with all the right ingredients to make it an exciting brew Equal parts espionage and thriller, one part legal drama and the rest a gnarly mystery, it s just an exceptional literary ride I had no clue as to what to expect from one scene to the next and his Russian counterpart was as formidable as Jenkins There are other interesting characters that rose to the proverbial occasion when needed but you ll need to read this for yourself to learn I chose to listen to this story brilliant decision and I m now an instant fan of the narrator, Edoardo Ballerini, who I happened to see in an episode of NYPD Blue while in the middle of this book He s an experienced actor with awards for his audiobook performances and I can attest that if any of those were as good as this one, they were well deserved He managed a host of accents, ages and genders and all rang authentic He will be a tipping point for me going forward if he s associated with a book I m considering I enjoyed this story made even exciting by the narrator So many of my friends have raved about this author and now I know why I m also thrilled that this is the start of a new series because I want to see of Jenkins, his cohorts and family The end of the book came much too soon for me and it had nothing to do with an unsatisfactory endingfar from it 4.5 stars Posted on Blue Mood Caf Thanks to Brilliance Audio for my complimentary copy All opinions are my own.
