Nick Baron and his team from a secret government branch are trying to track down a bomber, probably from a terrorist organization. At the same time, a chess game shows up on his phone from a mysterious opponent whose chess moves perfectly match the bomber's moves in real life. I didn't realize when I started th [...]

A modern day thriller with a great action hero and an interesting nemesis. A live action chess match between hero and terrorist. This book lives up to it's cover comments from Ted Bell, Grant Blackwood, and Raymond Benson. LtCol Hannibal thank you for the gift and a great read.

Nick Baron, unfortunately had come to those crossroads. One would say that he had made the right choice, while someone else would say he made the wrong choice. When an international incident occurs, it is up to the secret, government funded Triple Seven Chase Team to find the people responsible for it, and stop them from spreading fe [...]

    8. I attended a writers conference with James this year and picked up one of his books. This was the one, and it didn't disappoint. I loved it! He had my attention because stories about assassins are kind of a guilty pleasure for me (I write them, too), but it is obvious that there is a lot of first hand knowledge of details in the book as well. If you want a real page turner, and if you happen to know anything about the origin of the word 'assassin', this is the book for you!Read it NOW!-------Aut [...]

    11. Buckle Up! This rapid action, complex thriller will keep you enthralled from start to finish. The multi-dimensional plot is based on a number of all too plausible scenarios. Hero Nick Baron is drawn into a progressively severe series of conflicts by an eerie, haunting and possible prophetic adversary self-named "the Emissary". I thoroughly enjoyed this action-packed and frighteningly timely thrill ride that takes us from Washington, to the Middle East, and ultimately to the center of the world, [...]

    12. Another great tale from James Hannibal-his best yet. This story is all about dominoes. Hannibal explores how far the trail of falling dominoes will lead when the first is triggered by a CIA drone strike-gone-wrong. His covert ops team lead, Nick Baron returns with the Triple Seven Chase squadron. This time Baron and his team are drawn into a chess match (both real and figurative) with a genius bent on a very unique brand of revenge. The stakes are high, the action is intense, and the real-world [...]
