I read Tim Tigner’s latest book, Coercion, in less than 24 hours. It is a fast-paced, cannot-put-it-down kind of book. When I was able to finish and return to my life, it was a little like saying goodbye to a friend I don’t get to see often…bittersweet.
It starts with a blackmail scene. A phone rings. When it is answered, the caller gives the recipient seconds to decide whether to betray his/her country or immediately watch a family member die. And that’s only the beginning.
Having lived in a Russian sector of Ukraine, I am familiar with life’s harshness in Eastern Europe. Coercion plunges the reader into the world of post-Soviet espionage. Through former US solider and spy, Alex Ferris, the plot to capture the Kremlin and re-introduce the Cold War is discovered. However, keeping one step ahead of the mastermind, KGB General Vasily Karpov, may not be possible.
Racing from San Francisco to Siberia, Ferris fights to uncover Karpov’s secret weapon and somehow halt the plot already set in action. Ferris encounters friends and foes along the way, and violent scenes are well described, as are death and dying scenes. Coercion may best be suited for the adult reader.
Coercion is an exhilarating read with all the intrigue and action of a blockbuster movie.
