After a rough mission in Rome involving the discovery of a devastating bioweapon, Company spy Ben Calix returns to Paris to find his perfectly ordered world has collapsed. A sniper attack. An ambush. A call for help that brings French SWAT forces down on his head. Ben is out. This is a severance--reserved for incompetents and traitors.

Searching for answers and anticipating a coming attack, Ben and a woman swept up in his misfortunes must travel across Europe to find the sniper who tried to kill him, the medic who saved his life, the schoolmaster who trained him, and an upstart hacker from his former team. More than that, Ben must come to grips with his own insignificance as the Company's plan to stop Leviathan from unleashing the bioweapon at any cost moves forward without him--and he struggles against the infection that is swiftly claiming territory within his own body.

Award-winning author James R. Hannibal rachets up the tension on every page of this suspenseful new thriller.

The Paris Betrayal is a stunning novel of spies, espionage, and action! Did I mention danger? It jumped out at me from every page!

I felt like I was in the middle of The Bourne Identity while I read. I could almost see it playing out in front of me, the details, the setting, and yes, even all the action…

The hero of this story, Ben, has dedicated his entire life to working for one organization. Now, something’s happened–but he’s been left in the dark, and has absolutely no idea what is going on!  It seems as though all his loyalty was for nothing, and the very organization he gave up everything for has turned against him. He is determined to find out why.

There are so many twists and turns in this story, just as I thought I had begun to get things figured out, they went the other way. In some ways, this book almost has too much action, it is a bit hard to keep track of what all is happening.

Ben encounters various other people, some you want him to steer clear of, others….well, maybe… it’s ok to trust, but it all feels very unsure. I did have to really concentrate to keep all the characters straight. I was constantly trying to figure out which ones are the bad guys, and which ones are the good guys.

Overall, I found this to be a fun, action packed novel full of spying and all that goes with it.
