Strait of Hormuz
by: Davis Bunn ……..from Bethany House
About This Book
“They’re out there. The danger is real… and inbound.”
An under-the-radar phone call from the U.S. State Department puts Marc Royce once again on assignment–ferreting out rumors of a clandestine operation stretching from Asia to the Mideast. At stake is Iran’s threat to blockade the narrow Strait of Hormuz, cutting off vital shipping routes and escalating global tensions beyond the breaking point.
Under the guise of investigating money laundering via high-end art purchases in Europe, Royce finds himself in Switzerland with only sketchy information, no backup, and without a single weapon other than his wits.
His appointment with a gallery owner in Geneva is a dead end–the man is on the floor with a bullet through his chest. But it turns out Royce does have backup. The Mossad has sent someone to keep an eye on this undercover op, which is of more than casual interest to the Israelis. And it’s someone Royce knows…
A small team gathers around Royce–
a single objective against multiple enemies.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Another Marc Royce from author Davis Bunn. This assignment takes Royce from Asia to the Mideast, and on to Switzerland with nothing at all and no one to help. What is he doing there? Well, this time Royce is going undercover to investigate money laundering in the top of the arts, art. Davis Bunn starts this book off with a bang! This is a page-turner for sure.
I love anything Davis Bunn writes! As with all of his books, there is so much going on in Strait of Hormuz, so many twists and turns that your head is spinning with excitement when you read the last page. And I like that Bunn always weaves faith and the Bible through the lives of his characters. If you are looking for a fast-pace, nailbitting thriller/suspense with a touch of romance and a lot of excitement and entertainment, Strait of Hormuz is for you. And guys, this is a great book for you too! And even though all three books in this series is a great standalone read, you will enjoy all of the better if you read the three in order. So check out The Lion of Babylon, Rare Earth too!
