The China Gambit by Allan Topol Review & Giveaway

National bestselling author of international intrigue novels, Allan Topol, has just introduced introduced his newest hero, Craig Page, in his first book of his thrilling new international intrigue trilogy, The China Gambit: A Craig Page Thriller (Vantage Point, January 2012).
Here is the synopsis of The China Gambit: A Craig Page Thriller from the back of the book:

The Fate of the World Lies in One Man's Hands 

Craig Page--a daring and resourceful former CIA agent, now fighting terrorism in Europe--is determined to find out who killed his daughter, Francesca, a reporter who was on the trail of the biggest story of her young career. Joined by the gutsy Elizabeth Crowder, Francesca's editor, Page peels back the conspiracy layer by layer, ultimately learning that a rogue Chinese General named Zhou has a partner in the scheming CIA director, Kirby, who once forced Craig out of the Agency. 

Moving from the secretive halls of the CIA to the cold wilds of Canada and beyond, to the bloody streets of Tehran and the exoticism of Beijing, The China Gambit is a fast-paced, relentless, and frighteningly real portrait of our modern world. 

The China Gambit
It's Just The Opening Move.

I flew through The China Gambit, I could barely put it down. I love a good mystery/thriller and this was excellent in all arenas. It read incredibly fast and left me wanting more (which I will get in the second of the trilogy, The Spanish Revenge). The characters and plot line were well developed and realistic. It felt so relevant to today's world (yep, even oil is involved--the source of so much international chaos in today's world). This is the first of Allen Topol's books that I have read but I will definitely be reading more of his work. 

If you enjoy a good mystery/suspense/thriller type book, The China Gambit: A Craig Page Thriller is the perfect book for you!
