Lion of Babylon

Marc Royce is a former covert ops employee of State Intel, which is the smallest of the nation's intelligence forces responsible for security in every overseas non military base from embassies, consulates, ambassadorial residences to treaty houses. He was fired because he had the the unforgivable. He put his wife first to care for her after having a stroke for 9 months, the state only offered him 6 weeks. Since then, he has carried around her death like a burden he can't see to put down.

Now that Alex Baird has gone missing in the heart of Baghdad for almost 3 days, Marc is being called back in by those who fired him, to locate and bring back Alex and two other women who went missing with him. An American agent to go missing in Baghdad was very bad news, and Alex was the only friend not to abandon Marc when they let him go.

In the latest suspense thriller, Lion of Babylon by Davis Bunn, we are taken into the heat of Baghdad while things are still very hostile for Americans. In the midst of removing Saddam Hussein from power, the country is still struggling to find it's new form of government while religious groups via to maintain power and control over the country. Now it's up to Marc to not only find Alex but to show Baghdad's leaders that not all American's wish them harm.

I received this book compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my hon review and once again, loved it. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting and was completely held captive to his writing style. Feeling like I was a partner along with Marc, we attempted to unlock whatever clues were necessary to find Alex Baird alive and find out just why people wanted to keep his abduction a secret, even those within our own government. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait to read more by Davis Bunn.

Here's even more great information about the book, the author and even a sneak peek into the opening chapter by visiting his website here.
