Strait of Hormuz by Davis Bunn (Review)

  • The threat of an Iranian blockade of the narrow Strait of Hormuz is escalating global tensions. Sanctions against Tehran have begun to bite, and it seeks to retaliate by cutting off vital shipping routes for crude oil. The specter of a preemptive Israeli strike has US officials on edge as they struggle to keep the world from plunging into the abyss.

    Stymied in its efforts to uncover the sources of funding that bolster the Iranian nuclear program, the State Department calls on Marc Royce to investigate. With little to go on, he'll have to rely on an old ally. Kitra Korban has ties to people with the means to get things done, so long as no questions are asked.


    But Iran is on the brink of nuclear capability, and time is running out.


    My Review:

    I enjoyed reading this latest fast paced Marc Royce thriller. This is the third suspense book featuring Marc Royce, an ex USA agent. This book had suspense, romance, and mystery. I was hooked from page one. Kitra is his ex girlfriend who is backed by Israeli intelligence, Mossad. Marc is semi backed by the State Department. Together they have to figure out what's going on and fix it before the world starts fighting. The plot and characters were well developed and interesting. The conclusion was satisfying. Recommended.
