    Read my full review opinion I am thoroughly convinced after reading this that Allan Leverone is a literary genius His ability to write quality literature within multiple genres is dynamic This book took off from page one and didn t stop When the author first asked me to review, I have to be honest and say I was a bit concerned I love Allan s writing of his horror stories, but, in general, can t stand political thrillers I had a lot of faith in the author, though Read my full review opinion I am thoroughly convinced after reading this that Allan Leverone is a literary genius His ability to write quality literature within multiple genres is dynamic This book took off from page one and didn t stop When the author first asked me to review, I have to be honest and say I was a bit concerned I love Allan s writing of his horror stories, but, in general, can t stand political thrillers I had a lot of faith in the author, thoughand he didn t steer me wrong Although this is a political thriller, I don t think it was as heavy as one by authors such as Vince Flynn For the female audience, there was even a bit of romance or sexual tension in the book which I found I enjoyed and greatly lightened the book This book flowed so well that I ended up reading this book in 3 hours In general, this is pretty much the standard with his writing though

    I gave this book 4 stars because apparently action thrillers just aren t really my thing I prefer literature withcontent and depth According to my own preferences I would give it three stars, I can take it or leave it, but that is no fault of the author s If I was an action thriller fan I would probably rate this with five stars, as it is extremely action packed and fast paced It s a fun romp with a female CIA agent through the cold war era, good for light entertainment But I prefer t I gave this book 4 stars because apparently action thrillers just aren t really my thing I prefer literature withcontent and depth According to my own preferences I would give it three stars, I can take it or leave it, but that is no fault of the author s If I was an action thriller fan I would probably rate this with five stars, as it is extremely action packed and fast paced It s a fun romp with a female CIA agent through the cold war era, good for light entertainment But I prefer the profound to the fun So I m making a compromise and settling on four stars

    Go back to the 80s when the world waited with baited breathe as the relations between the US and Russia wavered back and forth on the verge of World War III A CIA operative is given the task of delivering a message from Russia to America She has no idea that she is the most wanted person on the planet once she takes possession of it.Okay, I love this genre of books Have since I read my first Tom Clancy novel This one kept me on the edge of my seat and wantingParallax View is well done Go back to the 80s when the world waited with baited breathe as the relations between the US and Russia wavered back and forth on the verge of World War III A CIA operative is given the task of delivering a message from Russia to America She has no idea that she is the most wanted person on the planet once she takes possession of it.Okay, I love this genre of books Have since I read my first Tom Clancy novel This one kept me on the edge of my seat and wantingParallax View is well done The pace is rather fast without being too much The action slows down just a bit to allow the reader to look into the minds of the characters or to get some background information The storyline itself was well done with many twists It wasn t too confusing or had too many sub plots It was just enough to keep the story moving and full of depth.I loved the characters They made you want to get in there with them and help them find safety I can t giveaway anything, but Shane is my hero Hewell, you have to read it to know why Some secrets just can t be told.What I liked about this book was the fact that it was set back in the 80s I grew up in that period so much of what they reference brought back memories of the fear of our Russian enemy Great read all the way around Will be looking forfrom this author.Do you love espionage books Then you need to read this The chapters are short and action packed.Note This book was received as part of a book tour with no expectation of a positive review

    This is closer to 5 than 4 but I can t say it was amazing which is what Goodreads has as its standard for a 5 star I thoroughly enjoyed this thriller It kept me intensely engaged throughout, and I felt eager forThe only minor flaw to me was the fact that the heroine could not turn to the FBI or Homeland Security, or Congressional leaders to assist with her top secret mission I suppose to do so would hurt the plot so I ll give it a pass

    The Cold War RevisitedThis book is like a invigorating jolt of caffeine I remember the stressful tensions of The Cold War This was not the era of the computer age Gathering information and delivering it was done by people Sensitive material was difficult to obtain much less bring it back to the correct people The novel was action pact Nonstop Loved the characters and their chemistry People reading this will think she is a strong woman I think she was a strong and patriotic American.

    This was an interesting spy novel, that turned into a CIA thriller Tracie Tanner, is a rather sexy, smart, intriguing, and deadly, heroine Her partner and love interest for most of this book seems as much of a plot device as a character Still it takes place in the late 1980s and it s fun remembering things in that timeline I hear there arein this series and I plan on giving the next Tracie Tanner book a whirl Because maybe this book was not great, this it was definitely worth reading This was an interesting spy novel, that turned into a CIA thriller Tracie Tanner, is a rather sexy, smart, intriguing, and deadly, heroine Her partner and love interest for most of this book seems as much of a plot device as a character Still it takes place in the late 1980s and it s fun remembering things in that timeline I hear there arein this series and I plan on giving the next Tracie Tanner book a whirl Because maybe this book was not great, this it was definitely worth reading I m interesting in seeing if where Allan Leverone takes Tracie Tanner

    Cleverly Woven PlotParallax View is a clever mix of historical fact and fiction The events seem plausible This is a conspiracy theory based on actual events that, to me, fit history, as we know it At least as well as say, the grassy knoll That aside, Parallax View is a fast paced, suspenseful, thriller Well worth reading for anyone who is a fan of Cold War novels Tracie Tanner is not a Jason Bourne, but then who is
