With U.S. intelligence agencies wracked by internal power struggles and paralyzed by bureaucracy, the president was forced to establish his own clandestine group--Covert-One. It is activated only as a last resort, when the threat is on a global scale and time is running out.
THE JANUS REPRISAL
It begins with a terrorist attack. Covert-One operative Colonel Jon Smith is attending a conference in The Hague on infectious diseases, together with leading scientists and political figures from around the world. Without warning, the conference hotel is consumed in a bloodbath. Smith is caught in the crossfire and barely escapes . . . but not before discovering a picture of himself and two other targets in the pocket of one of the shooters.
But the hotel is not the only location under attack in The Hague. Bombs are going off at the train station, the airport, and the International Criminal Court, where Pakistani warlord Oman Dattar is being held while he's tried for crimes against humanity. In the resulting chaos, the prisoner escapes.
Dattar nurses a special hatred for the United States and its allies. With his freedom, and access to a mysterious new weapon, Dattar puts in motion a murderous, ambitious plot to exact his revenge and bring down the West once and for all--unless Covert-One can stop him.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elnora Anquillano | 2/19/2014

    " good read to take you away from the mundane; not too taxing on the mind either. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 2/2/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. It continued in the tradition of previous Covert One books - fast paced, action packed, and very suspenseful. New author (new to this series anyway) Jamie Freveletti did a great job of setting the stage, keeping the story moving, and advancing the character development of Jon Smith & Rebecca Russell - the two main characters in the series. I'm not going to rehash the plot, plenty of other reviews do that, I'll just say that if you're a fan of the previous books in the series, you won't be disappointed in this one. I read the entire book in one day - I didn't want to put it down. "

    " A great addition to the Covert-One series. Not the best written one, but a good overall read. This series seems to get farther away from Ludlum's style of writing with each passing episode, however they are still quite enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 1/7/2014

    " It is a clear winner, however the style of the writer is not as tantilizing as the original books by Robert Ludlum. The style is exciting and creates a quick page turner for anyone stuck on a bus or airplane for several hours. It will may everyone a solid read. "
