Short Desription

When Jordan Sandor resigned from active service with the Central Intelligence Agency, it was before 9-11, before the fall of Saddam Hussein, before the world had so dramatically changed. He is reluctantly drawn back into action, when a series of violent events leads him to search out a new al-Qaeda conspiracy to initiate a new wave of cataclysmic assaults with poison gas.

Sandor follows the deadly trail from New York to Florida to Paris and, ultimately, to the small town of Portofino on the Italian Riviera. Never sure who he can trust and who may be an enemy, Jordan relies on his experience, instincts and skills as he risks his life to uncover plans for attacks against the United States and its allies. The terrorist strategy is cunning and far-reaching, with the lives of millions of people at stake. When Sandor discovers a rogue agent behind the plot, he realizes he is the one man who can prevent the catastrophe.

TARGETS OF DECEPTION is a fast-paced thriller that moves from one suspenseful action scene to the next in a contemporary story of the real and present perils of the modern world.

This book grabs you and holds you tight until the conclusion. Jordan Sandor was one of the best agents of the American Central Intelligence Agency when he quit in disgust. Despite the horror of the attacks on the twin towers on 9-11 and the subsequent push to tighten security and increase inter-agency cooperation, the bureaucratic mentality still reigns. Sandor had been on a mission to a small Islamic country and his team was abandoned by his superiors, which led to the deaths of his teammates. The story opens with Sandor now acting as a journalist and he is with his friend Dan on their way to meet with a man that claims to have information about a terrorist group. As they are on the road they encounter two men that have shot a police officer. These men prefer to leave no witnesses so they begin shooting at Sandors car. They hit Dan, but Sandor is able to drive the car past them and then double back after they leave. The two men had tortured and killed the man that Sandor and Dan were going to meet. Since it is immediately clear that the men are most likely members of a terrorist group, this injects Sandor back into the environment he had resigned from. However, his frustration is our delight as his adventures make for a tale that keeps you moving the pages to the exclusion of all except the most critical of body functions. Set in the modern world of international terrorism, Stephens has created a strong and ruthless villain, an equally strong and resourceful main character: essential ingredients for a tale of this type. Watch out Jason Bourne, Jordan Sandor is here!!
