Strait of Hormuz #Book #Review. Excellent Finale by Davis Bunn!!
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 THOUGHTS-I have personally loved Davis Bunn's books for the longest time. He writes with a good flair and it really pulls you into the story. And let me tell you, Strait of Hormuz was no different. This is the third and final book in the Marc Royce Adventures and boy was it a good one! You get to meet up with a bunch of old friends and see how things turn out. I even had a couple surprises in here;)
One of my favorite aspects with a book by Davis Bunn is how he mixes Christianity in a novel without making it offensive. The main character is a christian, but he isn't pushy about it. They have real life struggles(okay, Marc is a little above the ordinary but that makes him pretty good in my book), personal battles and you see how they work through them. I also felt like I learned history and geography as Davis Bunn throws in so much detail you are immersed in the story. Only problem with the book? It makes it very hard for ordinary men to measure up to Marc!! He is such a great hero. Strong and yet humble. Okay, he ends up that way, but you know what I mean. Wonderful guy all around:) Great book with a definite 5 stars. Can't wait to see what is next for your readers, Mr Bunn!!
