Robert Ludlum's The Janson Option by Robert Ludlum
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An action-packed tale involving Somali pirates, the mafia, oil, bombs, new gimmicks to baffle even Bond’s Q, and lots of fun. Paul Janson is a disenchanted US agent now out for hire but in good gung-ho style he’s got to be convinced he’s on the ‘right’ side! He’s got to work out who is doing what to whom which is slightly confusing but the action is direct and the pace is aided by the novelty of some of the weapons.

If you like Robert Ludlum you might also like to read books by Frederick Forsyth, Ian Fleming and Tom Clancy.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Paul Garrison proves to be one of the most talented writers in the Ludlum series, channelling the narrative gifts of Ludlum into a tale of derring-do that has all the vigour of the original books. Paul Janson has an interesting job: rehabilitating jaded intelligence agents and aiding them in creating new lives outside the intelligence sector. But an assignment for an oil executive – rescuing the latter’s wife from Somali pirates – proves to be his most dangerous undertaking.

Synopsis

Robert Ludlum's The Janson Option by Robert Ludlum

Paul Janson has set a new mission for himself. In partnership with champion sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid, he rehabilitates disenchanted agents, helping them to create new lives outside the violent intelligence sector. But he still takes on independent assignments - for a fee. So when an oil executive begs Janson to rescue his wife, Allegra, from Somali pirates, Janson and Kincaid take on the case. However, pirates are the least of their worries in the violent chaos of oil-rich East Africa. And when Janson and Kincaid stumble into a bewildering storm of plots and counter plots, they begin to fear the only way to escape would be to abandon the kidnapped Allegra.
