Spy (action) Novels

    I am always looking for a good, shall we say, spy novel to read.
    I truly enjoyed the Vince Flynn novel The Third Option.
    I have read several Robert Ludlum novels. They are always good, but I do not like the fact that he creates firearms that aren't actually real.
    I just finished The Messenger by Daniel Silva. It was a good read.
    I read David Baldacci's Total Control. It was OK, but he really bothered me when his main character's S&W 9mm went full auto on her. I don't think I'll read any more of his.
    I am currently reading Wild Fire by Nelson Demille. I have to say it is a good book. It does have some pretty bad language in it. I know that probably makes it more realistic, but I prefer a lack of profanity.


    Anyway, share what you have read and enjoyed. As well as what you did not enjoy.

    Well I finished Wild Fire. As a whole it was a very good book. It had very realistic descriptions of specific firearms and how they would act in certain circumstances.
    I guess the fact that Demille was an infantry platoon leader in Vietnam helped. It it had had less profanity it would be one of the top books I've read.

    Dr. David,thanks for inviting me to your group.

    Yea, W.E.B Griffen's Presidential series is great!! I read all but the newest one that just came out.
    The Carrillo Agent is cool in that series.

    Yes I quite enjoyed the Hostage, which is the only one I have read so far. I have purchased all the others in that series except the new one.
    I just finished the Orpheus Deception by David Stone. It was only his second book. It was based on a couple of CIA agents. David Stone is a pen name. He will not tell his true indentity. He has a military background as well as working for federal intelligence agencies. It was a very good book.

    I have found both of David Stone's books in the bargain section at books a million. I think they were around $7 for hard back editions.

    I just realized that I do Not like Robert Ludlum books. I read half of "Bourne supremacy",and I thought it sucked,and the movie was completely different. The movie was better. usually the book is better,but not this time.
