Review From User :
The latest Thaddeus Murfee series was awesome and very timely. The storyline involves Russia , a Putin like President of Russia, details about the GRU ( Russian Intelligence) and torture. The plot involved Thaddeus s paralegal ( Christine) who was a former soldier who fought in the Gulf War. The CIA wanted her to go back to the Middle-East and kill a leader of a ISIS terrorist group. They also told her they would do everything possible to rescue her, but if they could not save her they would give her family 10 million dollars. She agreed and they had her ask her boss (Thaddeus ) to fly with her to Turkey to make it seem like she was on a legal matter, the plane was hijacked by a group from the Ukraine to Russia where they wanted the Russian Government to release 3 soldiers from prison. Christine gets captured by the GRU and tortured and made to take part in a video showing her trying to kill the Putin like leader, the details about the waterboarding and how they tortured her were very graphic. The ending was awesome and it was a great story.
