Review: Able Danger by Kensington Roth

Able Danger introduces agent Harrison Court-006, a black-ops spy with a license to kill in a world where fear and deception have the power to take over governments and create war propaganda. Agent Court stumbles upon China's secret attack planned for the U.S., taking him on a new mission across Asian and Europe and against time to stop a rogue ex-CIA agent, DaSage. Court discovers that the Communist Party has obtained a deadly super weapon from a known terrorist leader hiding in the caves of Tora Bora. One pivotal piece of information must be obtained from DaSage, but DaSage realizes Court is getting too close and must be eliminated. Court must find out what American cities the silent gravity weapon will destroy before it's too late by defeating the phantom of reverse gravity before history is altered forever.

Received from the publicist for review.

I was initially hesitant as the book had a very strange double spacing to the text which looked downright strange and reinforced the almost play or movie script feel. It just didn't have that novel "feel" to it, but once I got used to it, it flowed along nicely.

This one gets three stars. It was well written, if oddly formatted, with a nice blend of action. It was an interesting story with an intriguing twist on current international relations. Think of it as a cousin to the Jason Bourne novels.

★★★☆☆ = Liked It
