read: The Silent Sisters (4 stars)

The Silent Sisters (Charles Jenkins #3)The Silent Sisters by Robert Dugoni
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the third book in the Charles Jenkins spy series and it seems to wrap up the story of the Seven Sisters, deep-cover moles from the Cold War that need extraction from Russia. The last two women have gone silent and the CIA needs to find out why and get them out, if possible. They turn again to Charles. He's barely survived his previous two forays into the country and is now on a Russian kill list. Surely another mission is pushing his luck too far. Except this mission calls for his very specific type of vintage spy craft.

Off he goes to do his duty. All seems to be going almost too well when he gets involved in a confrontation in a bar and makes a tactical error, putting him on the run from not only Russian agents, but a relentless Moscow police detective and a Russian mafia family. It will take all of his skills and allies old and new to find and extract the final two sisters to America. Dugoni keeps the story driving at a frantic clip and keeps the twists coming. Recommended!
