"Chasing the White Lion"

Book Description from the publisher:
Cover ArtIn Talia's world everyone has an angle and no one escapes unscathed

CIA officer Talia Inger may have reconciled with the man who assassinated her father, but that doesn't mean she wants him hovering over her every move and unearthing the painful past she's trying to put behind her. Still, she'll need him--and the help of his star grifter, Valkyrie--if she hopes to infiltrate the Jungle, the first ever crowdsourced crime syndicate, to rescue a group of kidnapped refugee children.

But as Talia and her elite team of thieves con their way into the heart of the Jungle, inching ever closer to syndicate boss the White Lion, she'll run right up against the ragged edge of her family's dark past. In this game of cat and mouse, it's win . . . or die. And in times like that, it's always good to have someone watching your back.

My Review:
First of all, I need to mention that this book is the second book in a series, so I would HIGHLY recommend you read book #1 first, "The Gryphon Heist."  Not only will you be seeing some of the same characters, but it is another really good suspense read as well!  
"Chasing the White Lion" will take you on a whirlwind of a trip from start to finish!  You will travel with the characters to many locations, from Russia to Virginia to the Greek Isles to name a few, some more remote than others.  All along the way there is danger, and suspense and the past threatening to resurface.  Talia is a trained CIA officer and yet she cannot possibly be trained for everything that will soon pop up, at least I know I would feel that way as she sets off on her mission and is having to deal with her past as well.  
Talia is a great main character, I really liked her personality and attitude throughout the book.  The author did a great job with character development as well as setting the scene as the book flowed so nicely even though it took place in so many different locations and settings.  I highly recommend this book and am eager for hopefully a third book!
