Confessions of Eden by Scott Shinberg will appeal to fans of sleuth and espionage stories, and thrillers that feature intrigue and action. Readers are introduced to a new covert operative for the CIA Special Activities Division; ambitious Michelle Reagan, code name Eden, who is thrust into the world of espionage. While she works hard to get results and please her boss, she has to face her conscience every step of the way because she must hurt innocent people across the globe in her work. Curiously, she has a strong attraction for the person who looks at her as a murderer. Can Michelle accept her role as a cover agent and cast morals aside, and how many more innocent people need to get hurt?
This novel is purpose-driven; it is written for those who enjoy action, but the strength of the characters is one of the irresistible elements of this well-crafted thriller. Scott Shinberg creates a compelling protagonist in Eden and infuses her with humanity and realism. It is interesting to follow the psychological conflict she experiences, for while she has a very difficult career, she is deeply human with a strong sense of justice and the concept of right and wrong. It is this element of humanity that adds strength to the realism permeating the narrative and it makes the story even more interesting. Confessions of Eden is told in a powerful voice, featuring streams of consciousness that plunge readers into the protagonist's turmoil. Fast-paced and filled with action, it is one of those books you feel compelled to read nonstop.
