Honey Trap is a work of fiction in the thriller subgenre penned by Tony Brenna. It is best suited to the mature adult audience owing to scenes of graphic violence, sexual content, and the use of explicit language throughout. In this seductive thriller filled with tension, passion, and violent crime, we find ourselves following protagonist Mike Delano, a journalist who quickly finds himself embroiled in a dangerous game of cat and mouse after he tries to rescue his beloved Rachel from the hands of her wicked media baron father. What results is a wild ride with high stakes and deadly consequences that play out on a global scale as one man fights for love and his life.

Fans of the likes of The World Is Not Enough are certain to fall head over heels for this gorgeously penned and darkly dangerous work of slick thriller fiction. Tony Brenna writes in a cinematic style that makes the action leap from every page of this daring tale, not least in the wide array of exotic locations and dangerous settings that he chooses to ramp up the plot with. There’s also plenty of intrigue for those who enjoy mystery, conspiracy, and character-based drama, and the romantic subplot between Rachel and Mike is steamy and heartfelt in all the right places. As a result, Honey Trap is a fast-paced thriller that will offer readers the total package for its clever storytelling, vibrant writing style, and characters you’ll want to read about over and over again.
