Reviewed by Stefan Vucak for Readers' Favorite

A call from the Federal Reserve Chairman at three in the morning, and Scott Fleming, head of the FBI Tracker Unit, finds himself thrown into a conspiracy to kill the Chairman. The US is preparing to switch to a gold-based dollar, which has upset some powerful bankers around the world, but killing the Chairman would not stop the changeover. Was the threat against the Chairman a distraction? Scott assigns a very special agent to probe into the pending gold-based currency launch and uncover who would want to eliminate the Chairman, and why. An Interpol plant in the Federal Reserve provides Scott with damning evidence against a prominent Senator and senior department personnel who are plotting to profit from the gold-based currency launch and cripple the international financial system. A computer program activates the gold-based currency system, and Scott’s team must find a way to avert a global financial disaster.

From the first page, Operation Navajo thrusts readers into a tangled world of high-powered politics and global finance, and the workings of a special FBI team determined to overcome all obstacles in solving the case. Anita Dickason spins an intricate tale with exquisite writing that compels the reader to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next. The plan to disrupt the global financial system is absurdly simple, but the plotters did not count on having to tangle with Scott’s team. Anita Dickason gradually lifts tension, leaving the reader wondering whether the FBI can in fact stop the plotters in time. Operation Navajo is very much plot-driven, with little characterization, but the density of writing and plot intricacy carry the book superbly, leaving the reader totally satisfied. A first-rate effort by Anita Dickason.

The Tracker Office has a unique case to solve and time is running out. What is at stake is a global financial crisis. It begins with a bizarre note left in the coat pocket of Frank Littleton, the Federal Reserve Chairman. Frank panics and calls the Tracker office very early in the morning.

I love stories that create tension and stories with plots that leave readers with no clue of what can happen next and Operation Navajo: A Tracker Novel has all of that and more. The opening itself is intriguing and it makes the reader start guessing right off the bat. The tension builds up as characters like Littleton are introduced. By the time the reader fully understands what is at stake, the conflict is full-blown. The prose is fluid and I loved the intense drama.
