Ransom by Belle Ami is the third book in her Tip of the Spear series, and hopefully not the last. When Cyrus Hassani is called to meet the leader of Israel’s secret intelligence agency, he knows his respite has ended. Torn between leaving his family, who are still recovering from a recent abduction, and taking the assignment, Cyrus knows he is the only one who can lead this mission. As a Mossad agent, Cyrus’s aim is to protect all of Israel’s children and to see that his country is safe from the violent group, Hezbollah. Can his team extract their agent while finding the mole that endangers all of them? One mission that has many directives; if one fails that could be the end of Israel as they know it.
As an espionage thriller, Ransom covers all the bases; passion for the mission and each other, thrilling danger, distinct travel destinations, a blend of languages, and cultural diversity. Belle Ami is an intense author that implements multiple layers of action and suspense. Each key character rules their task as they do their duty, and they work like a well-oiled machine. I personally like the French spy, Zara Zayani, best as she juggles her journalist cover and works as a double agent. One day her cover will be blown, and she questions what else is out there for her. Overall, this novel will fascinate anyone remotely interested in espionage. The action is intense and they run the mission with precision. I would highly recommend this novel to anyone with a taste for adventure and the thrill of the chase.
