Defender: The Alex Morgan Interpol Spy Thriller Series (Intrepid 1) by Chris Allen


About the Book

An African coup is imminent, an SIS agent has gone rogue and darker forces are at play.

A typical mission for a black-ops Interpol agent. But this is Alex Morgan’s first and already he’s out for revenge. Part Jason Bourne, part James Bond, Alex Morgan is an agent of Interpol’s black-ops division – Intrepid. Policeman, soldier and spy, Morgan and his fellow operatives are the faceless strangers who serve the greater good – the means to justify the end. When an intelligence agent is brutally murdered and the president of a small African country is put in danger, Morgan is sent in on his first solo mission for Intrepid. His cover is to evacuate a group of aid workers, with the help of the beautiful but distant Arena Halls, before the country is swept by civil war. But his true mission is much darker. A spy has gone rogue – and there’s more at stake than the guy’s career in the Secret Intelligence Service. A heart-pounding, no-holds-barred chase from the dark heart of Africa to the crystalline waters of Sydney culminates in a fight to the death to stop the vicious renegade intelligence officer and uncover the shadowy conspiracy behind him. Can Morgan stay alive long enough to rescue the girl, save himself and bring the renegade to justice?

DEFENDER: Intrepid 1 is the first in the Alex Morgan Interpol Spy Thriller series taking readers by storm.


My Review

Talk about action. This modern day spy thriller by Chris Allen takes place over several continents in both remote locations and city scapes and is a wild ride of battles, fights, rescues and escapes.

A modern James Bond style story written by a former paratrooper. The author, Chris Allen, uses his military knowledge and experience to bring a realism to his action scenes that is hard to surpass. An entertaining story that could make a great action film. I look forward to book two.
