The Killing Ploy Book Review

Genre: Espionage
Title: The Killing Ploy
Author: Steve Haberman
Intricate plotting is probably more necessary in a spy novel than in any other story and The Killing Ploy has it in spades.
While there are many characters including the good, bad and ugly, CIA agent Pablo de Silva is our main man as he journeys from Langley, to San Diego, Tijuana, London, Paris, Brussels and Vienna in pursuit of an American-born jihadist who might be preparing to raise the body count in his war against America.
Unbeknownst to Pablo and while he thinks he is being given a second chance after a screw-up that cost lives, he is actually being used as bait to flush out and fiend the jihadist whose whereabouts and current appearance are unknown.
Suffice it to say Pablo does have his talents. He is fluent in four languages, is patient and very observant, and is desperate to clear his reputation as he plays the deadly cat and mouse game of espionage.
About the author
A University of Texas graduate, Steve Haberman pursued legal studies at UCLA before becoming a lawyer's assistant. Stock market investments made foreign travel possible, and he has since visited Europe extensively, including London, Berlin, Prague, Lugano, and Milan.
Some of these cities feature in his thrillers.
The start of The Killing Ploy was a bit slow but spend the time because you will soon be engrossed in this excellent spy novel where spies are following spies and you are never certain of who are the good guys and who are the bad guys until the end – and maybe not even then as you ask yourself, “Is there any difference?”
