Miles and I were in the middle of reading W.E.B. Griffin's Presidential Agent series. He was a book ahead of me. While I was waiting on him to finish, I needed something else to read. I stumbled on 'Act of Treason' by accident. I found it one of our many book bins among the thousands of books that we have here. Being that I'm a big fan of Daniel Silva's Israeli spy novels, I read the synopsis and thought this might be a book that I'd enjoy reading. Was I ever right!
I was hooked from the first chapter. By the second chapter I had ordered the first three in the series from Amazon. After reading 'Treason', I put Griffin on hold and started from the beginning with 'Term Limits'. When I finished that one, I gave it to Miles and told him that he had to read that book.
Needless to say, he was hooked too. We've blown through the entire ten book series in about 5 months.
We're looking very forward to reading 'Honor'. The battle will be who gets to read it first.
