Triangle of Deception by Haggai Carmon

Triangle of Deception by Haggai CarmonBlurb

How do you penetrate the world’s most secretive and tightly knit terrorist organization? Dan Gordon’s only option is deception. Working undercover in a joint CIA/Mossad mission, he’s on the hunt for the source of funding to Hezbollah. He has infiltrated a Lebanese network in Paraguay, only to realize the operation is far more wide-ranging than he’s been told.

And when Dan finds himself locked in a grim Romanian prison cell, he wonders if there’s still more that he hasn’t been told. Was it a security leak that got him arrested? Did the CIA make him a sacrificial lamb? Or has he stumbled on a much bigger plot, one with the potential to disrupt Al Qaeda’s operations in America?

My Perspective

This is the fifth book i chose to read from my post Third Lot – And It’s A Lot

Triangle of Deception follows Dan Gordon, an agent for the Office of International Asset Recovery and Money Laundering, and his involvement in Operation Pinocchio – an operation to infiltrate terrorist organisation Hezbollah and cause dissension in its members. However the world of espionage is never as it seems.

I found it hard to get into this book. Although the beginning was setting the plot and had a lot of character back story, there was a lot of technical information as well that I found hard to wrap my head around. The rest of the book was similar however as I understood what was going on, I founder it easier to get into.

Dan is an interesting character with a lot of experience in the field. Although I couldn’t relate to him in the slightest, I still connected with him and cared about his well being. I experienced his emotions right along with him.

The book is quite slow paced and there is a lot of information to digest however it is still very intriguing. It’s a heck of a lot more realistic than most crime novels. As there is so much to take on board, you don’t really have a clue where it’s all headed and who’s behind what.

Although it took a bit for me to get into, it was altogether an enjoyable read. I would definitely recommend it those who like a lot of intrigue compared to action in their espionage thriller novels.
