About the Book:
The threat of an Iranian blockade of the narrow Strait of Hormuz is escalating global tensions. Sanctions against Tehran have begun to bite, and it seeks to retaliate by cutting off vital shipping routes for crude oil. The specter of a preemptive Israeli strike has US officials on edge as they struggle to keep the world from plunging into the abyss.
Stymied in its efforts to uncover the sources of funding that bolster the Iranian nuclear program, the State Department calls on Marc Royce to investigate. With little to go on, he'll have to rely on an old ally. Kitra Korban has ties to people with the means to get things done, so long as no questions are asked. But Iran is on the brink of nuclear capability, and time is running out.
Davis Bunn is one of my favorite authors, so you can just imagine how excited I was to get my hands on a copy of "Straight of Hormuz". Of course, with that excitement came a great amount of expectations, and believe me - this book didn't disappoint!
This is the third book of the Marc Royce series but can easily hold its own, but do yourself a favor and start from the beginning with "Lion of Babylon" (if you haven't already). Bunn takes us on another political adventure that will keep you turning the pages and will leave you unable to put the book down and needing to know what happens next. This fast paced thriller will keep your heart racing and and wondering how, when and why. Oh my!!
Bunn has written across different genres with a fantastic Christian message in each of his stories, including the Marc Royce series. If you enjoy political thrillers, mysteries, or just a great page-turner, you'll certainly enjoy this latest book from Davis Bunn. I give him 11 stars out of 10 for this one!
