Rumor has it there’s a Russian you can turn to if you’re very rich, and need dirty deeds done without a trace. The CIA calls him Ivan the Ghost because he’s operated for years without leaving a trail or revealing his face.
For the first time in history, Ivan appears to have slipped. The CIA’s new director sets Agent Kyle Achilles on an intercept course, surveilling the daughter of a British politician. Then Ivan pulls off a masterful con, and Emily vanishes.
With Emily’s life, his career, and America’s reputation at stake, Achilles partners with an unlikely new agent he meets in France. Together they attempt to get one step ahead of the legendary Russian, while rubbing elbows with the ultra-rich in a high-tech international chase.
I received a copy of this novella through the author’s website at the request of the author for an honest review.
Chasing Ivan is an action packed novella that follows a CIA agent on his mission to capture a Russian criminal. The book is written in both third and first person point of view. The third POV centers on Emily and her search for love and Agent Achilles’ partner on his mission. Achilles’ parts in the book are in the first person.
At first that bothered me. I was worried that I was going to be confused and not experience a good book. Even though I still don’t care for the format, I wasn’t deterred from the story. The first person brought in fighting detail and the mental process of Achilles when the third person was the bulk of the story.
Since this is a novella, it’s hard not to give away anything. The book is filled with action and I felt like I was reading a movie. I love Tim Tigner’s writing and it was easy to be sucked into the book. If you love action packed books, Tim Tigner is an author you need to read.
