The Taba Convention The Jordan Kline Series – Book One:
Two deadly adversaries, one horrific conspiracy against Middle East peace. Disillusioned with the continued killing in the agency, Jordan Kline resigns to take up hotel management studies. Now the General Manager of the Sands Eilat hotel, Jordan enjoys life with his girlfriend Irit in the Red Sea resort town. An ex colleague is taken out on the Arava road, the long desert road leading from the Dead Sea to Eilat. On his way back from Tel Aviv, Jordan witnesses the dying man’s last words. They are words that will push Jordan reluctantly back into the world he had turned his back on. Jordan unravels a deadly conspiracy that threatens to engulf the Middle East in war. He becomes the most hunted man in Israel. Forced to use all his cunning, Jordan must stay one step ahead of men that kill to fulfill their deadly ambitions. The only problem is that Jordan does not know who they are, and time is running out as the historic date of The Taba Convention approaches. The Taba Convention is filled with surprising twists and turns, and interesting insights into the world of hotels interspersed in the suspenseful action. The future of the Middle East is in doubt right up until the climax at the Taba Hilton Hotel in Taba Egypt. The Taba Convention is a political action adventure thriller that will keep you turning the pages faster and faster.
When the author asked if I would like a copy of this book for review, my first thought was to decline his offer, because I’m not a fan of political books. But I am a huge fan of thrillers, so I decided to read out of my comfort zone and give it a try. I’m so glad I did!
The book is centered around Jordan Kline, who is thrust back into the life he so desperately wanted to leave behind. He knows he can’t stop the enemy from what they are determined to do by himself, so he looks to those he thinks he can trust the most to help him.
There are many surprises and roadblocks, lots of white knuckle moments and twists, and they all will keep you glued to the pages.
I loved that the author added so much description of the area, it helped me “see” where they were.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves lots of action and suspense.
