Review:

Amazon Best Books of the Month, January 2012: Soldier turned actor Ty Hunter craves nothing more than some R&R after his latest Hollywood blockbuster...until he’s tasked with thwarting a potential nuclear arms deal. Using his celebrity sway and former training, Hunter goes undercover within a wealthy, powerful inner circle in search of a rogue. A sketchy businessman with Russian dealings and a megalomaniac ‘collector’ of riches top the list of suspects, while Isabella Cavill, a jewelry maker for foreign and often questionable clients, is a charming, if not entirely trustworthy, love interest. Hunter struggles to come to terms with a violent military past in order to complete the job, and his reluctance adds to his heroic charm. Stylish and smooth, Hunter is a protagonist reminiscent of James Bond-era machismo, where sophistication reigns supreme.

Bill Clinton pens the introduction, and author Thomas Caplan writes with decisive, well-paced prose. Part spy thriller, part Hollywood dazzler, The Spy Who Jumped Off the Screen is a satisfying and fun intrigue story. --Heather Dileepan
