Title:The Good Spy Dies Twice (Book 1: The Bullseye Series)
Author: Mark Hosack
Stars: 3.5 out of 5
I thoroughly enjoyed the beginning and looked forward to reading the entire book. Some parts were a little off-putting and seemed to drift away from the main plot but still followed along the same general path. I was not enthralled with the ending as it appeared, to me, to be a vague. But if I consider it from a conspiracy angle it does appear to have a motive and tie into the overall premise of the book.
I have rated this book 3.5 stars and would recommend it if you enjoy conspiracy theories.
I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.
Jake Boxer, investigative journalist and host of the conspiratorial news show Bullseye, is in serious trouble. Not only is his soundman murdered by Russian intelligence agents while reporting on a secretive New World Order, but his network cancels his show, leaving Jake humiliated and spiraling into a deep dark depression.
Years later, a condemned murderer, who claims he was abandoned by the CIA, and who starred in an early episode of Bullseye, is finally executed for killing two supposed Soviet spies back in the 1970’s.
Jake Boxer, still trying to piece his life back together, is on his honeymoon in a posh ski resort in the Alaskan mountains when he gets word of the inmate’s execution . . . and the old killer’s final words: “The good spy dies twice.”
Those five words, seemingly meant for Jake, draw the ex-reporter from his forced retirement and into a complex and deadly global conspiracy involving his newlywed wife, the secretive New World Order, and the hotel’s hundred or so “guests.”
Everyone is a suspect.
Described as James Bond in a Stephen King novel, THE GOOD SPY DIES TWICE is the explosive first book in the Bullseye Series. Part spy thriller, part whodunit, this fast-paced novel introduces an exciting new hero, the intrepid, conspiratorial journalist, Jake Boxer.
