Mission to Fail by Michael Eldar

Synopsis: In the suspenseful new book by Michael Eldar, Mission to Fail, an unlikely hero emerges when Steve Pinter answers a call to immediately visit a college friend, who just happens to work at the White House.

In Washington, Steve is asked to join a team created to investigate a presidential scandal. He accepts and regards it as a nice distraction, but never imagined the dangers lurking in the background. Following a money trail, Steve notices suspicious coincidences and soon finds evidence of fraud committed at a New York bank.

When a key suspect at the bank is murdered, a tip from a surprising source leads Steve and Claire, another team member, to Switzerland where they meet with someone who can shed light on the affair. The meeting, however, is cut short when assassins kill the informer and attempt to kill Steve and Claire. Following his hunches, Steve soon encounters more danger and resistance, even from people who supported him. Will he be able to complete his quest, or will he die trying?

My review: Mission to Fail

4 stars

Mission to Fail is a complicated plot with lots of twists and turns in it. The first half of the book is a slower pace of the investigation, of the President of the United States scandal or a conspiracy of him. Then the last part of the book is fast paced you don't know what will happen next action, drama. You don't want to put the book down once it starts moving fast.

The setting of the book is Washington D.C but it also goes to different countries and deals with foreign governments and spies to Russian mob.

Steve Pinter is asked to join a special task force to look into the scandal. He has no real ties to anyone there. Claire is with the Secret Service. Albert Nero is FBI.

Steve Pinter is not having a lot of success in his life right now. He is divorced. He takes his time and does a good job not rushed.

Every time they seem to be getting somewhere they run into roadblocks. They have to deal with politicians and find evidence that supports one side of the story. They run into assassins, kidnappers who will do anything to have their way. It has car chases, gun fights, and makes for a good story.

I really like Steve, Claire and Albert. They learn to trust each others instincts especially Steve's. They save each other and risk a lot to find the truth. They are also very human. They have to find the insider who is leaking their case.

I like how the story ended.

I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and agreed to give honest review of it in return.
