Strait of Hormuz, Marc Royce Series #3

Product Description

The threat of an Iranian blockade of the narrow Strait of Hormuz is escalating global tensions. Sanctions against Tehran have begun to bite, and it seeks to retaliate by cutting off vital shipping routes for crude oil. The specter of a preemptive Israeli strike has US officials on edge as they struggle to keep the world from plunging into the abyss.

Stymied in its efforts to uncover the sources of funding that bolster the Iranian nuclear program, the State Department calls on Marc Royce to investigate. With little to go on, he'll have to rely on an old ally. Kitra Korban has ties to people with the means to get things done, so long as no questions are asked. But Iran is on the brink of nuclear capability, and time is running out.

Publisher's Description

Praise for the Marc Royce Adventures

"A precise and intricate tale of cross-cultural friendship and loyalty."--Publishers Weekly on Lion of Babylon

"Thorough characterizations, a fast pace, and attention to detail make this a sure bet."--Library Journal on Rare Earth

"They're out there. The danger is real... and inbound."
--Marc Royce

An under-the-radar phone call from the U.S. State Department puts Marc Royce once again on assignment--ferreting out rumors of a clandestine operation stretching from Asia to the Mideast. At stake is Iran's threat to blockade the narrow Strait of Hormuz, cutting off vital shipping routes and escalating global tensions beyond the breaking point.

Under the guise of investigating money laundering via high-end art purchases in Europe, Royce finds himself in Switzerland with only sketchy information, no backup, and without a single weapon other than his wits.

His appointment with a gallery owner in Geneva is a dead end--the man is on the floor with a bullet through his chest. But it turns out Royce does have backup. The Mossad has sent someone to keep an eye on this undercover op, which is of more than casual interest to the Israelis. And it's someone Royce knows...

A small team gathers around Royce--
a single objective against multiple enemies.

    Marc Royce became one of my favourite characters with his debut in "Lion of Babylon", solidified this position in the excellent follow-up "Rare Earth", and now again holds firm in his stature with his excellent performance in "Straight of Hormuz". Royce is such a finely crafted character that he truly seems alive, a real hero that both men and women will enjoy reading about as he dashes across the pages putting his life on the line. I honestly found this book impossible to put down once I'd cracked the cover. From the first few pages to the final chapter, the intense, action-filled plot pulled me into the story and held me captive. The international intrigue and conspiracies woven into the story make for some solid entertainment, and the themes appear ripped from the headlines, capturing the tension in the Middle East that marks our world today. I enjoyed the manner in which Kitra especially seems to grow as a character in this story, finding a new confidence in herself as she steps into a new (and fun) role in the plot. The interactions between Marc and Kitra add just the right touch of romance to the story, and I turned the final pages satisfied with where we, the readers, are left in their relationship (though I admit I'm hoping for a return of these characters one day in the future!). As usual for Bunn, faith permeates the pages of the story, though it is done so subtly that people of many different faiths are likely to appreciate this book while being drawn to the truth of Jesus.

    Davis Bunn has succeeded in becoming one of the few authors on my list whose books have achieved a "must have" status. If you are anything like me, then plan on getting "Straight of Hormuz". I highly recommend this book and award it 5 out of 5 stars.

    I had never read anything by this Davis Bunn before but this sort of book is right up my alley and I was immediately intrigued by the synopsis. I have to say that after finishing Strait of Hormuz I cannot wait to pick up some more of Bunn's stories. Let me also say that this is the third book in the Marc Royce series but I had no problems reading the story on its own. I always suggest reading a series in order though for the best reading experience.

    Bunn was never stingy with the action and intrigue which is just how I like my thrillers! There were more than enough twists and turns to keep me up reading long into the night. The romance between Marc and Kitra was just right, not too much to distract from the story and enough so it didn't feel ignored.

    This is a definite must read for action/thriller fans and a wonderful introduction to the author me.

    Honestly, it didn't move as quickly as I was hoping it would. It's not a bad story and it's not poorly written, it just didn't capture my attention like I was expecting. I'll definitely be reading it again when I get the chance. I haven't read anything else by Davis Bunn so it might just be that I'm not used to how he writes. I really don't know. I tried to be super into the book but I just wasn't.
