About this ebook

Young CIA officer Talia Inger has reconciled with the man who assassinated her father, but that doesn't mean she wants him hovering over her every move and unearthing the painful past she's trying to put behind her. Still, she'll need him--and the help of his star grifter, Valkyrie--if she hopes to infiltrate the Jungle, the first ever crowdsourced crime syndicate, to rescue a group of kidnapped refugee children.

But as Talia and her elite team of thieves con their way into the heart of the Jungle, inching ever closer to syndicate boss the White Lion, she'll run right up against the ragged edge of her family's dark past. In this game of cat and mouse, it's win . . . or die. And in times like that, it's always good to have someone watching your back.

Former tactical deception officer and stealth pilot James Hannibal takes you deep undercover into the criminal underworld where everyone has an angle and no one escapes unscathed.

Chasing the White Lion Talia Inger #2 By James R. Hannibal Talia Inger finds herself once again working with Adam Tyler and not necessarily by choice. But he and his crew of cons and thieves somehow keep showing up where she is. But when her foster sister approaches her with a potential human trafficking situation involving kidnapped refugee children she needs Tyler and the skills his crew offers. But to save these children they will have to infiltrate a crime syndicate - one known as the Jungle. The boss known only as the White Lion potentially has links to her past and her father's death. But nothing is as it seems and time is not on their side in this game of "kill or be killed." Chasing the White Lion is a suspense-filled read that continues Talia Inger's story that the reader was introduced to in The Gryphon Heist. ow if you haven't read the first book you can still enjoy this book easily with just a bit of backstory missing. Talia is learning that she can't lean on just herself and her skills developed as a CIA officer. Trust is a major underlying factor throughout and with the various characters trust is not easily given. If you are looking to escape into a world of intrigue, adventure, and betrayal this is a perfect read for you. This book doesn't shy away from murder and crimes but it doesn't go into graphic or morbid detailing. Overall I'd say this is a good read and would recommend it to many readers. I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion - all thoughts expressed are my own.

I tried hard to get into the story and the characters. For whatever reason, it is still sitting on my coffee table and does not catch my interest when I sit down to read.

I enjoyed reading this book. It had a good story to it. I liked the variety of characters in it. I hope to read more books by this author.

About the author

James R. Hannibal is no stranger to secrets and adventure. A former stealth pilot from Houston, Texas, he has been shot at, locked up with surface-to-air missiles, and chased down a winding German road by an armed terrorist. He is a two-time Silver Falchion Award winner for his Section 13 mysteries for kids and a Thriller Award nominee for his Nick Baron covert ops series for adults. The author of The Gryphon Heist, James is a rare multisense synesthete, meaning all of his senses intersect. He sees and feels sounds and smells, and hears flashes of light. If he tells you the chocolate cake you offered smells blue and sticky, take it as a compliment.
