The first book in this series is Albatross, which introduces us to Alex Burns. He's basically Jason Bourne with a strong hero complex. I also read Raven (follow link to read review) the second book in the series which incorporates a love interest with Samantha, Alex's partner, but it ends in a tragic way that quickly changes his life. In Eagle, he still mourns her and works on dealing with her death.
Now it's years after the downfall of the Foreign Intelligence Agency, and the spy's are amongst the public, Alex knows someone specific will be looking for him. Eric Daniels. They were once colleagues and some might even say friends, or at least more than acquaintances. Now they want two different things, and will take out each other to have things their way. Eric wants revenge against Alex and kidnaps a family member to raise the stakes, and draw Alex out.
This is another great spy/action novel that will keep you on your toes. I was so eager to get to the end of each chapter, to find out more, only to have the chapter end in such a way, that caused me to start another one. Despite the fact that it was early into the morning. I finished this in one sitting because of the excitement and the action. This could easily be a very exciting movie, I doubt it will ever make it to the theatre because of it's similarities to Jason Bourne series.
So, if you liked the Jason Bourne series, check out Albatross, Raven, and Eagle to really see Erickson's talent in writing fast paced action. I would rate this book as a 4/5.
