“The Demeter Code by Russell Brooks is a lightning-paced thriller shining light into the shadowy world of corporate and international espionage.”—Robert Blake Whitehill, Author/Screenwriter of The Ben Blackshaw Series
“Whew! This intriguing bio-terrorism thriller becomes horrifying, just because of the premise upon which the story is based.” –Glenda Bixler, Book Reviewer.
Crack the code and you’ll save millions of lives. But knowing it exists will get you killed.
When two American embassies in northern Africa are bombed, CIA operatives, Ridley Fox and Nita Parris, are assigned to track down the perpetrators.
However, when their top asset is killed in a failed op, the agents suspect that there may be a new threat. Their search for the truth puts them on a collision course with a powerful multinational—which will go to extreme lengths to bury its criminal activities.
However, the agents soon learn that someone with a personal vendetta against that company not only knows their secrets, but will expose them in a way that could result in the largest single-day attack against America.

Never A Dull Moment!!
This is one fast, swooping, roller-coaster ride of a read!
Fox and Parris’s latest assignment is to find out who is behind the bombing of two American embassies in North Africa. When their top asset is killed, they suspect there’s another threat. Trying to get to the heart of the matter gets them into direct conflict with a multinational company which will do whatever it takes to hide their dirty dealings. As they race from one situation to another, it soon becomes clear that there is someone else aware of what they’re up to and who will go to extreme lengths to expose them and cause a massive attack on America, bigger than ever before.
Fox and Parris are CIA operatives who always have each others backs – even when they’re not really sure what the other is up to. This is fast-paced, action-packed and not like anything else I’ve read up until now. Be very careful not to let your attention drop or you’re bound to miss something exciting! I’ve thought hard about how to review this without giving anything away and the best I can do is to liken it to a mix of Mission Impossible and Die Hard with the fear generated by 9/11. Yes, it really is THAT good. One thing leads to another from beginning to end and there is never a dull moment! This is my first foray into this series and if you are a reader who loves lots of action and speed, then this is definitely one for you. Highly recommended and definitely deserving of all five sparkling stars!
My thanks to the author for requesting my review; I downloaded my copy via Kindle Unlimited. This is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
