Publisher's Description

Why won’t the dead stay dead? Federal agent Alexandra LaDuca travels to Egypt to investigate the possible sighting of a former mentor, a CIA agent who everyone thought was dead. She is thrown into the deadliest game of double cross of her career as the events that began in Kiev and continued in Madrid find their culmination in the volatile Middle East. Her assignment is to locate a man she once knew. But to find the answers, Alex needs to move quickly into the underworld of the Egyptian capital, a nether society of crooks, killers, spies, and Islamic fundamentalists. And she must work alone, surviving on her wits, her training, and a compact new Beretta. Her search immerses Alex deeply into the explosive international politics of the day, touching on Arab-American relations and the new balance of terror between Russia and the United States. And it doesn’t help that she’s forced into a partnership with a quirky double agent known only as Voltaire, one of the most shadowy and powerful members of the Cairo underworld. If you’ve been waiting for Alex LaDuca’s next adventure, this fast-paced thriller is it. If you’ve never met Alex, Countdown in Cairo offers a first-rate introduction. You will be holding your breath from its explosive beginning to the very last twist.

Author Bio

Noel Hynd has sold more than four million copies of his books throughout the world, including The Enemy Within and Flowers From Berlin.  His most recent novel, Hostage in Havana, is the first book in the Cuban Trilogy starring Alexandria LaDuca.  Hynd lives in Culver City, California.

Publisher's Weekly

Hynd (The Enemy Within) completes the Russian trilogy that features U.S. Treasury agent Alexandra LaDuca. A stark opening chapter concludes with LaDuca zipped in a body bag in a morgue outside Cairo, and the action then goes back two months to introduce the central puzzle—the sighting of Michael Cerny, a CIA agent believed to be dead, then the bang of a car-bomb explosion. After that breathtaking beginning, the action gets leisurely—too leisurely. It takes half the book for LaDuca to get to Cairo to solve the puzzle of Cerny, for whom she worked, following complications in New York and in Rome that weave into the action two major supporting characters, the Russian Yuri Federov and the Italian Gian Antonio Rizzo, who are in some respects more intriguing and complex than protagonist LaDuca. LaDuca's main partner in Cairo, Voltaire, provides more dramatic tension in his moral ambiguity than the offstage character, Cerny. Despite some plotting softness, this espionage thriller is stylish and provides an especially satisfying close without being in the least preachy. (Jan.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    The story line was OK. My main problem was the language. I was very surprised when I found several curse words throughout the book. If I wanted that I would not read from christian books!

    Read the entire triology series in two weeks. Very good and suspenseful. Right up there with the Tom Clancy's of the fictional world. Really makes you stop and think where we are in the end times with the terrosists cells that are thriving in every nation.

    I read this whole trilogy. The suspense and intrigue would have rated 5 stars. However, I expect more from a Christian author selling through Christian avenues. I was so sorely disappointed and even disgusted with the author over missing opportunities to lead his readers to Christ. Three (3) times during the course of the Trilogy, the Russian mobster point-black asks the heroine about how to become a Christian. He doesn't use those exact words, but his intent seems clear from what is written. All three times, the heroine does not answer him. Once she refers him to another book, not the Bible. What's up with that!?! What a waste of paper. Mr. Hynd, you might as well sell these books from a secular vendor and don't waste anyone's time calling it Christian fiction.
