    Excellent read! It's sometimes a bit hard to keep up with whose who in these type of books, however I felt like I was actually watching a spy movie! I was really pulling for Tom and Jay, but we always seem to like the bad boys! 😁 Eager to read more of CJ Carver's books!

    4 star read. This is the third book in Carver's Captain Jay McCaulay thriller series. Jay is witness to an assassination and sees a blonde woman kill a man brutally. And when Max Blake is named as the murderer and arrested, Jay knows she has to find out who set up her friend and how to get him free. But her investigation takes some interesting turns and people she knows are killed or targets of a group of very dangerous people. And Jay and her fiance Tom face a problem from Tom's past that threatens to break them apart and send Jay into Max's arms. A very good read, and the ending read like there might be more books to come. I hope so.

    I have never struggled to read a book as I did with this one. The former missionary/spy angle just wasn’t for me. The only emotion I had for the characters was the initial hate I had for Sofie. But other than that, I felt nothing for the other characters. It seemed to bring in too many characters at one point that didn’t make sense. As I continued to read I just knew it was a one star rating. The last 30 pages of the book are the most interesting and they moved it to a two star book. I only read this because a co-worker loved it, but it just wasn’t the book for me.

    ‘The Honest Assassin’ by C J Carver
    Published by Severn House, May 2010. ISBN: 978-0-7278-6909-8

    At the opening of this book Jay McCauley is making a go of her relationship with DI Tom Sutton of the Bristol police, with the disturbing presence of enigmatic Max Blake safely removed to South America – or so Jay thinks until he pops up in her garden one morning. She attributes her increased heartbeat to the fact that Tom is in the shower, but a girl often deludes herself. This is not a social call, Max says he needs her help, his sister is sick in Brussels and he has to go to her, but cannot miss an important meeting so he has booked Jay on Eurostar tomorrow to attend the meeting in his place. The meeting is with his friend Solomon Neil. ‘It won’t take long’, says Max, you will be back by the evening. But explaining it to Tom is a different matter, to get past an awkward situation Jay suggests that Tom invite his daughter Sofie for a stay-over. As Tom has been trying to engineer his daughter and his girlfriend to meet he accepts with alacrity, and Jay breaths a sigh of relief.

    The meeting with Sol is effected quickly - too quickly, hardly has she greeted him, than he is murdered in front of her. Although, Jay was witness and clearly saw the assassin, her description is ignored by the police. No one seems to believe her. The word is that Max Blake is the murderer, and he is now a wanted man.

    This thriller moves at a fast pace, as Jay tries to reach the right people to prove Blake’s innocence, but there seems no one that she or Blake can trust. So Jay sets out to uncover the truth as to why Blake is clearly being set-up, as even his own people don’t seem to want to help or believe in his innocence. It’s a heart-stopping rollercoaster of events, that worsens with every hour that passes. And not just for her, the unknown enemy threatens her family, and murders an old friend, then comes after her.

    Again another book that deprived me of my sleep, as I sat up into the early hours to finish it. The combination of a death defying investigation, and the daily problems of Tom’s teenage daughter, not to mention the complication of Max Blake is a winning formula. Each element serving only to enhance the other, making this a not-to-be-missed read. Highly recommended.
