The China Gambit: A Craig Page Thriller
By Allan Topol
Vantage Point 2012

The China Gambit introduces Craig Page, a daring and resourceful former CIA agent in the first book of a trilogy.

When his daughter, Francesca - a New York City reporter - dies in an "automobile accident," Craig smells a conspiracy and wants vengeance.

Joined by Francesca's editor, Elizabeth Crowder, they begin to peel back the conspiracy layer by layer finding out that much more is at stake than his daughter's death. The United States is a target.

Oil, money, weapons, and greed are all on the table, but only one side can win. Craig and Elizabeth have to stay one step ahead of those that don't want their treachery to come to light. They travel around the world to fit the puzzle together. They must find proof of the plan and discover who is behind it. Is it the governments or just a few rogue people?

This story is fast-paced and brings you in right from the beginning. The action starts on the first page and doesn't stop until the last page. You get to know the characters and their motivation. There are so many twists and turns that you will not know until the very end who is behind the conspiracy. There are shootouts, car chases, kidnappings, secret meetings and so much more. The story has a satisfying ending yet sets the next book up perfectly. I will be waiting for the next installment in the trilogy.
