Simply Brilliant This is my sixth Tim Tigner book, and I have loved every one of them This is a very well written and clever book I like a story that can keep me guessing, and there are plenty of twist and turns to make this a very enjoyable read The Manhattan Project, code named by the Russians as Sunrise , would give the Americans total control of space and everything up there for only 70 Billion dollars The most important thing they would control is the Satellites, which scares the hell out o [...]
Tim Tigner a star in the spy thriller category The Lies of Spies was exceptional Highly recommended.
Not bad, but not great There are some clever bits, but then soap opera cliches crash into the techno thriller I thought maybe it would become Get Smart but it never got funny There are better spy novels, or even funny spy novels I liked it enough to finish it, but I would not read any in the series.
Overall was a decent book I am looking for something enthralling and makes me forget where I am and this book just got me there but barely Warning Plot spoilers ahead.A lot of the story line was not very believable especially when the two top secret agents got together with each other Also, Achilles being a super spy, in the beginning that he succumbed so easily to the opposing force and then was put on an island and brainwashed into believing he was married seemed so way out there The whole plo [...]
Spy games.Read all the books Tim Tigner wrote, they all excellent Highly recommend to everyone to read them But I had a hard time with this book, definitely it s not for the long ago retired female readers Also what s going on between the Russians and our government over Syria, and hacking Keep asking myself could this kind of conspiracy be happening or happen one day
I was a Beta reader for this book, just getting back to reading the officially released version Like the subtle changes that were made and still loved the story Spies for both Russia and the USA find themselves working together, figuring if they don t, they ll both be wanted dead by both countries Fast paced action, likeable characters, suspense and a twist of romance make this a fun read.
This was greate twists and turns made it so I was skipping my chores to keep track of the spies progress I hate to give any spoilers away, so I won t, but just know that Achilles lives up to his name and read this book
Tim has weaved yet another suspenseful tale He spins a very believable story complete with political agendas, corruption, and suspense This book stands alone, having not read any of previous books before now I will be reading ALL of his books The twists, turns, and nuances keep you frantically turning the pages hard to put down I mean you can catch up on sleep, right It was the specifics that really sold a certain event during the story regarding a major twist no spoiler Collins comment at end o [...]
Excellent second story in the Kyle Achilles story line The characters are believable the action is ongoing and left me wanting to see what would happen next I will definitely read of Mr Tigner s book and can t wait for the next Kyle Achilles book Will Max and Zoya be in the next one
Everyone in Washington s a lawyer, dear The movie star handsome, man s man Tim Tigner comes to his role as a novelist specializing in political intrigue with a rich background His academic preparation is a combination of mathematics and philosophy with psychology and radiology, but after academia his instinct for investigation and thrill seeking led him to serve in the Green Berets, specializing in Russian and Soviet counterintelligence When Perestroika Glasnost opened Russia or at least by thei [...]
WOW Tim Tigner just keeps getting better and better And the fact that the author is a Special Forcesw trained Soviet Counterintellengence expert make the current geopolitical situation appropriate foundation for an white knuckle military techno thriller whose plot COULD be taken from current headlines Tigner certainly does know how to pace his plot and develop his characters This book is very hard to put down Indeed I was fortunate to be on vacation in the Rocky Mountains and had the luxury of f [...]
Espionage par excellence Author Tim Tigner does it, again, bringing us an especially exciting sequel to his first Kyle Achilles book, Pushing Brilliance The characters are vividly portrayed, the writing is clear and precise, and the action is superb And that the author draws upon his own experience, both from the world of business and from his time spent in military special operations is quite apparent, and only serves to add authenticity to the book Tigner can definitely count me among his fans [...]

GREAT SERIES CONTINUES The Lies of Spies is the second book in the Achilles series This book can be read as a standalone Though I highly suggest you read the first book Pushing Brilliance to have some of the backstory on Achilles There is a lot of violence.The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I m not going to repeat that info here The author did a good job of summarizing what happened in Pushing Brilliance for new readers to give them a better understanding of Kyle Achilles It ha [...]
Tim Tiger s Achilles series keeps me awake at night The stories he spins are frightening all the so because they are so damn plausible In Lies of Spies Achilles is captured while planning a high stakes secret mission for the President He escapes, taking a famous Russian actress as hostage she was involved with the kidnappers and makes his way back to the USA to discover he is wanted for treason While trying to figure out how to clear his name he stumbles onto a plot to destroy the American econ [...]
Tim Tigner s background in counter intelligence shines through in this, second of a series, thriller His hero, an ex Olympic athlete and US Agent is once again set to foil the enemies of the State whilst off the books because of what has gone before.Nominally I suspect marketed as an airport page turner, which it achieves admirably, what sets it apart is the characterisations and believable motivation particularly of the bad guys No black hat because they re bad here, instead everyone takes thei [...]
I was given a beta version of this book by the author for feedback It is the second in the Achilles Healy series After the first book, Pushing Brilliance, set the bar high, this thriller had a lot of work to do But it did it A fast paced thriller, it kept me turning pages as quickly as I could manage.In this story, Achilles takes on a top secret mission only to be betrayed and deemed a traitor Chased by agents from both super powers, he finds himself forming an unlikely alliance Working with som [...]

Fabulous StorytellingTim Tigner hasn t disappointed me yet I ve read all his stories and they are all brilliant This book is no exception I love the unexpected friendship that blossomed between Achilles and Max, the Russian spy They made a great team that put their mission on track A mission that was fantastically thought out and twisted in unusual ways I can t wait to see what Tigner comes up with next.
This is a really fun and exciting spy book I liked this better than the first Achilles book in this series Once again, an exciting book that is hard to put down I loved the new characters and hope to see of them in future stories in this series Mr Tigner makes every chapter a page turner Great read
What a ride This was an amazing spy story that kept me on the edge of my seat In his acknowledgments Mr Tigner states that it is hard to surprise the readers without confusing them but I think he has accomplished that here This novels keeps your brain spinning Absolutely recommended.
WowTim Tigner is one of the best authors in the international spy thriller genre Every one of his books is a great read and a great ride This one is no exception His characters are compelling The action is well plotted and nonstop This being only the second book in the series, I m look forward to following the Achilles saga for years to come.
This book had you captivated from the first page to the last Tim has produced another thriller that encompasses action science and politics in a masterpiece of literature I can t wait for the next Achilles book Dick Hill has once again had a top notch performance and brought this book to life with his telling of The Lies of Spies
Great thrill ride I enjoyed this story on several different levels While I have never considered climbing Lover s Leap, I have taken many photos of it, since it s only minutes away It was fun to read about an area I m familiar with This book will keep the reader fully engrossed to the end I look forward to
Great Read Excellent storyline and style that kept my attention from start to finish If, like me, you enjoy clandestine operations and suspense thrillers, this is a must read Strongly recommend
