Roundtable Reviews features little more than book reviews and book news. We don't just stick to one genre. We have varying tastes and may be after a heartwarming romance one day, a new adult novel the next, and a creepy horror the day after that. Our book reviews always take one thought into consideration -- Would I pay the asking price for this book?

Robert Ludlum's The Janson Option by Paul Garrison
The third title in this
new action/adventure series, the assignment private security expert
Paul Janson and his partner, Jessica Kincaid, tackle involves
rescuing a kidnapped woman from the clutches of Somali pirates.
Allegra Helms’ husband,
Kingsman Helms, heads a powerful oil company that is trying to get
its hands on as much African oil as possible. With unlimited
resources, Kingsman will pay anything to obtain his wife’s freedom.
But once in place, Janson and Kincaid realize that the pirates are
the least of their problems.
There’s much more going
on here than just freeing a kidnap victim. In fact, perhaps she is
also enmeshed in a sinister plot to create a situation that would
allow her scheming spouse to overthrow the local government and make
Somalia his base for similar overthrows on the Dark Continent.
A series that has already
attracted a new generation of readers, this is another fast-paced
story that offers numerous surprises that will satisfy the demanding
standards of any reader who only reads the top thriller writers.
