The Icarus Prediction tells the tale of once disgraced CIA agent, now Wall Street up and comer Jarrod Stryker. He has applied his CIA training to Wall Street investing and is fast rising to the top. When a terrorist attack across the globe puts his world in jeopardy, he must fix it by using all that he knows and bend a few rules along the way. He just has to not put his trust in the wrong people along the way.
I suppose it will be no surprise that I enjoyed this book or that my favorite spy archetype is the nerdy-can-handle-himself-in-a-pinch kind of guy. This story showcases the ultimate in insider trading, still it was a blast a minute to read through. It is a gripping, keep you on your toes kind of book. The story moves fast from the get go with its allusional foreshadowing in Beirut, right through to the twists at the end. It is scary at how believable it is. Jarrod Stryker will stand tall in pantheon of literary super spies.
The book was a gift in exchange for an honest review
