“Whoever controls the flow of the money supply, irrespective of whether it’s fiat or gold currency, is the one to fear.”
The imminent launch of the Feds gold-backed currency triggers more than fierce protests when a note is dropped into Federal Reserve Chairman Frank Littleton’s coat pocket. The cryptic message is a warning someone plans to assassinate him.
A new Tracker agent and financial crimes expert joins forces with an undercover Interpol agent to infiltrate the inner sanctum of the Federal Reserve. The case turns deadly when the agents become the target for an assassin’s bullet.
Stalked by a killer, can they survive to stop the assassination and prevent a global financial cataclysm?
Clueless Gent’s Rating for Operation Navajo
The opening chapter of Operation Navajo is like the earth’s gravity. You can’t see it, but as you get deeper into the chapter, it draws the reader into the story. Although the first chapter is short, by the time it ends, the reader is hopelessly hooked!
This was my first read in the Tracker series, which I now consider to be one of my favorites. Let me tell you why.
It’s all in the writing. It’s all in the craft the author applies to the telling of the story. It’s all in the balance of what the author tells the reader, and what the author holds back – for later.
This is a story about white collar crime: the Federal Reserve system. However, if you consider the amount of action and intrigue sculpted into the pages, you probably completely forget about that, until you gather your thoughts after finishing, wondering what just happened.
“Whoever controls the flow of the money supply, irrespective of whether it is fiat or gold currency, is the one to fear.”
I was amazed at how Dickason could take a somewhat complex (and potentially boring) subject, and frame it into this compelling suspense novel. More amazing, however, is that Dickason doesn’t let the reader know exactly what “it” is until the climax begins to unfold.
A story like this could not be told without riveting characters. The FBI’s Tracker Team is made up of unique characters, each with an acute skill. The team dialogue is great, and I almost wished I could have been on that team (except for the danger part). The bad guys are just as compelling.
The character arcs are dynamic, and the overall pacing parallels the best I’ve read.
I could go on and on about what I like about this story – and this author – but I’ll do you a favor and keep it to myself. I’ll let you experience and enjoy the discovery, just as I did.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to be entertained by a good story.
Award-winning Author Anita Dickason is a twenty-two-year veteran of the Dallas Police Department. She served as a patrol officer, undercover narcotics detective, advanced accident investigator, tactical officer, and first female sniper on the Dallas SWAT team.
Anita writes about what she knows: cops and crime. Her police background provides an unending source of inspiration for her plots and characters. Many incidents and characters portrayed in her books are based on personal experience. For her, the characters are the fun part of writing as she never knows where they will take her. There is always something out of the ordinary in her stories.
In Anita’s debut novel, Sentinels of the Night, she created an elite FBI Unit, the Trackers. Since then, she has added three more Tracker crime thrillers, Going Gone!, A u 7 9, and Operation Navajo. The novels are not a series and can be read in any order.
As a Texas author, many of Anita’s books are based in Texas, or there is a link to Texas. When she stepped outside of the Tracker novels and wrote, Not Dead, she selected Meridian, a small community in central Texas for the location.
