The Gryphon Heist | Book Review


Talia Inger is a rookie CIA case officer assigned not to the Moscow desk as she had hoped but to the forgotten backwaters of Eastern Europe--a department only known as "Other." When she is tasked with helping a young, charming Moldovan executive secure his designs for a revolutionary defense technology, she figures she'll be back in DC within a few days. But that's before she knows where the designs are stored--and who's after them. With her shady civilian partner, Adam Tyler, Talia takes a deep dive into a world where only criminal minds and unlikely strategies will keep the Gryphon, a high-altitude data vault, hovering in the mesosphere.

Even Tyler is more than he seems, and Talia begins to wonder: Is he helping her? Or using her access to CIA resources to pull off an epic heist for his own dark purposes?

In this Ocean's Eleven-meets-Mission Impossible thriller, former tactical deception officer and stealth pilot James R. Hannibal offers you a nonstop thrill ride through the most daring heist ever conceived.

Publisher: Revell
Release Date: September 3, 2019



With comparisons to Ocean’s Eleven and Mission Impossible, I knew James R. Hannibal’s The Gryphon Heist would be a fun, thrilling read.

Her assignment to the Eastern European “Other” department is not the one Talia Inger desired, but it appears as a simple enough one—until she realizes a high-stakes heist will put her country at risk, and it is up to her to “save the day” (with a helpful team, of course). The pages of her story pass with gripping twists and turns, making it quite a fast-paced, action-packed adventure.

I really enjoyed The Gryphon Heist. Though the first book I’ve read by Hannibal, it certainly won’t be the last.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
