Things along America's southern border are rapidly reaching the boiling point. American girls are being snatched from their homes, ranches are burning, and armed Mexican troops cross the border at will in support of narcotics smugglers and illegal immigrants. By day, Americans take up arms and plan reprisals. An all-out border war is no longer inconceivable--it's happening! On assignment for the British Secret Service, a man leads a mysterious expedition into the furthest reaches of the Amazon River, where he is captured by indigenous cannibals. Forced into slave labor, he witnesses the unimaginable: golden domes and minarets rise beneath the rainforest canopy. Vast terror armies are being recruited and trained in the jungle. Their goal: a vicious jihad that will unite one continent--and destroy another. They possess weapons only dreamed of by the Western allies. Somehow he must escape his captors and live to tell the tale.--From publisher description.… (mer)

I really enjoyed this book. ( )
  Jerry_Sonenblick | Feb 25, 2016 |
Non-stop action and (for once) plausible villains make for very good entertainment. This author never disappoints and deserves more appreciation from the political thriller fans. ( )

Totally implausible plot. Waste of time. ( )

Hidden deep in the Amazon Rainforest, Islamic terrorist Muhammad Top is planning an attack. The target: America. The method: Unknown – and it is up to British MI6 officer Alex Hawke to find out. Previously a slave under Top, he had managed to escape. After recovering in Britain, he and Scotland Yard Inspector Ambrose Congreve visit a dying German ambassador named Zimmermann who worked for Top. As he dies, he gives them a coded message for his wife that details Top’s attack. If they can decode it, they could possibly save America and stop Top. Over in America, Stokely Jones – who works for Hawke – finds high tech missiles from Venezuela which could be used to attack America. Trouble is also brewing along the Mexican border. Illegal immigrants and drugs are smuggled over the border daily, girls are being kidnapped, and police officers like Prairie, Texas sheriff Franklin Dixon can do very little to stop the Mexicans, who are in league with the Islamic terrorists. Hawke, along with Congreve and Jones, are America’s only hope of survival, as they head back into the belly of the beast to either take down Top or die trying.
Spy by Ted Bell is an action/adventure novel that deals with the rise of terrorism in South America and the violence of the drug cartels in Mexico. Both of these are threateningly real situations today, and are very dangerous to America. In real life, drugs are smuggled over the border daily, and terrorists have attacked America before (such as 9/11). This made it very easy to connect to Spy, as I have heard similar things in the news, and makes the events in the book seem real to me. One of the book’s themes is how foreign enemies invade America, and as Sheriff Franklin Dixon said “A border ain’t nothin’ but a law drawn in the sand.” Similar to a line in the sand, which can be ignored or altered easily, a border is useless. Since there is nothing but a law to stop drug smugglers and terrorists from crossing the border, and the law means nothing to them, they cross the border anyways. This puts the lives of Americans at risk, as terrorists could easily get into America unnoticed, and people can be attacked by illegal immigrants, both of which happen in the book. Another of the book’s themes is self-sacrifice, risking one’s own life to try to save others. Alex Hawke, Ambrose Congreve, and Stokely Jones all do this when they venture into the Amazon Rainforest to attempt to prevent Muhammad Top’s attack. I thought Spy was a great book, and would recommend it to anyone, especially people who love action/adventure books. Every page in Spy is full of action, and I could not put it down once I had started reading it. -J.C.

This book is awful. I was ready to give up on it several times but forced myself to complete it. After finishing this book, I couldn't tell you which character was the "spy." ( )
