    1 thought on “Countdown in Cairo”

    1. I have just now finished this third in Noel Hynd's Russian Trilogy. It must be said that I have never read a trilogy so well conceived as such. Each book stands on its own, and yet reading all three lends depth and satisfaction to the whole.At the beginning of Part II of this volume, Alex, the accidental master spy of the series, remembers how she got her start. A young student alone in Europe, she faced and mastered that most extreme form of self-reliance - away from home in alien surroundings [...]

    2. The third book in the author's Russian trilogy, draws you in by presenting the most suspenseful chapter of the story first (lifting it out of the chronological narrative). With the intrigue of assassins, double agents, and others with mixed loyalties, the author keeps you wondering. If you want a story with lots of suspense, that isn't preachy, this is it.It is a good read, but in each volume of the trilogy, I kept hoping that there would be more of a resolution, more of a moral to the story, es [...]

    3. This is the last book in Hynd's Russian Trilogy, and it mostly serves as a way to tie up all the loose ends and remaining questions from previous books. There really isn't that much of a new mystery to be solved. Just the reappearance of someone from the previous books that is supposed to be dead, tracking him down in Cairo, and figuring out how he fits into other thingsleading to the unraveling of most of the quandaries. Unlike the two previous books, this book mostly follows the story from Ale [...]

    4. The third book in the Russian Trilogy (following Conspiracy in Kiev and Midnight in Madrid).Special Agent Alexandra LaDuca is on the move again, this time to Cairo. It's been a very busy year following a Russian mobster, the death of her boyfriend, a massacre in a remote village in Venezuela, a stolen relic, and now the search for a CIA man who "died" in Paris. A witness has seen him alive in Cairo before her boyfriend was killed by a car bomb meant to kill both of them.Alex is smart, multi-ling [...]

    5. Countdown in Cairo starts out with a dramatic beginning with the morgue as the backdrop and then drops back to the beginning of the story. The set up to the main story was slow at times, but that is because the story is rich in detail of locations and background. It is certainly worth the wait! There are a number of background facts about the Russian events mixed in with the fiction creating an interesting blend. All three of the books feature Alexandra LaDuca, a strong female character that is [...]

    6. The end of the trilogy brought some expected happenings in completely unexpected ways along the journey of an excellent story. Alex LaDuca's character is real and believable, and, if I'm honest, is who I would like to be in my dreams. From Rizzo to Federov and everyone in between the culmination is wrapped up quite nicelywith just enough ribbon left to (hopefully) untie the bow and go back into action again. I am very glad I stumbled onto this series. It fed my appetite for action, adventure and [...]

    7. This story was a little better than Midnight in Madrid in the history lesson factor. At least here the history lessons given had at least a semblance of connectivity to the story. Again, I didn’t verify any of what history he gave, so I won’t be quoting it to anyone.The story actually wraps up quite well. Alex is sent to Cairo to find a US agent who has defected. She meets again with Rizzo of Rome and Yuri Federov, and eventually begins to put together all the puzzle pieces of the past year [...]

    8. The third book did not promise to impress at first, but it became more and more interesting as it started to unravel some of the mysteries and tie together some pieces from the first two books. Once it got started, I found myself staying up a bit late to read at night. II and III were my favorites of the series, and I was pretty happy with how the trilogy ended. All in all, a really good series!

    9. I liked the way the author wrapped up this story. I also enjoyed more of the history in this book. This one gave a good description of Egyptian politics and also of Russian history. It's obvious that the author is really current in his Middle Eastern politics.

    10. Sad Reality to HopeHynd comes through every time. The picture he painted of Cairo made me glad that I was reading it from here in pastoral Southern Arizona. The ending was wonderful.

    11. I just couldn't bring myself to finish this book. I loved the first two books in the series but this one just got too depressing and I couldn't keep going.

    12. Always a good read! Well researched and knows how to maintain interest throughout the trilogy! Like this author a lot!

    13. I really enjoyed this trilogy. If your looking for a FBI/CIA government conspiracy book with a strong female lead this trilogy is for you!
