‘The Last Operative’ retelling of Jenkins’ first novel

Jerry B. Jenkins’ new novel, “The Last Operative” is a spy-thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  A re-write of his first novel, “The Operative”, the new novel tells the story of NSA intelligence operative Jordan Kirkwood, a man with deep secrets even from his own family.

Filled with intrigue, excitement and romance, The Last Operative will introduce you to our new world of terrorism.  You will hang on every word until the very end.  In addition, Jenkins proves that writers can write up-to-date thrillers without using profanity and sex in order to gain interest. 

In the Author’s Note, Jenkins explains a new technique in his attribution of dialogue.  Even though there were several occasions where I had to re-read a section to find out who was speaking, the new technique was well employed with little confusion.  The almost 400-page book looks daunting, but it’s a quick read and highly recommended. 

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., as part of their Book Review Blogger Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
