“Strait of Hormuz” is the third book in the Marc Royce Adventure series by Davis Bunn. Filled with danger, adventure and a twinge of romance, “Strait of Hormuz” will be another hit with Davis Bunn fans. Beginning with a new assignment for Marc Royce, he is joined (or saved rather) by an operative with the Mossad, Kitra Korban, who was sent to keep an eye on the undercover operation. When a gallery explodes and a man is killed, the turn of events lead Royce and Kitra on a mission to save the world from an Iranian plan to cut off shipping routes from the Strait of Hormuz.
As always, Davis Bunn incorporates action and suspense to make a story that is hard to quit reading until the end. “Strait of Hormuz” can be read without reading the previous books in the series; however, in order to completely enjoy the story and appreciate the romance and intrigue, you may desire to read them in order beginning with “The Lion of Babylon” followed by “Rare Earth”. There are references in the book to events covered in the others.
I did not follow the plot well until the end of the book as I was focused on what was going on with the characters. I’m sure that reading the book out of order may have had something to do with it.
