Chasing the White Lion (Book Review)


By Benjamin H. Liles

          The last book by James Hannibal earned worthy praise from me, The Gryphon Heist. He has done a superb job yet again, this time with his book Chasing the White Lion. James Hannibal, the way I understand it in the sense of what Louis L'Amour would say of his characters, is the kind of guy who can wake up sensing something is wrong when the day is bright and clear as day. In fact, what can be known of James Hannibal is that he "is a two-time Silver Falchion award-winner for his Section 13 mysteries, a Thriller Award nominee for his Nick Baron ops series, and a Selah Award finalist for his Clandestine Service series" (from the book cover of this book).

          What I can say about this wonderful action-filled book is that it goes above the gift of story-telling he achieved with Gryphon Heist. I recall saying of that book: "I can say is it's worth the read. It's exhilarating. It's continuous action from front to back. And above all, it's just simply...wonderful." Considering he has another hit with this book, which is the second in the Talia Inger series, he has another strong book with the same characters previously from Gryphon Heist.

          What you will find with this book is that even though Talia has reconciled with the man who betrayed her father, she still can't trust him, yet. When duty calls to go after a syndicate boss known as the Jungle, she has to rescue a group of kidnapped refugee children. She gets more than she bargains for running a jagged edge against her family's dark past. All in the hopes of capturing the leader of the Jungle, the White Lion. From start to stop the story is intriguing, daring, and a non-stop suspense-filled thrill ride, you get another amazing story from James Hannibal. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest review.
