Greenwich, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/02/2013 -- The bureaucrats in Washington should know better; trying to stop CIA Agent Jordan Sandor when he’s out for revenge is like trying to stop a tsunami with words! In Sandor’s world the usual rules just don’t apply when it comes to defending his country’s freedom. Just get out of his way…and the only ones to get hurt will be the bad guys!
Hitting the #30 spot on Amazon Kindle’s Mystery/Thriller/Suspense categories, Targets of Revenge (Gallery Books) is third in Jeffrey S. Stephens’ riveting ‘Targets’ series. Due to its popularity, Amazon is now offering a promotional price for all three in the series. Following Targets of Deception and Targets of Opportunity, the latest novel tracks Sandor into the heart of the Venezuelan jungle in hot pursuit of Adina, a cold-blooded homicidal mastermind who leaves a trail of death behind him, only now he’s added one of Sandor’s close friends to his list of victims. Big mistake; don’t ever underestimate Sandor, a human bloodhound, who once he picks up the scent won’t let go until he gets revenge – and it’s not gonna be pretty!
After discovering the latest murderous plan being hatched by the ruthless terrorist, Sandor chases clues around the globe, but his unconventional methods land him on Interpol’s radar and earn him a spot on their list of top international fugitives. When he learns that New York City is the selected target for a catastrophic attack, he once again puts his life on the line to protect his countrymen.
While the plots of all three books are vastly different, the one similarity they share from beginning to end is addictive, adrenaline-pumping action. Readers can’t get enough of their hero Sandor’s exploits, saying it’s his sheer determination and defiance of his superiors that keeps them rooting for him. While being compared to the style of Clancy and Ludlum, it is undoubtedly Stephens’ own unique writing style that takes readers racing from one heart-stopping moment to the next, unable to stop reading but dreading reaching the end.
