    1. My biggest issue with most spy thrillers is that they can be unrealistic to the point of campiness -- with heroes that don't miss or bleed, women falling over each other to have sex with the hero, villains that are more caricatures than substance, and impossible technology that borders on magic. Clive Cussler, Ted Bell, and even his holiness, Ian Fleming, all come to mind when considering these tropes.Then there are grittier, more realistic spy thrillers. Of course, the world still hangs in the [...]



    2. Brett James' debut novel, The Deadfall Project, takes you on a journey through countries, car chases and spy-thrilling situations that will keep you tied to your beach chair or comfy recliner until you've turned the final page.The Deadfall Project is modern in scope, but contains the spy and suspense techniques of the great mystery-thrillers of the 40s. As James himself, described his book - it's "the evolution of the spy in fiction." Brett's main character in The Deadfall Project - Grey Stark - [...]


    3. I was not familiar with this book or author at all when I received it as a gift. I heard that it was a modest success, and that people who like Raymond Chandler and Ian Fleming books would like it. I liked the idea of diving into a total unknown, so I started readingMMARYCIA Agent Grey Stark is an aging operative who has spent the last several years stationed in France. He has been “swept under the rug” after causing a fiasco in Berlin during the Cold War, and to add to his misery, his Frenc [...]


    4. *Disclaimer: I received a copy from the First Reads Program.*This was a page turned from the time I opened the cover. I've never read an espionage thriller and thoroughly enjoyed every page. James kept me guessing until the very last page. I was pleased to read something with a strong and feisty female lead. The dynamics between the characters gave this book plenty of depth to really connect with the characters. Although the main background story is centered around terrorism, James didn't fall [...]


    5. The best thing you can say about an espionage thriller is to wonder aloud who would play the main character in the movie version of the novel. If you want to see the movie version of a thriller, then you know the book got all the important stuff right. The Deadfall Project is terrific thriller in all of the right places.Complicated leading man who is in it for love of country, fighting to save the world? Check, yeah we got that. Drop dead good-looking female partner? Yeah, we can check that one [...]


    6. The Deadfall Project is a traditional spy thriller in the same vein as the books of Robert Ludum and Jack Higgins. Deadfall Project starts off with Grey Stark, a CIA agent who has a messy past so the government sends him somewhere so he can be quietly forgotten, until a nuclear Bomb almost goes off in Paris. Grey Stark wants to get back in with the CIA and sees the bomb as his chance to prove he still has what it takes to be a great spy. When his soon to be ex-wife Leigh busts in on a important [...]


    7. (Note: This review is based on a free copy of the e-book)There were a few things wrong with this book, but I think there were more right with it. First of all, it dropped from 4 to 3 stars for these reasons: (In reverse order of importance)1. Flashbulbs "popping" at a news conference. News photographers (even in France) haven't used flashbulbs that "pop" in over 50 years. Flashing strobes yes, but popping flashbulbs--definitely no! A very disconcerting mistake that definitely "popped" this reade [...]


    8. Brett James's "The Deadfall Project" is a smartly-written and suspenseful espionage thriller in the Robert Ludlum/John Le Carre mold. What is most impressive is that it is his debut novel, one that does not devolve into either timidity or pretentiousness the way some debut novels do. James has an exciting story to tell, and he tells it well. Grey Stark is a retired CIA agent living in France. He is asked to come out of retirement when a failed nuclear bomb is discovered in Paris, linked to Irani [...]


    9. I was fairly disappointed with this book. Let me first say what I like before I get into what really ruined the book for me.I liked the writing style. Brett James painted vivid pictured with his words and eloquently described the various backdrops in which the book took place. The description of the gore at the end may be a little much for some people though. I also liked his characters. He developed the characters well and the main protagonist had such a rich background that I enjoyed when he d [...]


    10. I don't normally read what you'd call 'airport books' but this one was written by a friend of mine. And it's fantastic. You can only get this one through at the moment, but I would *highly* recommend it. It's a spy story, basically, although it certainly stretches the boundaries of what that means. It's going to appeal to casual readers who get into the davinci code kind of thing, but it's far better written than that book. It put me in mind of Ludlum's Bourne novels, or perhaps Forsythe's Day [...]


    11. If you are looking for a good spy story where the main character is not your typical run of the mill good guy then this is the book you are looking for.The book is written in such a way that it doesn't feel stretched out or overly detailed, but detailed enough to really draw you into the story.The book ends with a bang but I feel like there are several open loose ends that would indicate a sequel to the adventures of Grey Stark.I'm personally not the biggest fan of spy stories, but I had a good [...]


    12. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and stayed up late several nights just to find out what happens next. The book starts out fast and doesn't let go until the end. And there are enough plot twists to keep you guessing. With spy thrillers, I think you have to get caught up in the action, but the characters also need to be deep enough to be believable and empathetic. James accomplishes both.


    13. I wanted to like this book more, but sadly, a lot of it was telegraphed from the beginning. There are a couple of interesting developments, plot-wise, but between the easy-to-figure-out villains (who I think the author thought would be harder to figure out) and the typographical errors (loose =/= lose) I just couldn't bring myself to give it 4 stars.



    14. OMG this was a great book. The characters were entertaining,the plot strong, and it was loaded with action. I don't want to say too much and ruin it for the reader.


    15. Judgung by all the main character endures, this should have ben called "Superman 5". Nevertheless, it's a really good thriller that I give 4 and a half stars.




    16. Have you ever read a novel that seemed tailor made for the media cyclone of current events? Ever read a work of fiction that deftly tapped into the fears and machinations of an entire country? Ever read one that did all of that three years ahead of time? Well the 2009 thriller The Deadfall Project is just that book. In a time when tensions with Iran and North Korea seem to be coming to a head, The Deadfall Project explores what could happen if it were proven that such a rogue state had obtained [...]


    17. The Deadfall Project is a fast-paced spy thriller that, for an indie release, is decently self-edited, (only a very few issues with sentence syntax and word choices).Grey Stark is an aging semi-retired CIA operative banished by the agency to France after a major operation he was running in Berlin went sideways. He's been cooling his heels in Paris since just before the fall of the Berlin wall. Now, as his wife is divorcing him, he gets an assignment that may just be an indication of his exile co [...]


    18. Not amazing. Not fast moving. I did start to enjoy it more after a while, but there are much better thrillers out there.

    20. Disclaimer: I was sent a free copy of this book from the publishing company to read and review. I had just finished reading the new James Bond book (Carte Blanche) and the publisher had seen my review here on GoodReads. So, with that disclaimer, my brief review:I won't bother with a brief synopsis, as one is already provided here on GoodReads.Let me begin with the strengths: James does a great job of writing twists and turns into the story. The narrative is broken up into four parts and I enjoye [...]


    21. I received this book free through the giveaway program. Also Brett James was born here in Chapel Hill, NC before making his way to the Big Apple. But I won't let either of those facts bias my review.One of the other reviewers took issue with the author's excessive use of metaphors and similes. I noticed that also but it's only in the first few chapters. I think a better criticism would be the one that was made by Pamela on February 19th regarding incongruous or exaggerated situations. Particula [...]


    22. It was just luck that the bomb malfunctioned. A nuclear device in the basement of a bank in Paris. It did get a security guard that stumbled onto it killed with a well placed bullet as the Arab bailed out of the windowA agent Grey Stark is sent to investigate. He' been in exile in Paris for twenty years, effectively retired after a hunting expedition in East Germany for the members of a team hat had killed his whole network on a mission gone bad. It was said he'd personally killed seventy-five E [...]


    23. Wow. What's not good to say about this author's first endeavor? I thoroughly enjoyed this book, though it was much to my girlfriend's disapproval as I chose to not put it down on one too many occasions. Thankfully for my relationship, even though 400 pages, it's a quick read. As for the characters and the story, this is not your usual, infallible, everything goes as planned, hero wins every fight scene, Bourne Identity kind of book (though fans and followers of Mr. Ludlum and the Bourne movie se [...]


    24. The book has many Ludlumesque moments. And perhaps should be complimented that it managed to do so while not being a such a long story. It is a fairly short book that never outlives his stay. That said its ending comes rather quickly as did the resolution of the story. Which must be said is a satisfying one but not the most unexpected or original one.If you like Ludlum you will enjoy this story, it makes for some great beachreading and can easily be laid down and is easy to pick up again. The wr [...]


    25. Suffice it to say I won't accept an offer of a free book to read again. Unless its from a proven author.I also admit I couldn't finish this book. I literally couldn't read another paragraph so loaded with metaphors and similes. I pulled out a paragraph at random that wasn't actually describing anyone or anything and it had 2 metaphors and 3 similes in it. I'm not a writer, but I would much rather see someone who's starting out as a novelist to try and be honest to their own language and their st [...]


    26. A traditional but gritty and well-paced thriller, with a fresh, reluctant protagonist and subtle plot twists, great character development, and good pacing. A CIA officer, Grey Stark, is sent off to a quiet posting to be forgotten until a nuclear device almost detonates in Paris. Stark sees it as his chance to get back into the action and prove himself. Along the way, his wife, already seeking a separation is dragged into it as well. Stark is handled pretty well and has many flaws: he’s not goo [...]
