WHITE JADE spins a web of deceit and murder across the globe, against the backdrop of a deadly international power game.
Former Recon Marine Nick Carter is a man with a dark history of emotional and physical scars. He works for the PROJECT, a covert counter-terrorism unit reporting to the President. Selena Connor is a beautiful, strong and skilled linguist. When her wealthy uncle is murdered by someone looking for an ancient book about the elixir of immortality, she’s thrown into Nick’s dangerous world.
Nick is assigned to protect Selena and help her recover the missing text. It’s the beginning of a life and death adventure reaching from San Francisco to Beijing, from Washington to the hidden chambers of Tibet. Someone is determined to take over China and attack America–and Nick and Selena are right in the line of fire.
International intrigue, terrorist acts and the threat of nuclear war form the core of this fast-paced thriller, the first volume in a series featuring Nick, Selena and the PROJECT.
This book has blown me away, this book is incredible! I loved everything about this book; it is an insanely fun, thrilling adventure that takes you on an unforgettable and sometimes terrifying journey. I have to confess; I was always destined to love this book; my husband is a Recon Marine and the protagonist in this novel, Nick Carter is a Recon Marine expert so of course, I was always going to love this book! However, although I was always going to love the protagonist, I may not have enjoyed the other aspects, for example, the writing, plot or the numerous other characters. I am so happy to write though that I LOVED everything about this book, even the non-Marine parts! It is a thrilling, captivating story that was addictive as well as intriguing. It is the perfect read if you want to be enthralled from beginning to end, it is a relentless assault of brilliance, and I would implore all you lovely readers to read it!
White Jade has numerous plot avenues but at the heart of the story is Nick Carter, a former Recon Marine who is now working for a secret organization called PROJECT. PROJECT is a mysterious agency and at the beginning of this novel you do not know much about it, this only spurs you on to read further, I know I felt this was as I desperately wanted to know more about it. All we learn at the beginning is that Carter reports directly to the President, which gives the reader the impression that this really is a secret agency, and that he is to provide security to Selene Connor who so happens to be the niece of a wealthy but essential man. As the novel progresses, the plot thickens, and soon an ancient text is thrown into the plot of the story. This causes chaos, everybody wants it, it supposedly holds the secret to immortality, and so Carter and Connor must fight for their lives, and this is the plot of this intriguing, brilliant novel.
Alex Lukeman, the author of this brilliant novel, has written a story of intrigue, violence, and action filled moments. The action-fueled tale makes the reader race through the book, turning the pages fast, absorbing all of the information. It is an exciting read that takes the reader on a whirlwind journey that catapulted the reader from San Francisco, to Washington D.C. to Beijing and so on. It is a plot that expands continuously while tieing up loose ends along the way. I loved everything about the plot; I loved the vast expanse of the story, it always kept me entertained and for that, I applaud Lukeman for his talent.
To conclude my thoughts on White Jade, I would say if you are looking for an entertaining story that will captivate and engross you from the first page to the last then this is the book for you! This incredible book gets Five Stars from me!
