In Association with
As an experienced hunter who was trained by the Israeli Mossad—and who now works for the CIA—Agent Dan Gordon has been chasing a con artist known as the Chameleon for twenty years. For the last few years, the Chameleon has been off the grid, but then he resurfaces in Sydney, Australia, putting the CIA and Gordon back on his trail. However, he slips through Gordon’s hands once again, and the hunt continues.

The Chameleon is into more than just bank fraud; he’s an undercover sleeper agent, and the chase leads Gordon to Iran, where he’s put undercover to help keep the world’s power from becoming unbalanced. Danger and betrayal lurks on all sides, making it less likely that Gordon will make it out of Tehran alive.

With its tight plot, The Chameleon Conspiracy takes readers into the world of international law enforcement. A former legal intelligence-gathering operative, Mr. Carmon offers just enough information without crossing the line into issues of national security. He seamlessly blends fiction with fact, bringing his readers an intellectual read instead of a hair-raising one.

The Chameleon Conspiracy focuses more on how an agent does his job than it does on the action. As a result, I found it hard to stay interested in this story, since it often becomes bogged down with so much behind-the-scenes rubble that the action comes to a halt. In small doses, this can lend authenticity to a fast-paced read. Unfortunately, though, Mr. Carmon became heavy-handed with that particular saltshaker, and I found that I’d read a couple of chapters, get bored, and pick up something else.

If you’re highly interested in what goes on behind the scenes of a CIA operation, then you’ll enjoy reading The Chameleon Conspiracy. Otherwise, I recommend sticking with a Jason Bourne thriller instead.
