The Last Agent (Charles Jenkins Book 2) Kindle Edition
An Amazon Charts, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal bestselling series.
An American operative in Russia is on the run for his life in a thriller of heart-stopping betrayal and international intrigue by the New York Times bestselling author of The Eighth Sister.
Betrayed by his own country and tried for treason, former spy Charles Jenkins survived an undercover Russian operation gone wrong. Exonerated, bitter, and safe, the retired family man is through with duplicitous spy games. Then he learns of a woman isolated in Moscow’s notorious Lefortovo Prison.
If it’s Paulina Ponomayova, the agent who sacrificed her life to save his, Jenkins can’t leave her behind. But there’s no guarantee it’s her. Or proof Paulina is still alive. To find out, Jenkins must return to Russia. Next move: blackmail Viktor Federov, a former Russian officer with his own ax to grind, into helping him infiltrate Lefortovo. The enemy who once pursued Jenkins across three continents is now the only man Jenkins can trust.
Every step of the way—from Moscow to Scandinavia to the open ocean—they’re hunted by a brutal Russian agent on a killer quest of his own. Out of loyalty to Paulina—dead or alive—Jenkins is putting everyone’s life on the line for a new mission that could be his last.

A little about Dugoni first. Although I am British and the nearest I have come to Seattle is passing through the airport a couple of times I feel I know the area intimately. Dugoni has a fantastic intimate style that makes you feel like you are there, walking the streets with his characters and living the bumps, humps and traumas along their journeys. His story lines are at times simplistic, at times extremely complex but always gripping. You might feel you know where the story is going but you are often wrong. However right or wrong you enjoy the journey.
The two Charles Jenkins books are different from other Dugoni stories taking you away from Seattle to more exotic locations. You fear for Jenkins safety, regret his stupid bravery, feel for his family and hope for his success. Dugoni paints the pictures of Russia, Norway, Turkey and Greece as he does Seattle.
It is no wonder Robert Dugoni is such a successful Amazon writer. I strongly recommend any of his books but this Charles Jenkins series in particular. It takes a bit to get started but once you do you won't regret it. Excellent fast moving counter espionage intrigue.
If I have one slight quibble it is that, whilst in this story line there was a lot of excitement and near misses, these were in the end a bit overdone. I found myself groaning when I realised that there were yet more hoops for the hero to jump through before his ordeal was over. The plot is, like the previous (and first) Charles Jenkins thriller, a prolonged chase involving just about every mode of transport you could think of. I would love the next book in the series, for which the foundation has already been laid, to have a more complex storyline.
Having said that, I raced through this book and greatly enjoyed it. A really good author.
Well written with a great story line. Good returning characters. Descriptive scenes in all the countries mentioned. Great action. Well worth reading and for me personally looking forward to a follow up
I’ve thought about this and realise this book (book 2) is every bit as brilliant as book 1. Yet I should have paused for a week or two. You can only take so much of a great thing. Tad like watching comedy, a good comedy film never lasts more than 1 hour 40 minutes.
I conclude therefore that I was just too excited and should have controlled myself. Yet for the avoidance of doubt - a great high paced read.
