bookreview
Trader of Secrets by Steve Martini is the 12th book in the action-packed series featuring attorney Paul Madriani. This is a continuation of the previous book, The Rule of Nine, and picks up right where that book left off. See my review of The Rule of Nine here. The cliffhanger ending of The Rule of Nine made me glad I had Trader of Secrets to dive into.

I have only read The Rule of Nine and Trader of Secrets in the Paul Madriani series. I have seen several reviews that do not like this story line at all. I am thoroughly enjoying Madriani’s world travels as he tries to track down the elusive killer, Liquida and doing what he can to save the world from unknown weapons and warfare. I admit I am not a big fan of Joselyn’s character. Some of her dialogue comes across as insensitive and downright mean at times. Sarah doesn’t seem as intelligent as she is supposed to be. I much prefer Paul and Harry and their interactions.

In this installment of the Paul Madriani series, we jet off to Thailand and Paris on the tail of Liquida. Liquida is also on a subsequent journey involving two missing NASA scientists who are selling technology and information. This thriller was fast-paced and kept me turning page after page. I enjoy the alternating points of view, so we get all sides of the story throughout the book. This is one series I know I will enjoy reading and I am already looking forward to the next book. I’m hoping to go back and read earlier Paul Madriani books as well. Trader of Secrets by Steve Martini is another winner for me.

I’ll be reviewing the next book, The Enemy Inside, on June 4th.

  1. Thanks for sharing your review on this entry of the series. I’ve enjoyed earlier books but haven’t yet caught up with this one. Looks like I should be adding it to my TBR stack!
