Today I’m sharing a review of James R. Hannibal’s Chasing the White Lion. It’s book 2 in the Talia Inger series and I’m so hoping for a book 3. If you haven’t read book one yet, you need to add it to your TBR pile!
About the Book
Young CIA officer Talia Inger has reconciled with the man who assassinated her father, but that doesn’t mean she wants him hovering over her every move and unearthing the painful past she’s trying to put behind her. Still, she’ll need him–and the help of his star grifter, Valkyrie–if she hopes to infiltrate the Jungle, the first ever crowdsourced crime syndicate, to rescue a group of kidnapped refugee children.
But as Talia and her elite team of thieves con their way into the heart of the Jungle, inching ever closer to syndicate boss the White Lion, she’ll run right up against the ragged edge of her family’s dark past. In this game of cat and mouse, it’s win . . . or die. And in times like that, it’s always good to have someone watching your back.
Y’all, I absolutely loved The Gryphon Heist, book one in the Talia Inger series, so I jumped at the chance to review book 2.
This book was sooo good! Seriously, I was glued to the screen (reading on my Kindle) as Mr. Hannibal took us on a journey from Russia, DC, and other locations. I had to know how it would all turn out. Not to mention his cast of secondary characters (aka the merry band of reformed criminals) are a hoot!
Seriously their snark and back-and-forth engagement left me chuckling and messaging a friend their witty comments.
But Mr. Hannibal also gets real and shares the importance of Christ and why people accept the gift He so richly offers. I tell you one scene in here relating to this was absolutely golden.
If you haven’t read Mr. Hannibal, don’t miss out. This series is a must read!

About the Author
James R. Hannibal is no stranger to secrets and adventure. A former stealth pilot from Houston, Texas, he has been shot at, locked up with surface-to-air missiles, and chased down a winding German road by an armed terrorist. He is a two-time Silver Falchion Award winner for his Section 13 mysteries for kids and a Thriller Award nominee for his Nick Baron covert ops series for adults. The author of The Gryphon Heist, James is a rare multisense synesthete, meaning all of his senses intersect. He sees and feels sounds and smells, and hears flashes of light. If he tells you the chocolate cake you offered smells blue and sticky, take it as a compliment.
