    Nemesis Manifesto was pretty good

    I usually don't read this type of book, though I have read a few on occasion and have enjoyed them mostly. This book is toted as the first in a new series about Evan Ryder but it feels like a middle book because there are many references to past histories between characters like Evan and Ben or Evan and Lyudmilla. It made for some very confusing parts in the beginning especially because it pulled me from the main story I was reading about Evan hunting down Nemesis on the order of Benjamin Butler. I wanted to know more about the mysterious Lyudmilla. The Russian parts with the GRU and SVR were interesting and it was kinda cool how it all tied in by the end between the various factions in Russia and the US. Though it definitely left open a big bombshell, probably for the next book in the series. I think it was a pretty good political thriller and I do not regret reading it.

    Not bad but not my genre

    First off, I will say that I like how the main character, Evan Ryder is a woman agent. And she is super tough and able to handle all that trouble that comes her way when she goes looking for it. So many of these political thriller type books have the secret agent be a guy. It was nice to have it mixed up a little. There is a lot of action and quite the body count, plus lots of double agents and a secret organization with a kill list and a plan to disrupt the modern world. I got a little confused with all the acronyms at times and that took a bit of time out of reading to figure out what they all meant. Though I still liked most of the story. I probably would not read more books in the series, though I might google the summaries because I want to find out more about the story of Lyudmilla and Evan.

    Evan Ryder is unstoppable!

    Evan Ryder is one mean killing machine! She sure racks up the body count in this first book of a series that she is the star in. Though some of the others, from Brenda to Boyko can hold their own pretty well. The action parts of this book were pretty easy to understand but some of the political stuff was a bit convoluted and I think there were too many double and triple agents. It did not help that this book felt like it was from the middle of a series instead of being the first book. Maybe some of the characters came from a previous series? I would not mind reading more in this series as this first one turned out to be a pretty quick and exciting read and I want to learn more about this unstoppable agent by the name of Evan Ryder!

    Close to a 4

    Evan Ryder, a field agent in a black ops shop, works deep within the Department of Defense. Her spymaster boss receives a list with six names of agents investigating a mysterious organization known as Nemesis. Eric Van Lustbader has been writing books for a long time on a number of different genres. He had taken over the Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne series and the Nemesis Manifesto is the first of a new series that he is introducing. To be honest, I was not captured by the book but I believe it had nothing to do with Van Lustbaders writing style or Evan Ryder as a lead character. The plot and story line just did not appeal to me. I have had it up to my eyebrows on this “fake news’ and while it is certainly current I kind of staggered through this book. That being said, I did like the main characters that are likely to recur in subsequent books so I will certainly give this series another shot to catch my attention. A solid 3.75 on my scale based on future potential.

    A non-stop action filled ride

    The Nemesis Manifesto is an cleverly written espionage/political thriller involving all-too-real politicians and situations. You can guess who the unnamed politicians are just by the descriptions. It appears to be a stand-alone or the beginning of a series. I really liked the character of Evan Ryder who is a lone wolf agent with the DOD. She is smart, tough, well-trained but not a robot. She is trying to solve the mystery of the gruesome deaths of some fellow agents. The story was action-filled and complex with many twists and turns. There were double and triple agents and suppressed memories. It was very difficult to guess the surprises ahead of time. This book reads like an action movie and I could really picture it as a film. Although, not historically one of my go-to genres, I will seek out more books by this author.
