This is what the news media is saying. But what exactly is happening behind closed doors?
The Beijing Memorandum takes reader on a thrill ride from the heavily guarded Zhongnanhai compound in Beijing to the FBI Headquarters in the Nation's Capital to the White House's Situation Room to the Palacio Nacional in Mexico City.
Former Marine Gunnery Sergeant Moses Remington knew terror firsthand. He saw it during his combat deployments in Fallujah, Iraq and in the Helmand Province, Afghanistan. He saw it again in Mexico when he stumbled across China’s secret plan.
Now, he must dodge Chinese assassins and an FBI dragnet to save Consulate General Gao Quan and his family from certain execution to disclose China’s secret plans to the world.
At the center of it all is Moses Remington, a former Marine Gunnery Sergeant who has lived through horrific wars. But once back home, he has a different fight. That of his family. His wife is tired of being left alone most of the time and wants out, and Moses now fears losing his daughters too. Then he gets an assignment in Mexico and discovers China's secret plan, the Beijing memorandum.
The novel for the most part is fast-paced and it kept my interest throughout mainly because of the main character. At 538 pages it's a thick book and I could have done without the sex scenes, excessive details and the bad language (plenty of f-bombs and religious expletives). The Chinese president is portrayed as a narcissist psychopath and he is quite scary. I tried to skim through some of these scenes because I am sensitive to violence. I like thrillers but military thrillers are not my favorite. However, it's clear that the author's own experience as an army reserve officer make this story realistic with scenes that depict vivid military action that brings the story to life.
Fans of Tom Clancy and Lee Child will enjoy this latest installment from JB Morris. The cover doesn't do the book justice, but the writing is excellent.
