Gun Kiss by Khaled Talib - Guest Blogger Book Review

A stolen piece of history, an abducted actress and international intrigue…

When the Deringer pistol that shot Abraham Lincoln is stolen and ends up in the hands of a Russian military general, covert agent Blake Deco is tasked by the FBI to head to the Balkans to recover the historical weapon. Meanwhile, the United States media is abuzz with news of the mysterious disappearance of Hollywood movie star, Goldie St. Helen.

After Blake’s return from overseas, he receives a tip from a Mexican friend that a drug lord, obsessed with the beautiful actress, is holding her captive in Tijuana. With the help of a reluctant army friend, Blake mounts a daring rescue. What he doesn’t expect is to have feelings for Goldie—or that a killer is hunting them.

Jennifer's Review
It’s a very good book. I really enjoyed reading it.
It’s about a guy named Blake who is hired to retrieve a stolen gun that was used to kill a president. He does retrieve it, then is again hired to rescue an actress from a drug lord named Dai Lo. He and a friend named Jack go hunting for the actress and rescue her. That pisses off the drug lord who, in turn, tries to get the actress back and does anything he can.
Does he succeed? What bad things does he do to get her back? What happens to Blake and Jack? Do they succeed in keeping her from being taken back?
This book is so cool it should be made into a movie.
I give it 5 stars.
