    This is such an incredible book I really could not put it down until I finished. It amazes me how much story Thomas Booker fit into a book that is on the relatively short side at an estimated 229 pages. The book is filled with tension, drama, angels, demons as well as bonds of love and friendship. You have a navy SEAL, Jeffrey, who has endured incredible traumas due to being a soldier. He is a good-hearted man who helps others but has no problem standing up for what he believes in, even if he lands in trouble in the process, and he frequently does. When tragedy strikes someone he cares for and Parvin the “Persian Woman” from the FBI gets involved he has to face his own prejudices against a group of people he despises. Booker keeps you guessing as to whether or not Jeffrey can team up with a woman associated with the group that killed his wife or if he is going to try to solve the mysterious and gruesome deaths, which take place.I enjoyed the emotional connections that Jeffrey had with the different characters throughout the story. I appreciated his determination to do what was right by those that mattered to him and even strangers. There is very little about this book, I did not like. I want to commend Booker on showing us that not all groups of people deemed as bad, or terrorists, abhor the true criminals just as much as the rest of the population.****SPOILER/WARNING***** I do want to state that if you have a weak stomach, cannot handle gore, or detailed descriptions of assorted violent crimes, you may not appreciate this book as much. I know some of the violence and descriptions, as needed as they are for the story, may be triggers for some readers.

    One quick disclaimer: there are typos in this book. If you're one of those people that can't stand it when editing is a little lacking, I wouldn't recommend this one because you'll find yourself shaking your head very frequently.However, if you can get past the occasional spelling mishap, then I highly recommend this novel. It's a wonderful, engrossing story about Jeffrey, a former Navy SEAL living in Texas who finds himself caught in the middle of a bioterrorism plot, and in a partnership with a woman he least expected to love: Parvin, a muslim FBI agent. There's murder, betrayal, and seduction galore as Jeffrey and Parvin hunt down the "Angel" - an Iranian terrorist hell-bent on completing his mission. Mixed in with the mystery and action is plenty of poignant social commentary on racism, religion and the importance of tolerance. Especially in the political climate we live in today - and with growing fears regarding radical religious groups and acts of terrorism - this is the kind of writing we need more of.Overall, Booker delivers a great read full of suspense , and writes complex, engaging characters that will connect with you instantly.

    Unlikely partners Ex-Navy SEAL Jeffrey Quinn and female Iranian FBI agent Parvin Sassani find themselves thrust together in the fight against a deadly bio-weapon about to be unleashed upon America.I thought The Persian Woman was a really good read. The plot was solid, the main characters fully developed and the pacing brisk. However, I'm not sure the book title or cover do it justice. Neither grabbed me and I'm sure if I saw this for sale in a book store, I'd sadly walk on by. That being said, the writing was excellent. Yes, there were several spelling and grammatical errors but not enough to spoil my enjoyment. I thought the story was both exciting and suspenseful. I very much hope to read more about Jeffrey Quinn in the future. Thanks to author Thomas Booker for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.https://barnseybooks.blogspot.co.uk/2...

    Angels and Demons... Jeffery wasn't sure if they really existed and walked among us, that was until he was caught up in an unthinkable situation. Years earlier, as a Navy Seal, Jeffery lead a rescue mission in the Sudan. His team was to find and rescue two little girls, the daughters of a Texas senator. They were successful in their mission, but Jeffery could never forget what he saw there. After returning home he found himself in trouble when he tried to protect a young man from an abusive cop. He landed himself in jail for several years, and was labeled a criminal. Then his nightmare only continued when his wife was killed by a jihadist who opened fire in a shopping mall. Due to his past, Jeffery was a hardened man, but that didn't mean he wasn't a good man. DeLong, theTexas Senator, came to Jeffery's aid and offered him a job after his stent in jail. Jeffery had formed a special bond with with DeLong's daughters since rescuing them years before, especially his oldest Robin. Although the youngest, Teal, seemed to be living a somewhat normal life, Robin never recovered from the ordeal. She had her hand cut off, and the torture she faced while in the hands of the jihadist was enough to leave her unable to live a normal life. So Jeffery took it upon himself to visit her weekly at the care home and to make sure she was taken care of and treated well. But it was right after a visit with Robin that Jeffery finds himself face to face with a county sheriff who informs him that Robin has killed herself. He is given Robin's diary and told to investigate what was written inside and how it was linked to his past. Jeffery then finds himself on an unthinkable journey to help DeLong's other children, stop a jihadist from killing millions of people, and dealing with a Persian FBI agent that he wishes he could ignore. When he finally gives in and they join together as a team, they are finally able to make headway in their mission to find the terrorist and bring him to a end. This Persian woman, who Jeffery was so against at first, may just turn out to be his very own angel.I loved The Persian Woman and highly recommend this book. Not only was it an easy read, but it was also an incredibly interesting story. Thomas Booker's writing style helps the story flow effortlessly and quickly The characters are well developed and there is quite an array of personalities. This isn't a romance, more of a drama or suspense, but I found myself unable to put it down. The plot is fast paced and kept me turning pages as fast as I could, wondering what would happen next. The subject of The Persian woman is quite relevant in our day and age. Not only do we deal with stereotypes, racism ,and corrupt justice systems and politicians, but we also see terrorist acts on a monthly, weekly, and sometimes daily basis. This is a book of fiction but truly hits on ideas and facts that we deal with in real life. It brings the book into context and make it so much more real and believable. It easily could be a story we pulled from the newspaper or saw on the news. There is language, physical violence, and some violent sexual context, so this isn't a book for a younger audience. I think it is best suited for a mature audience. Happy Reading!

    "The Persian Woman" by Thomas Booker was a very difficult book for me to read. There is a lot of military and government story lines that are difficult for me to follow. For me it was difficult to follow the characters and the story lines, but that could be because I'm not the target audience for the book. I honestly did not finish the book as I found it hard to get into. I did do some skipping around to try to pick up at interesting parts, but then I found some sections of violence that were too disturbing for me.I still give this book 3 stars as I am sure there are people this book will appeal to. It's not badly written, just not a book that I was able to read.I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Coming from a military background I love to read any and all military books I can get my hands on. I was genuinely surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. The plot was believable and flowed smoothly throughout the story. I actually read it in one setting (I literally couldn't put it down) which is highly unusual for me. It is quite graphic in parts so take warning if you have a weak stomach, personally I enjoy the realistic atmosphere it provides. Highly recommend!

    I always enjoy a good suspense novel. I was captured by the authors attention to creating a strong storyline that makes you want to binge read. We live in a world that is constantly at odds and war. Putting two strong characters together really helped to sell the likability or realism of the story. The ongoing world wars have devastated millions of people around the world. For Quinn, it’s affected him directly with the loss of his family during an attack. It’s a scar that aches even more when he tries to do the right thing and warn the FBI of impending doom. The daughters of a Senator that Quinn works for have also suffered through the heartache. But one of them doesn’t want to take the good road. It’s up to Quinn to work with an agent that he doesn’t want to be around. A woman who who has connections (even if it’s stereotypical) to his own past trauma. It’s interesting how they overcome so much to bring justice forward.For me this was an informative yet emotionally charged and suspenseful. I would love to see more books with these characters!

    Thomas Booker has delivered a page turner of a military/crime/action thriller. Jeffery Quinn is an ex-Navy SEAL with a rough history but with a fighter's heart. He has his demons to deal with which make him who he is. Tragic events in his life have caused him to hate certain groups. What is to happen when he is partnered with a FBI agent from that group? Will his hatred take over or will he face down his inner demons? Will this impede his ability to find the terrorists and save lives?I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that loves an incredibly written, well detailed, and well thought out story.... especially if you are mystery/thriller lover! This book has just the right amount of drama and romance. You won't want to put it down. Here's hoping there are more in a series to come...

    I loved this book. Maybe it is due to the fact that it hits a cross section like a Venn diagram of all things I find compelling in a novel of this caliber. Suspense, highly detailed tactical descriptions, Geo-political action, and throw in some romance to add to a fast paced and highly-addictive read. Right off the bat, I was hooked to Booker's ability to draw the audience in, right in the thick of things. the detailed descriptions of his Navy SEAL team along with the British SAS Team were vivid and intense. Even the imagery of Texas today felt genuine and honest, setting the stage up for Jeffrey, Parvin, and a host of entwined characters that all add to the intrigue and suspense in Jeffrey's new mission to stop a terrorist attack.Although an Elite Alpha operator, Jeffrey is presented as a relatable "everyday" man struggling to make peace with himself when the rest of the world seems to be in a state of perpetual war. His external mission along with his internal demons all come to the surface and merge successfully in "The Persian Woman". This becomes the true strength of this book. By creating a clash of cultures realigned for a common good, we are introduced to an array of themes of morality, loyalty, and redemption. I could not help but agree that this is a story that needs to be told for not only it's context but it's genuine desire to tell a story that holds universal truths about who we are as a community and who we view as the "enemy".

    A page turner from the beginning! I honestly could not put this one down and finished it all in one day. I am a fan of military thrillers and like that this one had a little bit (but not too much!) romance thrown in. I liked Quinn and felt that he was really well written. His past bumps up against his present and he has to overcome it not only for his own peace, but for the good of others. I think a series is in order...

    I give this one 4 stars simply because it was hard for me to get into at the beginning, it just started off a little slow and disjointed. The story picked up and the main character is a likeable guy, written with the exact attitude of many current and former military , especially task force and SF members! I enjoyed this book, but I would say the total package needs a little work. The cover is nondescript and the title uninteresting. Those things combined with the slow start make this one something most people would probably give up on before it gets to the good parts.

    Recommended for fans of military drama. This book is a taut geo-political thriller about an Elite Alpha operator, Jeffrey, who is likable even though he's an elite operative. He's seen some hard times like his wife being killed in a terorrist attack, and he's been through some serious struggles, like going to jail in order to protect someone from an abusive cop. He's just trying to get done what he has to do with as few casualties, in both his personal and professional life, as possible. With some romance in there as well, when Jeffrey meets "The Persian Woman," the book really gets exciting.His current situation is linked with the past, when the daughters of a politician he rescued from an elite mission in Sudan years before reaches out to him. The daughters are both mentally and physically wounded from the capture in Sudan, one more than the other. What this daughter reveals in her death leads him to uncover even more unexposed activities.

    The Persian Woman is an intriguing story with plenty of international drama and suspense. The main character is a likeable man; flawed, but honorable. His background and beliefs create much of the conflict in the story. Jeff Quinn is partnered with Parvin Sassani, an Iranian woman. Their job is to stop a potential terrorist attack. He is untrusting of the woman since she is Muslim and his wife was killed in a Jihadist attack years earlier. It takes some time for him to trust again, but eventually they work well together to finish their job. There is a good mix of political as well as sexual tension. I enjoyed the story and look forward to more offerings from Mr. Booker.

    I really liked reading this book! It starts with a Navy Seal mission, major attention grabber! The main character is very like-able. The author humanizes him so well, with all of his mistakes, which happen to be his best qualities. He is in his current predicament because of these traits. He is the type of person one would like as a friend, and not an enemy. Which the author makes quite clear in the writing. This was a fast paced story with some twist and I did not want to put this down. Definitely worth the price and the time spent, neither being very much. A very interesting read!

    I read this book from cover to cover in a single afternoon; I did not want to put it down.Former Navy Seal Jeffrey Quinn is a man with a jaded past but is an honest, thorough, trustworthy man. Despite his flaws, I found him immediately likable. He is a bit bitter since his wife was murdered in a mall by a jihadist, and he seems to carry that sour attitude with him in his every day interactions. After spending some time in prison, he is saved by a Texas Senator whose two daughters he saved years back from a kidnapping situation. He maintains close relationships with both young women, especially Robin. The story truly begins when a small town police officer comes to Quinn and shares Robin's dairy with him and requests that he take care of what is discussed within; he reluctantly agrees.This storyline is very thorough and will leave you hanging almost all the way throughout the story. While it may appear predictable from time to time, Booker's prose will leave you surprised time and time again. This is by far one of the best mystery novels I have read in a long time. You won't be disappointed.

    In The Persian Woman, ex-navy SEAL Jeffrey Quinn finds himself pulled back into action after a young woman commits suicide. Robin, the daughter of a powerful US politician, whom he had rescued years earlier from a madman’s compound, dies and leaves a strange message that gives Jeffrey reason to believe that the dangerous man is back and a threat once more. Although Jeffrey has begun to build a life after his military career and own personal tragedy, he now finds himself back in the position of trying to protect Robin’s family, while investigating if Robin’s allegations of are true. Jeffrey Quinn is a great center piece to the story, as he is a strong, confident, and likable hero.
