Jake is tapped to facilitate the reconciliation between two estranged nations. This is not something he wants but finds himself heading the reconciliation program

The President is having a treaty signed with the Castro brothers in Miami, and he enlists Jake Sullivan (the District Attorney) to handle security coordination with all of the lettered organizations because of a past association. Jake is tapped to facilitate the reconciliation between two estranged nations. This is not something he wants but finds himself heading the reconciliation program. It wouldn't be an action adventure if all things proceeded well.

Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season (The Jake Sullivan Series Book 2). Chip Bell. I won't spoil you with the long answer of how Jake saves himself (since Bell has written two sequels already, it's no spoiler he does get away), but the short, non-spoilerish answer is that Bell has the various villains behave stupidly in precisely the improbable manner needed for Jake to have a chance of getting away and clearing.

It is the end of June and President Jordan Fletcher has just negotiated a historical treaty with Cuba, and its signing will be held at the end of October in Miami. Because of Fletcher s past relationship with him in the Benjamin Matthews matter, he has asked Jake Sullivan to coordinate the treaty signing ceremony. Just as Jake and his investigator and close friend, Mike Lang, begin their job, they receive the astounding news that Benjamin Matthews has died in prison of a heart attack, at the same time learning that an assassination plot has been hatched against the President and Raul and Fidel Castro. Working with a threat analysis expert from the Secret Service, Jonathan Clark, and Paula Cortez, a specialist in Cuban affairs from the FBI, who appears to be more than just a former colleague of Mike Lang, Jake sets about trying to diffuse the plot by discovering the identity of a mysterious assassin known only as The Agent , employed by an even more secret organization, The Birth of New Madrid. As the summer months move by with the assassin still on the loose, the tension builds at Jake s office, just as tension builds out on the open water as a very active hurricane season is underway. Worrying about Mother Nature and the plot at hand, Jake and his team finally come face to face with their mysterious assassin and soon come to realize he is only part of a much greater threat. Racing to save the treaty signing and the lives of the President and the Castro brothers, this second novel by Chip Bell heads to an explosive finish where Jake discovers the true nature of the danger they face and finds himself in one final battle a battle for his life and the lives of his family now that he realizes the ultimate truth the target all along was him.

Reading Chip Bell's work reminded me of former president Calvin Coolidge who was noted as a man of few words. Once, when someone told Coolidge that he bet he could get the President to say more than two words all evening, Coolidge replied "You lose." Similarly, Bell tells a very good story, but I just wish there had been a bit more of it.

"Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season" is Bell's second adventure involving attorney Jake Sullivan, who, in the first book in the series, wound up stopping a plot against the President of the United States. For his efforts, Jake became a Federal prosecutor in Miami and won the President's respect. Now, the United States is on the verge of a historic treaty with Cuba (author Bell deserves kudos for a premise that actually became real a short time later), and Federal agents receive word of a threat against the President and the Castro Brothers, who will be coming to Miami for the treaty signing. The President asks Jake and his chief investigator Mike Lang to head up the investigation.

"Hurricane Season" is a "Day of the Jackal" style thriller, as Jake and all the other intelligence agencies try to figure out who's behind the plot and how they are going to strike. The first question should be rather easy for readers familiar with this type of book to figure out, but the details of the plot are rather ingenious. The book is written in the familiar thriller style of a number of short chapters involving bits and pieces of action in a number of different locations with a number of characters whose connection with the main story line is intentionally kept unclear by the author. Quick cutting between characters in a series of short chapters is an effective technique to build suspense when done right, and Bell pulls it off nicely here. Eventually, he pulls all the little pieces together and shows how they fit into the plot.

The amount of story and number of characters in "Hurricane Season" could easily support a 300-400 page book, but Bell has instead written a very short novel, barely clocking in at 200 pages. This is one book that I wish had been longer, because it often reads more like a screenplay treatment than a novel. There's almost no space taken up by descriptive material or character interplay; instead every action and conversation serve almost exclusively to drive the story. Only once in the book does Bell take his time, and that occurs when he describes an evening Mike Lang spends with his girlfriend in Key West. Bell is obviously familiar with Key West, and in this section, he takes the time to immerse readers in the local color and the dialogue. It's the one part of "Hurricane Season" that really gives readers a feel for the locale and reads like the author is trying to reach out to readers. WIth the exception of this one scene, however, the characters get fairly short shrift and are pretty much generic good guys and bad guys.

Although I wish "Hurricane Season" had been longer, the book is still an entertaining and, not surprisingly, fast paced read. This is the type of book people will go through in one sitting. Bell has concocted a good plot with a villainous plan that's reasonably credible and, as you might guess, goes down to the wire.The action scenes are especially well written. Although "Hurrican Season" sometimes reads as if the story is being propelled by gale force winds, readers will enjoy going along for the ride.

Once again Jake Sullivan deals with his nemesis and triumphs, or does he, has he just put off another showdown.
Another entertaining action packed story.

Lots of hints and a clear understanding of who the good guys and who would come out ahead made this book not terribly suspenseful, but the engaging characters and easily followed action produces an engaging story that doesn't spend a lot of time develoing characters ( this is a series, after all) but also makes it a book that doesn't drag on at all. Setting is nicely described and some light notes add to the enjoyability.

This second novel in a series about Jake Sullivan has him managing overall security for a top level treaty signing in Miami, while he faces attempts by a madman to wreck havoc and mayhem. It is taut, fast paced and an exciting read. To really enjoy the story it is important to read "Come Monday" first.

Like t he series so far. One small matter, that of the term seal. When referring to the mammal it is lower case. When referring to Navy SEALS it is always caps because it is an acronym for Sea Air and Land.

Actually a good history lesson along with a terrific story. I love the friendship and the dialog of the two main characters. All of the Chip Bell books are worth reading but should be read in order of published to keep up with who the bad guys are. Quick reads and entertaining.
Great book can't put it down. I immediately went looking for the next in the series to read. No doubt I will read all of this author's works from now on.
