Tom Savage s series about a middle aged spy team, Jeff and Nora Baron, has been well received The Devil and the Deep Blue Spy, a clever takeoff of a popular expression used in many musical and novelistic themes, takes them on an all expense paid Caribbean cruise, something I suppose is paid for by the ever generous American taxpayer I am pleased to report that, aside from some bumps and bruises, the trip was enjoyed, if not particularly restful.It s understood that Jeff is the head honcho of Tom Savage s series about a middle aged spy team, Jeff and Nora Baron, has been well received The Devil and the Deep Blue Spy, a clever takeoff of a popular expression used in many musical and novelistic themes, takes them on an all expense paid Caribbean cruise, something I suppose is paid for by the ever generous American taxpayer I am pleased to report that, aside from some bumps and bruises, the trip was enjoyed, if not particularly restful.It s understood that Jeff is the head honcho of the duo, the most influential and biggest wage earner, but Nora does okay in her minor role, although she s the biggest player in this story Their task on the voyage is to observe and report on the actions of a fellow passenger, Claude, and his strange wife, Carmen It s a snap assignment until the couple is forced to split up, Jeff following Claude and Nora shadowing Carmen, supposedly the easier task Jeff fades into the shadows of the story and Nora takes all the lumps, as Carmen becomes a most formidable adversary with secrets and clout that threaten the safety of the rather amateurish Nora.The clumsy surveillance of her adversary by Nora was so awkward as to be almost silly Days of constant tailing with many sidewalk strolls, constant meals together in tiny cafes although still in secret , meetings in parks behind sunglasses, and everyday sequestering on a small cruise ship, never alerted Carmen to the fact that someone was watching her Even an assassination attempt that Nora thwarted never uncovered her hound dog role Or so we were led to believe But that s the rest of the story I won t go into.Savage is a good writer who manages to keep things complicated but decipherable His sense of location is vivid and the steamy heat and heavy rain are sensed against the reader s skin, something I appreciate in my reading His dialogue is sensible and realistic All in all, his story resonates and is enjoyable I recommend this book as a good, entertaining read I enjoy this series featuring Nora Barron written by Tom Savage They are quick reads and

thriller as described The characters are well developed and the settings are wonderful The actual story was good and for a light read it also has some pretty heavy parts I would definitely recommend this book to those who enjoy thrillers but not gory heavy kind I do wish I had started with the first in this series I think the history and development of them as a couple would have been fun The Devil and the Deep Blue Spy is Tom Savage s fourth novel in the Nora Baron Thriller series Tied up in a storage shed on a tropical island, Nora mentally reviews how it was she had arrived at this

began as agency director Hamilton Green approached Nora and her husband, Jeff, to take on a mission together posing as a couple on a second honeymoon cruise They were to watch Claude and Carmen Lamont Claude was suspected of supporting the terrorist known as Diablo Diablo was on the most wanted list yet the only pictures the agency had were sketches, the most detailed one having been drawn be a woman thought to have been one of his victims.After Nora thwarted an attempt on Carmen s life, she began focusing her efforts on Carmen and her safety This results in Nora and Jeff dividing up, each watching one of the couple Unfortunately, it doesn t appear that Nora is the only one doing the watching when she begins working with junior agent Ellie Singer Was it luck that they were able to avoid their watcher, or was it part of the plot for the set up meeting with Diablo This is an exciting adventure that places Nora and Jeff together on a mission for the first time However, it is Nora who stumbles into the devil s lair With a cast of interesting characters, a sultry tropical setting, and a most unexpected hero, this novel definitely lives up to its predecessors in the series I did enjoy this book and I do recommend it Thanks to Netgalley and Random House for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.3.5 stars rounded up I loved Tom Savage s books in the 90 s Valentine and Scavenger were awesome He didn t publish anything for years and then returned a few years ago, with this Nora Baron series I picked up the first one and thought it was okay but didn t have any desire to carry on with the series I requested this one because I saw that it was taking place in the Caribbean, specifically Martinique Thanks to Netgalley and Random House for providing an ARC in

with this Nora Baron series I picked up the first one and thought it was okay but didn t have any desire to carry on with the series I requested this one because I saw that it was taking place in the Caribbean, specifically Martinique which I have been actively researching for a trip I thought his descriptions of the islands were great and you can tell he has spent time in these places and that authenticity adds to my enjoyment of the book As for the story, it was just okay for me Nora is an actress and her husband Jeff is in the CIA They are needed on a cruise ship to follow a rich French business man who is suspected of moving a lot of money offshore, because they suspect he will be meeting with an associate and this will help them understand where he is moving the money It all started out pretty well but even though it was a short book and a pretty quick read, for some reason it started to drag for me toward the end when they were on the small island off of Martinique Also, I thought they had an awful lot of good luck at the end and it didn t seem that realistic to me This probably would have been a 3 if not for the Martinique setting It is a treat to read a mystery set in the Caribbean since there are so few out there I may pick up the previous Nora Baron novel where she has a job in Venice because at least I know I will enjoy the scenery The Devil and the Deep Blue Spy eBook was published in 2019 and was written by Tom Savage Mr Savage has published 12 novels This is the fourth in his Nora Baron thriller series I received an ARC of this novel through in return

cruise and keep an eye on Lamont Lamont is thought to be funneling large sums of money to terrorists The CIA thinks he will be making contact with someone on the cruise and the Barons are there to find out who I thoroughly enjoyed the 5.5 hours I spent reading this 203 page mystery thriller This is not an action filled thriller, butof a mystery The plot takes a few twists and turns to end up in a different place than you first might expect I have now read three of the four The Woman Who Knew Too Much The Spy Who Never Was earlier Nora Baron novels and have enjoyed them all If you like a good mystery thriller without a lot of violence, then you will enjoy these novels I give this novel a 4.4 rounded down to a 4 out of 5.Further book reviews I have written can be accessed at I keep reading

peaked the interest of the government agency Along the way, Nora finds herself separated from her husband and confronted by an international terrorist appropriately named, Diablo Nora is on her own with only her wiles to outsmart the devil himself while her partner is on the cruise ship in the deep, blue sea This story is a bit silly and unrealistic, but also fast paced It does have charming characters and lush descriptions of the environment, but sadly, in my case, it just wasn t enough and couldn t keep my attention For others it may very well provide an easy crime story for those who enjoy the thrill, but prefer their mysteries less graphic and dark, but for me, I found it less engaging than I d like A typical middle aged couple on a first class Caribbean cruise That s what the CIA needs for its latest mission, and husband and wife agents Jeff and Nora Baron leap at the chance All they have to do is observe and report on fellow passenger Claude Lamont a shady French businessman who s attracted the Company s interest and his mysterious wife, Carmen It s an easy assignment until a shopping trip at a port of call turns deadly, and Nora and her husband are forced to split up After Carmen abruptly disembarks, Nora follows her to Martinique while Jeff remains on board with Claude But the beautiful French island holds a shocking secret One American agent has already vanished from the area, and Nora soon learns why A shadowy international terrorist known only as Diablo has come to the islands for a sinister purpose With Jeff out of contact, Nora investigates on her own But Diablo is waiting for her, and now Nora Baron is trapped between the Devil and the deep blue sea
