A Matter of Payback (The Michael Wolfe Saga Book 3) is the latest in the series by J.C. Fields. He certainly does not disappoint his readers. With well-developed characters, and an action-packed and fast-paced plot, it is an extremely suspenseful read. The author's use of multiple plot twists, foreshadowing, red herrings, and other literary devices is highly effective, so much so that it is difficult not to finish reading the book in one sitting. This is a story of revenge and reprisal set in the dangerous and surreal world of international espionage. A Matter of Payback has a strong main character and an equally strong villain and this makes the story doubly interesting as there is always the element of danger as well as apprehension as to how things will turn out in the end. Highly recommended! Maria Victoria Beltran for Readers' Favorite
