You must see your plan to shield her from us has
Jade Wilmerton runs a library for an intelligence outfit. It’s 1997
and Skosh, a shadowy ops guy in her organization, takes her as his
administrative assistant on a private flight to Lithuania. Jade
hopes for a little adventure and maybe something more from this
appealing man, but his irascible, profane and worried manner is
strictly business. "They’re dangerous," he tells her, without
explaining anything, least of all who 'they' may be. She is pretty
sure he himself is not all that safe, either.
While Skosh might be dangerous, the group of assassins he
introduces to Jade is certainly lethal. Charlemagne is the premier
freelance specialist team used by western governments for black
operations conducted without fingerprints. Each team member is
highly skilled in the business of death, but this time the odds
favor their target, an American millionaire who has been gathering
a small but significant fighting force in a forest near the Baltic
Information will be Charlemagne’s primary weapon in this op, and
their chosen delivery vehicle is a young Lithuanian partisan who
has noticed Jade.
Will Jade Wilmerton succeed in keeping the team’s hacker out of her
library’s computer? Will she survive long enough to have a chance
with Skosh? Or will even that elusive hope be complicated by the
operational needs of Charlemagne?
Quiet Move is the eighth novel in K.A. Bachus’s fast-paced
Charlemagne Files series chronicling the lives of a team of deadly
Cold War intelligence operatives over a span of three decades.

Fast paced espionage thriller with complex and conflicted
In this most
recent book of the Charlemagne Files, a series of linked but
stand-alone espionage novels, the characters are complex and
conflicted. I love that the short and provocative prologue arcs to
an ending placing the male lead character in an untenable position.
The ops team’s actions are fast-paced and full of threats and
emotional challenges. I recommend checking out the author’s
background on Amazon and her webpage, that provides authenticity to
her wonderful world-building for Spooks, Spies, and Assassination.
