The Gryphon Heist

By James R. Hannibal


Talia Inger is a rookie CIA case officer assigned not to the Moscow desk as she had hoped but to the forgotten backwaters of Eastern Europe--a department only known as "Other." When she is tasked with helping a young, charming Moldovan executive secure his designs for a revolutionary defense technology, she figures she'll be back in DC within a few days. But that's before she knows where the designs are stored--and who's after them. With her shady civilian partner, Adam Tyler, Talia takes a deep dive into a world where only criminal minds and unlikely strategies will keep the Gryphon, a high-altitude data vault, hovering in the mesosphere.

Even Tyler is more than he seems, and Talia begins to wonder: Is he helping her? Or using her access to CIA resources to pull off an epic heist for his own dark purposes?

Book Takeaway:

Primary: Hanging on to bitterness hurts. True healing begins when we open our hearts to forgiving.

Secondary: True morality comes from God, the Author of morality, and not from a human perspective of "the greater good."

Why the author wrote this book:

In the planning stages this story began as an exploration of morality in espionage, set within a high-octane, high-flying spy adventure. However, as Talia's character developed, she made it clear this needed to become a story about the call to forgive.
