    • The third in the Kyle Achilles series, Falling Stars provides the same explosive punch as its predecessors It s not necessary to have read the earlier novels, but it might help.Tigner once again focuses his story around a technological innovation used for nefarious ends In this case, it is kidnapping via drone And once again Achilles is in pursuit of Ivan the Ghost Teamed up with a former French CIA agent, Achilles finds himself hunted by the FBI and CIA, while trying to get one step ahead of th [...]

    • Will Achilles Ever Get One Step Ahead Of Ivan Ivan has already outwitted Achilles once, causing him to lose his job Now, Ivan is back and determined to get wealthy beyond belief before he retires forever He has hatched an ingenious plan to use Raven, a scaled up quadcopter capable of carrying 250 pounds, to wage his final quest to reach his goal As Ivan s diabolical plan evolves, he refuses to disclose what comes next to his faithful partners in crime Achilles, too, will never be able to stop Iv [...]


    • The best book to date by Tim Tigner The story gave me pause because it was so diabolically believable The characters came alive for me on the pages as I read warts and all which resulted in a few chuckles and even a laugh out loud session at my end with one of the scenarios Tim described Like a certain commercial about not being able to eat just one great tasting potato chip, I ll bet you can t put the book down after reading one chapter Tim packs a lot of great material into each chapter and de [...]


    • Really love his books Figuring it out is half the fun After finishing Falling Stars, there is an Author s note afterwards where Tim Tigner lets his fans know that there is an alternate ending, should we care to read it I was VERY surprised when I emailed him, as per his instructions, that he not only sent me the alternate ending, but responded personally to my email I know that we are all so very busy in this day and age and so it meant the world to me that there are still authors out there that [...]


    • FALLING STARS Kyle Achilles 3 Well, when I saw the book set 1 3 coming out, I realized that I had gotten busy and had not provided a review when I finished this book months ago But Tim Tigner will certainly not disappoint any reader with book 3 of the Kyle Achilles series And he has been uniquely creative in his utilization of drones to terrorize INDIVIDUAL citizens The plots moved very quickly, and is certainly hard to predict And Tigner is definitely refining his writing skills, with Falling S [...]


    • Five Star SpiesAchilles is again on the run in Falling Stars, teaming up in book 3 with his former CIA co worker, Jo Montfort They re forced into matching wits against the diabolical Ivan the ghost as he wreaks international KR havoc and has the U S in his sights Achilles thinks he s finally gotten a step ahead of Ivan s scheme until he discovers that Ivan is holding Katya hostage in an unknown location This story has enough twists and turns to keep you flipping pages and trying to keep up Make [...]


    • Falling Stars is the third novel in the the Kyle Achilles series by Tim Tigner The book also follows the main big bad introduced in a prequel novella Chasing Ivan in the series, which I think can still be obtained free from the author s website and is well worth obtaining I ve read the previous entries and been suitably impressed, and I actually think this surpasses those previous books On one level the book is a beach read, page turner thriller and succeeds admirably in that vein but the author [...]


    • I am a big Tim Tigner fan and I especially like his Kyle Achilles series I found Falling Stars to be the author s best yet in the series I was so happy to see that Achilles has been reconnected with Josephine Monfort, a colleague from his past I am a fan of Jo because she is a strong and believable female character Jo and Achilles have been brought back together due to Ivan the Ghost creating trouble again for the two of them and the rest of the world This time Ivan has come up with a scheme to [...]


    • Falling Stars in another superb entry in the Kyle Achilles series Tigner has a great handle on his characters and really brings them to life in each of his novels This one stands out by bringing back the villain and his longtime friend cohort from the Chasing Ivan novella Both of those characters were worth a re visit And Ivan has some new employees as well that are intriguing in their own right an engineer and a Russian fighter pilot Both are given a bit of back story enough that I wouldn t min [...]


    • So thrilled to discover such a talented writer, who is new to me.I read books one and two in the Kyle Achilles series without a break, they were that engrossing.Mr Tigner is not a formulaic writer, that became clear in the second book Unlike some other writers who might think, Hey This worked for me last time So, I ll do it again Not so for Tim Higher Original, original, every time This time Kyle has upped his gamesmanship, and feels competent to beat the Ghost He has failed before, twice, but l [...]


    • Falling Stars is the third book in the Kyle Achilles series This book can be read as a standalone but it makes sense if you have read Chasing Ivan, Pushing Brilliance, and The Lies of Spies for the background of these characters There is a lot of violence.The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I m not going to repeat that info here The book has well developed characters There are a lot of twists and turns in the storyline that keep you guessing what will be revealed next The actio [...]


    • Excellent, exciting read He outdid himself again.I ve read each of Tim s books knowing that not only will I learn a whole bunch of new, fascinating technology related stuff, but I will not be able to guess the outcome no matter how much I try to out think him This latest book is very fast paced, and offers many surprises Perhaps the only non surprise in the entire book is the very end And now you will have to read the book yourself to decide if you agree In any case, you won t be sorry and this [...]


    • Falling StarsI feel like I don t even have to say much about this book Every Tim Tigner book is a winner His talent knows no bounds This book did keep you guessing at what the psychopathic antagonist would do He kept twisting and turning his plans even with his own team You just never knew what was coming It let the excitement build And, of course, Achilles, had his own agenda This was a terrific read I would recommend it to anyone who loves thrillers.


    • If you like action, Falling Stars does not disappoint Action packed from the first page, Falling Stars does not disappoint in that regard The plot may seem a little far fetched and the characters bigger than life, but it may very likely be vision of the future with drones, robotics and AI becoming commonplace Overall, if you are looking for a fast paced action thriller, definitely a good read.


    • Tim Tigner is one of my favorite authors His writing style is so much fun to read His books are always real page turners and I stay up way too late to see what happens next I enjoy the Kyle Achilles books book 2 was still my favorite of the three, but this is a great adventure If you like David Baldacci and Vince Flynn, you will like Tim Tigner.
