A Thrilling Novel of Intrigue and Espionage Jan. 9 2011
By Laura J. Schultz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The espionage/thriller novel C Street by Claudette Walker is a roller coaster ride of suspense, tension and excitement. It is next to impossible to categorize C Street as merely a thriller, as it contains a myriad of components that demonstrates the author's ability to transcend genres. Ms. Walker has an uncanny ability to transport the reader into a foreign world where power, wealth and corruption reign supreme. Some have dreamed of wielding this kind of ultimate world power, but few have enough insight to depict this arena in all its magnificence, allure and yes--its concomitant dangers.

But who are the mysterious characters of C Street and what mechanisms allow them to wield such omnipotent power? With hundreds of millions of dollars at their fingertips and modern secret weapons at their disposal, reminiscent of but more sophisticated than James Bond, these undercover operation teams are able to penetrate the veneer of normalcy in many countries of the world. Disguised as wealthy but often ordinary looking professionals, they travel easily and lithely across every continent without arousing suspicion.
The reader learns very quickly to tune out any distractions while reading C Street, unless one is willing to endure the consequences as a result of one moment of inattention. After the first few pages, it was literally impossible for this reader to think of any mundane chores without the overwhelming desire to return to one of the exotic locales or intriguing characters in C Street. Each character, no matter how peripheral they appear to be at first, is brilliantly woven into this web of deceit and treachery with seamless ease. The reader cannot wait for the next chapter that ultimately culminates in a dramatic unveiling of the entire mystery. However, I advise potential readers of C Street to never get too comfortable with any premature attempt to assess who did what to whom and how--lest one is willing to endure the future "shock and awe" as a result of one glance away from this addictive novel.

The main character and keeper of secrets left to her by her loving husband, Solomon Rosenberg (and an assassin for the CIA), Jacqueline Rose is sultry and sassy with the emotional and physical strength of many men. Expertly trained and powerful men often incorrectly assume there must be a weakness or crack in her armor. Both she and her daughter, Marie, are worthy adversaries for even the most proficient CIA, FBI or military professional. In tandem they are unbeatable, as they outwit the best and brightest on the world stage with a delightful twist in every well-developed scheme and plot. Both Marie and Jacqueline serve as human weapons of mass destruction as they achieve their ultimate goal of exposing the nefarious mission by the secret members of C Street.

Simply stated, C Street by Claudette Walker is an unforgettable novel. It is a must read for anyone who enjoys intrigue, enigmas and haunting memories of a fulfilling thriller.

Exotic, Erotic Thriller Had Me Blushing 50 Shades of Red July 30 2012
By Pj Schott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"C Street" is such a powerful, heart-pounding thriller, it now resides on the same shelf as Gerald A. Browne, Nelson deMille & William Diehl. It was filled with so much searing sensuality, my mother would have had it on the top shelf where the kids weren't supposed to be able to reach it.

With a background in investigative journalism I learned that it's not easy to get to the heart of the matter ... and even harder to garner the courage to speak the truth. Claudette Walker has done both ... and put "The Way the World Works" in the context of a powerful, glamorous, fast-paced thriller.

My favorite part of reading a thriller is taking a trip to exotic locales, and C Street did not disappoint. Walker's heroine takes us on a breathtaking journey from Washington DC, Geneva, London, Manhattan, Costa Rica and Israel. Add to that mix believable, unforgettable characters and just enough description to make the reader feel at home in each and every scene.

Against a background of unimaginable wealth, power, and intrigue we learn more than we ever wanted to know about the inner workings of intelligence agencies and government, where the abuse of power often has violent global repercussions. However, no one she encounters is any match for the wits of the worldly, intelligent, and passionate Jacqueline Rose.

There had better be a sequel to this one. The surprise ending left me breathless with anticipation. KUDOS to this talented and powerful author!

C Street March 10 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Interstingly written. Compelling reading. Challenges thinking about the control of the CIA. Is this real National Security or simply National Control of unthinking Americans?
