Goodbye Paris by Mike Bond – Special Forces veteran Pono Hawkins races from a Tahiti surfing competition to France when he learns that a terrorist he’d thought was dead, Mustafa al-Boudienne, may have a backpack nuclear weapon and plans to destroy Paris. Pono was once Mustafa’s prisoner and is now the only one left alive to identify him.
Joining forces with former allies from US, French, and Russian intelligence, and with an intrepid and brilliant French agent, Anne Ronsard, with whom he soon falls in love, Pono sets out against impossible odds to catch and kill Mustafa and his terrorist cell before they can destroy the most beautiful city on Earth.

Review of Goodbye Paris
Goodbye Paris is the third book in the Pono Hawkins series by Mike Bond. An action thriller with twists and turns around every corner. I found it hard to get into the story with the reference to the destruction of Notre Dame since that was a fairly recent occurrence and numerous references to terrorists. Goodeye Paris was a hard book for me to finish. ** I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
