Maloney, and Kensington Books for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review. After a harrowing run with Dan Morgan, Leo J. Maloney turns to the next generation of gritty agents tasked with helping keep the world safe. Alex Morgan is set to step out of her father’s shadow in Angle of Attack, her first full-length novel. While she knows the ins and outs of Zeta Group, Alex could not have prepared for this mission or those lurking in the background that will stop at nothing to bring her down. A great piece for fans of the Dan Morgan series, as well as readers who love a female protagonist who can hold her own with aplomb. While Alex Morgan prepares for her first full mission within Zeta Group, she is shocked to see her father finally taking some time off. It’s been years since Dan Morgan could play the role of public citizen and enjoy things without a pretence of being on guard. Alex is being sent to Monaco to look into whispers of something monumental taking place during the Grand Prix event there. Things begin with an explosive start as the private jet on which she is travelling watches its hanger explode moments after taxiing. Zeta Group is put on the defensive, but Alex refuses to back down, citing the need to move ahead with the mission. Meanwhile, two other agents answer a call to a potential situation in Malaysia, only to discover that someone’s neutralised the terror group and left the bodies for Zeta Group to find. Could there be a turf war taking place, one in which a new group is seeking to distract Zeta before handling the situation, wasting valuable time? After intel sends Alex Morgan to the vaults of the grand casino in Monaco, she discovers the bomb has been diffused, but its radioactive material is missing. This could be Ares Group at work again, luring Alex into the trap and then showing that her time and efforts are wasted, keeping her from the real target. When news that there is something planned at the next Grand Prix event in Montreal, Alex is there, again acting in a quasi-undercover capacity. She’s ready to strike, though it does not help that she has no idea who or what she’s trying to neutralise. This could be a type of danger no amount of stories heard on Dan’s knee could help prevent. With so many people at risk, there is no time to play a game of cat and mouse with Ares, or is there? I have always enjoyed the work of Leo J. Maloney, as it not only offers up something full of action, but also keeps the characters working in a somewhat relatable environs. Having spent time in both Monaco and Montreal, I could see things as they progressed, while also being completely drawn in by everything that’s taking place. Alex Morgan does a wonderful job as protagonist in this piece, easily filling the shoes her father left out. She’s gritty and determined, without being reckless. Alex knows what is expected of her and yet she is one who will bend things a little if it helps her make needed progress. Fans of the Dan Morgan series will have seen some of her backstory emerge, though it is not discussed in any detail here, forcing new readers to piece things together on the fly. Alex keeps herself busy and develops effectively throughout the story, but has left much of herself open for further growth, so long as Maloney keeps the series going for a time. The use of strong supporting characters is key to the success of a novel. While there are a number of names and faces from the elder Morgan adventures, those who make their first appearance here work well to create a foundation that allows Alex Morgan to shine. The antagonism is prevalent throughout, though it is not as blatant, forcing the reader to sense that evil though a number of characters in passing. This is a great technique that keeps things from diverting from Alex Morgan’s growth. The story was quite straightforward and kept the reader engaged. Maloney uses some unique perspectives and situations to help differentiate from some of the earlier novels, while never lessening the sense of action. There’s a mix of chapter lengths to set the scene and develop the narrative, as needed in this fast-paced book. Never a lull in the action, which permits the story to propel itself forward until the very end, but even at that point, there are some unresolved moments. I am eager to see how Alex Morgan grows in a lead character role, having sat in the shadows throughout her formative years. Kudos, Mr. Maloney, for another winning story. I am eager to see what you have in store for your next Morgan protagonist. Love/hate the review?

    Leo Mahoney's latest in the Alex Morgan series, Angle of Attack (Lyrical Press 2021) starts with all the action you can handle as Alex Morgan and her partner Lily Randall rescue a kidnapped American scientist from the depths of Iran. After this successful mission, Alex is supposed to get a break but the next job can’t wait. This one takes her undercover as the friend of a girlfriend (her partner, Lily) who herself is the girlfriend of billionaire Scott Renard whose car is entered in the races.

They will follow the tour around the world to catch a terrorist and a missing supply of weapons-grade plutonium. Alex and Lily are tough, talented, beautiful, and often underestimated. Where some might worry when faced with a hopeless battle, Alex and Lily figure out to how to win. I like strong females who don't melt in the face of danger. I’ve found it in this Mahoney series.

    I got this Angle of Attack by Leo J. Maloney a while back. I was not sure about a series with Alex Morgan a the main character. Usually Maloney writes about her father who works for the same organisation. This is one great book it is almost better than the original series but it works great as a complement. I actually think I like it when you get spin off series. I have to thank #Netgalley and #KensingtonBooks for letting me read this one.

    Was looking forward to a kick ass female protag. I'll never know it this fills the bill. The dialogue was so bad I gave up after two chapters. Was looking forward to a kick ass female protag. I'll never know it this fills the bill. The dialogue was so bad I gave up after two chapters.

    I have been a big fan of the Dan Morgan series, but for some reason the last few books have not exactly been as good as the many beforehand. When I realized that Leo Maloney was doing a spinoff of the series, with Alex Morgan being the main character, I was interested. So - Alex is now officially a grown up and officially deemed as an "agent" of Zeta. I have to say that I REALLY enjoyed everything about this book.

When I realized that Leo Maloney was doing a spinoff of the series, with Alex Morgan being the main character, I was interested. So - Alex is now officially a grown up and officially deemed as an "agent" of Zeta. I have to say that I REALLY enjoyed everything about this book. The plot was interesting, the characters were rich and fairly well developed and the action was enough to keep the reader (that would be me) on our toes. The great thing about spin offs is that even though this is only the first book in the series, the world has already been built and we are already familiar with both the setting (Zeta Group) and the people (Lily, Alex, and the team at Zeta). Because most of that is already established, it was a piece of cake to drop the reader in and let things take off from there. Does that mean that this book cannot be read as a stand alone if someone hasn't already read any of the Dan Morgan books? I don't think so. There is enough back information to set the stage for new readers - even if not all of the necessary info can be imparted, enough of the important stuff is. In this book, Alex and Lily team up and we see Alex at the front of all kinds of issues, some business related, some personal. This is the first time that I can remember where her dad is NOT part of the drama. She is on her own and it is very obvious that she can hold her own. Does she make any mistakes? Of course. Just like any of us, she's human and not a super hero, but she is as prepared as she can be, and as usual, those Morgan instincts are right much more than they are wrong. Definitely a win and I'm excited to be looking forward to more from Zeta, either with Dan or Alex at the helm. I wanted to say thank you to NetGalley for providing me this ARC. All opinions are entirely my own.

    My husband introduced me to the Dan Morgan books and I have loved the last few, so I was all in when I found out there was a spin-off series about Dan’s daughter, Alex, whom I have enjoyed as a supporting character.

Alex is clearly a Morgan, but she is also her own person. It’s tremendous fun to see her navigate the world of international car racing and take on assassins and spies. There’s even a great twist on the high-stakes casino face-off. Her remarkable story makes me want to be a twentysomething spy myself.

    A new hero named Morgan! I have read all of the Dan Morgan books, and I definitely am a fan. I also thought Alex Morgan was turning into a very interesting character when she got a major sub-plot in THREAT LEVEL ALPHA. I can now honestly say that the first Alex Morgan book really delivers. It follows action from Iran, to Monaco, to North America and has the action and excitement that we've come to expect from a Leo Maloney thriller. It also has some surprises, including a look inside the world of A new hero named Morgan! I have read all of the Dan Morgan books, and I definitely am a fan.

    Thank you to author Leo J. Maloney for this FREE Kindle copy of the upcoming Angle of Attack. And thanks to Goodreads for hosting the opportunity. I really liked it. Well done. Great pace, characters, visuals, etc. Involving from start to finish, and some questions laid out at the end to segue into book two for some answers. Perhaps.

    I love this author and this is the first of a spin-off series with the daughter of Dan Morgan (Alex). Taking g place at Formula 1 races in France and Canada, it’s fast-paced and drives to a surprise ending - book number two had better be on the way!
