Item description for Strike Zone Paipa by Trevino...
A seemingly harmless college professor, Carlos Benaventi, is, in fact, an undercover operative for the CIA, involved in the intrigue of international espionage and daring clandestine operations. When his friend and colleague, Jim Torres, is taken hostage by radical Colombian terrorists from the Revolutionaries Pro-Liberation of Colombia (RPC), Benaventi relies on all his expertise and training to mount a risky rescue operation to recover one of his own. But his efforts are not entirely without surprises. Locked into a fast-paced search and destroy mission, Benaventi organizes an elite strike force to destroy the enemy. But deep in the steamy South American jungle, Carlos comes face to face with a new and even deadlier peril----Sinbarba, or the Beardless One. A powerful and ruthless guerrilla leader, Sinbarba is the most charismatic figure on the revolutionary front since Che Guevara.

Great CIA Story! Jul 7, 2003
Carlos is an exciting and likeable protagonist who, as a result of the author being a former CIA agent, has interesting, dangerous adventures that seem authentic and therefore are appealing and exciting to read about. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a realistic adventure story.
Exciting, Action Packed First Novel Jul 7, 2003
This story made me want to read more about the main character Carlos. I hope the author will make this a series, bringing in Carlos' family and making us feel like we know all of them as well as we know and like Carlos. I especially appreciated that Mr. Trevino wrote a hard to put down book that is clean and could be read by the whole family. We need more like that!! I also appreciated that the author, a former CIA agent, knows what he is writing about and is patriotic to the USA. I hope you're working on the sequel, Mr. Trevino!
That's Tight! Mar 27, 2003

total enjoyment Feb 12, 2003
Great book from the start. A very different style with action, humor, and reality based. I could not put it down once I started reading it. Reading it was an experience of total enjoyment. The author brings you into the book and makes you feel as if you were part of the action. I highly recommend it. It would be a great primer for high school and college students also. Great prose! I really enjoyed it. Are there more titles by this author?
