The Istanbul Conspiracy (Code Raven #7) by Lynda Filler – Review by Sarah Oakes

The Istanbul Conspiracy (Code Raven #7)The Istanbul Conspiracy by Lynda Filler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great read about weddings. Tensions run high and danger lurks when the daughter of the Minister of Defense and her new groom are found murdered. All Luke and Samaar want to do is get married on a yacht in Instanbul. But life seems to have other ideas in store for them when a security breach puts their plans on hold. With these targets on new couples, the team of the Raven Group race to find the culprits before they strike again. Can they find out the truth before it’s too late?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Luke determined but loving underneath or Samaar standing up for herself but vulnerable underneath.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the scenery of a Istanbul or Turkey with its seas and beaches for sense of peace and tranquility, but also foreboding bad tidings.
The switch of perspectives worked well to display both sides of the story and was easy to follow with names in the chapter titles. I also liked the use of suspense with small details revealed slowly to make you keep reading to find out who’s behind it and why they’re attacking weddings. Fast paced action and high stakes made for a captivating read. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.

5 out of 5 stars

The Istanbul Conspiracy is the 7th book in the Code Raven series written by Lynda Filler and she did not disappoint me I think this was the best book in the series. The characters are well written with strong personalities and I love their quirks and the way they interact with each other.

Luke and Samaar of the Raven Group have their own wedding to attend but it’s called off at the last minute when they uncover a breach in their security. Instead of returning to Paris, they come to the aid of the Turk to get to the bottom of this horrific event. Highly anticipated photos of the wedding of DJ Turk and the daughter of the Minister of Defense which has taken place on a mega-yacht on the Bosphorus in Istanbul now show’s corpses lined up along the dock and a bride covered in blood.
Was this a random act of terror, a targeted assassination of the Turkish political elite, or an attack on DJ Turk who leads a double life. With the conspiracy they uncover they must prevent it before the balance of power in the world is perilously reversed.
I highly recommend this book/series and please read the series in order so you can understand the concept of the series….

I loved the characters they really stood out and help pushed the story further. I can’t wait to see where else this author takes this series!

WOW!! The second I finished this story I immediately went to find the next in the series and wouldn’t you know its not available yet 🙁

I am so in love with this series I cant even stress that enough. This was an edge of your seat kind of story. I started it and did not put it down until I finished, my head was throbbing because I was reading so fast, I couldn’t stop myself. There is a lot of moving parts in this book and I loved how each chapter let me know where I was and that told me who I was with.

Get ready because this book starts out with high energy and never lets go. I love this team..Luke and Samaar are right up in the top of my favorite book couples ever, and I was thoroughly invested in the new characters that were introduced and so glad that so many of my instincts were right with these people. The twists that kept making my jaw drop were placed so perfectly making sure the reader had no clue they were coming, and our little Alice is growing up, I love how she is taking after her momma yet holding on to so much of her normal childhood spirit. Her part in this whole story was written perfectly!

The ending!!! Pieces started falling into place for me and I had to stop and think about them before I read on making whatever wait time I have till the next book almost unbearable. Ive decided to do a complete reread of this entire series timed perfectly for the next release. There is no way I can recommend reading this as a standalone, you absolutely must one click this entire series..It is Incredible!

The Istanbul Conspiracy is the seventh instalment in Lynda Filler’s Code Raven series! I have read most of the series so it was an absolute pleasure to spend some time with the Raven Group again! I have to admit that it seems that the series gets more thrilling with each book and I have no idea how the writer does it!! You finish the story and think gosh, I wonder what they will be facing next and here it comes, nail biting rollercoaster ride!
I love how every story has their own story line/case while still keeping the big picture that makes it really important to keep reading the series in order (it means that I need to go back and catch up and it is not a hardship!).
The Istanbul Conspiracy takes the team on the road to help one of their own whose life turns into tragedy on the day that is supposed to be the their happiest day. I love the bond that binds the group together as they truly are there for each other, at times putting their own plans and needs aside like it is this time.
Through twists and turns and guessing game we finally find out who, where and why and then, the writer throws in a special treat at the end! Thank you! I cannot wait to see what comes next for the Raven gang!

This was an awesome read! I was hooked from beginning to end! It was full of action and everything I’ve come to love from this author! It was really well written and I think probably my favourite from this series to date! I loved reading along with the Raven Group to see just if they could work out what had happened – I was left guessing on many occasions and I loved that the author was able to put in so many twists and turns! I liked that the story was told from multiple points of view. I loved seeing the characters from previous stories back again and I guess this could be read as a standalone I 100% recommend reading the whole series! Its jam packed full of action with fantastic characters!

I have followed the Code Raven books from the very beginning and was super excited to get my hands on this seventh book in the series, The Istanbul Conspiracy! This book would draw you in if you haven’t read the stories previous to this one just from the gorgeous cover alone! I adored that and it drew me in and set me up for the adventure that was behind the cover.

This book really brings the action and intrigue! Never a dull moment for the Raven team as they work hard to figure out who is behind a mass casualty event. Will they unearth a terrorist organization or will it be something completely unexpected? I loved how this made me feel as if I was right there as the action happened. It had me waiting and reading with baited breath as things played out to see how everything would come to a conclusion. A minor cliffhanger was there and so again I wait and am excited to get my hands on the next Code Raven book!

Luke and Samaar are finally getting married. Of course the day gets cancelled because they need to save the world again. DJ Turk and the daughter of the Minister of Defense of Istanbul tried to get married as well but theirs ended much more violently. The Raven Group gathers in Turkey to figure out what went wrong. Some conspiracies run deeper than others. Luke has to work with some other top secret agencies to figure this one out.

Another action packed, high intense espionage novel by Lynda Filler. I’ve read a few other books in this series and I’ve noticed the author’s writing strengthen throughout. This is the best book so far in the Code Raven series. The story is full of twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Everything is connected and boy, what an ending! The next book should be quite interesting.

This is a on the edge of your seat story. This involves a couple different weddings that are put on hold due to unforeseen circumstances. That starts a whole bunch of action and drama that continues out the story. These characters are strong and the story is fast paced.

This isn’t my first book by this author. I liked seeing these characters again. It’s great seeing them progressing with their lives.
