The secret of C Street is secrecy. Solomon Rosenberg is a 20-year veteran of C Street, a government lawyer, and a bi-polar CIA assassin. He breaks the silence by recording his missions. Jacqueline is left holding the evidence of the treasonous acts. The CIA and the men of C Street are in pursuit; they are one step behind on a mountain top, in London, and all the way to Costa Rica. Palestine is willing to pay, and Israel is willing to help. Who can she trust with the evidence of espionage, murder, and the computer hijacking of America? No one! The game is on....

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!
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.
