I got halfway through this and realized it was a Christian novel and was only going to get worse. I left off where a rich Christian philanthropist hires the protagonist, a fairly incompetent female FBI officer (when the going gets tough, the tough get a stomach ache), to travel to Venezuela. At the end of describing her job, he tells you he wants to tell her "upfront" that the last person he sent with the same job, a "hardened Marine" never came back alive. LOL She gets down there and finds that part of the job of the missionaries is to bring the Bible to a group of tribal indigenous people. They speak a language with no written counterpart, but are attempting to create one and then translate the Bible into it. Apparently the author's Wikipedia research did not delve too deeply into linguistics. I started the book knowing only its title and thinking that a mystery or thriller set in modern-day Kiev had potential. Unfulfilled. I did skip to the end and found more nonsense where our intrepid FBI agent gets shot in the chest, but is saved by a stone medallion hand carved by a 16-year-old virgin who accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her own personal savior. The medallion stopped the bullet, or maybe it was the hand of God, I forget exactly because the author usually makes it one or the other in life in life or death matters. Not to worry, because even though her heart stops and an ambulance takes 30 minutes to get from a Paris subway station to an American hospital (only an American port in a storm?), it turns out to be just a flesh wound.
Prediction: She either marries or becomes best friends with the Ukrainian gangster.
