Two years ago, Leslie Robb had been an accountant at Imperial National Bank and her life-partner Gina Tomasso worked there as well. Gina had been shot during the attempted bank robbery (Vigilante Series/Book 5: 6 Hours 46 Minutes). She had thought she would never become involved in another relationship because she never wanted to feel the pain of losing someone close to her again. She had gone to work with Jonathan & Chris at Discreet Activities and that work helped her get through mourning Gina's death.
Then she met Dominique Petit at the mailboxes in the building where they both lived. Dominique works for a French pharmaceutical firm, living in Montreal part of the year and Paris part of the year (she is a dual citizen). They soon became life-partners...
After finishing a job at Discreet Activities, Leslie flies to Paris, excited to visit Dominique. When Dominique and her sister, Corinne are kidnapped soon after her arrival, Leslie telephones Jonathan Addley & Chris Barry, her Discreet Activities colleagues, to come to Paris to assist her in tracking the sisters down. Also assisting on this missions is the girls' father, Henri Petit.
I know I say it a lot about the VIGILANTE series, but I simply could not put this book down! This is another story that could be taken from straight from today's headlines of newspapers around the globe. There are the twists & turns and rich details throughout this story. Claude Bouchard paints the characters so vividly that you feel like you know them. He draws you into the story early on and keeps your attention until the very end. I'm looking forward to THIRTEEN TO NONE!
Leslie Robb the heroine in this book has turned into one of my favorite characters and I truly hope to see more of her in the future. As with all of Claude's characters, she is someone you feel like you know personally. I am always amazed at the depth of personality he portrays with his characters.
Kudos Mr. Bouchard! Your quick wit and mesmerizing storytelling keep me coming back for more!
Bad guys causing trouble? Absolutely no one will get away with that while she's on the case. Add in her partners-in-justice, Chris and Jonathan and these guys won't stand a chance....right? But a disappearance isn't solved easily and will require everyone's talents if it will work....hopefully.
Mr. Bouchard has written another excellent story that made a tense and fast-paced read. I'm ready for more! There's a book #8 that I'm looking forward to! Well done!
Which brings me to this edition, in which the newest member of the team, Leslie Robb, simply wants to enjoy a quick vacation from fighting crime in lovely France. Alas, a human trafficking ring puts a damper on her plans, and their own hopes for a lucrative future, when they kidnap her lover. What ensues is riveting action and Bouchard style justice. If you've liked the series it's a must read. If you like the genre, check out the series.
