Since the earlier story, things have settled down for Ellie. Though her Iraq War injury is still painful, her relationship-challenged mother is on an extended visit, and she continues to drink too much, Ellie's life has a precarious kind of balance. She's making a decent living managing the artwork of an artist authorities would like to question, but no one is harassing her about him. Then an old army buddy asks her to try to locate his missing brother, who's somewhere in China but facing charges in the US for environmental activism, and it's like she's kicked open a hornets nest.
While its suspense is gripping and its environmental realities are sobering, this book is also packed with humor. My fingers are crossed hoping there will be a third book about Ellie.
And all you have to do to go along with her is download Lisa Brackmann's masterful novel and get reading. Because she's the heroine of Year of the Rat.
I loved Rock Paper Tiger, the first book in this series, and am happy to report this book was just as compelling a read. It's marketed as a thriller, and maybe it is--I don't know, because I don't read that genre. But I do read memoir and a lot travel writing and this book stands with the best of them. Paul Theroux, eat your heart out.
I really enjoyed reading this and I'm about to choose another of her books.
