What i did not feel happy about was the end. The end of the book seemed a bit abrupt and not a real showdown as you keep feeling it drifting towards.
All in all the book is a great reading experience and definitely worth much more than its costing on the kindle( i should know i have paid sad 7-9 $ for books who dont even come close to this one)
Julie Harris has won a new fan - I am so impressed, I'm about to rush out and buy her other novels!
The heroine is a gifted psychic. The story involves an attempt to assassinate a prominent character protected by a detail of military characters, a few of whom represent an American contingent. My prejudices disinclined me to believe that a woman author from halfway around the world might be able to stir such ingredients and bring the resulting soup to the level of delicious credibility. I'm happy to report that she did just that.
In another author's hands, the story may have become a cliché about today's ubiquitous assassination attempts and the improbable romantic chemistry between two individuals drawn into the crisis. But this author not only knew her way around a sentence but was able to string these tight sentences into a string of suspenseful and clever themes, woven together into an intriguing fabric that was impossible to set aside.
I am told that at the heart of creativity is surprise. That quality is in abundance in this story. The suspenseful nature of the story was especially attractive for me in that it reminded me of some the magnetic and cleverly paced visual gifts of Alfred Hitchcock. The story showed what it needed (no more than that, leaving excellent spaces), rather than told.
Having been a teacher of Creative Writing and English some time ago, I'm a harsh critic of literature. But I am compelled to give this book five stars. I rolled the dice on this author's book, and I'm pleased to say that I was delighted with the satisfying results. My congratulations to her on her skill with the language, knack for storytelling and her use of these skills to present such a gift to us readers.
I look forward to more riveting experiences like this from this author in my reading future.
