This is a real page-turner! The characters are believable; the author's astute attention to detail brings the reader into the story, captivated by each new chapter. There are a few editing points that would make it perfect, but only a very few and nothing that really would change the context. The journey of this tale is what brings the whole story to life! The characters, each unique, play a defined role in bringing the whole plot together. I was astonished, amused and felt closure as I reached the epilogue. I would highly recommend this author to anyone who enjoys a geographically relevant thriller. Make sure you have a block of time because you will not be able to put this one down once you start!
