An entertaining and well written Kindle First book; what a rare treat!
Memorable, unique characters help the story move along at a good pace. The main character, released from prison early due to the death of his wife, manages to outwit the team of killers set to pick him up. He is “rescued“ by the strange daughter of one of his former prisoners. Together they travel Europe hunting for a lost child and ultimately finding something else.
The writer does an excellent job of creating a sense of place from France across the Iberian Peninsula into Croatia and ultimately to Italy. The hotels come to life as do the small quiet places. The supporting characters all add to the story and each have logical connections to the main characters. The quest itself makes a few leaps that don’t always add up but all in all, the story holds together well.
