If you haven't read any books by Mr Mitchell, give this one a try! This is a great story with all the twists and turns that keep you guessing all the way to the end. It's quite nerve wracking to know that there has to be someone on their trail the whole time. All I wanted was for Yumi to be found safe and sound! The way the letter was hidden for so many years is really ingenious. Makes you wonder how much else is still out there still buried or hidden. It's hard to put the book down. A good read.
HAVE JUST FINISHED THIS FASCINATING NOVEL AND AM CONSTANTLY AMAZED AT ROB'S ABILITY TO GEOGRAPHICALLY AND HISTORICALLY RESEARCH HIS SUBJECTS SO THE STORYLINE FLOWS WITHOUT APPEARING CONTRIVED . AGAIN VERY DIFFICULT TO PUT IT DOWN ONCE ONE HAS BEGUN READING. EXCELLENT WORK.
