My Thoughts

It’s been a while since I’ve read a flat-out, non-stop spy thriller, and I found Reinhardt a spicy appetizer to lead me back to the genre. A relatively short book, this can be easily read in an afternoon, and you will find yourself flying through the pages to get to the end.

From page one, the reader is thrown into a situation that rivals the Mission: Impossible movies, where the action is non-stop. Short chapters pack a punch as we follow our protagonist from Moscow back to the U.S. and on to a new life where he thinks he’ll be able to live in peace and happiness, far removed from the blood-and-guts work to which he was accustomed.

He’s very wrong.

Author Scott offers clever dialog and vivid description to build the tension and drive the plot forward. She makes her protagonist as human as possible despite his sketchy and violent past, while at the same time creating a pretty nasty villain. All of this comes together in an exciting and easy-to-read thriller. Well done and recommended.
