A chilling and utterly compelling thriller that you won’t be able to put down!
The only thing worth killing for is family.Everyone said she had her father’s eyes. A killer’s eyes. Nadia knew that on the bitterly cold streets of Moscow, she could never escape her past – but in just a few days, she would finally be free.
Bound to work for Kadinsky for five years, she has just one last mission to complete. Yet when she is instructed to capture The Rose, a military weapon shrouded in secrecy, Nadia finds herself trapped in a deadly game of global espionage.
And the only man she can trust is the one sent to spy on her…
This gritty novel captured me after the initial set up of the many characters. Set in the realm of the world's power thugs, it has believable characters and a plot that could be out of today's newspapers.
I liked Nadia. She is a tough woman, pitting loyalty to her sister against the vow she made her mother to never kill. I felt for her, getting caught up in the world of ruthless power mongers. She has to overcome deep pain to succeed in her task.
The plot is fascinating, with several groups wanting the technological device that could change the power balance of the world's nations. I really liked the emphasis on diving and the under water suspense.
I recommend this novel to those who enjoy a gritty story of international intrigue. The power mongers are ruthless so there is plenty of violence and this novel is not for the cozy mystery reader. It contains a good balance of character development and plot movement. And the ending, please tell me the sequel is coming soon. I'll be looking for it.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
