This story unfolds in layers and you are with them as each comes to life. The action is very intense and the main character, Sam Jameson is fantastic. She knows what she is doing no matter how stacked the odds are against her. Sam seems to be able to take as good as she gives. Sam is dealing with the Department of Homeland security, the NSA and possibly the FBI and CIA. There is something going on that just doesn’t feel right to her. The story takes her all over Europe and back home to the USA.
I was on the edge of my seat during some of these confrontations. The story is gripping and makes you look to the sky and listen.
Each character kept me involved and I actually worried for them as they went along. I was interested in the character Nero and how his future would play out. He is caught up in something he never anticipated and just wants to get back to his family. Dan, Sam’s deputy, Sam and Brock were easy to like and root for. Brock just wants Sam to get through all this danger safely. She has been known to get dead before. He did not want to see that repeated.
Lars Emmerich knows how to draw the reader in and keep them involved. Sam does what she has to do, but she has a heart and that shines through. I really enjoyed this book, it had everything.
Keep them coming, we need more suspenseful books like this one.
