The action in the book ebbs and flows ensuring the reader never gets bored and the book never gets stale. It has a perfect rhythm that keeps you turning page after page eager to know what comes next.Building up the tension and intrigue the book comes to a deadly ending that leaves you wanting more. The hints of worse things to come for Gavin and the CIA helps keep you invested in him as a main character, leaving you intrigued and wanting to know what deep dark secret he unknowingly keeps. Zoe is a strong female character with a very well hidden soft centre, like a mother hen looking out for her troop. So two independent characters both with flaws and secrets together they make the book an explosive , rollercoaster ride. I know i am wanting to read their next encounter together to see where they both end up.
My thanks to Emma Welton and Damppebbles Blogtours for my copy of the book, as always they are my own thoughts and opinions on the book.
