Sue Duffy in her new book "Red Dawn Rising" Book Two in the Red Returning Trilogy series published by Kregel Publications gives us a contemporary thriller. From the back cover: Can they decipher the architect's blueprint for disaster in time? They come from opposite sides of the world...and opposite lives. She is a young set designer on Broadway. He is a former KGB assassin trying to outrun his vicious past and the underground revolution he once served. What they have in common are painful secrets that fester deep inside them, and an urgent quest for answers that can save the United States from a massive terrorist strike...and famed Lisel Bower from assassination. Working separately for widely divergent motives, Cass Rodino tracks the mysterious activities of a man she knows well, following him into the New York night and fleeing her own wounded past. Her counterpart, Evgeny Kozlov, has narrowly escaped his Russian homeland to pursue a phantom figure, known only as the Architect, who has masterminded an insidious plot to destroy the American's confidence in their country and its powers to protect them. The arcs of their investigations converge when Cass and Evgeny are swept into a major CIA/FBI dragnet, only to discover that the target of their search is conspiring to resurrect the Soviet Union and holds a secret that could devastate the administration of a U. S. President. With time slipping from their grasp, who or what will lead them to the center of the maze and the Architect? Will they get there in time to save Liesel? Political intrigue and suspense saturates "Red Dawn Rising". There is a villain, the Architect, who wants to undermine the United States, resurrect the Soviet Union and assassinate Liesel Bower. Evgeny escapes Russia trying to track the Architect down and stop him. Cass is out to stop the assassination. Now Cass and Evgeny need to work together to accomplish both their plans. "Red Dawn Rising" is almost a non-stop action thriller. Ms. Duffy has put in so many twists and turns in her story that it would make a roller coaster envious. Cass, Evgeny and Lisel are wonderful characters that we care about, want to see escape the danger that they find themselves in and want them to succeed. Sue Duffy has given us a unique thriller that will keep you on the edge of your chair as you read and flip pages as fast as possible. I recommend this book highly and look forward to the next book in the series! Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Kregel Publications.

This is the second book in this series of Red Returning, that I have read. It is just as good at the first one, and not one to be missed. We have return visits and more trials for some of the characters from the first book "The Sound of Red Returning". We also meet some new faces, and are again involved with people who are trying to destroy the USA. Cass Rodino is carrying unnecessary guilt, she also doesn't see what is right under her nose. Somehow she becomes involved in trying to save Both Liesl Bower, and this Country. We do learn some surprising facts, and some that will really surprise you, and you don't see coming. Be ready for a lot of action, and what we don't see right in front of us, they look and act like the rest of us, but they are not what they appear. Do you think you really know your next door neighbor? Better yet how about your father or mother. Don't miss this book that will really make you think, it is all possible. I received this book through Kregel Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review.

I received a copy of RED DAWN RISING by Sue Duffy from Kregel. It is the second book in the Red Returning series. Although I hadn’t previously read the first novel, I’ll look for it now, and keep my eyes open for the third book in the trilogy. For now, let’s take a look at RED DAWN RISING. Cass is a Broadway set designer (I love books in New York City) and Evgeny was a KGB assassin. They’re both after the Architect, a mastermind. The entire novel reminded me of an old-fashioned crime show, which enchanted me. It is the perfect kind of mystery, where the characters are all believable. I never had to backpedal and ask myself, “Why would he/she have done that? That’s so unrealistic!” The pieces all fell into place. Something I didn’t like was the character of Jordan, a male, just because he was a male. Being mistake for a boy just because of my name (I’m a female Jordan) is a sore spot with me. Other than that, though, I enjoyed everything about this book. The writing flows easily. It makes an excellent bedtime read. I’m the type of person who will open a book right before bed to help wind down, and this fit that spot. Sometimes it was hard to stop reading since I needed to know what happened next.

This is the second book in the Red Returning series. But if you haven't read the first book you can still read this book and not be lost. If you enjoy political intrigue this will be the book for you. This is steeped deep in people living a double life and never knowing who you can trust. As much as I like watching movies with political schemes I had trouble getting into this book. It is definitely not a quick read, at least not for me. I had to really slow down so I wouldn't miss all the details. But you might like the story so much you can read it faster than I could. Overall Duffey has created a book thick in plot with characters you will be cheering for or hoping for their fall. This book might not be for everyone but it is definitely for those who enjoy this type of story. A copy of this book was given to me by Kregel Publications in exchange for an honest review.
