    I thought this was one of the best books I've ever read. A myste

    I thought this was one of the best books I've ever read. A mystery yes, but the mental state or psyche of Melissa was what this book was all about. If you have ever travelled alone or been dependent on someone and then suddenly on your own, you would be able to relate to what Melissa was going through as she gained confidence and eventually realized she could take care of herself. I love the Mrs. Pollifax series but the author has shown a deep understanding of how an individual thinks and works through personal issues.

    Headline was intrigueing

    The beginning catches your interest with hint of intrigue but goes downhill from there. There was way too much into the main character psychological thinking all the way through the book. No apparent plot and no real characters. All you read is about the main character and vague references to her past and then all focus is on her mental state. It was so very unlike Dorothy Gilman's Mrs. Pollifax books, which I have always found to be excellent. I felt like I had to force myself to finish the book hoping it would get better and the ending was very anti-climatic and disappointing. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

    Women lost in herself

    The book is about a young woman named Melissa who was out in the world for the first time by herself. When she is pulled accidentally in to the world of spy¿s and enemy operatives. While the book had it exciting monuments it was repetitive in losing you in the young woman¿s psyche. Just when it was going to get exciting you pulled back into the mental psyche of the Melissa. While in the end she is successful in beating her own demons you never real find out how the story ends leaving you hanging to make your own conclusion, which was very frustrating to say the least. It is worth reading if you like stories of concerning personal triumph, it made a poor mystery.
