Thanks to the internet and my husband I was able to get this wonderful book before it came out in the stores (And I live in the Caribbean). I just got through the book which I received as a birtday gift. It had me up all night so this morning its hard for me to concentrate at work. The book had me guessing the whole time. Its similar to the feeling you get when you figure out a crossword puzzle word. At the end I thought,'Well I did guess part right' Thanks for a wonderful read on my birthday. I wish Barnes and Noble can make it easier for readers outside of the US to get books Hot off the press also.

Staying at a relative's house, saw their bookshelf and picked whatever looked interesting. Heard of the author from an episode of Golden Girls, to be honest. Anyway, the summary sounded like a suspenseful read. And it was, fast paced even. Really couldn't put it down and was surprised how far I'd read. Dana Evan risks everything not only her life but that of her son even to solve a mystery, that takes her practically across the globe if you will. I don't know why but while reading this, Dana reminded me of that show Pepper Dennis and how the character was a reporter, etc. No I don't watch the show, just heard of it. Random I know. Anyway, surprisingly good read.

I liked the book. Preferred his others, though. I figured out who it was from the beginning.
