Nail biting stuff!
Once again Daniel de silva keeps us intrigued from first to last page! Just as you think you know what will happen next, he changes the goal posts! I cant wait for the next one, hopefully after Chiara has the twins and Gabriel is in charge of the office. Maybe, he will need to consider his family first before charging off to save the world! I love these stories, so up to date with the world as we know it today and so in tune with the politics.
