Or has she finally met her match?
Filled with suspense and international espionage, spirited female sleuth, Louise Moscow's next adventure is where James Bond meets Temperance Brennan.
The entirety of a historical fiction book is written well when the author has witnessed or experienced something similar or exactly the same to what they are writing. Too bad you never experienced the thrills that you write about in your books.
Too political biased. Not what I expected. Could not finish it….bored and tired of bias political opinions.
A fast moving thriller involving international banking.Timely to read the history and how much is reflected in our present day.Russia has always been our evil enemy inAmerica as well as Europe.
