This novel is well-paced and the suspense level keeps readers riveted. Although the amount of exposition in the story’s dialogue was overwhelming at times, the author is well versed in the language of espionage. However, it is hard to connect with Kat because she repeatedly disregards the instructions of those trying to keep her safe. The hero, Zac, saves the story and despite the challenges of keeping Kat safe, he remains compassionate and attentive to her emotional needs. Zac is so convincingly competent that he could have benefited from a more challenging last stand against the evil that threatens Kat. Readers will wish for their own Zac in their lives.
