Rating: 4/5

If you enjoy fast paced thrillers, with special agents, an innocent heroine implicated in murder and espionage, a hero fighting his own demons and romance, this is the book for you!

Doctor Molly Solent has made something of a name for herself after accidentally helping reveal the private archaeological company she was working for we actually stealing artefacts! She’s been asked to talk about this at the G20 Summit in Athens. She’s also been asked by Brandon Peterson, to pass an envelope to Professor Alexandre Doubrov whilst she’s there – being told this is important for the security of the US. On the flight to this venue she meets television presenter Victoria Ruskin who is attending the summit to investigate fracking. At the cocktail party where she’s planning to give the Russian Professor the envelope she re-encounters David Church and when the Professor is shot and killed whilst she is talking to him, David comes to protect and rescue her. That’s the start of a race to save Molly as Russian and Greek intelligence both try to arrest or capture her, suspecting her of being involved directly in the murder.

The story has a superb plot line, fast paced action, double dealers and not everyone is who they say they are! To quote the story, “Basically, it’s a bad karma blowback of epic proportions “…. so if you enjoy spy stories, with mysteries, suspense, sex and thrills, you’ll probably really enjoy this story.

Thanks to the Author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
