This was a book packed with suspense and intrigue, and while it was hard to follow at times, I still couldn’t put it down until I got to the end and found out what happened! The story centers around a set designer on Broadway, a former KGB assassin, a famed pianist, and a plot against the United States President. There’s a lot more to it than that though, as you learn about family ties in the strangest places, with more than one person who is related that you would never think could be connected to each other. This is the second book in a series, and while the story stood alone okay, there are times when you can see that there are things that you missed if you didn’t read the first book.
There were time when the names in this book took away from the story for me, making it harder to track along with. I know that Russian spies should probably have Russian names, but with so many different names that were hard to pronounce, it did get distracting. In spite of that though, this book was well written and kept my interest all the way through to the end.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts and opinions expressed here are completely my own.
