City of Exiles
Dec 21, 2012
Europe's troubled past and terrifying future collides in the streets and prisons of London—and beyond. This new international thriller hinges on a real historical event, one of the most enigmatic unsolved mysteries in the history of Russia.
This a definitive must read for lovers of spy/political/mystery books. It starts off with spies and killers tracking and double-tracking each other, turns into a forensics/murder riddle and then pulls out a historical mystery.
So you have chase scenes, blood, intrigue, mayhem, mystery and procedural police work all in one novel.
Normally I might tout this as a "man's novel" (I know, smack me), but with the lead investigator being a female it adds an additional kick to it that could draw in the female reader that generally might not have interest in this type of story.
