I've been reading Clair Poulson books for a long time. He is great at writing light mystery/suspense stories that capture the essence of the genre without going overboard on the gruesome or violent details which I appreciate.
Clair Poulson is know for writing tell it like it is, no nonsense kind of characters and this story is no different. I did appreciate the attempt at light humor from the main character, Jayden. It helped give him a bit more personality which is something I sometimes struggle with in Poulaon's books. The plot is always excellent and moves forward at a fantastic pace, but it's the emotional connection with the characters that I am usually missing.
The relationship between Jayden and Nadia is almost instant. The attraction is definitely there and it progresses to a familiarity within hours. I'm not sure I buy how quickly that moved, but I guess when you are adults in perilous circumstances, emotions are heightened and connections can be made more quickly. I wish I had Jayden's dog. He sort of stole the show a few times!
Overall, another good book from Clair Poulson. I enjoyed the pacing and the constant feeling I had of wondering how all the "bad" guys came into play and connected to what was going on. It was a fun story!
Content: mild violence, LDS fiction so some mention of religious things although nothing overly preachy.
