What Do I Think?
This story starts with a genuine hook; Captain Jay McCauley awakes in a hotel room feeling dreadful. Staggering to the window, she opens the curtains and realises she is in Moscow, but she cannot remember how she got there. When she contacts the hotel desk she discovers that she has lost five days of her life.
This story from a much switched on story-weaver is an extreme adventure, an honest thriller of classic design. I just could not put this book down and look forward to reading more from C. J Carver this story really deserves a 4 stars, very highly recommended.
