The apparent suicide of a DC powerbroker drives Bahren’s electrifying conspiracy thriller set in USA, Hongkong, Myanmar, and Thailand. Anna Jones, the fisty New York Daily Journal reporter, is assigned to cover the apparent suicide of the World Bank Executive Director for South East Asia, Nou Channarong. But when a key source is murdered brutally, Anna knows there is more to the case than it seems on the surface. Working alongside Raven Garcia, her old nemesis, Anna sets on the trail of a sinister conspiracy which has its roots spread as far as Asia, unaware that her quest to unearth the truth will lead her into life-altering peril. Bahren skillfully evokes the quiet desperation of the characters, whose backstories he gradually reveals. In particular, Raven whose motives remains doubtful as far as Anna is concerned. Anna, with her wit and resilience remains a winning protagonist. The supporting characters, including Viktor, Anna’s long-distance boyfriend, continue to evolve and grow in ways that’s sure to win readers’ hearts. The nonstop action, with menace and sinister conspiracies in tow keeps the pages turning. The crisp prose and intelligent plotting are a plus. The suspenseful plot is enhanced by the realistic portrait of Anna’s life as an investigative journalist. Conspiracy thrillers lovers won’t want to miss this one.
