It was an enjoyable book. The author was very descriptive, which allows for a good reading experience. The female lead character could have been stronger, both emotionally and mentally. Spoiler: She did work in Iraq for the US State Department during the Iraq War, so she’s not that weak. The story was fluent and it kept me engaged. The author gave some reveals throughout the story that was easy to pick up on. All in all, it was enjoyable, and I recommend the book to anyone who likes a good mystery/thriller.
