My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is a follow-up to a previous novel that I haven’t read and although you do not really need to know the previous story I did find myself wondering what had gone on before as it is referred to quite a lot.
Ridley Jones has been to pick up some photographs when she is picked up by the FBI and shown a mysterious figure in the background of her photos. The FBI believe that this person is her uncle Max (who she recently found out is actually her father) who everyone thought was dead after some dodgy business dealings. Ridley is compelled to find out if Max is actually alive but she is not the only one looking for him and she finds herself being used as bait to lure him out.
This novel has some good tense moments, and a twisty turny plot where you are not quite sure if anyone is who they say they are. I wasn’t sure about the over familiarity of the main character “chatting” to the reader at the beginning but this doesn’t carry on through the book so it can be overlooked.
Overall a good page-turner, but perhaps read the previous book first. (Having said that I don’t think I will go back and read that one now.)
