Love the characters; plot stretches credulity,
This review is from: Long Lost (Myron Bolitar) (Hardcover)First Sentence: "YOU don't know her secret," Win said to me.
When talent/sports agent Myron Bolitar's girlfriend, Ali, breaks it off, there is no reason not to respond to a call from his former lover, Terese Collins, and fly to Paris. Terese had married, had a daughter who died in a car accident, and divorced.
Myron is stopped, but released, by French Homeland security, but finds he is followed as he meets with Terese. Things quickly turn to shootouts in cafes, terrorist groups, murder and the possibility that Terese's daughter may, in fact, be alive.
The plot was certainly timely as the story involved terrorism, black sites, torture and twilight sleep. The plot was very good, in a twisty, horrible way, as it dealt with the dangers of extremism, and asks some serious questions while wrapped up in a story with some very real characters.
I had forgotten how much I like these characters; Myron, his parents, Esparanza, Big Cindy and, yes, even Win about whom we learn a bit more. There is a lot of violence and one scene with Myron's health that does stretch credulity just a bit.
The pace never slowed down, from beginning to end. It was an exciting, somewhat thought provoking, enjoyable read
