Aleksandr travels to Transnistria to see his nephew Pavlo, upon arriving he is shocked at what he finds. The Ukraine is suffering after the invasion by Moldova and Aleksandr discovers Pavlo is one of many children suffering from tuberculosis and is living in a disused mine. Sadly the nurses there dont have the medicines or means to help these children get better. Aleksander needs to do something fast as time is running out. In a desperate bid of help he contacts some pop stars hoping they will help. One pop star, Sontia La Cruz replies saying that she wants to help but when he tries to follow her up on the offer he has a hard job getting hold of her. There must be something he can do to find Sontia.
Next we have Beth, an auxiliary nurse. She is fed up of her day to day life and no longer loves her husband. On attending the leaving party of her co worker Enrico, Beth gets caught up in a mistaken identity episode and is kidnapped because some men think she is none other than the famous Sonita La Cruz. As we follow along with Beth's adventure, there are many twists and turns to come.
I like the way Alison Brodie explored the countries mentioned and i felt good rapport with the characters as it was told from various points of view. This was great to escape for the night on a luxury yacht and act like a superstar. From little dog Pookie to prawns and cavier this is one story you wont want to put down. I look forward to Alison's next book.

On the surface, world famous rock Goddess Sonita La Cruz appears to have the perfect life. She is set to blow all competition out of the water with her latest performance, she has a loving fiancé who would do anything for her and she is rich, successful and glamorous. However there is something (or someone) in Sontia’s life who is making it far from perfect..
Aleksandr Shtcherbatsky Zhivago is travelling to Transnistria to visit his nephew Pavlo and is shocked with what he finds. The Ukraine is suffering after the invasion by Moldova and Aleksandr discovers Pavlo is one of many children suffering from tuberculosis and is living in a disused mine. The few nurses who are looking after Pavlo don’t have the medicines that they need to help these children recover. Aleksander realises he needs to do something – and fast.
He tries contacting various pop stars in a bid to get them to help his cause. He receives a response back from none other than Sontia La Cruz saying that she wants to help, however when he tries to follow up on her correspondence he has difficulty getting hold of her. There’s only one thing for it…Sonita can’t be that hard to find, surely?
Then we have auxiliary nurse Beth. Trapped in a loveless marriage and fed up with the drudgery of her day-to-day life, Beth is dismayed to find out that one of her gorgeous colleagues Enrico is returning to Spain. Little does he realise but Enrico has been the one who gets Beth through changing bed-pans, how can she carry on without him? However, when Beth attends his leaving do a series of unfortunate events lead to a classic case of mistaken identity. Things start to look really odd when Beth awakes the next day finding herself on a boat in the middle of nowhere.Read more ›
First we meet Sonita La Cruz. Raised among the garbage dumps of the favela, Sonita is now a big rock star with an even bigger social conscience, someone who Cares. This throws a mighty spanner in the works as far as her upcoming marriage to billionaire Bill Stratton is concerned. Bill’s idea of a wife does not involve her ‘walking through slums touching children with diseases’, but is modelled more along the lines of his adored mother, ‘a tight-assed WASP who viewed the poor as the enemy’. Complicating things even further for the Brazilian diva is self-styled ‘Carlos the Avenger’, a homicidal religious maniac who has one aim in life: ‘Get Sonita’.
From South Carolina we shoot across the ocean to Transnistria and our swashbuckling Ukranian hero, Aleksandr, a man with a finger in many a dubious pie, but like Sonita, a character with a heart of gold. In this war-torn country Aleksandr’s mission to rescue his sister and sick nephew Pavlo turns into a nobler enterprise–saving the entire children’s hospital where Pavlo is a patient, and which is threatened with extinction by the Moldovan army. But to pull off such a coup he needs help, and who better to appeal to than Sonita de la Cruz, modern day Mother Theresa? The Plan is put into action, and soon Aleksandr has his reply. Sonita will help! But there is just one problem. Nobody knows where she is.Read more ›
