A nicely woven story highlighting two federal agencies and deception...and a little family in there too.

I am not generally a thriller fan; every now and then I will pick one up, it will start intriguing, and then the writing and characters turn dull, and the plot seems obvious. Usually I don't finish. I almost quit on this one, for the obvious reasons, but I kept going and actually enjoyed the end. (I had guessed most, but not all of the plot.)

It's about a woman who is enjoying a stay in Lisbon with her new husband, when the husband disappears, she goes to the police and the consulate. There's a few twists in the plot, mostly around some "me-too" type issues. Some of the writing about sexual violence is pretty heavy-handed---the book would have benefited from sticking to the plot a bit more. Also, IMO, from more character development--but I think that about most thrillers.… (mais)

I just glanced at the first page of this book I ordered for my partner--and I was off and running. The story took off with authentic thriller components when Ariel wakes to find her husband missing from the Lisbon hotel room the morning after their arrival. It's all warp speed from then on with touches of Lisbon and several narrative threads covering the local police, the American Embassy, the CIA of course and a political nominee. Great escape.

Well, that was fun! Short chapters, lots of dialog, chockablock suspense, amazing machinations, Parisian notes and landmarks and photos and a tough female protagonist testing her mettle and her marriage.

"Kate and Peter had a typically late Andalusian dinner accompanied by vermouth and then tinto and then sherry--all told, perhaps too much to drink, though it didn't look that way at the time. It never looks that way at the time, especially when you're having great fun, sharing jokes, smiles, intimacies, a long slow walk through the sexy Spanish streets, the tapas bars spilling tipsy patrons onto the sidewalks, an air of permissiveness.
It was the type of night that looks a lot like a romantic date, one that ends in bed."
