I rarely write reviews of books ... but this one was really a suspenseful and well-written tale. I started it in the morning - and put off everything all day so I could finish it. It reminded me of a Hitchcock film with an ordinary man up against unknown powerful enemies. I'm hoping they make a movie out of this one!
