I thought this was a great book. Very enjoyable adventure, set in an interesting time period. I love stories about the Chicago Fire, San Fran earthquake, etc. The book is relatively clean with no long drawn-out sex scenes. I loved how the main characters changed throughout the story. Good survival parts as well. Good book.
I''m reading through the Wiggs series of books and this is the 3rd I've had the pleasure of reading. Each book I read seems to get a little better, not that any are bad. Being from Wisconsin and having family from the shores of Lake Superior I found myself identifying with the plot setting and enjoyed the little bit of history associated with the plot. Good read.
I read the trilogy that included "The Firebrand" and "The Mistress". This was my absolute fave. I would search high and low for a man like Tom Silver. Big, rugged and filled with revenge. How could Deborah not love this man. From the fires of Chicago to the frozen lakes of Canada he was hot anyway you look at him. With a kidnapper of his quality, freedom is definitely overrated.
This book was OK. I enjoyed the well developed characters but the plot was only average. The story could have been significantly more complex in many ways and less lengthy and drawn out in others. However, overall, I enjoyed the story and the premise and will pursue the other stories in the tilogy.
