1) Another masterpiece by George. This was about Eve and Dennis. They were together several years ago at a political convention and enjoyed a 10 day sexual romp. Their politics and views were at opposite ends of the spectrum. They weren’t in love. They both filled a need for that short time together. That short time produced a child. Now, several years later, they are brought together after this child is kidnapped and the kidnapped demands dennis, who is now the editor of the Source, to reveal the father of this child. A secret that has been kept all these years. Eve is now a member of Parliament (MP) and insists this does not get reported and keeps the police out of it. She also demands the story DOES NOT get printed. Enter ST. James, Debra and Helen. They are asked to help find the child and keep the police out of it. They do unwillingly but they participate solely for the hope of finding the child. This mystery is full of suspense with intricate story lines that include Barbara and Tommy who are brought into the plot later on. This series seems to get better and better from book to book. Towards the last 100 pages, I could not do a thing until I finished it. Looking forward to the next one!!
