    Fifty-year-old Marcy Taggart’s husband has left her for another woman. Devastating as that may be for some, it hardly compares to the death of her twenty-one-year-old daughter, Devon, in a canoeing accident. Her body was never found in the icy waters of Georgian Bay, and as a result Marcy has never fully accepted her death. Two years have passed, and she continues to see the young woman’s face in crowds and has even stopped strangers on the street, certain she has finally discovered her long lost daughter.Now, in Ireland, Marcy yet again thinks she sees her daughter, casually strolling past....

    I have not written a review before but this book was so badly narrated and obsessively repetitive that I had to express my disgust. The narrator's voice quavers and cracks through the entire book and gives the impression that everyone in the story is on the verge of tears. The main character goes over and over and over and over her mental obsessions until I wanted to scream. I had paid for the book so I stuck it out but will not buy another one from this author.

    Devastated by the discovery that his wife, Helen, was murdered, Special Agent Pendergast must have retribution. But revenge is not simple. As he stalks his wife's betrayers-a chase that takes him from the wild moors of Scotland to the bustling streets of New York City and the darkest bayous of Louisiana - he is also forced to dig further into Helen's past. And he is stunned to learn that Helen may have been a collaborator in her own murder.

    A User says: "Aloysius X. L. Pendergast"
    "Frustrating!!!"
    Overall

    Great suspense and action but I will not be buying the next one...I do not trust the authors not to leave me dangling YET AGAIN...

    Haunted by his failure to stop a suicide bomber in London, Gabriel Allon is summoned to Washington and drawn into a confrontation with the new face of global terror. At the center of the threat is an American-born cleric in Yemen who was once a paid CIA asset.

    jb says: "Superb New Volume in Silva's Gabriel Allon Series"
    "so disappointed"
    Overall

    I was hoping for a fast paced thriller. Instead after 3 hours I had to give up. This is a pro-Israeli propaganda speech thinly disguised as a spy novel. If I want to read political opinion, I will read non fiction. Boring and offensive.
