If his secret gets out, it could cost him his life. Sports journalist Lauren Ross is in hot pursuit of Bobby’s story. Where did the boy with the blazing speed and magical hands come from?

I really enjoy the characters and started with the prologue which helps in understanding the characters. The action and locations are very interesting and Mr . Stelmach really gives an amazingly thorough description of The Ukraine and Chernobyl and the people of Ukraine and Russia. I hope he keeps writing sequels. I will read them all.
Tell us about yourself!
This story is growing on me. The original plot is given more depth here and old plus new conflicts keep the mysteries moving.
The first book seemed to end with many conflicts calmed, if not concluded. This book picked up the conflicts surrounding the locket and the intrusive reporter, plus adds a murder that lands Bobby in jail. Of course all are connected to the main story thread from the first book. Nadia, once again, is chased through Ukraine, and the Chernobyl exclusion zone, Much is resolved or at least calmed as in the first book, but this time there is a cliffhanger ending. I am looking forward to listening to the next installment!
Again, Tanya Eby does a wonderful job of narrating.
