This was such an exciting take on an espionage story! I know it may seem like a common spy story, but what separates it from other spy stories is its narrative flow and characterization. The plot is so compelling, so I doubt that anyone would stop reading once you start. Matt has to protect the confidentiality of his secret mission, but when he gets involved with a Russian woman, he finds himself charged with espionage and treason. The only way to reduce his sentence is if he testifies against Helga, the Russian woman that he fell for. What makes this a compelling read is the need to find out who the real spy is, and how he can free himself from the total mess he’s in. Overall, I’m giving this book 5 stars for its plot and entertainment value.
