See? I bet you all thought I forgot about you this morning. Have no fear, I’m still here. (Yeah, that was pretty cheesy) I’m working on revamping my schedule now that I’m writing first thing in the morning. Hope I’m not driving you guys too crazy. Anyway, enough about me. On to the review.
Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books featuring The second book in Seb Kirby’s James Blake series, Regret No More.
No one is safe from the past
James Blake and his family were safe – until he received the phone call that meant they knew where he was. A stolen Picasso lies at the root of an international conspiracy that reaches into the life of a prominent US politician with devastating consequences not just for him but for so many of those caught up in the crime. Wolfgang Heller, a ruthless assassin, is seeking to eliminate those who have any knowledge of the theft. James Blake must come out of hiding and face the threats to himself and his family by putting himself on the line.
As I’m sure you all remember, I’m a huge fan of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan universe but I’m also a lover of Frederick Forsythe and Ian Fleming. There are few things I enjoy more than sitting back with an entertaining espionage book. In that regard, Seb Kirby didn’t disappoint as I enjoyed this from the very beginning.
Writing this genre is challenging as there are enough details needed to make the novels believable that could fill their own encyclopedia. With that in mind, I have to admit that I was grateful this wasn’t a detailed as your typical Tom Clancy novel. The flow between facts and fiction was smooth and believable to the point I actually had to look up a couple of events to see if they happened. This was a fun read I had trouble putting down and look forward to reading more from this author.
