ALLUDE TO MURDER
by Emma Kennedy
After gutsy American teacher, Lindsay Forester, saves the life of a young Turkish man in Berlin, she ends up hiding the antique Eastern Orthodox icon he took off a dead Serb agent. Jahvet Kahveci, the young Turk's older
brother, meets Lindsay and disregards her wariness of his dark and enigmatic demeanor, declaring himself her protector. He adores her and is so persistant and irresistible that her heart stumbles. Yet, cultural bias
inhibits her trust. They are sucked into a smuggling scheme designed to re-ignite war in Eastern Europe, and Jahvet is hard-pressed without trust to save Lindsay from those who would kill for the icon. This includes illicit
art dealers plus the extremist Muslim smugglers and Serb secret agents who stalk her, alluding to murder.
This novel should appeal to fans of Linda Howard's ALL THE QUEEN'S MEN or to fans of Karen Robards and Sandra Brown. The balance of romance/suspense weighs more heavily on the suspense side.
