The review of this Book prepared by Melanie

Tremendously exciting if somewhat predictable thriller in which CIA spy Drew Latham infiltrates a neo-Nazi organisation intent on taking over Europe by means of terrorism and also bio-warfare. To complicate matters more, the father of his lover Karen De Vries is a main conspirator. The action moves thick and fast, sweeping across Europe to a very unexpected and surprising climax. Overall, well worth a read, and check out the Hallmark movie adaptation as well!
