|Summary, etc.:||"Investigating the funding of Iran's nuclear program, Marc Royce must rely on an old ally to help him uncover the truth--before it's too late"--|
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2013 October #2
Marc Royce, the former State Department investigator (recently fired, he's now a freelancer), is hired to find out who's secretly funding the Iranian nuclear program. In Geneva, trying to follow the money trail, he is unexpectedly reunited with Kitra Korban, the Israeli nurse with whom, following the events in Rare Earth (2012), he had an intense but short-lived relationship. Their reunion is strained: Marc had broken off the relationship, neither knows the other is in Geneva, and they meet again just as a bomb detonates, nearly killing them both. The book follows Marc's investigation into the Iranian matter, but also traces the personal story of Marc and Kitra. Astute readers will have no trouble figuring out, very early on, how their story works out, but that's OK: sometimes the journey is interesting enough that we don't mind knowing how it will end. As always, Bunn works Christian themes into the story but in a subtle way. They're there if you want to see them, but if you'd prefer to see the book strictly as an engaging action thriller with a romantic subplot, that works, too. Copyright 2013 Booklist Reviews.
