Marty Kris is to be heartily congratulated for his masterful job of bringing the characters to life. Cate Barrett, a fav, is to be commended for a narration that displays her narrative skill. I am sorry she appeared too little too late. The story is full of unexpected plot twists which keep the reader somewhat engaged. Lots of evil doings and near escapes. It’s not something Expatriate would have read.

Great Resource
