This was my between library lends book and I wish I'd read it straight through (in order to better recollect who's who).

Set in the cold war and opening in Sochi (how fun with the Olympics there this past year) this book is full of intrigue, twists and turns. Never really knowing who is "good" until the very end, this page turner keeps you interested with its many character arcs, quick scene changes, and action. Mainly following Peter Lucas, Asst. US Sec. of State for Human Rights, and his goal

You know when you are trying to complete a cryptic crossword and you just cannot break down the clue to get the answer? well this story was a bit like that.

Plot was over complicated, characters didn't gel - no spark between them, plenty of sex but there was very little "zing". I just didn't connect with this story.
