My Review: Loved this mystery suspense novel. At first I thought it was going to be a real piece of fluff book. I was wrong. The gritty details of this book are great. Combining high politics with corporate dirty dealings(is there a difference) brings great modern day relevance to this book.

I will recommend this book to other and will look ...more

Brenda Contay is a young woman who is haunted by her past. To escape the painful memories of a tragedy in her youth, she uses outside stimuli to dull her thoughts.

Drawing on his Peace Corps experience, Knister delivers an interesting medical thriller set in Micronesia.

Brenda Contay is a tabloid reporter known as the lighting rod. But she has grown tired doing cheesy stories about cheesier subjects. One day she learns that an acquaintance from college who joined the Peace Corps has died in Micronesia. Even more interesting is that he was a collegiate swim champion and he drowned. In her true anything goes style, Brenda decides to skip out on her assignment

This book was written by a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer and you can tell, besides the awesome dedication to all RPCVs, there are things only RPCVs have experienced and it was nice to see it in print. I couldn’t put this book down and I HIGHLY recommend it. Fun, fast read that you won't be able to put down! ...more

It was alright. Another book that I read for bookclub but wasn't crazy about. The setting and premise were interesting, but the characters and story were a bit flat. ...more
