Ransom gets himself into and out of trouble at an alarming rate

Decent plot with some excellent twists. Quick read.

I know Reich can do better than this, the concept is interesting but far fetched beyond far.

Spy thriller about a aid-worker who finds that his wife was involved in an international intrigue, when she presumably dies in a skiing accident. He finds that packages were delivered to her which leads him to another part in Switzerland to investigate this. There he encounters rouge cops who threaten to harm him and also incidences with spies, high ranking officials in the military of other countries, terrorists and terrorist plots involving today's cauldron of world events. An interesting take on the world situation as it exists today. Lots of action.

You will enjoy this book if you like international intrigue leading to bullets, bombs, and bodies. Jonathan is a doctor whose wife is killed in a skiing accident, and he becomes involved in a plot to destroy an airliner full of people and to attack Israel. It is fast-paced suspense with not much character development.

Good read but a little far fetched at times.

I really liked this novel. It was fascinating, although a bit predictable in places. I felt it was a real page turner, I finished it within a few day. I enjoyed it overall, but at times, there seemed to be a bit of unnecessary action.

Hitchcockian Thriller in which an ordinary man is drawn into the hidden world of counter-terrorism and all the deceit and and ambiguity that it offers. Some editorializing by the author on current events ala Tom Clancy, but a good read if you like this kind of stuff.
