As usual, Mr. Smith gives us a great read! I have been a fan since I read his first book (I have read them all now). This one is his usual "edge-of-your-seat" writing. Aside from a few naughy parts (which I skip) this book is up to his usual standards. It does does throw several curves that threw me, as I wasn't expecting them! One thinks all is smooth sailing for the characters, but not so!
Mr. Smith is "my favorite" author (I have several, but he is the top). He has never disappointed me! I hope to read many more of his novels!
Also, at this time I want him to know how delighted I am that he has found his soul-mate and is living a life that is so fullfilling for him and his wife!!!!
