The second Zoe thriller.
Zoe is now painfully reminded why she did not get involved with other people, why it was better to be responsible only for herself. It was easy perhaps to blame John for making his own problems by not heeding her advice, but, just the same, she felt a small shred of responsibility for his current situation.
After learning that John has been kidnapped by Olga, Zoe first goes to see an old colleague, and Yuri’s friend, Dominica to interrogate her, then meets up with Yuri, and it does not end well for one of them. After telling her he’s the elusive Romanov, Yuri informs her of the fact Olga has taken John, and that Worthington is about to use John’s mother as leverage against her.
Not knowing immediately where Olga is, but believing she will not kill him because Zoe will come to her, she detours to take care of Worthington, having finally realized why he was searching for her. In another of her many disguises, room service visits his room, and Worthington gets more than dinner served up to him.
Of course, Yuri lies. He is not Romanov, and Romanov is not trying to kill her, but find her.
Who is her, well, you’ll have to read the book to find out.
And, as for Olga, well, hell hath no fury than a woman avenging a woman avenging her son!
