More About the Author

Erika Mitchell was born in Orange County, California to a published author and an Anarchist's Cookbook aficionado. She moved to Seattle, Washington as a freshman in high school, where she promptly realized she owned just one pair of pants and that was going to be a problem in a place with an actual winter.

She graduated from Northwest University in 2003 with a degree in Psychology, which she has yet to use. After a brief foray into technical recruiting (a disaster), she found her calling as a writer and, wonder of wonders, was actually able to find a job where someone paid her to do just that as a blogger.

Blogging turned into writing novels, where Erika has found her niche in the espionage and thriller genre.

Erika currently resides in a small suburb outside Seattle with her husband and two children. For more information about Erika, check out her website at www.Erika-Mitchell.com.

I really enjoyed this book. This author has a way with words that makes her stand out in the vast sea of thriller writers. Most anyone can write an action/adventure thriller-type novel, but Erika Mitchell takes the genre to a whole new level with her refined literary prowess. Despite the ugliness of the subject matter (terrorism, kidnapping, etc.), the author finds a way to tell the story exquisitely. Well done!

Wow, this book kept me turning the pages and sitting on the edge of my seat. I found the plot to be refreshing, intriguing, and supportive of great character development. Erika is definitely an author I will be keeping my eye on. If you're looking for a thrilling adventure, this book is a must read. I'll be looking forward to seeing her next novel.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Tiffany A. Harkleroad VINE VOICE on May 20, 2013
Format: Paperback
For years now, Azzam has been spying on his boss for the CIA. Azzam works for a company that, on the surface, appears to just be an international conglomerate, but in reality, the company is redirecting funds to terrorist operations around the world. Azzam hates the fact that the company is responsible for the loss of innocent life, so he becomes an informant. When his boss begins to suspect there is a traitor in the company, Azzam flees London for America, inadvertently putting innocent lives at risk himself.

Typically, books involving espionage and terrorism are just not my thing, but this book really captured me from the start. I think these types of books hit a little close to home, and make readers think about all the hidden terrorist cells around the world; it is a little scary. But this book is well written. I particularly enjoyed the character of Azzam. I liked that the "good guy" is a Muslim born in Iraq. It makes the reader really think about how there are good people as well as bad people in all religions and ethnicities. I also like the complexity shown in the character of Shah (one of the "bad guys").

The only thing that was slightly niggling to me was the dialogue surrounding the police intervention; it seemed a little naive to me. At one point the cops even refer to the terrorists as "the bad guys". I cannot imagine a cop in a large city like Seattle would use that terminology. But that is a minor detail, overall I really enjoyed the book. The story was fast paced, and kept me engaged from the start. Fans of action, spy novels, and thrillers will enjoy this book.

I thought the book had a good premise, and delivered a fast paced, exciting story. Particulary well done was the climax of the book, which was perfectly paced and satisfyingly concluded.

When reading a book like this, it is easy to overlook character development. At its heart, this is an espionage novel. But, it is more than just an espionage novel. There is a level of character development, even in the "throw-away scenes" which makes the narrative interesting. This shows a strong attention to detail that the author has, and it makes the book much more compelling. Erika Mitchell is a fascinating young writer who has a strong narrative voice and a knack for how to write intense action sequences. I can't wait to read more of her work!

Loved this book! The plot twist was honestly surprising (very rare these days to find in a book). Would recommend this book to anyone wanting a solid mystery to read.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By The Eclectic Bookworm on May 29, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
The whole plot of this book intrigued me, especially because there is something about the conflict between the U.S. and the religion of Islam every day.

She also provides little bits of insight into each character and what motivates them to do what they do. She keeps up this relentless game of show and tell until nearly the final pages of the book when it all falls into place.

The characters are very three dimensional. Azzam is almost tragic in the way he risked his life every day for years in order to betray someone that he once viewed as a father.

The ruthlessness and inhumanity of these criminals is chilling. It seriously brought to mind the callous and evil way the 9/11 terror attacks were orchestrated.

The way in which the terrorists covertly carry out their activities is horrific. The entire set up of a company that funnels money around the world to fund terrorism is probably not far off from reality.

I'm not sure if this was the intent, but through this book, Ms. Mitchell portrays an individual of Muslim faith that is admirable, that goes against type and puts the little nugget of information in the reader's head that not all Muslims are hostile toward those who are not of their faith.

I have no other interest in this topic other than it vaguely relates to current events, and Ms. Mitchell managed to keep my attention and keep me turning the pages.

I appreciate her format for a thriller, just enough information to keep it interesting, but not enough for the reader to unravel the entire story until the final pages.

I appreciate the portrayal of Azzam, and I do believe that there are individuals out there who make the same sacrifices he made in order to protect innocent lives.

Overall, a great read that turns the reader's preconceived notions of terrorism on its head.
