determination to protect her son at all costs takes her deep into a conspiracy much nefarious than she ever could have imagined, making her ultimately choose between her duty to her country or her duty to her son.It s a fine premise, but it doesn t break any new ground and the writing leaves a lot to be desired Thrillers are a dime a dozen, so when I sit down to read one, I want it to really stand out above the rest This one does not The prose is extremely fast paced and plot driven, with lots of dialogue While this makes for a quick and easy read, there s very little character development aside from some cliche flashbacks to Steph s past that establish her as a Strong Woman.And the plot itself is pretty convoluted There are twists, mostly for the sake of there being twists The Russians are somehow involved, lending a topical element I was initially intrigued by the idea of a mother questioning if she really knows her son and being put into a difficult position of wondering what he might be capable of, but none of this is really explored with any nuance And frustratingly, Steph s character arc ultimately puts her in the same position of weakness that she worked so hard to overcome.If you love thrillers and don t have very high standards for them as long as they hold you re attention, you ll probably enjoy this just fine Just don t expect much else flag 5
