The Puzzle Pieces are Starting to Fall into Place!!

Another "gotta read" by Ace Collins. The puzzle pieces of this WWII serial mystery are beginning to fall into place, which made me totally fall in love with the series all over again! After the long hiatus of several months, I thought it would be very difficult to re-enter this world of espionage and quick moving action, but Collins does a great job of pulling the reader in, in spite of him/herself.

We get to see Helen and her team of FBI workers, frantically trying to sort out WHICH Fister is the the "bad guy" (or are both the twins the bad guy) and WHERE is the one they really want? WHY do the Germans want Fister so badly, anyhow? What is his intrinsic value to them?

What valuables are the Germans trying to steal from the US, and where are those items? And, as always, there is a good-sized cast of characters. Some are obviously good, some are obviously bad, and some are yet to be determined. Who is on what side, and are some on their own, mavericks, playing both sides against the middle. That's what makes it fun. Somehow, Collins can take this premise and these characters; twist and tweak here and there; and come up with something new and exciting every time! Well done!!

Some favorite quotes: "For all I know, I might be immortal."
" It's not about who wins the war, it's all about who wins the peace."
"Men like you work for men like me, and they get dirty in the process. Sometimes they die. Men like me move people around like pieces on a chessboard. If we lose one or one breaks, we just get a new one."

This is a book for both women and for men. Great WWII action and fun. I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for an honest review. ( )
