Giving it 5 stars which is a lot for something subtitled "a love story". I don't care much for love stories as a general rule, but got this one because it was by one of my favorite authors. Kiana Davenport is good.

It is, indeed, a story about human love against a backdrop of CIA, Russia/Chechnya, terrorism, etc. The love theme is varied, specific, generational, encompassing the world from Washington DC to Sochi and the Black Sea. (Not about the olympics! :D) The book explores love as motivation, action, human need, religion, and relationship. I would read this again.

Our hero is a CIA agent searching for the evil guy who killed his mom and grandparents. The action ranges from Southeast Asia to the US and ends in Russia. All the characters are well-developed, three dimensional people. All the action is believable. This alone makes the book amazing. I do love books that are character driven. The simplicity of the plot is deceptive. The themes of the book are complex and human. No spoilers...I hate spoilers...and nearly every action carries weight.

The characters grow and change throughout the book as they learn to understand themselves and the world more deeply.

I looked into a lot of her facts and research...all sadly true. There is evil in the world...but there is also love of many kinds on many levels. Highly recommended.

Characters well-developed and complex. Story well-constructed and complex. ( )
