As I was cruising through book choices from my library, this book was listed as a mystery thriller, and while I hate to admit it, when I first downloaded it, i thought it was the book that the movie that came out a few years ago was--how wrong I was (and happily so)!

This story is the story of how being in the wrought place at the right time can drastically change your life. For Paul, an American doctor from LA who is visiting Paris for a conference, it is the right time and place. However, for the contract killer who killed Paul's father years ago, who is having a cup of coffee after work in the same cafe as Paul, it is definitely the wrong time. Paul recognizes this man who killed his father in front of him and immediately attacks him. The waiters obviously don't know what provoked this attack, and stop him long enough for the killer to escape.

This is merely the beginning for Paul, however.

He hires a detective to find out who this man is and vows to kill him. What he doesn't know, however, is that there is way more to the story than just this man. There is a conspiracy afoot--that will cause Paul, his newly found love interest, international police, a lot of heart pounding excitement. This was a book I didn't want to put down. A very good read! ( )

Calling this a fast paced thriller is like referring to Scarlett Johansson as a blonde actress. This is thrilling and chilling, a pulse-pounding page turner, if I can use a cliche. The characters might be stock, but the plot is unique and possibly even plausible. Loved every single suspenseful scene. Grabbed me from the beginning and refused to let go. ( )

I expected more of this one, but after a few chapters I still felt no interest in knowing what would happen, so I figured I better drop it while I still could. However I have to give this the benefit of the doubt because I've been rather uninspired to read lately, so maybe that influenced my lack of interest. ( )

Het boek heeft bij lezen diepe indruk gemaakt, dat weet ik nog. Maar hoe en wat verder? Dat niet meer. Dus: herlezen en dan een review schrijven. ( )
