Monday Review: 1 book

This has been a relatively slow week in reading as I finished this one book...but I am in the middle of two others so there will be several reviews next Monday.


An Accidental American by Alex Carr (fiction thriller):

Story Summary in about 30 words: The story focuses on Nicole Blake, a world class forger who is just out of jail, and she is summoned by a US agent to help find a former boyfriend who is a suspected terrorist. She finds out that there is much more at play here and she is a target.

Rate of Interest: 26.7 pages per day (220 total pages)

Best Thing about the Book: The international flair is nice. The story bounces around from Beirut to the French countryside to Lisbon. The plot focuses on the today but the background, going back 20 years, is essential to find out Blake's importance in the bigger scheme of it all.

Worst Thing about the Book: The stories intertwine a little too often and some minor plots are left by the wayside. It seemed that the author wanted to wrap things up quicker than she probably should have...

Overall: It is pretty good. It is not a long book so if you are looking for a solid read over a couple of days, it can fill that void.
