Hostage: A Novel (The Fredrika Bergman Series) - Kristina Ohlsson

seems my initial impression, based on back-cover synopsis plus title, was correct--this Fredrika Bergman series entry will be the one that most resembles an Espionage novel. author has got her work cut out for her on two counts: the last Espionage-oriented novel I read called Hostage was pretty darn terrific, and even had some great Mystery-novel twists; and, this series has worked very well with whodunits and serial-killer plots, so the hope is that Ohlsson can at least match the stuff I know she does so well. although...given what's in her short Author's Bio, maybe she was meant to make this her best book ever.
