so much fun; so thrilling! I love it, so far. I love Victor, everything about him--one of my favorite spies. he's busy planning a hit in Belgrade, at the point where I've left off. meanwhile, there's a big contract out on him as well, so he's hunter and hunted. he has already survived two incoming assassins--one male, one female. one is dead, one is still alive and will likely be back. great start to the book, those first few chapters, and it has stayed lively and suspenseful. I also happen to love the author's writing style, including the action sequences, which are easy to see in one's mind.
