I received this book courtesy of Mr. Freeman for the purpose of a fair and honest review.
Overview: It’s time to get back to Alton Blackwell. It’s been four months since his and Mallory’s Italian vacation. The wedding is soon to commence, and then they are off on their honeymoon. Remember Mastana from “Nefarious”? Well, she’s in trouble and needs Alton’s help. David and Fahima are joining them on this mission. Can the four friends find Mastana before it’s too late?
Story Telling: Mr. Freeman does a good job on this series. While it helps to read the books in order, it isn’t necessary for understanding. Alton’s flashbacks were handled in a way to keep confusion to a minimum.
Likes: It was something special to see all of these adults, who had nothing in common with Mastana–save that they spent time in her home country, or was a fellow countryman–, drop everything just to try to help her.
Dislikes: Nur Hanif was a cool guy. It’s truly too bad about his fate. Could his captain be the cause of it?
Favorite Character: Nur Hanif was a fun guy to follow. He was willing to do whatever he could to help Mastana.
Favorite Scene: I’m not going to cheat. IT’s too easy to say the point where Alton and Mastana see each other. I’ll go with Hanif’s story about how he and his wife met, and got married.
Conclusion: This is a great, easy, fun and exciting read. Mr. Freeman has outdone himself with this addition to the Blackwell Files. Especially since he accepts that good prevails, and friendships count for something. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
