I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. This sounds quite interesting, Olga. It would not be my usual style of book but I am finding that I am spreading my wings since I started reviewing books more often.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. Yes, it’s a great way to read about books that otherwise we might not have paid attention to, for sure. And I’ve come across some true winners. This book won’t change your life, Robbie, but it’s fun and entertaining if you’re looking for a fast-paced and light read. (I’d say it’s a good holiday read). 🙂

  2. I read this twice, and I am still thinking of the ‘Mission Impossible’ TV series. Not usually my sort of thing, though perhaps more emphasis on Bucharest as a location might have drawn me in further. It seems from the synopsis that it could have been set anywhere, and Bucharest was chosen as sounding suitably mysterious and ‘spy-like’. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. It does have a touch of the TV or film series to it, that is true, although the setting in Bucharest has a fair to do with some of the ins and outs of the story (including locations of baddies headquarters, and escaping through tunnels). It’s a bit difficult to discuss without giving the plot away, but that’s always the case with these genres. The wife also speaks fluent Romanian but that tends to be a standard in the genre as well. I hope you have a great week, Pete. (Tomorrow’s review might intrigue you more).

  3. Olga, thank you for your wonderfully thought-through review, and thank you for introducing your followers to my book.

    1. Thanks very much. My readers always enjoy a good story. It was a pleasure to meet your characters and to live an adventure in Bucharest. It sounds like a fascinating place. Good luck with the rest of the series!

    Thanks for this interesting review Olga. This sounds like an engaging read and one I’ll look forward to reading. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby. It is a light read compared to some of the books you read, but we all need a bit of light fun sometimes. 🙂

        That’s the truth Olga. 🙂

  5. Hi Olga. This really does sound fun and exciting. Ya gotta love a computer geek hero. 😉 Thanks so much for sharing your insights. It seems like you had a good time with the book. Best of luck to Scott with it. Hugs all around.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Yes, his skills turn up to be surprisingly handy (although I’ll keep my peace as to how). Have a great day!

  6. Great review! This seems like an exciting read. I do enjoy my share of spy/action/thrillers, and the idea of a kickass female lead with her husband as the sort of cool and geeky sidekick sounds like a lot of fun.

    1. It is! Yes, I love kick-ass female leads as well. 🙂

      1. Thanks for the review!

        1. Thanks, Vashti. Have a fantastic week.
