A USGS team is murdered as they are placing instruments on a volcano that is about to erupt. The photographer accompanying them is abducted and held for ransom. She is the lifelong friend of Donovan Nash and of course he goes to the rescue.
The story is a fast-paced thriller set in Guatemala. Plenty of action in the middle of earthquakes, volcano eruptions, shootings, chases on land and in the air… It kept me reading. I liked the characters, tough and determined but with heart.
The thing that always amazes me about some novels, movies, and TV shows is the seemingly coincidental connections between characters and events from the past and present. This book is full of them. It appears everyone in the book, good and bad, is connected in some way to Donovan Nash’s past.
I’m not complaining. I’ve been known to write a few such instances into my own books. J
