Totally Unusual Thriller!
Yes, the historical detail is so rich and colorful. Obviously, the author has experienced many of the settings in the novel firsthand, and it shows in his writing.
Jumping all over the globe, the author takes the reader on a wonderful journey through many lands, cultures and traditions.
It's interesting that he does so many voices and accents. He does carry it off well. As they say, you are participating in the "willing suspension of disbelief."
I loved his hanging out in Venice. I have visited it many times, and loved it more each time. It allowed me the opportunity to daydream about living there perhaps some day, even for a short while.
If you like historical novels, this one is for you. It's thrilling, chilling and of course, has an amazing ending- which I won't spoil!
I have read Currency, Sugar, now Delta. Can't wait for Motherland!!! Good Job L. Todd Wood!.

I thought the characters in Currency & Sugar were interesting, until I met Rafe. With a quick turn of events in his life. I was wrapped up in suspense until the end. Wood writes another great thriller.
The novel has a quick turn of events and abundant suspense.
Fortunately I had a long weekend to listen to the book.
Wood is a rising star.
