Oh. My. Goodness. How does Heather Moore write such complex stories? This is the latest in the Omar Zagouri thriller series and I think it's the most action packed of them all. For those who are new to the series they usually have 3 storylines--2 in the present going on in different parts of the Middle East (or wherever he and Mia are) that are tied together, and 1 in ancient times which connects with the present day storyline. The way Heather Moore does this makes for great storytelling.
Omar's in London trying to mix business--training a new agent, Joseph Bar, and bring down notorious art thief, Ehan Sayid, with pleasure--attending his cousin's (Chad) graduation from college, all in one weekend. Oh Omar, you should know better. It seems as if trouble follows you around. With all the action--shooting, a kidnapping, even rocket launchers I'm surprised Omar is still alive. Of course Mia's there to save his rear a couple of times.
Aamira is one of the main characters. There's not much I can say about her without having to post a spoiler alert. She's from Al Karak, Jordan and has been in London attending college where she met Chad, Omar's nephew, but goes back to Jordan after their graduation. I'd love a follow up book or novella about Aamira.
Eleanor's (Nadia) story is told from ancient Karak starting about 1187 A.D. and takes place during the Crusader wars. Her step-father was Raynald of Chatillon, leader of the Christian Crusaders and her mother was Stephanie of Milly, a wealthy French heiress. Eleanor's birth father was Humphrey III, Lord of Toron who died when she was a young girl. Her story is incredible. Her life took a completely different turn from what she thought it would be or planned it to be, not once, but twice in just a matter of months.
This is a fast paced story and I couldn't stop reading it; I wanted to see what was going to happen next to Aamira, Eleanor (Nadia) and Omar. As soon as I thought someone was safe, things changed. The characters are great and become real to me as I'm reading. I can't wait for Omar's next adventure.
The narrator is awesome. There were so many characters to voice and he did a wonderful job with all of them, even the women's voices.
