Publisher's Summary

When fifteen-year-old American Hailey Portman goes missing in Switzerland, her desperate parents seek the help of their neighbor, Finn Harrington, a seemingly quiet historian rumored to be a former spy.
Sensing the story runs deeper than anyone yet knows, Finn reluctantly agrees to make some enquiries. He has little to go on other than his instincts, and his instincts have been wrong in the past - sometimes spectacularly wrong.
But he gets involved anyway, never imagining that Hailey's disappearance might be linked to the tragic events that ended his career six years earlier, drawing him back into a deadly world that has neither forgiven nor forgotten.

Complicated but pretty well done

First, the narration: Simon Vance at his best. Every writer of intrigue should want him to read his or her books. Excellent.

Then, the plot: Past and Present storylines that get complicated (twists and turns) within themselves and in relation to each other. What's great: the two storylines are interesting on their own (sometimes when there are two timelines, one is there simply for the other's benefit). What could have been better (ergo the three stars): some of the twists are so complicated that the author doesn't have enough time to develop the characters that come into the picture. Still, the overall was indeed four stars and I will definitely give this author another try.

Intriguing spy novel : a good book !

Past problems always catch up with you. Finn Harrington believes he has successfully retired from clandestine operations, but he is shaken when his neighbors' daughter goes missing. He finds out that the event is somehow linked to his past: he has been the subject of surveillance by a mysterious company with ties to his old agency.
The book is well written; a different twist to a spy novel that, after a slow start, keeps you gripped and becomes difficult to put it down. Characters are well shaped and the suspense is growing page by page.
The story has a few little spots that don't ring quite true and the main character is not utterly likeable, but , all in all, this is a very enjoyable reading.

Interesting story line

This is the second book I have listened to by this author. There's just enough suspense and a good solid story line. I like the English narrator too.
