Today it is my stop on the Blog Blitz for Desperate Ground by L.J.Morris. Thank you to Bloodhound Books and Sarah Hardy for inviting me. I am pleased to share with you my review of this gripping thriller.
Desperate Ground by L.J. Morris
When the secrecy of a nuclear weapon agreement is thrown into doubt, a disgraced intelligence operative is recruited to find out if the deal is still safe…
Ali Sinclair, wrongly convicted and on the run from a Mexican prison, is enlisted to infiltrate her old friend’s inner circle and find the evidence.
The only people on her side are an ex-Cold War spook and the former Royal Marine that was sent to find her. Together they discover that the stakes are much higher than anyone knew, and the fate of the world is at risk…
But when you live in the shadows who can you trust?
Ali Sinclair is a fiesty lady who sacrificed her freedom to help a friend. She escaped from a Mexican prison with the help of her friend Frank McGill. The pair then become involved in preventing a group carry out terrorism on a massive scale.
The book moves along steadily. I felt with all the action it should have been faster paced but it was missing something for me.
The main characters are Ali and Frank and although they were at the forefront all the way through the book I don’t feel I learned much about their characters.
Thank you to Bloodhound Books and Netgalley for the advance copy
