Not all ends rosy in this Thriller, but I liked that. The couple and the criminals learn lessons they will never forget. However, life goes on.
Mr. Fry's characters are engaging, exciting, and colorful. The background work of each country traveled by the characters is well-developed and easy to follow.
Ken Fry's novel is worth a few Russian rubles.
