I need to start my review with this, then I will move on. Dan Walsh's first two books blew me away, they were awesome, so I was expecting great things from this book. And eventually we got there. This book started so very slow for me, in fact if I had followed my normal rule of thumb of only reading to about page 75 before giving up on a book, I would have never gotten to the good part of this book. Once you hit around the hundred page mark business picks up.
Michael Warner has always wanted to be a writer, but he has huge footsteps to follow in. His grandfather was a world renowned author, and he has made a fortune with his many books. However he has now passed on and has left his fortune to his family, and Michael inherited his grandfather's home in Charleston, but he inherited much more than that. He inherited an unpublished manuscript. He is sure that the fans of his grandfather will be thrilled with one last novel from their hero, but Michael is not sure this is something he would like to have published. After reading the manuscript he realizes that there is much more to the story, than a simple manuscript, there is real life espionage, danger, secrets and a love that transcends all of that, while all common factors of his grandfather's writing, this story is different and it will take the family deciding what is to be done with the manuscript.
This was a great story once I got past the slow part, I couldn't put the book down. There were some parts that were rather predictable, and some that were just in your face surprises, most definitely a book to read. Because of the slow start I have to rate this book a 3 and half star book, I am afraid many people will put this book down before they get to the good part. 344 pages US $14.99 3.5 stars.
