The pace of this story moves along rapidly. Elly comes up with lots of tactics to avoid being found and this makes interesting reading, with the suspense building up as her investigations reveal more and more about the deception she is caught up in. The settings in Melbourne and Sydney are genuine and anyone who has travelled to those cities will recognise the well-known locations. I couldn't put this book down as it got near the end setting up a climax revealing Elly's pursuer and his motives.
A little bit of trivia - Jenny Spence is the wife of Bruce Spence, the New Zealand-born actor who has appeared in Mad Max and Star Wars movies. There's an interview with the couple in the June edition of Good Reading magazine which you can read through our digital library or in print at a number of Auckland libraries.
