Desperate Ground by L J Morris
My rating: 4 Stars
After being wrongly convicted, former intelligence operative Ali Sinclair has been hiding out ever since her escape from a Mexican jail. Only good friend and ex-Marine Frank McGill knows her whereabouts. Meanwhile, Ali's friend Jo Quinn was seen with an arms dealer apparently connected to a nuclear weapons agreement. MI6 recruits Ali to spy on her friend for what could ultimately lead to saving the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. Ali is skating on thin ice while McGill works closely with her and does his best to protect her.
What I hated about this book: it was not my cup of tea. What I loved about this book: it was not my cup of tea. Forgive the dichotomy, because I’m ecstatic that I read this book! Desperate Ground is wickedly fast-paced. A truly exciting change of pace from my usual fare. It was a thrilling, engrossing, edge-of-your-seat read!
