The only thing worth killing for is family.
Everyone said she had her father’s eyes. A killer’s eyes. Nadia knew that on the bitterly cold streets of Moscow, she could never escape her past – but in just a few days, she would finally be free.
Bound to work for Kadinsky for five years, she has one last mission to complete. Yet when she is instructed to capture The Rose, a military weapon shrouded in secrecy, Nadia finds herself trapped in a deadly game of global espionage.
And the only man she can trust is the one sent to spy on her…
Book One of Nadia Laksheva spy thriller series
66 Metres is the first book in the Nadia Laksheva spy thriller series and now I am left thinking why didn’t I read this book sooner! This is definitely what I call a crime thriller.
First of all I have to say that I love the fact this book features a strong kick ass main character….Nadia. Who we meet her at the age of 18 after her father’s death she learns that her dad was a killer. and her mother is dying. Nadia’s character is quickly built up in the first few chapters giving us plenty of background information. She finds herself working for Russian mafia Kadinsky for five years in hope that he will let herself and her sister free.
The question she keeps asking herself is can she kill?!
I was totally sucked in right from the start and devoured it one one afternoon, I found myself flying through the pages. Even though it is full of characters that you will like and dislike. I found this an easy, gritty, unputdownable read.
The author’s scuba diving experience is shown throughout the the plot. Transporting us around the world to London Russia the Isles of Scilly and Penzance in Cornwall….I do love that place! The descriptions made me feel right there in the story.
But making this a rather unique with plenty of action at sea rather than on land which is what you would expect to find in a spy thriller.
It is a fast paced, action thriller right from the word go……a brilliant start to a series. Which I highly recommend giving it 4.5 stars.
