Book Review: The Other Son



Title:  The Other Son
Pages: 388 pages
Publisher:  Crown Publishing
Publishing Date: July 21st 2015
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

This is a thrilling, fast paced story that you won't be able to put down. It has a million twist and turns that will have you hanging on for dear life! The author is a master at story telling, and creating thrilling drama. Because this is a review book, but the plot elements from book 1 were explained well enough that I could read it without being confused. Which was great.

This is an international organized crime, drug smuggling, weapons running, corrupt cops, and a single-mother just wanting her life back to normal story which is one of my favorites. 

The only downside is that I love a book where there is a protagonist whom I can identify with. I'm sure in this case there wasn't one. 



GOODREADS BOOK DESCRIPTION:


The exciting follow-up to The Andalucian Friend, a breakneck thriller that follows Sophie Brinkmann as she faces the consequences of joining Hector Guzman's crime empire

From the moment Hector Guzman entered a coma, Sophie Brinkmann has regretted joining his crime family. Hector's right hand, Aron Geisler, is doing all he can to keep the sinking ship afloat and keep Sophie in their steely grip. But when Hector's brother is murdered in Biarritz, Sophie gains the upper hand, and intends to use it. 

Sophie becomes a player in a game where the rules are constantly changing, where loyalty and friendship are rendered meaningless. In order to survive, she must look inward and find her inner darkness. If not, she will be swallowed whole by the forces closing in on her: vengeful mobsters, cunning detectives, charismatic arms dealers, and possibly her own son.

Note: I received this book free from Blogging for books, in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
