Vacation Read #3

In BLINDFOLD GAME, by Dana Stabenow, a husband-and-wife team--CIA operative Hugh and U.S. Coast Guard officer Sara--must stop Asian terrorists in the north Pacific. The entertaining action takes us to Thailand, Korea, Hong Kong, and Russia, and wraps up just off the Alaskan coast.

Stabenow is the award-winning author of fourteen Kate Shugak mysteries, three Liam Campbell mysteries, and three science fiction novels. The lady can write up a storm, especially the seas, the cold, the winds and ice of Alaska.

It is tribute to Stabenow's impressive writing skills that The Famous Author and I skipped so little of this book's omniscient POV passages. This story would have placed higher in the week's rankings, and we would have cared more about Sara and Hugh, however, if Sara talked more, the author less.

Just Our Humble Opinion
