Mike Wells has written a very exciting novel that is “unputdownable.” I literally had to force myself to stop reading in order to eat. The characters are likeable, the story line moves fast, and is an easy read. I will definitely read the second and third books of this series. I recommend this series set to anyone who likes intrigue, money, and love.
