Josh Bartlett had figured all the angles, changed his name, holed up as a small-town features writer in the seclusion of the Blue Ridge. Only a few weeks more and he'd begin anew, return to the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut and Molly (if she'd have him) and, at long last, live a normal life.

After all, it was a matter of record that Zharko had been deported well over a year ago. The shadowy form John had glimpsed yesterday at the lake was only that --- a hazy shadow under the eaves of the activities building. It stood to reason his old nemesis was still ensconced overseas in Bucharest or thereabouts well out of the way. 

And no matter where he was, he wouldn't travel south over eight hundred miles to track Josh down. Surely that couldn't be, not now, not after all this.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

This is definitely an intriguing mystery read. This is a new author for me so I am just meeting Josh. He is hoping to settle down in North Carolina instead of staying in Connecticut where he grew up. Instead of a fresh start he is traded by his past after a shadowy figure appears that looks like someone who should never be anywhere close. As the questions start piling up Josh finds it necessary to go back to his hometown in search of some answers. He ends up with much more then he expected leading us to a suspenseful mystery that really keeps you guessing making for quite the enjoyable read. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
