Absolution by DV Berkom

Wow, just wow.  That's it, done: review over. Nothing more to say...just wow!

Speechlessness aside, Berkom has pulled it out of the bag again with her female Bond: spunky heroine, Leine Basso. A white-knuckle ride from start to finish in her quest to find and end one heinous life-devastating terrorist. Enough is enough: Salome has to be terminated. But this is a cat-and-mouse game. Salome has her own plans for the Leopard, Ms Basso. Everyone Leine has ever loved is in danger.

There's no time to breathe in this gripping thriller. What I love about Berkom's writing is that you never feel you're in a book. It's so descriptive, so fast-paced you feel you're watching, if not in, a movie. Now, there's an interesting question: why on earth has no one snatched up the Basso series and film-scripted them? They'd give the Bond movies a run for their money, without a doubt.

My only complaint about this book is that it's so engrossing, I finished it too darned quickly. There's always a gaping hole waiting to be filled by the next Basso adventure.

Hurry up, Ms Berkom!
