Conspiracy in Kiev
Conspiracy in Kiev is the first book in the Russian Trilogy by Noel Hynd. We meet Alexandra LaDuca who is in her comfortable position with the Department of Treasury. Almost before she can believe it, she is working undercover with the Secret Service on an important mission in Ukraine. Once her adventure begins, the action doesn't stop until she's crossed several continents and experienced enough danger to last a lifetime. She meets many people and doesn't know whose side any of them are on. Sometimes, she's not sure which side she's on. Her life is changed forever by what happens and she if forced to reexamine her faith and all that she has ever believed.
I highly recommend this book to someone looking for political intrigue, adventure, mystery, and suspense. I actually read the second book in the series, Midnight in Madrid, first, so I was excited to go back to the beginning and see how it all started and I was not disappointed. LaDuca and the other characters are a mix between well developed people and stereotypes, but no one was so over the top as to be unbelievable. I really enjoyed Hynd bringing in real world events. If you're looking for a gift for a reader in your life (or yourself), check it out!
