Rules of Deception

Hallelujah!  I finally finished this book.  It was pretty good but contained just too much complicated political intrigue for my taste. 

Jonathan Ransom is a doctor working for Doctors Without Borders.  His wife Emma is the director of that program.  On a hiking vacation in the Alps, she falls into a crevasse and dies.  Shortly thereafter Jonathan receives a package addressed to his wife and he realizes she wasn't who she appeared to be.

His quest to unravel her past involves him in an international plot involving Israel, Iran, Switzerland, the U.S., and nuclear bombs.

I liked the parts with Jonathan but got bogged down in the technical parts.

This is the first book of a trilogy.  Will I read the others?  Doubtful, but you never know.

I'm of to Florida tomorrow to visit my mom who is in assisted living down there.  The airplance ride will give me some uninterrupted reading time.  I'm almost glad they don't serve meals anymore because that was so annoyingly disruptive to my concentration.

I can't read political books - they bore me to tears. I hope you have a nice visit with your mom Linda.
