A heart-pounding and exciting mystery…
O’Gorman seamlessly mixes authentic characterization and deliberate pacing with deft plot twists to deliver an exhilarating story of mystery, history, and family drama in her latest installment in the Rose Hawthorne series. Rose is still trying to come to terms with Bill’s death. When she receives Bill’s old letter mentioning a Triskelion symbol on a shard of ancient glass, she knows she must unravel the symbol’s mystery. With Holly and Samantha on her side, she sets out to travel through the jungles of Laos and Cambodia, unaware of the dangers awaiting ahead. The rich, engaging narrative jumps back and forth between the past and the present, keeping the tension high. The characters leap off the page, especially Rose, Holly, and Samantha, and the rugged wilderness of the jungles of Thailand and Cambodia compliments the story’s mystery element. While the fast pace and fascinating worldbuilding keep the pages turning, O’Gorman’s thoughtful exploration of familial ties, friendship, trauma, PTSD, courage, and resilience keeps the story grounded. A page-turning read that will keep readers’ attention through many twists and turns.
