Maya is a down to earth, well as a special-ops pilot perhaps not down to earth but more rooted in reality of a nitty-gritty nature person who may be suffering from PSTD. She is married to the scion of an enormously wealthy family and dealing with both a military snafu and the loss of her sister when further tragedy strikes.
The book highlights the difference between the well to do and the truly wealthy. It also explored the dangers and need for whistle blowing. The situation is not hard to imagine which is one of the reasons Coben's books are compelling. They are often not too hard to believe.
The plot was intricate and not immediately solvable.
This was a compelling book.
I highly recommend.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
