"Betrayed by the governments who used his skills, freelance agent Oscar Reilly has only one choice if he wants to live - to take the authorities' offer of safe haven. The catch is, he has to accept a wife as part of his cover.
Anna is a young woman with a past of her own and secrets she has no intention of sharing with a stranger. Unexpectedly, she finds herself responding to this mysterious, attractive man. But is her trust misplaced?
The past cannot be kept at bay for long and Oscar realizes that his enemies are trying to flush him out. Determined to avenge the murder of his colleagues, Oscar embarks on a mission which may cost him his own life."

The author:
"Sandy McCutcheon was brought up in Christchurch, New Zealand, but since the early 1970s has lived mainly in Australia. He has worked in a variety of jobs, from sheet metal factory employee and swimming pool painter to actor and theater director.
Although he is best known as the host of 'Australia Talks Best' on ABC Radio National, Sandy McCutcheon is also the author of more than twenty plays. He has traveled extensively in Africa, Asia and Europe as well as living in Finland and Austria. He has twice won awards at the New York Radio Festival for radio documentary making, and been awarded the International Kalevala Medal by the Finnish Government for services to Finish culture.
A practicing Buddhist for the last twenty-five years, he is a passionate campaigner for social justice and human rights and is a strong supporter of Community Aid Abroad and Amnesty International, with a special interest in the issues of self-determination for Southern Sudan, East Timor and Tibet."

--> By the way, the author of this wonderful book, Sandy Mc Cutcheon, is also a BookCrosser, even if not the most active one: SandyMcCutcheon

02/06/2007: I really enjoyed this book - all of it - the story as well as McCutcheon's writing style. Will keep my eyes open for more of his books.

Read as part of the 1 Year = 1 Country Challenge for New Zealand.

Journal Entry 3 by k-j-h from Geelong, Victoria Australia on Tuesday, September 11, 2007

6 out of 10

Picked up a couple of months ago at meetup neglected to journal until now. (Only got around to journalling as it was intended to be released tonight).

Quite an interesting read, although I hated the ending. But it probably was true-to-life for someone as paranoid and controlling as the character involved ('bad guy', not the protagonist).
