Download The Last FlightTon is pressed and it s full speed ahead to the mostly riveting conclusion I feel I should note that after the initial piece of the novel s puzzle fell into place I easily predicted the remaining outcome and interconnections of the story Had my amateur sleuthing been unsuccessful I do believe I would not Fire on the Water have inserted the third mostly into this reviewClark s characterization ofer leading ladies though is phenomenal Claire and Eva live and breathe on the page They are strong savvy and flawed They Once Upon an Eid have scars and wounds yet to beealed They are both in dire situations that ave spiraled out of their control and you feel empathy for their plights Although it is mildly off putting that Eva refuses to accept any responsibility for er actions and often blames others for the circumstances in which she finds The Perfect Girlfriend herself Just sayin With Claire and Eva Clarkas written two extremely brave women who in the end do exactly what they at first believe to be impossible They use their brains their skills and their resources to create their own way out of My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel horrible situations setting all fear aside to do what is necessary to save themselves The Last Flight also brightly spotlights the obstacles and personal conseuences women face when sharing their stories of abuse even now amid the MeToo era It is sad that so much work still needs to be doneTo me Claire and Eva are the epitome of courage I would like to think I would be similarly fearless backed against a wall I would like to think I would dare to save myself Iope I would at least No I know I would Wouldn t I The Last Flight is a compelling thought provoking novel that raises important uestions and sends an empowering message It is a solidly written and formidable addition to what is undoubtedly an overflowing sea of thrillersChoose it Read it Experience what it means to be a ero unto oneself Bravo a perfectly constructed thriller that kept me fully immersed in the fictive dream This was due largely to the superior writing craft of the author There are two plotlines intertwined and evolve in alternating chapters both strong female characters well realized and easy to root for One is mostly backstory but is dynamic enough to old my attention The backstory is told in past tense and the forward motion story is told in present tense I was never lost or confused by the voices of these two very different womenThe premise I admit is a little bit sensational and coincidental but again the wonderful prose guided me through The premise is similar to Strangers on A Train as been used before by a number of authors El Leonard Stewart Woods are to that readily come to mind The author uses it only to set the stage and then delves into the backstory of the characters If this is a first book by the author then I can t wait for the next oneIf you like your thrillers economic and fast moving
