PRETENSE - IMBROGLIO TRILOGY (VOLUME 1)
By JOHN DI FRANCES
PRETENSE, reads like a page torn from today’s newspaper, set amid the anti-EU sentiment currently sweeping across Europe. This first book of the IMBROGLIO TRILOGY opens in the Slovak Republic with the assassination of the Prime Minister. From there it moves to Poland with a second assassination only days later. However, the story is far more than just action.
Characters are well developed and multi-dimensional. Although the assassins, two men, and a women, are clearly evil, they are also interesting and in many ways likable, each having his or her own unique personality quirks and each a back-story, which is developed throughout the course of the book. The investigators comprise a team from multiple countries and the national dynamic as well as that between the sexes, adds color and humor. PRETENSE is at its core a story about people. It also raises moral questions, such as the difference between revenge and retribution, when justice is unavailable.
PRETENSE ends with a twist you will not see coming and sets the stage for THE BAIT! the second book in the trilogy.
