BOOK REVIEW: GIRL IN A BOX
Rei was out for her usual jog when she noticed someone running behind her. She started to get a little frightened when the man was gaining on her. She ran into a restaurant to ask for help but the two men there managed to go out the back door. She didn't know whether it was because of the way she looked or if a language barrier caused the problem. When she realized whom she was running from, she was quite surprised. The man chasing after her was Michael Hendricks, the chief of OCI's Japan desk - he was a spymaster.
Michael had a job for Rei and they had to get moving fast. He helped her pack. The job was for Rei to go undercover as a clerk in a Tokyo department store. The figures the store presented just did not seem right. This was a dangerous assignment but it had one benefit. Rei loved fashions and this was her chance to explore the latest and at the same time use her store discount. Rei had much to learn.
Things get very interesting for Rei when she hears conversations that are not intended for her ears and she crashes a meeting. Then the worst thing happens. Rei's cover is blown.
What happens to Rei? What is happening to the relationship between Rei and Michael?
Sujata Massey has done a wonderful job with the characters. Rei is a very likeable character and her cultural background really adds to the interest of the book. The plot is exciting and the reader will really feel involved in the undercover job in the department store. This is a fast paced story and one that will keep the reader turning the pages. This book is highly recommended.
