Series: The Neve & Egan Cases
Summary: Alexandra Neve is a student at University College London whose world suddenly falls apart. When her best friend jumps from the university’s rooftop, she can’t stop herself from asking, ‘Why?’ The police rule her friend’s death a suicide and for them the case is closed — so whom can she turn to for help?
Sometimes the person you need the most is the one you least expect to find, and in this case it’s none other than Ashford Egan, a blind middle-aged history professor, who’s more willing than most to listen to what she has to say.
Neve and Egan are as different as they come. She’s restless, careless at times, and fearless when the need arises, while he’s almost the complete opposite: a deep thinker with an analytical mind, a highly rational and collected individual.
As they enter the violent world of the Russian mafia, they must overcome their differences and learn to work together. It’s their only chance if they want to survive.
This book grips your attention from the very beginning until the end. Alexandra does not believe her friends death is a suicide. She takes it upon herself to find the truth.
Alexandra finds an unlikely ally in her search. Her History professor Ashford Egan is helping her. Not only is it unlikely a college professor would help, Ashford Egan is blind!
As the search goes on they find out they unwillingly got involved with the murder, mafia, and Russian mail order brides.
This book is book 1 in the Neve & Egan series. I give this book a 5 out of 5.
