Conspiracy in Kiev by Noel Hynd. This was my first long book on the kindle for pc app. I really wondered how my eyes would do. But, I’ve found that if I set my contrast all the way on low that the strain on my eyes isn’t bad. I can read for 1-2 hours at a stretch (about the limit of my tablet pc battery. Yep, I’ve finally found a use for the tablet feature!).
The book has 6,841 locations. I don’t remember any sex–although there are several scenes where the characters are in bars with women dancing, etc….–but there is some violece. Although, the voilence is of a “normal” nature and isn’t gratuitious.
What would a mild mannered FBI detective have to do with a Ukranian mob boss? What would both of them have to do with the President of the US? How does this relate to the famine in the USSR/Ukrane before WW2? And how do languages play into the mix? This was a good book that flowed fast and was fast paced.
