BOOK REVIEW: “TWISTED WIRE” By Ray Stone
Reviewed by Susan Marie Molloy
Political intrigue, industrial espionage, and games played between M5 and MI6 are just the beginning to this thriller that brings the Herald’s political columnist, Enda Osin, into the vortex. Add Moscow’s fingers in the pie, a mole in the British secret service, and an enigmatic telephone call, and “Twisted Wire” becomes a thriller worthy of other great “Spy versus Spy” genres.
Enda Osin is a political columnist who, in this second of Ray Stone’s trilogy, becomes accidentally involved in a ginormous political scandal when he receives a mysterious telephone call from a seemingly wrong number. Enda finds himself caught in one of the most thrilling and nefarious adventures ever published in a novel.
“Twisted Wire” has richly developed, unforgettable characters. They are believable and three-dimensional. Ray Stone displays his talented ability to keep the story interesting and organized, while moving along quickly with just the rightly placed twists that the reader would expect. The dénouement is, indeed, a grand surprise, and I will leave it to future readers of “Twisted Wire” to discover it as I did.
I handily give five out of five stars to Ray Stone’s “Twisted Wire.”
