Star of the North by D.B. John
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoy a great story that uses current events as its base, add in politics and espionage and all my needs can be catered for. Did D.B John succeed with this recipe, yes he did. North Korea and the USA are at the brink of war and the author uses this to explore what life is like under this regime whilst delivering a thrilling political novel.
Jenna Williams joins the CIA an hopes that she might uncover the truth of her twin sisters disappearance 12 years previously. Now during a high level meeting in New York she meets Cho a representative of the North Korean government sent to lead their diplomatic mission. As we progress through the story with each event the dots are being connected and the tension is rising on how this will resolve itself.
This is a very skillful piece of work drawing on all available knowledge of the workings of this terrifying regime. A thrilling and revealing adventure into North Korea.
