Red Wolf - Liza Marklund

Publisher:  Atria
Pages:  400
Source:  Review copy from publisher
Genre:  Adult Thriller

When given the opportunity to  read and review this book I jumped at the chance.  Every now and then I have to read a good adult thriller.  Although I had not read the other books in the series I was able to jump into this one fairly easy.  I will need to find the others and catch up.  Marklund has drawn some realistic events in the life of Annika Bengtzon.    Ever on the look out for the story she stumbles into a ring of terrorism when she learns the journalist she was to meet is dead.  She also learns it was not an accident.   She must also deal with an unfaithful husband throughout all of this.  Marklund does not portray the character as one of those that “everything turns out okay for them”.  In this way we saw a realistic person with realistic problems we could identify with.  I have been reading up on this author and have learned this series has been long in coming due to translating it.  While we wait for the next one I will have time to read those that came before it.
