Great series, wonderful characters and plot twists
Overdue is Book 4 of the Ash Suspense Thrillers that has a Dash of Romance. Having read previous stories in this wonderful series, the stories kept me turning pages and Overdue was no different. Just when you think Ash will resolve one issue another springs up.
Even though I knew Ash and her boyfriend, Michael, from a previous book as talented software engineers in the world of virtual reality, this book can standalone. Michael and Ash left the Russian mobster, Vlad, in a coma, in prison, luring them to believe she was safe. This thriller combines dealing with the problems the COVID pandemic requires while trying to avoid, a Russian gangster who escapes prison and is out for revenge, recovering her stolen identity which could be from a woman Ash and Michael found unconscious on the beach and helped to a hospital.
This author knows how to ratchet up the Intensity with the turn of each page throwing danger after danger in Ash’s path. Contrasting the physical and electronic issues that continually pop up with the loss of one’s identity are the heartfelt and all to emotional moments we see Ash with Michael, her parents and her dog. I truly enjoyed the layers of plot twists, the mystery of how it was done and the suspense this thriller delivered.
The complexity of the plot, the deceptions Ash must deal with are all wonderfully written and the author’s mastery of keeping it easy to follow is not lost on this reader. There is always another twist or turn you never see coming. I recommend this book and the series. The narrator is very good and was easy to listen to so I could concentrate on the story.
