Book Review: "Book 5: On Russian Soil" (Mike Wells)

Secret Service agent Elaine Brogan travels from her sheltered life in the United States to Russia to lay hands on Giorgio Cattoretti, who has managed to pull of the greatest art heist in history by stealing fifteen paintings by Picasso from a museum in St. Petersburg.

Now, Cattoretti has both Elaine and Russian law enforcement in close pursuit, and an agenda of his own to achieve that no one could imagine.

Author Mike Wells's Book 5: On Russian Soil is the next installment of his Lust, Money & Murder series of crime thrillers.

Readers who enjoyed following Elaine in earlier books will appreciate her prominent return in this one as she's drawn in to help capture Cattoretti and maneuver him (by whatever means necessary) across an international border so he can be captured.

But hers isn't the only point of view that carries the work. Cattoretti, too, features, as is, perhaps, fitting, given that his actions were what brought Elaine back to the fore in the first place. He remains a cold-blooded, manipulative killer, working just as hard to get his hands on Elaine as she is to get hers on him.

The climax of this fifth book in the series will leave readers breathless with anticipation for the sixth installment. My best advice: Trust no one, and expect the unexpected.

You'll still be caught off-guard.
