The book for review is “Black Sparrow” by A. J. Griffiths-Jones. This falls in the genre of action and adventure.
Normally I start my review with the main character. However, this novel has a few
I will start with Farida who is a Muslim woman with a husband, two kids and who live in London. She is saving money on the side unknown to her husband. After years of marriage she has gained weight and is in a marriage that is another but loving.
Uzma, her daughter, is interested in art and also her art teacher. Stealing money from her mom’s secret account she runs away to Paris to meet up with her lover. The problem being she has not told him he is coming. Arriving at her destination her luggage gets picked up by another passenger. She has his now.
Colin Foster, who has mistakenly taken Uzma’s luggage, goes about his business and to his destination-Collette Joubert’s hotel. He wishes more than a friendship with her.
What Uzma has left behind is a hot mess. Her parents are frantically trying to find her and their shambles of a marriage continues to disintegrate.
The Black Sparrow soon has his next job. What he does not know or anyone else in Paris is that he was hired by Uzma’s dad to do away with her lover who has now disgraced his only daughter.
This book had me turning the pages quickly as I wanted to know what was going to happen next. The characters were delightfully done, the pace was amazing and the story was weaved exactly how it was suppose to be done.
The ending was perfect. I am so glad I got this book to review.
