Echo from Mount Royal by Dave Riese is a sweeping saga about young Rebecca who finds herself head over heels in love with Sol, a boy from a wealthy family. Told from the perspective of a much older 81-year-old Rebecca, she recalls, in vivid detail, the year 1951, when she was only 18 years old and falling in love for the first time.
Dutch citizen Peter van Wermeskerken has quite a story to tell, and he tells it with considerable wit, humor and style. In 1967, at the young age of 27 and with no formal education, he was recruited by the notorious East German spy agency HUV, popularly known as the Stasi, to work for them as a secret agent in the Netherlands.
The writing is confident, persuasive and highly literate. When there is action to relate, that action is effectively conveyed. On its own, the book is above average. If the sequel can deliver on its promise, the Nine Inch Bride series could well take its place among the great works of philosophical fiction.
While I prefer that the strength of the writing match the strength of the plot, I’m more concerned that the plot and the characters work together cohesively. In Shielded Past, they do just that. I was hooked early on, and I found myself reading for hours at a time at each sitting. A suspenseful read that’ll have you guessing right up until the end!
