Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Stephanie Patrick, alias Petra Reuter, is back and if you haven’t met her yet you are in for a treat, she is fab. This is classic espionage stuff with a difference and that difference is Stephanie, a female assassin. Through set-up, hostage taking, pursuit and show-down she is ace. You’ll love her.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

The Third Woman by Mark Burnell

The world isn't run by governments. It's run by corporations. In other words, everything and everyone has a price.

Stephanie Patrick operates under a number of names; Petra Reuter, known as a gun for hire, is probably the one she uses most frequently. She used to work for the government. Now she works for herself.

Robert Newman, who spends more nights at 35,000 feet than in his own bed, is an international troubleshooter. But twenty years at the top have still not purged for him the ghosts of the past.

A plea for help from an old friend draws Stephanie to Paris, where she narrowly survives a terrorist attack, an outrage that according to the authorities was masterminded by Petra Reuter. Betrayed in every way, pursued ruthlessly by a faceless enemy, her identity stolen from her, Stephanie seizes a hostage to give her a slim possibility of escape. But is the encounter with Robert Newman really just chance?

Hunted from Paris to Vienna, Stephanie and Newman are forced together to survive. Yet the more she learns, the closer Newman seems to be to the heart of the conspiracy. Stephanie becomes sure of only one thing: that the answers will lie with the person who she knows as The Third Woman.

The Third Woman is vividly contemporary, with a welcome return for a unique heroine.

‘Mark Burnell…is one of Britain's most accomplished thriller writers.' - The Economist

‘Mark Burnell brings the espionage novel right up to date…it makes an exciting story with more depth than the average thriller, and with some first-rate characterisation.' - Sunday Telegraph
