Sexy, sad, breathless, a memorable tale of lost souls caught in a spider’s web of their own making.

Synopsis

I Was Waiting For You by Maxim Jakubowski

A young Italian woman flees her home in Rome and gets involved with the wrong man in Paris

Cornelia, the fearless stripper and killer for hire, who proved such a hit in previous novels, is back and on another mission to kill.

As the two women’s paths intersect, an English crime writer down on his luck is mistaken for a private eye and goes on a quest for a missing person

From New York to Paris, and then on a thrilling journey through Barcelona, Tangiers, Venice and then finally to a small medieval town outside Rome, the waltz with darkness of the three characters in search of love, lust and redemption becomes ever more poignant and mysterious.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
