November 2013 Indie Next List
“Kaaberbol and Friis are back with Danish Red Cross nurse Nina Borg, after her misadventures in The Boy in the Suitcase. This time, Nina has been following the case of Natasha Doroshenko, a Ukrainian woman who originally arrived at the crisis center in an attempt to leave her abusive Danish fiance. Now under arrest for his murder, Natasha escapes her police guard to get back to her young daughter who is also at the crisis center. As with the first novel, the pace is quick, there are surprises around every corner, and Nina is an imperfect hero, which makes her all the more appealing.”
— Mary Fran Buckley, Eight Cousins, Falmouth, MA
