Devil’s Ledger: An International Banking Spy Thriller is a work of ﬁction in the thriller, action, suspense, and mystery subgenres. It is intended for the general adult reading audience and was penned by author Lorraine Evanoﬀ. Part of the Louise Moscow series of novels, this particular tale is set ten years after one of her previously solved murder cases, and it sees Louise working for ﬁnancial crimes and dying to get back out there into the espionage world. All clues point back to fraud and corruption, but what Louise doesn’t bank on ﬁnding along the way is an enigmatic and terrifying adversary who has mastered the Russian Dark Arts.
Author Lorraine Evanoﬀ delivers everything a sophisticated reader of mystery and spy ﬁction could possibly want in a novel. Think Bond, without the misogyny or needless bloodshed, or le Carré without the endless droning prose, and you’re halfway to the genius of Evanoﬀ’s decisive, intelligent and well-balanced style of spy writing. The rest comes from a sense of urgency and relevance in all the right places, keeping readers on track with essential details and tense plot twists at just the right moment. Layered on top of this we have the cinematically described scenery of exotic vistas and dangerous situations, as well as the in-depth portrayal of the character that sees you really feeling for Louise. I had a lump in my throat every time she was in trouble, the danger felt so real.
Overall, I would highly recommend Devil’s Ledger for mystery and thriller fans seeking their next high-quality read.
