My take: The Sound of Red Returning is an intriguing, action-packed story that kept me guessing. I enjoyed the twists and turns, and I never quite had everything figured out! I didn't ever fully engage with it, though—in part due to the vast number of characters. I knew the facts about them—author Sue Duffy did a good job of fleshing out their backstories—but I didn't really care about them. I guess I connected intellectually but not emotionally.
I really liked the plot, and I think it would be a great movie—a tense political thriller. As a book, though, I have to give it 3 out of 5 stars.
