"the sound of red returning" by sue duffy

About the book: Fifteen years ago, concert pianist Liesl Bower witnessed the murder of her mentor, a Harvard music professor. The subsequent revelation that he was an intelligence agent working for both the US and Russia rocked her world. Now, the people behind Liesl's mentor's murder believe that she holds the key to the identity of a Russian mole in the Israeli government. Liesl's life is shattered once again, and she must work with the CIA to locate the information she didn't know she possessed—the fate of a nation is at stake!

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.
