The Catch, by Taylor Stevens, opens in Djibouti, Africa with Vanessa Michael Munroe working for a maritime security company. Munro is a woman with a tumultuous past and incredible survival skills. She has been mistaken for a man and is known as Michael. As the story develops, we learn there is much else that is not as it seems. Without enthusiasm she became part of the team hired to guard a ship heading for Kenya. The ship is hijacked, but not for the usual reasons. Even though she manages to escape, she is not safe. She undertakes the monumental and dangerous task of getting the ship back and settling scores with those involved. This exciting and well written novel holds the reader’s attention to very last page.
I received this book free of charge and I give this review of my own free will.
