I had the pleasure of interviewing Noel Hynd on my radio show, “Kingdom Highlights” regarding his new book, “Midnight In Madrid book coverMidnight In Madrid” book two in The Russian Trilogy published by Zondervan.

Alexandra LaDuca is back.  This time she is recovering from the events of book one in Barcelona, Spain when the call comes in that they need her.  Seems someone stole a priceless art treasure, “The Pieta of Malta” in Madrid and the call has gone out to France, England, Italy and the U.S. to come assist in finding out who stole it and it’s retrieval.   Of course not everything is what it seems to be.  Bodies are turning up floating down glaciers rivers, those that want Alex killed are themselves killed and who really is this new character that is assigned to work with Alex in the recovery of the Pieta?  And how does Yuri Federov, the Russian gangster from book one,  fit into all this?  All these answers and more are provided along with non-stop excitement, plot twists galore and intrigue, danger and betrayal that are the trademarks of a Noel Hynd thriller.

Mr. Hynd does not disappoint us in this second outing and this time we have a an old-style private eye type mystery made famous by Dashiel Hammet and Philip Marlowe with Alex LaDuca in the role of the P.I.  This is an international, political thriller with the action taking place in Madrid, Spain and Geneva, Switzerland with spies, art thieves, terrorists and cold-blooded killers.

As with the first one don’t start this book late at night if you have to go to work the following day; you are not going to want to put it down.  We look forward to the next one and the new trilogy after that.
