With a wife and a grown-up son, Pascual Rose lives a simple and quiet life working as a translator. But when he receives a text message summoning him to his own rooftop, he realizes, or maybe finally admits, that his life is not as simple and as quiet as he wishes it to be, and that the consequences of the decisions he has made more than three decades ago are now catching up to him. Not only do his unwanted visitors violate the privacy of his home, but they also threaten his family, and that doesn’t sit well with Pascual, notwithstanding the one million euros they offer in exchange for his services.
This is an interesting, intriguing, suspenseful, and action-filled novel that highlights the use of sophisticated technology and is set in various countries around the world. The author is able to keep the readers in suspense up to the later chapters making the book difficult to put down. What makes it more memorable, however, is how the author depicts something people, in general, fail to notice or are adamant to accept, that whatever we did in the past may have a tremendous effect in our future, that we can’t just do something egregious and get away with it. Finally. though Pascual Rose is the main character in the story, my favorite is Dris. He is smart, reliable, and dependable. All in all, this is a great read.
