Last Dance of The Sugar Plum by Claire Davis and Al Stewart
Anton is Jonathan’s ‘keeper’.
Jonathan is a spy with a code implanted deep in his subconscious, so deeply he can’t remember—anything at all.
Anton is an interrogator intent on retrieving the code, whatever the cost.
But sometimes they dream of dark tunnels and locked-up rooms, and then they both scream.
Along comes Harry, who seems to have all the answers…but who is he, and which side is he on?
For many months, Jonathan and Anton live apart from the world in a hazy, dreamlike state, only interrupted by interrogations and a healthy fear of HQ. One day, they watch a dance performance, and memories begin to unwind… A ticking clock… Betrayal… Missions… Always the scent of oranges. But with clarity, comes a return of powerful emotions…
Last Dance of The Sugar Plum is an exciting spy thriller with as many twists and turns as a maze.
Unique and Intriguing
It will be incoherent... because.....read it yourself...
Let me see *eyes to the sky tap lower lip*
"Once upon a time......"
In the beginning I struggled through the lines...no walls to hold on to... all those fragments of sentences...All the punctuation marks were (for me) needful......
If you are reading and there is only one big question mark that's...mindfuck? Funny the ones who have written this do know exactly who-what-where-when-why. And me....I'm just trying to keep my head up.... what.the.hell.is.going.on....? Yah I'm not totally stupid...I know what I'm reading, but the who, what, where and why...?
You understand that I'm reviewing while reading....
Outstanding all those tressed sentences and almost a film noir ...
I make no sense I know.....
Anton, Jonathan, Harry, HQ, 42....
Fact: Jonathan knows a code, it's hidden
Fact: Anton records everything
Fact: Harry is a dancer
Fact: HQ watch
Fact: 42....is a number
Fact: Me...I'm loose
Fact: You...will too
(Gossip/fact :) Jonathan and Anton like each other....very much...thát i can handle....)
Then there was one sentence... I hoped it was the *pling* ......not really....but there was light at the far end of the tunnel.
But still in that tunnel.....It felt like there was a black and white movie playing at the background, a fast one and very confusing....really a great piece of work
Thrilling, suspenseful story and very unique plot, awful confusing yet it made sense....
It's also endearing, hopeful, it's grounding and gives faith in what lies in prospect and a reassurance who our saviors are !! Raise your glass!
An amazing quality of writing, unbelievable intriguing and frustrating at the same time.
I hope this review is just as confusing as i was while reading this story....then my job is done
And that's a compliment....or not....ha gotcha....or not....I'm loose....or not....;)
One thing I do know and that's a fact: Love is what counts....even in a maze
A mustread for the ones who love an intriguing, unpredictable read.
