Title: Bai Tide
Author: Erika Mitchell
Genre: Espionage Thriller
After the events of Blood Money, CIA case officer Bai Hsu is assigned to a high-security private school for what he’s told is an easy assignment. Just a few months after he arrives, a hostile operative with ties to North Korea tries to break in to a school event, with motives unknown.
As his investigation progresses, he unravels a plot that, if not stopped, will result in the untimely and murderous deaths of tens of millions of people.
Bai Tide is Bai’s greatest challenge yet. A mission that will take him from the windswept beaches of San Diego to a whiteout blizzard in the foothills of Pyongyang, and make him question everything he thought he knew about working in the field…and about himself.
“Bai Tide” most surprised me with its cast of characters. I’d never expected to find such a diverse cast of people in one single book. Throw stereotypes out of the window, if you want to read this one, because the author far surpasses any stereotype and instead gives us characters who feel like real people. The action kicks off from the first page, and I liked the whole plot about having to infiltrate in a private school. The author and her series has a lot of potential, and I’m curious about the next installment.
