Thank you for stopping by as I share my review for The Janitor and The Spy by S.W. Ellenwood as part of the blog tour today! First of all though let’s take a look at the description for the book…
Baby wipes are not the best at cleaning up blood or what happened to Thornhill in Amsterdam.
They told Thornhill it would be a simple spy mission that he was more than eager to take on, but of course, it wasn’t.
It didn’t take long after meeting the contact for Thornhill to question if he or anyone else connected to him was going to be able to make it out of Amsterdam alive. Passing strangers on the streets became potential hitmen and dinner with criminals became safe heavens as Thornhill seeks to find answers from an old man named Golay.
Well this book took me on quite a journey and before long there was danger at every turn. Then if you add in a pretty fast paced plot it easily kept me turning the pages, especially near the end. Even though this book is a novella there is quite a lot packed into this story as we follow Thornhill on quite a tricky and dangerous mission. I think because it is a novella you only get a hint of his character but what I did see made me want to catch up with Thornhill again. I also found that the short and snappy chapters were perfect at keeping the momentum going.
The Janitor and The Spy also managed to have a couple of interesting twists along the way which helped to set up the next book nicely. The ending definitely left me wanting more and I’m looking forward to seeing what will happen next!
With thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources and the author for my copy.
