My Review: Where There's Smoke, There's Prometheus by Sara M. Barton
This has a complex plot that in many ways went over my head. I was trying to follow all the twists and turns I never really connected to the characters. I was surprised many times at where the plot was taken too. It has spies, violence and action. You never are sure who to trust.
I would not like to live that way.
Maddy Walker is a college student. One of her professors really works to draw her into his beliefs. Their is a lot of peace not war, anti government, psychics. Maddy wants to work with dying patients. If you did not agree with the professor you were kicked out of his class.
The setting for the most part was after Vietnam college campus during the cold war with USSR. With sleeper cells with a 50 year plan.
I can see how a lot of the issues of the 60's are still around with different agendas. anti-war at colleges, drug scenes, brain washing, sleeper cells, You can see history repeating itself in so many ways.
I liked Maddy but the other characters where all hiding agendas. Never really connected and cared for the others characters. Some of the characters that I did not like seemed to succeed in life.
I like Sara's mysteries and will continue to read her stories. If you like deep complex stories try this book.
There is a lot of violence but she rates her books PG. I agree it is not graphic in details of violence.
