Amber Stone Agent Zero by Amina Warsuma is a masterful blend of sleuth, espionage, and terrorist thriller featuring Amber Stone. Working for the DEA in Colombia, South America as an undercover agent, Agent Zero faces complex situations and meets with characters driven to the extreme by the injustice of their pasts. Having a dubious past herself, how can she reconcile the ethics of her work with a past that continually haunts her?
The author has a wonderful sense of setting and weaves focused scenes that take readers across well-painted landscapes, making them visualize the action as it evolves through space and time. The references to political conflict are compelling and the apt descriptions of both characters and aspects of the setting give the writing an atmospheric character that is, in itself, a huge delight. Character is meticulously accomplished and I enjoyed that the protagonist gets into very tight spots where she has to make split-second decisions. The sense of danger is imminent and at every turn of the story, the reader is hoping for the worst not to happen. Agent Zero is sophisticated and her growth throughout the narrative is interesting, each layer of her personality revealed one at a time.
Amber Stone Agent Zero is gripping, exploring the psychology of a covert agent and a character whose destiny readers want to know. Amina Warsuma's prose is elegant and it is packed with attention-grabbing, humorous, and unusual descriptions. The author uses suspense, unique and powerful storytelling skills, and a tight plot to keep readers captivated throughout the narrative. It's a great story of espionage.
