In Two Spies Too Many by Sandra Kostere, as psychologist Dr. Jeff Dylan takes an early morning run, he is looking forward to celebrating his fifth wedding anniversary to wife Rebecca. Unfortunately, Jeff never makes it home and his death, caused by a hit and run accident, goes unsolved. Two years later, his widow and fellow psychologist Dr. Rebecca Dylan struggles to pick up the pieces of her life. She takes solace in her work and conversations with her late husband. Then Rebecca receives a disturbing email and a confession from her director, Dr. White, that her husband's death could have been an assassination. He offers her the chance to find out the truth behind her husband's death. She agrees to the undercover assignment, not knowing the danger she is facing. When her friend goes missing and those close to her are murdered, Rebecca suspects everyone around her. During her investigations, she encounters many people who seem to want to help, but do they have a secret agenda to stop her uncovering the truth? As Rebecca begins to unravel the mystery, the true colors of those she thought were friends are revealed.

I absolutely loved Two Spies Too Many by Sandra Kostere but I would recommend you do not read it before you go to sleep as this is such a fast-paced story filled with intrigue and plot twists. The characters are believable and so realistic; even the minor characters have so much detail to their personalities. I loved how the characters' backstories were included in the dialogue and descriptive narrative too as this gave a greater insight into their behavior. As the characters were introduced, I was wondering where they fitted into the story. However, as the plot unfolded layer by layer, I realized each was vital to the story. The twists and turns throughout were continuous and just when I thought I had solved the mystery, another plot twist would occur. The tension was increased further by allowing the reader an insight into one character's agenda which the other character was unaware of. I loved the strong subplots, especially the relationship between Michael and Monica. The conversations Rebecca had with her late husband were heartbreaking and so well-written. I really didn't want this story to end and I hope there is a sequel as I would love to know what happened to Rebecca and the other characters. If you enjoy a story that is full of tension, intrigue, and conflict, then you would thoroughly enjoy this amazing book.
