January’s title is Submergence by J.M. Ledgard.
This is a story featuring glamorous James More, an English spy and descendant of Sir Thomas More, and Danielle “Danny” Flinders, of Martinique and Australia, a sexy oceanographer and biomathematician. They meet and fall in love at a small, charming European hotel just before Christmas. As the tale begins, More is a prisoner of jihadists in Somalia, while Flinders is on a scientific mission on the Greenland Sea, exploring deep-sea vents. At times silly, and at others brutal, beautiful, and extraordinary! (Booklist.)
- This book is often described as a spy novel. Is it being told though James More’s voice or is someone else the narrator?
- Does it include silliness like a James Bond spy novel?
- What are the elegant parts of this story?
