An incredible debut, Connor Sullivan’s geo-political thriller, Sleeping Bear, is so propulsive, you’ll forget that you need to go to work the next day, and just read on with each, more gripping page! My favorite combination – wilderness, survival and political intrigue collide with star turns by tech gadgets, Russian scientists & Putin himself, but with strong character development of the flawed, but resourceful American Gale family. We first meet grieving youngest sister, Cassie Gale, as she ventures out solo in the Yukon wilderness trying to run from past demons. But since this is a first rate thriller, those demons and plenty more within her complicated family, propel this action-packed, spy-laced adventure into glorious view. Pick this up and call in to work! - Reviewed by Maureen
