Weaver’s Needle is about two recovery specialists (people who recover goods for people), who are pitted against each other to recover the Lost Duchman map. A wealthy widow, her husband was killed, after coming into possession of the map. She calls on two people, Landy and Nicholai, to retrieve it, with a promise of a $50,000 fee to go to only one of them.
I rather enjoyed this story. It went along at just the right pace, maybe just a tad fast. The weaving of the words creative a pictorial display in my head as I followed along with their adventures. I did like how real each of them were.
Only things, when I think about it, where I didn’t per se have closure, was regarding the financial issues between Landry and Nickolai. Plus, I think the end of the book just felt a tad too rushed. There was plenty of drama and that’s what kept me intrigued.
I believe this book had the possibility of being much longer and therefore, the further exploration into the characters and the side stories that played a part in the story. Much editing was needed to bring it into this nice compact book, and while it still did well in telling the story, as much as I hate to admit it… I think more storytelling would have risen this book up to superb status.
All in all, I did enjoy this book and will enjoy keeping it on my shelf of books to read again.
I did receive this book complimentary from the publisher, Barbour Publishing. All opinions are my own with no requirements to post a positive review.
