Savannah Van Hopf, granddaughter of WWII double agent Rose Van Hopf, seeks out Kenneth "Wild Card" Karmody, Navy Seal, to help her find her kidnapped uncle in Jakarta. In a romantic subplot, we also meet Rose Van Hopf and her future husband through her memoir, which everyone in the book is reading: Molly and David Jones, who live in the wilds of Indonesia; Alyssa and her paramours--all are reading the book, all are seeking Savannah and Kenny. Norma Lana keeps the action humming but makes no attempt to differentiate the characters through intonation or accents. Amid kidnappings, jungle adventures, and frank talk about sex, Lana brings the action to its height and wraps up all the loose ends. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
