⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Maxence is missing, again. For some reason this time is different. His best friends, Arthur and Casimir are called right away, usually it takes more than four hours before they are called to come look for him. He was in Monaco and now he is missing.
Arthur, Casimir and Maxence are friends from school. They are rich, powerful, and very close. They will do whatever is necessary for each other. Maxence has angered more than one powerful person while in Monaco and now his life is in danger, but he will do whatever he can to help a school friend that is in desperate need of protection and help to escape.
This story was full of action, secrets, and money. The story leads the reader through the steps being taken by Maxence’s best friends to find him and make sure he is alive and safe. I give this story a 5-star review and look forward to Maxence’s full story. It’s a mystery to Roxanne, Casimir’s wife, what Arthur does for a living. The others know, but Roxanne has only guessed at it. I wasn’t clear on Maxence’s career, but it seems he is sent to different countries on a regular basis. He needs to stay out of Monaco for a while to stay alive, so he is in Paris. One night in the Buddha Bar finds him rescuing a woman that has had too much to drink and unbeknownst to Maxence, most of that alcohol was supplied by his two best friends’ wives.
