#BookReview: Beyond the Pale (A World of Spies Mystery #1) by @clare_odonohue @midnightinkbook

Synopsis: Married college professors agree to help Interpol in Ireland, but a simple errand leads them into a deadly criminal enterprise

It's a simple, twenty-minute job. At least, that's the pitch from Interpol to married college professors Hollis and Finn Larsson. 

Going undercover to procure a priceless rare book manuscript means an all-expenses paid trip abroad. 

A little danger thrown into the mix may even spice things up.

Soon after landing in the Emerald Isle, they realize the job is anything but simple. Their contact is a no show and they're left with fifty thousand euros, some serious questions, and a possible death threat. 

Ducking and dodging their way across Ireland, Hollis and Finn must hunt down the priceless manuscript and a missing agent while trying to stay one step ahead of a dangerous and unknown enemy.

"Plenty of thrills and hints at an exciting future for the reluctantly daring duo."―Kirkus Reviews
