Review: Spanish Dagger (China Bayles #15)

User Review  - Megan Bodwell - Goodreads

I love China Bayles. This installment of the series seemed to go back to its roots a bit, focusing on China and the story concluding in a surprising, yet logical way. Reading these books are comforting. You can pretty much be assured of who are the good guys and who are Expendables. Read full review
