Excerpt
The most exciting part of the book is when Vince confronts Ray to tell him he knows he is the spy. Ray pulls a gun out and points it aiming at Vince’s face. Vince quickly turns the light off and hides. Ray shoots than turns the light back on. He notices that he didn’t shoot Vince and that he is still hiding in the apartment. As Ray walks past the couch Vince jumps up from behind it throwing him onto the ground and knocking the gun out of his hand.

Review

The only thing I would change is at the end of the book it ends to fast and doesn’t really explain everything I was thinking of. Other than that it was an awesome book.
