I'm reading an action adventure, "The Hunt for Atlantis", by Andy McDermott. The quote is from page 56 in the large print hardcover.


Living in New York, Nina was no stranger to threatening-looking characters, but there was something about this one that made her nervous. She looked up the street at the approaching traffic, but kept the man in the corner of her vision.

  12. But is he a good guy trying to be discrete or a bad guy out to do harm. Very curious. I think I'd enjoy this book.
