Book Review: The Poseidon Network by Kathryn Guaci

Today on the blog, I’m pleased to share my review of USA Today Bestselling Author Kathryn Guaci’s latest spy thriller, The Poseidon Network (Ebony Publishing, 2019).

I first fell in love with Kathryn’s work when I read Code Name Camille, her novella that was part of The Darkest Hour Anthology. Her background in textiles and love of art and all things culinary are woven into her works, and I was hoping that I would get another cracking book. I wasn’t disappointed.

A cocktail of a book as worthy as those of the legendary Shepheard’s Hotel, The Poseidon Network is an intoxicating mixture of intrigue, danger, and passion with a side of bitters. It’s a decadent, gripping page-turner that lingers on your tongue long after you finish it.

Set amidst the cosmopolitan circles of Cairo and Athens and the harsh landscape of the mountains of Greece during the Second World War, The Poseidon Network follows journalist and agent Larry Hadley as he is sent on a mission to find the “White Rose”, the leader of the titled The Poseidon Network, a resistance group committed to sabotaging their German and Italian occupiers.

Larry soon finds himself in a series of mysteries as he unravels what happened to the White Rose and exactly what side his alluring wife/widow Alexis Petrakis is on.

What I loved about Guaci’s writing is that she weaved in such detail that made me felt I was right there amidst the action, and kept me reading all night. A perfect read for a cold winter’s night. Highly recommended.
