Kent and Katcha: Espionage, Spycraft, Romance is an excellent new story by authors Larry and Rosemary Mild that is filled with intrigue and excitement and a good dose of romance.

The story is set in the year 1992 - the Soviet Union has fallen apart, but the danger is still out there and very, very real. Enter Kent Brukner, a newly qualified spy from America who lands himself in Moscow for his first assignment. Kent is supposed to enter a Russian Federation Army location and plant a bug so that the Americans will know more about what is going on. At first, Kent’s mission appears to be going well, but then everything spirals out of control, and Kent is arrested and sent to a prison far from civilization. He quickly learns that he needs to use his skills to find a way out of prison and back to the real world so that he can report on what has happened to him and find out if any part of his plan was successful.

When Kent finds a way to escape, he runs as fast as he can and ends up in a café in a small village where he meets Katcha and her mother. Katcha’s mother is from Great Britain, and her father is a Russian who is currently in prison for daring to speak out against the government. As Kent and Katcha find themselves falling in love and Katcha’s mother finds a way for her daughter to escape the life that she is leading, the two new lovers head out on a journey that, on its best day, looks daunting and nearly impossible. As they try to make it out of Russia and to somewhere safe, they are followed by Major Dimitri Federov, who is determined to catch the two and send them off to a Russian prison. As Kent and Katcha run and Dimitri fights to catch them, this story and the adventure take off and never stop.

Larry and Rosemary Mild have created a thrilling spy novel filled with great characters, lots of twists and turns, and plenty of romance thrown in to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The book is well-written, and the characters are extremely well-developed, which makes it perfect. Kent and especially Katcha are excellent protagonists who are strong and intelligent and a perfect foil for each other. The secondary characters in the story such as Dimitri and Sasha, a cruel and very intelligent agent working with Dimitri, add a lot to an already excellent story. The writing and the dialogue are both well done and keep the story moving from page to page without ever seeming unbelievable or boring. Kent and Katcha packs a whole lot of excitement and fun into its pages.

Quill says: Kent and Katcha is a lot of fun to read, and one cannot say that about a lot of books. It is interesting, exciting, and well-researched in terms of the spy aspect. I could see this one on the big screen, and it would be well worth it.
