Mayday, by de Campi, Parker and Blond, was a disappointment for me. I heard about this book on a podcast, and reviewer really loved it. I thought it was too rushed, and too complicated. Plus, to be honest, the smattering of Russian language and names threw me. I had a hard time remembering who was who, who was on what team, and what the ultimate objective was. Plus, I wasn't sure who the hero, or even anti-hero, was in the story. There is no character development on the two main characters, Rose and Felix. I never got an idea of why they do what they do, who they are, and I was left just not caring about them or their journey. I could understand what they were trying to do--make a fast-paced, action packed spy thriller with blood and sex and drugs. But in the end, it was a mess and I just didn't care about any of it. I won't read more.
