In The Bucket List, undercover FBI agent, John Adderley, is put into the witness protection program in his hometown in Sweden. He needs to return to the US to testify once the drug cartel’s trial begins. Meanwhile, he investigates a ten-year-old Swedish cold case where the body of a heiress, Emelie, was never found.
The Bucket List is an overly long thriller that doesn’t start to pick up the pace until the halfway point. TBH, I am not sure I would have kept reading if this were a library book rather than an advanced reader’s copy. However, the ending does make up for the slow start. Hopefully, this issue is a first-in-the-series issue that won’t occur again. For this particular book, 3 stars.
Thanks to Abrams Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
