Shirley McLainabout this book: Samantha (Sam) Jensen works for her brother Allan, as his assistant. Allan owns IDEA (International Diagnostic Environmental Agency). This agency covers the world providing consultations, and investigations into any situation which affects the environment or the people.
After being kidnapped, Sam finds herself in a foreign country, without a memory of who she is. A full scale investigation is started by her brother Allan. The story takes you from Oklahoma to the continents of South America, Europe and Asia. It has mystery, action, romance, betrayal and murder, all tied together with Sam and her brother Allan.
You follow the lives of Sam and Allan as they try to find closure to Sam's kidnapping experience. You also follow each of the criminals to the final outcome for each. Each character in the story has their own agenda, and trying to have those agendas agree leads to twists and turns you won't expect.
The Tower is great for any young adult reader who likes adventure, travel, and intrigue. It shows you glimpses of the world that you don't usually get to see. It took me about eight months to write this book and it was fun to do. I really enjoyed doing the research about the places that Sam and Allan visited.
I chose the cover because it showed an introduction to what was in the story. Just a little bit of a pretaste. I think the hardest part of writing the book was keeping the storylines straight. You had Allan continuing to work his business in foreign countries as well as coordinate the finding of his sister.
If you like adventure and exotic places then you'll like this book.
