Review: Last Dance of The Sugar Plum by Claire Davis and Al Stewart

Last Dance of The Sugar Plum



Jonathan is a spy.

Anton is Jonathan’s ‘keeper’.

Jonathan is a spy with a code implanted deep in his subconscious, so deeply he can’t remember—anything at all.

Anton is an interrogator intent on retrieving the code, whatever the cost.

But sometimes they dream of dark tunnels and locked-up rooms, and then they both scream.


Along comes Harry, who seems to have all the answers…but who is he, and which side is he on?



For many months, Jonathan and Anton live apart from the world in a hazy, dreamlike state, only interrupted by interrogations and a healthy fear of HQ. One day, they watch a dance performance, and memories begin to unwind… A ticking clock… Betrayal… Missions… Always the scent of oranges. But with clarity, comes a return of powerful emotions…

Last Dance of The Sugar Plum is an exciting spy thriller with as many twists and turns as a maze.




This was odd, there are few words to explain without giving spoilers away. I felt a little lost at the beginning and a little more all along, but it was good because it help keeping the mystery hidden, or the mysteries since there is a lot of things to discover here, such interesting twists, I really loved how everything went.

The plot is definitely intriguing, the pace alternates between some slow parts and some a little faster. I’ll have to admit that I wasn’t as fond of the main characters as I have been in other books from the authors, but nonetheless they are very likable and other reader might love them more than I did. There was one character that, unlike the others, got my heart, I’m not sure if he was supposed to be likable, because he had a great ability to be so annoying, but somehow Harry was the one I liked the most.

It was a very good book, although it sort of fell short at the end. I liked for most of it but really didn’t liked the end, I think there was something missing, some of the events were great and I loved them, but I’m still thinking some other parts should gone a little different. The book in general was really good, and I can’t recommend it enough, not only this one but any other from the authors.
