Thriller by Canadian

Finished December 31
Invisible Armies by Jon Evans
This book was recommended to me over a year ago and I finally got around to reading it. It was a great read, and despite being long (almost 500 pages) I easily finished it in one day. Despite being written by a Canadian, none of the action takes place here. Ranging from India, to Paris, to London, to the United States, the action keeps this book moving.
Danielle Leaf is the main character and has spent her life trying to figure out who she wants to be. Most recently, she has been in India, first working for a tech firm and then working towards a certificate as a yoga instructor. Doing a favor for a friend, by bringing a passport to a young Indian woman in a remote part of the country, she gets caught up in something huge. Waylayed by official looking men, she has her passport and other possessions taken from her and is locked up in a small building. As she escapes, with the help of another prisoner, she begins to work with others to figure out what is behind the intrigue.
Never quite sure who to trust, or who to believe, Danielle is also not sure whether she wants to continue down this path. Reunited with the friend she did the favor for, she enters the world of computer hackers and discovers new possibilities. Action-packed, working toward a higher purpose, the book is a good read and kept me entertained.
