A World I Never Made - Lepore, James

A World I Never Made is about a father and daughter who never connected in life. When Pat Nolan finds out his daughter has committed suicide in Paris he realizes he's lost his chance to make amends for the life he missed with her. Then he discovers that it's not Megan's body in the morgue and begins an adventure that will change his life.

Pursued by terrorists, Megan is on the run and enlists the help of her father with clues left in her wake.  Pat is helped by an unlikely French police detective and together they lead the terrorists and security forces on a chase across Europe.

This is a first novel and has some rough edges.  Clearly Lepore is not a gun person.  I'm always amazed that authors will research the most minute details in some areas and then assume everything they've seen in movies or read in comic books is true about guns.  In spite of the rough edges I really enjoyed this book.  Highly recommended.
