Dr. Yoav Walberg is one **** of a lucky guy. He is heir to a huge fortune, engaged to a beautiful woman and is soon to be appointed to a senior position in a prestigious hospital. However, when his best friends become jealous of his success, they plot a devilish and sophisticated scheme against him. Will he notice the deadly spider webs woven around him in time to avoid the bite that will bring about his inevitable death? As fortune continues to play with him, after three miserable years, Dr. Walberg in tragic coincidence arrives in Tibet, where he has once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to start his life from scratch. After many years, he turned into the known and successful American businessman, Adam Defoe. Will Adam Defoe uncover the true story behind the attempt on his life? Will he pity the responsible? The powers he must outwit are very dangerous, and he finds himself, once again, fighting for his life.
This plot is predictable, yet unique, all at the same time. There is love, jealousy, betrayal (unquestioned), and revenge. The characters are all linked through their childhood, and sadly, our main character is unwavering in his loyalty to his friends, though they are not so loyal to him. In the end, he is betrayed by the lot of them, and the betrayal goes so far as to include his now ex-fiance.
After reinventing himself, he plots his revenge...so, yes, the story reads out much like many other stories do. Good guy is betrayed by those closest to him, but gets revenge in the end. I do like the character development, and the twists in the plot. This is definitely a quick read, but great for an early morning with my coffee.
