The main character is a wife mother and lawyer. She is a woman continually forced to disconnect emotionally from the situations around her to function. It is not that she does not love, fear, or hate. The problem is she feels her emotions so deeply that if she allowed herself to experience them fully she would be paralyzed and unable to act, and someone would die. Her rock, her husband, is missing. The man that kidnapped him is already responsible for thousands of deaths, and he is not finished yet in his quest for power. The only thing she can be sure of is that more will die in this undeclared war that is hidden from the rest of the country. The one person that she tried to keep ignorant and safe, her son, puts himself at risk to save his father. The characters in this continuing series should all have bleeding ulcers from the tension of their daily lives as they try to survive a conspiracy they neither wanted or were prepared for.
We will not reveal any more of the plot because you need to start at the beginning of the series to follow this convoluted story with more twists and layers than an onion. We look for to the next installment. The plot line is consistent and like Dan Brown's conspiracy stories faced paced.
One of the things that I admire about the writing in this series is how intimately we get to know the characters. For instance, we have always known that Norman's son, Ned, is a very smart kid. He was able from a young age to fix just about any mechanical or electronic device. In this book we find out what a genius Ned really is. His plan to save his dad is as complicated as it is brilliant. Can such a plan by a young boy work against a very powerful organization?
One of the Management kingpins, George Clemente, has a plan to make a new organization from the ashes of the civil war that has devastated Management. On the surface, his plan seems good. He wants to take the best parts of Management and the Circle and join them together to form the ultimate superpower. But beneath the surface, does he just want to be a dictator without any consideration for the goals of either Management or the Circle? Those organization sought to lift up the middle class. Does Clemente share that goal or is it just all about him?
The events in this book serve to make Wallis Jones conclude that the only course left for her is to fight fire with fire. She may be playing on another team's field, but she doesn't have to follow the old rules. Her team is her family. This old conflict has become her fight. She will do what it takes to win this game. Can't wait to see all of this unfold in the next books of the series.
