In the latest installment, Emerson Knight’s friend Wayan Bagus was living on a deserted island until some government officials came and kicked him off. He went in search of Emerson because he needed help and figured that Emerson would be the man who could make that happen. In the meantime, Riley Moon is still at the Knight estate assisting Emerson in his wily escapades. Although she is not too sure of what she wants, after graduating from Harvard working for an eccentric billionaire was never her plan.
With the appearance of Wayan, Knight and Moon start to search for clues and stumble upon a conspiracy that has been in place for over a hundred years. This conspiracy has the craziest origins and is just hilariously unbelievable. One thing that I thought was cool was that this is the second book that I read this week that touches on
*********mild spoiler-Ignore if you choose to***********harvesting strange matter/exotic matter. Basically, that is matter (something physical that occupies space and has inertia proportional to its mass) that is hypothesized to occur in the core of neutron stars, or in the case of exotic matter deviates from normal matter with exotic properties.*********end of mild spoiler********
So I actually found that part of this book to be quite interesting.
Knight and Moon take on the mystery of what happened to Wayan’s island and enlist a few friends along the way. As always, they run into the craziest of people and the zaniest of situations. I did like the fact that Dangerous Minds was set in multiple locations, with my favorite being Yellowstone National Park. You might want to put a pin in that location if you are ever in a reading challenge that requires you to read a book about that National Park. Having been in enough reading challenges that is not a crazy statement. It could happen. Overall, this was a light read that delivered an afternoon of comedic relief with a touch of romance.
It’s obvious. It’s silly. It’s James Bond action at its funniest with a crazy billionaire who connects the dots when half of them are missing and a cousin who firmly believes in Bigfoot.
”What choice do I have but to be myself? Everyone else was already taken.”
It’s Riley who’s the straight man in all this while Evanovich pulls in memes from television and movies as they go after a group of the baddest bad guys.
Using third person omniscient point-of-view, we learn the thoughts, feelings, and actions of all the important characters as the narrator roams freely through the story.
It’s a tale to read when you don’t want to think too hard before you laugh.
An old friend and mentor of Emerson’s has lost his island. It’s disappeared. Now, islands just don’t do that, and Emerson’s interest is piqued.
It’s a journey of adventure, action, and daring escapes through lava tubes, boiling fields, and a forklift as they track down how an entire island can go missing, not only physically but on every official map put out by the U.S. government.
After losing her job in Curious Minds , 1, Riley Moon has become Emerson’s somewhat reluctant assistant. Her father is a sheriff back in Texas who, along with her brothers, is fascinated by NASCAR.
Emerson Knight is something of a crackpot, an immensely rich and brilliant nutjob with an interest in the metaphysical who loves to investigate. Vernon is Emerson’s cousin in semi-permanent residence in his own monster RV on the Mysterioso Manor estate. He’s also the host of a conspiracy blog, Mysterioso. Aunt Myra is Vernon’s mom, and she keeps house…and Emerson. Also living on the estate are a zooful of animals including Mr. Manfrengensen, a thieving monkey.
Wayan Bagus is a Buddhist monk who had been one of Emerson’s mentors.
Professor Marion White, a vulcanologist, teaches at George Mason University. Another friend, Milton, is a forensic photographer with the medical examiner’s office in D.C.

The Cover and Title
The cover is a gorgeous blue-violet with the author’s name large and in a gray-shaded yellow centered at the top, the series information in a pale lilac in the middle, and the medium-sized title in white at the bottom. Framing the series info and the title are a pair of palm trees in silhouette, leaning in towards the pale sliver of moon.
The title is all about that mad, despotic director and his henchmen, for they all have Dangerous Minds.
