Chandler has some down time and looking forward to a date when she finds herself being hunted, and not knowing who to trust. And from there on, she's running, fighting, shooting, and basically doing feats that most normal people cannot just to stay alive and stop the Russians and her crazy siblings from getting their hands on a remote device that can launch bombs from anywhere in the world.
We get a little bit of Jack Daniels and a whole lot of killing too, but Chandler does come out slightly on top with an ally or two too.
Reading Level: Adult--explicit sex scene
Recommended for: Fans of high-octane thrillers
Trigger Warnings: violence, murder, sexual assault, statutory rape
My Thoughts: I read the first Jack Daniels book several years ago and really enjoyed it. I've been slowly building up my library of J.A. Konrath books ever since, and am a bit aggravated that I have to read this book before I completed it and was ready because of the new Terms of Service with Vine running me on Three, the third book in this series, but that's neither here nor there...
Say whatever else you will about this book, it was really entertaining. It is so fast-paced that the entire story takes place over the course of a single day, and it just never stops--other than that one sex scene, which was rather gratuitous and over which I skipped altogether, and which led to the rating decrease. I had no idea how accurate the weapons information is, how realistic the overall idea is, but I was entertained, and couldn't stop turning those pages, so for me, it was a success as a book. Recommended for adrenaline-junkies, fans of high-octane thrillers, fans of Konrath's writing, and fans of thrillers in general. Check it out.
Series Information: Flee is the first book in the Codename: Chandler series.
Exposed is a novella featuring Chandler, and may be read after Flee
Book 2: Spree, to be read next
Book 3: Three, upcoming
Disclosure: I purchased this book for myself so I could read the whole series after receiving the third book through Vine. All opinions are my own.
Synopsis: CODENAME: CHANDLER
She's an elite spy, working for an agency so secret only three people know it exists. Trained by the best of the best, she has honed her body, her instincts, and her intellect to become the perfect weapon.
Then her cover is explosively blown, and she becomes a walking bulls-eye. Stalked by assassins who want the secrets she holds, and those who'd prefer she die before talking.
Now Chandler has twenty-four hours to thwart a kidnapping, stop a psychopath, uncover the mystery of her past, retire five equally-trained contract killers, avoid a tenacious cop named Jack Daniels, and save the world from nuclear annihilation, all while dodging 10,000 bullets.
Buckle up. It's going to be one helluva ride.

This book is entertaining but I wanted some 'down time' in the story to learn more about the characters. This is my first Chandler book and I felt like I'd missed out when I finished it.
I also felt that there was too much action, too many fights, and it made one chapter blend into the next until you lose sight of the specifics. There were also lots of '5% change to live but overturned impossible odds' too many times, coupled with what I'd imagine to be complete disregard for substantial bodily damage which doesn't seem to hinder or even come into play later in the book.
So, if you're a fan of the series I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I did too, but not as much as I could have if the story came up for breath and at times toned it down a bit. It'd be nice to see some clever solutions to problems instead of every solution revolving around blazing guns or fistfights.
As a reference, I categorise Jack Higgins novels as fairly 'low on story, big on action' books which are fun to read but fairly 'light' otherwise. The difference there is more focus on characters and plot instead of just rolling from fight to fight.
I'm undecided if I'll read another book from these authors. I'm more likely to pick up Higgins, Follett, Smith or Baldacci.
It was completely over the top and lacking in plausibility and realism. The heroine seemed to have an incredible sense of smell. It seemed so acute it was almost like a superpower. It did get a bit boring always reading about what she had just smelled.
The story itself is quite linear and it does lack proper twists and turns. Some things didn't really seem to make sense.
The writing style was okay and I can certainly see why books from these two authors are popular.
