Here's the problem, I just finished this book and I can't remember half of it. It seemed such a confusing mass of information. I am sitting here and I can't even tell you why this Agent became involved in this investigation. The writing is fine and there are none of the ubiquitous editing issues. I just don't remember anything.
I am not familiar with this author. This is the first I've read and I see that there are a series with this main character. I am assuming this author is American. I am also assuming that she has limited knowledge of the US Embassy in London, the security protocols in place and the placement of the different representatives within the building. Having worked the and in the US Navy building just across the street (for 7 years) there are quite a few issues that I find particularly annoying. Those things would not bother someone unfamiliar. Truthfully, I did not get a sense that the author had spent much time in the UK with British nationals.
I would also like to point out that this woman, one who is an FBI Agent of some years was entirely to gullible. She should have realized the young woman was lying much, MUCH sooner.
There were too many characters, too many he said, she said. Someone did this, no not them... None of the characters have any redeeming qualities. I finished it only because I was hoping there was some great twist that would make such a hard slog worth it. No such luck.
I do not find anything redeemable about an inept female who lacks integrity, as the lead character. Seriously, I've read tons of books where idiots somehow come to their senses and become more likable with each chapter, but Ingrid Skyberg never evolved into a smart, amiable character.
The book starts with FBI agent Skyberg apprehending a purse snatcher, but losing full control of her catch due to answering her cell phone instead of hanging onto his collar. Not a super sensible or smart agent, IMO. Naturally Ingrid somehow lands a high power FBI assignment in London. And after that, the story became discombobulated to the point I finally gave up, not caring how it would end since not one character was fleshed out enough to make me care.
I rarely stop reading a book when I've finished three-fourths of it, and I rarely give a low 2 star review because I understand how much heart and soul goes into writing a novel. I'm being generous with this 3 star in hopes the author will take notes from some lower reviews and put more effort into writing a cohesive storyline and please, please develop the characters so readers feel like they know them on some level. No more dufus women. I stopped reading Evonavich's Stephanie Plum series because after all these years, Plum is still a bumbling idiot, which was fun for three or four novels, but became irritating when we realized she would never mentally mature.
Please show us Ingrid has learned from stupid mistakes, and let others be the bungling fools, not your lead character!
