The action set-pieces are perhaps the book’s best feature; I’m not sure I believe them, but they are certainly clever and exciting. Michael and Theresa are also witty and likeable main characters, and the puzzle of the necklace and its relationship to the ill-starred romance between Amanda Gray and her then-boyfriend, Harrison, the eccentric genius who directed the Egyptian film, held my interest. The story and characters aren’t as complex as those in Mayne’s Jessica Blackwood series, but if you enjoy a lively story with plenty of perils and ingenious solutions thereto and a Hollywood background, you’ll like this. The author says that this, too, will become a series, and I’ll probably sign up for Michael and Theresa’s next adventure.
The story is quite innovative. Michael is somebody who looks like an actor who uses him for his double both in and out of movies. Unlike the real actor, Michael is an honorable cop who also happens to have a very high IQ and a soft spot for beautiful smart women. Theresa is a gorgeous model/actor who also happens to be smart, very athletic, drives very fast on a motorcycle, and loves to win.
The two goes through incredible adventures at breakneck speeds. The novel barely hesitates for a breath from the first page to the last. The only fly in the ointment is the spelling. About every few pages, there is a mispelled word. The mispelling is real and not typographical since the mispelled word sounds the way that one would say the word, e.g. breaks for brakes. The book needs an editor who can spell.
It's all on the bizarre but light side and pretty good reading. Not for those who like their mysteries to puzzles but should be right down the alley for those more interested in the boy-girl adventures.
