My objection to the Housewife Assassin character is summarized in this book by this quote from Lucky herself: "But still, something about being judge and jury bothered me. Not my universe, I guess. ... I knew their shades of gray would not be a comfortable place for this black and white gal." I simply don't feel comfortable accepting the premise of a "black ops" character as a heroine. I am better able to accept a James Bond, for example, with no pretense of a normal everyday housewife and mother who rationalizes gross illegality as if the established structures of even covert intelligence operations are sacrificed at the whim of a supposedly "elite" band of criminals.
The book, however, is enjoyable, although I skimmed parts of the Donna side of the narrative to return to the more likeable characters of the Lucky story. I'm sure that readers who, unlike me, are not uptight about the premise of the Housewife Assassin will be entertained.
My only disappointment was that Lucky's and Donna's narratives ended too soon.
Maybe another another duo adventure in the future? One that takes ACME onto Lucky's turf?
Even though my submission of names for Mona's twins was not selected, I was delighted with the final choices. (No, not going to reveal and be a spoiler...)
One more thing: the new cover illustrations on the Lucky Series have won me over. At first I was skeptical. No longer. The neon motif works!
