The writing is very good, the character development is good. However, this is an action thriller, and in typical action thriller style, the plot doesn't always make sense and there will be an over reliance on coincidence. The plot has major holes, and while it makes for a fun read, the plot really doesn't make much sense.. Not to give too much away, but competing parties are trying to prevent the scientist from getting to the U.S. There are numerous easy opportunities to accomplish this, yet the plot relies on the extreme measures. It makes no sense why a "security specialist" would accompany a government official when the U.S. Government has plenty of people on board who perform that function. There are concidences abound, including Jamie's love interest (an army MP) just happening to be on the case. And coincidentally Jamie knows the foreign agent. You get the idea.
I also have issues with Jamie. Jamie is pretty naive for a "security specialist". She doesn't have a healthy level of cynicism. She misses some major clues. And she spends a lot of time trying to gain her father's approval.
In the next book I'll be looking for a more realistic plot - less plot holes and less reliance on coincidence, and also let's have Jamie be a bit smarter.
The positives: the writing itself was excellent and I assume from the quality and lack of errors that it was professional edited.
Worst quote: “My father was an army officer [2-star general]. They don’t make a lot of money. Not even the generals.” I couldn’t decide whether to be insulted or amused by this. 2-star generals’ (O-8) base pay starts at $9,399 per MONTH. Plus $2.000+ quarters allowance (housing) and $200 or so for rations (food). But that’s for 18 years of service, and no one makes 2 stars at 18 years, so actual pay is much higher.
All in all, an okay read. 3 stars.
I did not feel like I was reading a book but rather listening to a friend tell me a story. I do not know how the author did that, but the whole book felt personal and that is an awesome experience for a reader to have. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author is very talented in creating tension and suspense with just the written word. I could not turn the pages fast enough to see what would happen next. There is more than one secret to unravel in this book and my attention never wavered. There are many twists and turns that had me second guessing throughout the entire book.
The characters are well developed and three dimensional. Jamie is one tough woman and she knows how to take care of herself. But she also has a vulnerable side which made her seem more human to me. The way she tries to win her father’s approval and her relationship woes made for some very touching moments.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted mystery suspense with lots of twists and turns. This is the second book I have read by this author and I really liked them both. Do yourself a favor and check them out.
I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review. I would like to thank Netgalley and Random House Publishing Group-Alibi for the opportunity to read and review

I was really enjoying this book until the last 50 or so pages.
Then it turned to a super hero book.
