As a child, Elaine Brogan had a special bond with her father and she was detail-oriented, a gift that will help her later in life. When Elaine was sixteen, she became a model, but, after spending a huge amount of money for her humble condition, she realised that everything the agency promised her was just a scam. The sum of money she received back was actually counterfeit. Unfortunately, her father paid for his daughter’s naivety. He was wrongly accused of “a Class C felony, punishable by up to 12 years in prison” and he was also accused of theft because “her father had been robbing construction sites to put her through Bromley” – a better school for Elaine. Patrick’s sacrifice for his daughter’s future and the fact that he didn’t want to drag her with him into jail really made me cry and think of my dad, who would have probably done the same for me.
Elaine’s life drastically changes after her father commits suicide in prison. She seeks revenge against Ronald Eskew, the man who gave her the counterfeit money, and joins the Secret Service. Elaine goes through many tough tests which make her a cold, calculated, independent woman, aware that her beauty that can be used as a tool. Isn’t she fit to become a secret agent? She is harshly trained to react fast to unexpected situations such as terrorist attacks and threats against the President of the USA.
Overall, this book was interesting and different from what I usually read. I can’t say I was totally into it, I enjoyed the prologue and Elaine’s story until her father’s death. The college period and the training part made me lose interest a bit, until the secret agent was sent to Bulgaria, where her missions caught my attention again. However, the jaw-dropping twists towards the end tempt me to buy the whole series. I bet there are many people like me, who would like to learn more about Elaine’s journey. Until the next review, find a little time to read a great book, old or new.
Wells writing is quick and to the point. There's no babbling brooke descriptions. It's just how I like it: action, tension, suspense, your eyes can't move fast enough across the page reading.
His maine character, Elaine is smart and cunning. One tough cookie. She's somebody that you can't help but become invested in from the moment she's introduced. Even after being betrayed time and again, she never stops fighting. My kind of girl, my kind of main character. Secret Service Training, counterfeit money, murder, mobs, a rich hot Italian, a bit of romance. This book has it all.
I wish I could give this book ten stars! One of the better books I've read in a long time. Elaine Brogan kicked some major butt and i can't wait to see what she does next. I'm hoping not to have to wait too long for books 4, 5, and 6!
If you're looking for a fast-paced page turner, you just found it!!
Main characters change in this series. In Books 1,2 & 3, Elaine Brogan is a federal agent who has a natural knack for being able to detect discrepancies in real and counterfeit bills. The story winds around her rise from a poor child to the status of the "best detector of counterfeit bills in the world." It continues in her betrayal by a colleague she trusts, to the Russians, and ultimately to Giorgio Cattoretti, a master counterfeiter, a producer of fashion knockoffs, a thief and a murderer. He seduces Elaine with the "good life" Money, jewels, fine clothes, trips to exotic places. It is her "mission" to discover how he produces such passable counterfeit bills, but she is pulled into the fine life thinking that Cattoretti is a charming gentleman since he treats her so well...We discover differently as his plans for Elaine are made known to us, and then, we are on tenterhooks wondering whether Elaine will survive!
Mike Wells plays these books very nicely. He leaves us wondering at the end of each book, needing to continue onto the next installment of the series to find out what will happen next. Catoretti bothers me. I want to like him, and just as I start to feel a kind of sympathy for him, he does something unforgivable and I am reminded that he is a ruthless murderer. I have read book 4 already and am looking forward to the next installment. This series will grab you too! I highly recommend it, you will NOT want to put it down!
