"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Worse was the bait and switch with the heroine, (spoilers ahead) a supposedly strong female who loses her very strong principles, morals, life goals and common sense when the evil enemy offers her nice clothes, cosmetics, and a nice home—with the enemy. Incredibly sexist and patronizing in a number of ways, and more telling of how the author views women.
Imagine reading a Jason Bourne story where Bourne ditches the chase, his intelligence, morals, life goals, etc, and beds the evil enemy as soon as they offer him a top-of-the-line barbecue grill and front row seats to Knicks games. For men, this would be a comedy. For women, this is supposed to be serious?
I like to support indie authors, but this is one I wish I hadn’t spent money on.
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!
I thoroughly enjoyed the first three novels despite the fact the books are more inclined to tell the story rather than show it. It was however done with humour and provided a smooth even levelled pace which took us to the conclusion in a satisfactory manner.
I struggled to connect with the characters but did enjoy their escapades and certainly there was plenty of action, deaths and danger throughout to keep us page turning. An entertaining read.
