Next, this author could really use a thesaurus. Every third reply is listed as a "retort". It got so bad that I had Kindle count them. There are 93 occurrences of "retort" in this book, and most of them clearly demonstrate that the author doesn't know the meaning of "retort".
It's a great plot with pretty interesting characters, but at 52%, I can no longer get past the awful writing and/or editing. "Amateurish" is way too kind. I want to finish it, but it's just too childishly written
The element of suspense is built up from the word go and continues through the book. The protagonist Alina has a measure of uncertainty and mystery surrounding her when she returns to her New Jersey town after 10 years and meets with her friends Angela and Stephanie. Both her friends sense the difference in their friend, her acquired strength and toughness. Stephanie, an FBI agent perceives Alina's smart ways of checking the various aspects of a crime scene in a homicide. Alina's
Ex, now an FBI agent adds to the confusion and the whole situation is further complicated by the arrival of Damon, an erstwhile friend of Alina from her boot camp days.
The complexities and dilemmas of all the different settings, getting rid of the enemies of the country are resolved in such a beautiful way that one has to read the book to understand and enjoy the smooth and easy flowing narrative with well etched and captivated characters.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable reading experience and there was enough of edginess to arouse my curiosity to read the next book. Thank you for an extremely interesting series of books, Ms. Browning.

Firstly I love action thrillers, my favourite genre and read some great authors and was looking forward to this first in the series, an action thriller with a female assassin...
Story...Alina Maschik was one of the best. She never missed. Yet, two years ago in Cairo, she missed her shot at one of the world’s most wanted terrorists. Now, he’s back. This time, he’s on US soil.
Given the opportunity to redeem herself, Alina’s objective is simple: find the terrorist and complete her mission. But when the target leads her back to her hometown in New Jersey, the situation is anything but simple. Confronted with old girlfriends, her ex-fiancé and the Jersey mob, Alina must face her past as she races against an invisible clock.
But as bodies start to pile up, a cunning and invisible assassin threatens to destroy everything she holds close. Accustomed to working alone, Alina must now rely on old loyalties and new partnerships to help her defeat this new threat, and save the lives of thousands of Americans, without failing a second time.
Yes everything is in place , great lead character,, great character in Hawk, loved Raven... Story good, friends good, but our action hero spent 70% to 80% of her life in a computer room in a basement of a house. I know the importance of created characters for a new series, their personality, and the better you know them the more you enjoy the book.
When the lead character Viper is heading to perform her duties, we are 90% to 93 % in the book, this is late. Not too many surprises or shocks, yes great relationship built throughout the book with Viper and Hawk.
I am sure this series will get better, as you know the characters, but sadly was let down with the pace of this book.
Really 3.5 stars for me. An honest review.
Started well but then became just utter nonesense. Binned it at 30%.
How there are six books in the series is beyond my comprehension.
