FBI agent Ingrid Skyberg is asked to find a young woman who is 8 months pregnant. She immediately finds her but someone, and the girl herself, does not want her to stay found. So she disappears again. Why? Now Ingrid has to determine who is lying and why. Who are the other people looking for the girl and why? Ingrid finds dead ends, sticky situations, and plenty of nonstop action. I meant to read only for a while, but then I reached the end and realized I wasn't in London (I was home); it was dark outside; I had missed preparing dinner; and worst of all. . . the book was over.
The main plot is completely wrapped up in the end, which I appreciated. However, just FYI, there were hanging subplots (I didn't mind that at all). One of them was Gasp! Oh! No! Not Natasha! In another one, an unexpected change of boss will lead to bumpy times ahead for Ingrid in the (there'sjustgottabea) next book. There is no need to worry about distracting errors. The book is very readable.
Received an ARC for an honest review.
Wanted to fast read the final book (that I bought cheap just the day I finished the ARC, paying a promo price which makes me feel bad), but did not find the time yet.
If nothing was changed, a bit much with the bad planning (car needs gas, iPhone runs out of power).
And solving everything on her own.
Wanted to give 4 stars, but two events prevented me from it: one chapter needed at least an explaining sentence more - for me there was a part of the story missing, not from the main storyline, but one of Ingrids bad decisions, there could have been a whole chapter about it, from me just one word, not to spoil it: rooftop, and when you read it, you know what I mean. This for me is half a star less, I will check the published ebook wether that was changed, it may be and change the rating and the review accordingly.
Added edit January 9th, 2016: I read the final version and all (few) errors regarding grammar and spelling where gone. But the problems regarding the decisions and sudden cut off at the end of a chapter with no further (1 or 2 sentences would have been enough) info, just do not read good, I am not sure wether this happened in the other books, but there is a reason why I never gave 5 stars and only a few times 4 stars.
The final half star less was the twist at the end, while I thought she was making an interesting choice and the series could take a turn in an interesting direction, that was reversed with another twist which I seriously do not like. I will look into the next book or the reviews but this decision may be the end of reading the series for me, sorry.
Regardless, I miss Eva Hudson, hers was a sad story and the new author has done a good job, even if I may leave the series.
The plot layers of Shoot First overlap successfully to deliver an interesting mix of crime from the US which affects the teenage gestational surrogate for a high profile London couple, a famous actor and an artist.
Kate-Lynn is 8 months pregnant and she should be in California for the birth. She unexpectedly shows up at the couple’s home in London and overnight goes mysteriously missing. So the frantic search is on for the teenage mother by Agent Skyberg at the request of the Ambassador, to locate Kate-Lynn before the baby is born and before an assassin finds her.
Agent Skyberg mistakenly follows wrong information which puts her in the hospital and inevitably causes an attack for her troubled friend, Natasha McKittrick.
. Shoot First is a must read for Agent Ingrid Skyberg fans !
Ingrid Skyberg is one of my favorite literary characters, gutsy, smart and an American living in London!
In this book she does not seem quite as developed as in the other books but I think with time Jo will find her inner Ingrid.
The ending of the quite involved story did not match the events leading up to that conclusion. It was as if it just needed to be ended. The story line between the Fathers could have used more depth and a peek into their future would have been nice. And knowing where the young Mother was going with her life? Loose ends that c would have been tied up.
I do look forward to the next Ingrid Skyberg adventure, involving Russians I am sure!
