This novel was an excellent read. I wasn't able to put it down once. She made this book a wonderful suspense. The plot was excellent, by introducing the troubles in people lives and there sacrifices to cope with bad experiences. I'd recommend this novel to everybody who loves learning new things.

This was by far, the worst book I have read in a number of years. It was lent to me by a friend and I have to admit, I owe him a beer because he made me promise not to burn it and I did anyhow.
The dialogue is laughable. The characters ridiculous. A gradeschooler with ADHD probably could have polished this novel. In short, don't waste your time with this book. It will make you hate your self and hate the world.
That is all.

Format: Hardcover
I got the unabridged recorded book from the library. I kept listening to it (9 CDs!) amazed by how flat and stupid it was. It's hard to believe that the author has any experience in writing novels. The dialog is terrible, and the relationships unbelievable. The conspiracy behind the whole plot is ludicrous.
The reader, Cristine McMurdo-Wallis, is very boring to listen to. One character is supposed to be from Liverpool, but he almost never sounds English, let alone "Liverpudlian." The other characters are all from the south, but they seldom sound southern. Her voice just drones on and on. . .

Iris Johansen, Body of Lies (Bantam, 2002)
I picked this up after having the first two chapters sent to me on the chapteraday mailing list and reluctantly allowing myself to get intrigued. The first chapter really does pack a wallop. I just with the rest of the book could have carried out the promise.
It doesn't, unfortunately. After the first chapter comes long, drawn-out setup that is in no way justified by the payoff. Robert Parker does the same thing, but he does it in about a third of the number of pages per novel used by Johansen. The woman could use a few lessons in tight prose and how it heightens tension in a novel. But this one's a lost cause; by the time her protagonist finally gets around to reconstructing the face on the skull, will the reader still care? Not this one. (zero)

Iris Johansen's "Body of Lies" is a fairly entertaining novel.
The cat and mouse aspect is well done, as the hunted do not use super human powers to keep on the move. As the story progresses, a ticking clock subplot propels the action.
A secret society lends an almost credible conspiracy theory to the mix.
Throw in a resourceful hardboiled British bodyguard with a dubious background, a corrupt Senator, a seemingly average reporter, a skillful assassin and a covert research project involving fuel cells and things move rapidly.
Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan is terrific when doing her job recreating the face on the skull of an unknown murder victim. When fretting about her romance everything bogs down and becomes a pitiful soap opera.
Colorful villains, some wolves in sheep's clothing and the nefarious secret organization keep Eve and Atlanta detective Joe Quinn hopping and the pages turning.
The ending was too pat.
