Format: Mass Market Paperback
I like thrillers, I like political thrillers, I like romances. This book didn't succeed on any of those levels.
The skeleton of the story was fine but it didn't go anywhere. It wasn't that it was far fetched, it's not like we haven't seen the supposed good guys doing bad things. It was that there were a whole lot of words but not a whole lot of substance. I felt like I was just passing through the story, there was nothing to grab the reader.
Alex whined a lot (and we're supposed to believe she's this tough chick photojournalist but she whines an awful lot for a supposed tough chick), Judd brooded a lot, Logan (yes, we know he's a billionaire) ordered people around and said he'd do anything to save his wife a lot. There was panic, running and hiding, some action and mystery but it never fell into a cohesive and compelling storyline.
I haven't read Johansen before, this was a impulse, the book was on the "Your librarian likes" shelf and I took a chance. It wasn't awful or poorly written, it just wasn't anything one way or the other.

She needs to hang up these tired, dried up characters that she has resurrected once again in another stale story.
This time around a photographer stumbles on a cover-up and Judd Morgan decides inexplicably to protect her. Bad things happen to good people, blah blah blah, and the novel painfully limps to a conclusion. There was no real tension or chemistry generated by any of the main characters. I also had a hard time following who were the bad guys and who were just fill-ins. The dialogue was boring, action and plot were predictable and as mentioned above, the characters are just recycled and unbelievable. For example, who would believe that a billionaire's wife would go around to disaster sites with a search team full-time? Sorry, doesn't work for me. I would love for Ms. Johansen to go back to writing historical romance. I've read all of her books, contemporary and historical and with rare exception, her historical books are far superior. Failing a return to the "good old days", maybe find a new set of folks to write about.

Im a big fan of Iris Johansen's books, but this one felt like it needed more time in editing. Plot line felt rushed, to many bad guys introduced without any background on why they're antagonists, and just a general lack of intensity which usually makes her books so interesting to read.

I actually enjoyed this book. After reading the premise, I thought it was going to be pretty hokey, but it turned out to be quite the fast-paced read--actually more like a movie script than a novel, and this is a good thing in this case. Johansen definitely knows how to tell a story and she and her characters are not afraid to get their hands dirty. Bravo. Would also recommend two stellar reads I've recently come across: Dan Brown's THE DA VINCI CODE and Jackson McCrae's BARK OF THE DOGWOOD--both very different from each other and this book, but great in their own right.

Ouch! Three stars?? No way! This may not be as good as THE UGLY DUCKLING or some of her other books, but in my humble opinion it deserves at least 4 stars if not 5. Plenty of excitement, fast pace, maybe not enough romance, but all in all a satisfactory read. Can't wait to read FATAL TIDE.

Who could ask for anything more? Iris Johansen really delivers in this book. Photojournalist Alex is caught in a web of lies and intrigue when there is an assassination plot against the president of the United States. Judd Morgan is hired to protect her. They dislike eachother but are drawn to one another. They share witty remarks and a whole lot of passion. They come to trust one another despite themselves and fall in love. The ending leaves us satisfied but wanting more. I definitely recommend it.

How can I say this? I almost never read "grocery store" books, or what might otherwise be referred to as mass market paperback. But a few years ago I read an Iris Johansen novel, Reap the Wind, while on vacation in Mexico and was blown away. It's a fabulous book and I could't put it down. My husband even read it and enjoyed it, and he's NEVER read a action/intrigue/romance type novel. So I bought a few more and pretty much enjoyed them all up until about a year ago. Her last few books - it's hard to believe it's the same author - expect the same characters keep appearing in convoluted ways. Dead Aim is the worst yet. The story is not interesting and the characters are lifeless. It seems she's cranking out after another on auto pilot. Iris - Please - write something new and substantial. It's an insult to your fans to put out these crappy books twice a year. These recent Johansen books are about half as long as some of her previous work, with no where near the intrigue, romance, or refreshing writing style as some of her previous books. I almost thing they are being ghost written by a formula flunky.
A much better choice is Reap the Wind which is a well developed page turner with real story and substance. Or if you're interested in historical fiction, The Tiger Prince. The same thing happened with Johansen's historical fiction. This one great book and then a bunch of "crank it out" junk. Iris needs to change genre's again if she can't do better than Dead Aim in the suspence/intrigue/romance genre. If Amazon had the option, I would give this book zero stars.
