There is SO much more going on in this book than what the synopsis indicates and I promise you won't be disappointed. To me, the overall plot was not the bulk of why this book was so amazingly brilliant (but make no mistake, the story was thrilling). To me the most brilliant part about this book was camaraderie between Jack and Landis. Since I don't want to give anything away to those who haven't read it yet, all I will say is that Jack and Landis demonstrate what I have been waiting to see in these books...a loyalty that transcends the EOO. And their banter and chemistry is flawless. I would think that it would be difficult to convey that in written form, but the authors did an exceptional job of making all of the nuances of their interactions really come through to the reader.
The authors are also getting really good (much to my enjoyment) of making me think while I'm reading. You have to pay attention if you are geek like me and like to try to "figure it out" before the story ends. They had me guessing and wondering quite bit, asking myself "where are they going with this?" or "how does that fit into this?". And yeah, they threw in a few small red herrings that threw me off a bit, but that's half the fun.
I don't want to give away the book, I just really wanted to come here and let everyone who chooses to read this review and the authors know that this book really is brilliant. It's fast paced, fun, serious, thought provoking, provocative, and just plain awesome.
There is action and angst and tough girl attitude all over the place. It's great. the conspiracy plots are well thought out and make sense in the Elite Operatives' world. I love to see so many women in the series as a whole really prove that women can be brave and heroic, even when somewhat flawed themselves. So there is hope for every one of us.
I know it's a niche market, but even in my escapism I like a little real. I'm surprised at the concentration of so many lesbians in each story. I would love to live in that world, maybe if I moved to Seattle, ha!.
One other thing I love about the series is that , again it is a niche market, and while a really steamy sex scene or 2 truly grab ones attention, the story itself is what pulls you (the reader) through the story, not the eventual hook-up. These books have story, characters and plot with a little bit of hook up.
Read on my sisters!
Nice job ladies and thanks for leaving us hanging with the new threat. TQ sounds like a real bi-ch. Can't wait for book six.
Jack and Chase enlist the help of Heather Snyder to track a suspect. Heather is a fashion designer by day and a high-class call girl by night. Together Jack and Chase develope an elaborate plan which takes the team to Asia and then to Europe in an exciting, and dangerous game of "cat and mouse".
Baldwin and Alexiou are wonderful at giving readers fully developed characters, great locations, and some very sexy scenes. The dialogue between Jack and Chase is particularly witty as the two former friends try to work out their differences. Heather is very appealing as a woman who is forced to use desparate measures.
The Elite Operative series is great, and one that this reviewer hopes will go on forever!
