This book was definitely full of surprises, and cliffhangers.
At first I didn’t think I’d like it, mainly because I was put off by Lily. But like I was the first time I read a book by Linda Howard, I was again surprised by the plot and emotional feelings I felt.
Lily was by far after the first chapter my favorite character. Her disguises were hilarious and totally a surprise. My favorite being the bright loud wild child that lost the Nervi Org. at the airport. She made a large emotional life change throughout the plot. Going from this woman who seemed like she was emotionally disconnected but blinded by grief as she went on this rampage to take down this company. Then she met Swain and that’s where the change started. She started very slowly to be able to deal with her feelings and grief. She also started to feel remorse in the killings…shown in the end when Swain ended things for Dr. Giordano.
I pretty much wanted to murder him with my bare hands the entire book, for hiding who he was and his true intentions from Lily. With the way things progressed in the novel I figured he’d give up his job and go underground with her permanently when it was all said and done.
The very last few pages of the final chapter when Howard lead us to believe that Swain had after all betrayed Lily, I bawled buckets. I threw a fit and envisioned his very tortuous death and tried to come up with a reason as to why or how a human being could do that to another human being, Especially when he had admitted that he truly loved her and her him. I was filled with rage ad the “tragic” ending and almost closed the book before reading the epilogue.
He was definitely swoon worthy. He can definitely take me for a speeding ride down a highway in a sports car anytime.
This novel was full of lots of twists and turns. Things that I did not see coming and probably would never have imagined. It kept the book interesting and it was hard to put down.
I can’t wait to read more of Linda Howard’s novels.
